Jar in Water—The Master Tells Stories 2 水中壺—《證嚴上人說故事2》

本漫畫書為證嚴上人開示的佛典故事、寓言改編而成,共十二則,每則故事皆蘊含道德哲理。證嚴上人以淺顯易懂的方式講述佛典故事,此書以生動的漫畫表現,讓讀者隨著故事的起伏轉折,領略到佛典故事的智慧,並教導讀者因緣果報的觀念,培養正知正見,體悟人生道理。

本書以第六則故事〈水中壺〉作為書名。故事中,年輕人無法接受父親因病而逝的事實,佛陀巧施妙法,用兩個分別裝滿油和石頭的壺,沉入河底。石沉油浮,就如同善業與惡業的上升與沉淪。人往生後何去何從,取決於生前所作所為,故起心動念及言行舉止都要從善去惡。

第五則故事〈大地萬物皆有用〉。 故事中的小沙彌,自恃小聰明卻闖了大禍,最終明白了道理—每一件事都有它的用處,每一個人都有他的特長,因此必須尊重萬物及其良能。

◎內容簡介:

Introduction

This book is a collection of 12 stories told by Dharma Master Cheng Yen which come alive with vivid illustrations, allowing readers to easily capture the wisdom of Buddhist teachings as they follow the twists and turns of each story. Through the stories, readers will learn about the karmic law of cause and effect, as well as to cultivate right views and correct thinking, and to comprehend the meaning of life. 

Jar in Water is the title of the sixth story in the book. In this story, a young man could not come to terms with the passing of his father, so the Buddha wisely devised a way to help him understand the law of karma. He asked the young man to fill a jar with oil and another with rocks, and then throw both jars into a river. The rocks sank while the oil floated, just as how good karma will help one to rise while bad karma will cause one to sink. Where a person goes after death depends on what he does when he is alive. Therefore, we should be careful of our every thought, word, and action.

In the fifth story, All Things in the World Have Their Purpose, an arrogant young monk caused a big trouble because he overrated his intelligence. In the end, he realized an important principle —everything has its function and every person has his own strengths; hence, one must respect all beings and their potentials.
