勝鬘學院攜手宿霧佛光人冬令濟貧

12月13日,菲律賓佛光山宿霧慈恩寺舉行一年一度的”冬令濟貧”活動,佛光人募集600份救濟包,與慈恩寺周圍千家貧困戶結緣,期許其歡度聖誕節。今年,來自台灣勝鬘學院的帶隊法師和學員們,來到菲律賓,加入濟貧隊伍,與菲律賓大眾廣結善緣。

 

“阿彌陀佛代表的是無量光,無量壽。”菲律賓佛光山總住持永光法師活動前為大眾慈悲開示,帶領大眾唱誦“阿彌陀佛”佛號一百遍,聲聲佛號,飽含無限祝福。

 

“現場讓人很感動,念佛號是一個因,種下的因,將來必會成果,活動很有意義。”勝鬘學院羅淑珠學員分享心得,並讚歎佛光人在菲律賓的弘法。

 

今年開始,慈恩寺與菲聖卡羅大學合作,為居民提供各類優質公益課,讓他們在佛光山不僅收穫溫暖,更收穫知識。“感謝佛光山的慈悲,也希望大家都多多來上課。”獲得年終全勤獎的一居民舉著獎品自豪分享,她每個月公益課時間,都早早拿著ID來簽到上課,年末就會根據簽到次數獲得獎品。

 

冬令濟貧進行了二十馀年,越來越多人關心社會民生,奉獻自己的愛心,今年更新增醫藥、文具等救濟品,給人歡喜,給人希望,結下很多善緣。

菲佛光人傳關懷 佛光普照宿務監獄

  • 2

菲律賓佛光山監寺永寧法師和宿務慈恩寺有霖法師,二十一日帶領宿務藝術團成員和宿務第二分會會長OJ HOFER和幹部JOSE到宿務監獄(Cebu Provincial Detention Rehabilitation Center),帶領八百位受刑人學習人間音緣歌曲「給」和太極招式,希望透過音樂,為高牆裡帶來佛光,給他們歡喜、信心與希望。佛光山中區總住持覺居法師和妙法寺監寺覺乘法師亦率惠中寺信徒前往鼓勵受刑人。

「因為有了佛法,監獄不再是地獄!」遠從台灣台中而來的覺居法師表示,感謝受刑人的用心,發自內心的真誠和熱情已感動了所有人,在一舉一動之間,將三好四給體現無疑;他勉勵受刑人,身在監獄,更要珍惜學佛的因緣,好好改造身心,讓自己的人生重新開始。

來自台灣台中的曾淑芬說,菲律賓人生性樂觀、容易滿足,對於未來沒有計畫,而當佛光山法師把三好和四給帶進監獄時,給了這群被社會隔離

的人很大的啓示和感動,「希望佛法能繼續翻轉他們的人生,積極努力創造新的未來!」
宿務藝術團成員和受刑人在舞蹈中感受著彼此的歡喜和善意,燦爛的笑容和活潑的動作,將歡喜傳遍每個角落,成了當天最美的風景。
