Tiếng Anh Phật Giáo: Lesson 9: The great enlightenment
Now we see that the prince had looked in many places to find the truth, but so far had not successful .He had read the Holy Books of the Brahmins and tried to find it there, but had not been successful. He had examined into the services and sacrifices of the Hindu temples, but had been disgusted and saddened by the terrible cruelties ha had seen there. Then he had joined the five priests and followed their example in torturing his body, but all to no purpose; the Truth seemed to be as far away as ever. There remained only one thing for him to do, and that was to look within his own mind and see if he could find it by deep meditation (thinking deeply and correctly on a thing).
So he came to a great tree and sat under its shade on the ground resolving not to get up until he had found what he was looking for.
Meditation was very hard for him at first, for all sorts of wandering thoughts seem to come into his mind instead. Pictures of the joys of his father’s palace, the faces of his wife and baby son, the desire for pleasure and power, all these seemed to crowd his mind and banish away any serious thoughts he had. However, he persevered and at last was able to drive these temptations away.
Then gradually the answer to all that he was seeking shone clearly in his mind, ignorance was destroyed forever and he saw the Truth of the existence of suffering, that ignorance might be destroyed by walking the Noble Eightfold Path which leads to peace and true happiness.
So did the Prince Siddhartha, beneath the Sacred Bodhi tree, become the Supreme Buddha, Teacher of all living beings. He has fought the hard, long battle with ignorance and selfishness, and had won the fight. Before him we saw the Truth he had won the fight. Before him he saw the Truth he had sought for so long, and he entered into the state of peace and happiness called by Buddhists “Nirvana”. His great Renunciation had not been in vain, for he bought the glad message of hope to all mankind, a message that will never die because it is the Truth, and Truth is Eternal.
The Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path are what the Buddha found, and all who would win the same peace and happiness must learn about these win the same peace and happiness must learn about these. Truths and walk in the Path he gave. As I told you before, all he did can be done by each one of us; we can find Nirvana and enter its happiness any time we give up the false self and destroy the ignorance which is in our minds. This ignorance causes us to make many mistakes, which of course bring us suffering.
