〖疯子〗

    假设一日清晨,你正走在路上要去工作,有个人无礼地向你叫喊辱骂,霎时,你一听到这辱骂声,正常的心便立刻转变了,你觉得很不舒服,觉得很愤怒和受辱,所以你想要报复。

    几天以后,另一个人来你家拜访,并且告诉你:“嘿,那几天辱骂你的那个人,他疯了!而且已经好几年了!他都是这样辱骂每个人,但是没有人会去在意他说的话。”当你听到这儿,霎时,自在了起来。那以往积郁在你身上数日的愤怒和不快,完全地消失了,为什么呢?因为现在你已知道事情的真相。以前你还不知道时,认为那个人是正常的,所以你会憎恨他,同时也导致你痛苦。一旦真相大白,事过境迁:“噢,他是个疯子!事情原来如此。”

    当你了解到这点时,你觉得很舒服,因为你已亲身体验。了解了以后,你就能放下。假如你不明白真相,就会去执著。当你认为那位辱骂你的人是正常时,你可能会杀了他,但当你发现事情的真相——他精神失常,你便觉得舒服多了。这就是了解真理。

    一个见法的人也有类似的经验。贪、嗔、痴的消失,是以同样的方式消失的。当我们不了知这三毒时,我们会认为:“我能够怎样呢?我的贪和嗔是如此炽盛。”这并不是清明的认知,跟以为那疯子是神智健全其实是一样。只有当我们最后知道他精神失常时,我们的焦虑才得以释怀。没有任何人能告知你这些,唯有当心亲自体认时,它才能绝灭和舍弃执著。

Crazy Man

Suppose one morning, you're walking to work and a man starts yelling insults at you. As soon as you hear his insults, your mind gets agitated. You don't feel so good, you feel angry and hurt, and you want to get even! A few days later, another man comes to your house and tells you, "Hey, that man who abused you the other day, he’s crazy! Has been for years! He abuses everybody like that. Nobody takes notice of anything that he says." As soon as you hear this, you are suddenly relieved. That anger and hurt that you've pent up within you all these days melt away completely. Why? Because now you know the truth. Before, you didn't. You thought that man was normal, so you were angry at him and that caused you to suffer. As soon as you found out the truth, however, everything changed: "Oh, he's mad! That explains everything!"

When you understand the truth, you feel fine because you know for yourself. Understanding, you can then let go. If you don't know the truth, you cling right there. When you thought that the man who abused you was normal, for example, you could have killed him. But when you found out the truth, that he was mad, you felt much better. This is knowledge of the truth. Someone who sees the Dhamma has a similar experience. When attachment, aversion and delusion disappear, they disappear in the same way. As long as we don't know these things, we think, "What can I do? I have so much greed and aversion." This is not clear knowledge. It's just the same as when we thought the madman was sane. Until we learned that he was really otherwise, we weren't able to let go of our hurt and anger. Only when the mind sees for itself, can it uproot and relinquish attachment.
