常州有一位師兄在加拿大往生,他的牌位及照片放在常州法堂的佛桌上。上週他的夫人從加拿大回來,帶著師兄的媽媽及兒子來感謝師父。
當他們見到親人的牌位及照片,忍不住淚留不止。但很快的,夫人便止住了哭,她說:成哲師兄不願意看到我們這樣,他要我們快樂。
瞬間明白了什麼是愛與慈悲。無私的為他著想,無求的付出。
智晁師兄總是體貼周圍的人,總是把歡樂帶給周圍的人,總是為他人著想,總是不以不善語對人。智晁師兄一直是個菩薩行者的典範。他示範如何是人間的菩薩,如何是佛法不離世間,菩薩如何行菩薩行。
在他身旁,永遠笑聲不斷,永遠如沐春風。
物質有生滅,而高尚的德行會流轉至下一世,這是最重要的瑰寶。以智晁師兄為榜樣,世世常修普賢行,世世常行普賢廣大願

Thank you for the reminder. I remember Henry with great affection and admiration. His life came to an end much too early, but I am confident that, with his merits, intelligence, and devotion to the Dharma, he has had a fortunate rebirth and will continue his journey to enlightenment under favorable conditions. I hope we will come together often in the future--if not in this life, then in future lives.

在此悲切之刻,我深切懷念已故的虔誠佛友鴻洋居士。對他的印象充滿了熱情、慈悲,以及對《華嚴經》的虔誠。

鴻洋居士的生活一直都是優美的典範,無私地以身教奉獻於社會和佛法。儘管我們一同共事的時間不算長,但他的智慧言論深刻而富有啟發性,為我帶來不少知識。

生命的逝去對於有生者總是充滿不捨,我們渴望著更多相聚的機會。這實際上是苦的真諦,愛別離的無常時常映照在我們心頭。

在這一天,我們緬懷鴻洋居士,也懷著要修行的諾言,或許對他而言,這是一個欣慰的時刻吧!

誠如法讖(博蕙)師兄所言,在智晁(鴻洋)師兄的身上,可以感受到人生的真善美。
佛法必然符合真善美。智晁師兄從小受佛法薰陶,佛的義理已經深植在他的心性之中,所以我們從他的言行,看到了真、善、美。智晁師兄,就是一個如實的菩薩行者的典範。
智晁師兄有個特質讓妙化記憶深刻,不論師兄怎麼累,只要談到佛法;談到對眾生的願心,他馬上就神采奕奕,倦容全消。這應該也是師兄生生世世行願養成的菩薩習性吧!
從一個菩薩行者而言,生死即涅槃,本不生滅,生滅只是外相。願心是相續不斷的,直至渡盡一切有緣眾生,圓滿所發之願。
既是在同一個如來家族,未來世必然一起繼續行願,也沒有感覺智晁師兄離開,只是各法住法位,朝成就無上菩提之路邁進。

Early this year coincidentally near his birthday that I had a dream with Brother Henry in it. This dream offers very short glimpse of his usual genuine smile with this short and sweet message. However, I couldn’t describe how enduring and strong it left me, almost a steadfast reminder for me when I become too absorbed on triviality of what passing on a daily basis: “life is a dream”. This understanding runs deep, and only through profound realization can one truly grasp its significance.

Thanks, Brother Henry, I will use it as my Koan.

当鸿洋兄还在读博士的时候,他来纽约参访佛寺,因而认识了他,给我的印象是非常温文尔雅,客气有礼,待人谦和;对佛法的认知和学习又相当的认真而深入,真是把佛法用在生活当中,由于他的佛法认知很深,英文造诣又好,每次他来纽约大觉寺或莊严寺参访,师父们在对西方人开示佛法时,都会请他做英文翻译!一直盼望他对佛法在西方的弘扬能有所贡献,然而英年早逝,不胜唏嘘!今天听说您已经成长为一位五、六歲活潑可愛的男孩,太高兴了!希望您有空时要求今生的妈妈带您来纽约看我们,有意无意泄露一下您的身份,给我们大家一个惊喜!也请给我一个含蓄的招呼,让我来招呼您这位多年不见的顺缘増上的好好小朋友!哈哈!!!

Just seven years ago today, I was with Henry and Pohui on a trip to Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and Bryce Canyon. Henry was in a bright mood and we had no inkling of what lay just ahead. Six years ago today--exactly one year later--Henry breathed his last at the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. His life ended far too early, but all who knew him bear him in mind with respect, affection, and many fond memories.

A Sad Song Softly Hummed with a Pause——Written on the Sixth Death Anniversary of Henry                                                                                             

In the last few years of Henry’s life, he often traveled between Taiwan and the United States. The times we were together were fewer than the times we were apart. When he was in Taiwan, he either lived in an apartment rented for him by his company or went back to his childhood home to live with his mother. When he returned to the United States, he came back to the “small nest” that we built together. Soon after he passed away, I often had the illusion that he had gone to Taiwan on a business trip; and my mother-in-law too said that she had the impression that he had returned to the United States. Today, when a “business trip” of more than 2,000 days has passed, my sadness at missing him has gone from being forever present to being no longer an overwhelming calamity, and today it seems like a sad song softly hummed and yet with a pause.

Time is the Magician of Healing. No matter how deep a trauma one may experience in life, it will gradually heal. In my own journey of life, which has never stopped for even a moment but has kept rolling forward, the traumatic experience of losing Henry has gradually retreated into a corner of my heart. Some acquaintances who claim to have psychic powers have said that in his new life, Henry is now a cute lively boy five or six years of age. If this is truly the case, no matter where he is now, with a wholehearted blessing, I wish him peace, health, and a smooth life, possessing all the extraordinary personality traits and merits and good conditions of his previous life. May he continue to move forward, steadily and firmly, in pursuing his vow to attain Buddhahood.

Henry’s mind was full of spiritual abundance, radiating genuine light and warmth at all times, everywhere, even towards the very end of his life. His composure in facing illness and death again and again inspired me to reflect upon old age, illness, and death. People often say that when a person is seriously ill, he must rely on others to take care of him and thus lose his sense of dignity, which is unbearable. When Henry’s condition took a turn from bad to worse, he could not control himself physically in many respects, but dignity was just an irrelevant issue to him. Once, when an old nurse was wiping him and changing his diaper, his face broke out in a smile that was as bright as the sun. He stretched out his right hand, patted the nurse on the shoulder, and sincerely praised her, saying: "Good Mama!" Upon hearing this, the old nurse immediately shed tears on the spot. In the course of his illness, Henry never fell into a bad mood. During the last few days of his life, when his medical reports became successively worse, the doctor on duty said to him: "I'm so sorry. You are such a good person. Why am I always the one who must inform you of the terrible reports? It aches my heart." At the last moments of his life, Henry was still able to give me five thumbs-up to praise me when I was chanting the Mantra of Great Compassion for him before he passed away. The picture has been etched in my heart.

Henry once said to me: "Whatever I do, I truly never think about myself." Perhaps this explains why he was so different from ordinary people in every respect. I am deeply grateful for his companionship, which has influenced every aspect of my life. I believe that in each of his future lives, those who have a deep affinity with him will, like me, see in him the truthfulness, genuine goodness, and pure beauty of human nature.

短歌微吟不能長----寫於鴻洋往生六週年   

鴻洋最後幾年的人生,經常往返台美兩地,我們總是聚少離多。他在台時,或住公司替他租賃的寓所,或回老家與婆婆共住,返美時則回到我們共築的小窩。他剛走時,我有時有種錯覺,彷彿他出差去台了;而婆婆則說,他回美了。如今,兩千多個出差遠行的日子過去了,思念他的悲傷,從無計相迴避,到不復氾濫成災,來到了今日的短歌微吟。

時間是療癒的魔法師,生命中再深的創痛,也終將逐漸平復。在這不曾片刻稍停、不斷往前滾動的人生旅程中,一段刻骨銘心的經歷,逐漸退據我心頭深處一隅。鴻洋不一不異的下一生,據各界消息「靈」通人士,如今也已長成了五、六歲活潑可愛的男孩。果真如此,我懷著滿心的祝福,不論他在何方,祝願他平安健康,一生順遂,具足前生種種殊勝的人格特質與福德因緣,繼續在他誓願成就的佛道上,平穩堅定地前行。

鴻洋心靈透明而富足,故能隨時隨地不假造作的散發出光與熱,即便到了生命的盡頭。他面對疾病與死亡的坦然,再再啟發我對老病死的省思。常聽人言,人到重病之時,凡事需仰賴他人照料,過著沒有尊嚴的生活,情何以堪?鴻洋病情急轉直下,多事不能自主時,全然沒有有無尊嚴的糾結。一次,一位老護士正在替他擦拭並更換尿布時,他臉上綻放出一向如陽光燦爛般的笑容,同時伸出右手,拍了拍護士的肩膀,衷心地讚歎,說道:「Good Mama! 」老護士聞言,當場掉下了眼淚。鴻洋病中不曾有過壞情緒,到了最末,病情報告一次比一次差,輪值的醫生對他說:「我很難過,你是這麼好的人,為什麼每次都是我必須告訴你這麼糟糕的消息,令我非常痛心。」而他在生命最終的時刻,還能五次伸出大拇指來,對我為他誦大悲咒頻頻表讚,然後往生的情景,永遠烙印在我心的頭,不可磨滅 。

鴻洋曾對我說:「我做事,真的不曾為自己考慮過。」這也許是他在各方面展現出不同於凡俗的原因吧。我深深感念他曾有的相伴,影響我一生的方方面面,相信在他的每生每世中,有緣與他深刻接觸的人,都將如我一般,看見人性的至真、純善與淨美。

以智化情的人生----寫於鴻洋往生五週年    

    九月是個肅殺的月份,清晨的七寶湖畔,空中已然瀰漫著初秋侵人筋骨的寒意;湖面上片片的落葉,道出自然界四時循環、無可逭逃、有生無不死的訊息。的確,在這個肅殺的季節裏,我先後失去了鴻洋,失去了母親,而就在今年的九月,一位大學時期深受全班喜愛的同學,也告別了人生。傷悼之餘,驚覺自己也已邁入人生的秋季。

     鴻洋剛走時,好友的關懷從四面八方湧入,鉅細靡遺,擔心向來不知妝扮的我,喪禮上失儀,堅持帶我去名百貨公司,量身打造,治得一套得體的衣裝。五年來,這衣裝我又已穿了數回,裝依舊,用不同,我從主角變成了配角。看著一個個經歷死別之人,悲働欲絕。以己度他情,深刻體會他們的傷痛,終至與她們成為至交,不知不覺間竟成了朋友圈中的「單飛諮詢家」。

    然而死別的痛是深刻且久遠的,原以為已隨時間流逝而淡去的傷痛,因緣合會時,仍會猛然地盡虛空、遍法界的呈現。五年來,不時現起的仍是與鴻洋此生相知相識的時光,懷念他異於常人無限寬廣的心胸,打破框架的高瞻遠矚,以及堅定不移眾生無邊誓願度的宏願,更懷念他陽光燦爛般的笑容。從小至大,從健康至病重,歡笑是他生命的主旋律,順逆境皆然,一貫譜出一個個歡樂跳躍的音符。  

    鴻洋走後,我的生命驟失那份從他而來的豁達與無懼,無可迴避地面對了人生是苦的真相,恍然大悟世間多苦,原來路上一張張陌生的面孔背後,藏著多少不為人知的悲歡離合之苦。然而苦痛令人成長,知苦令人成熟,歷經創傷後,願我化為一隻火浴的鳳凰。

     鴻洋永據我心頭一隅,不思量,自難忘。他生即便有緣再相見,覩面亦已不識。只願生生世世,彼此更有長進,各自努力踐行我倆因緣會遇時,曾有的理想與夢想;更願以佛陀無常、苦、空、無我的正法之智,化導人生之至情,生生世世與菩提道上的同行同願者,共畫一個更大、更壯麗的同心圓。

「是命運使我們相識,是愛心讓我們結合。
願這份同窗之誼伴我們度過每一季的蟬鳴,
更讓我們藉著它畫一個更大、更壯麗的同心圓。」                                             
                                               ----鴻洋初中畢業紀念冊語

鴻洋師兄

在您逝世四週年前後有想到您,原本想在那時候給博惠LINE留言,後來因自己在“半閉關”中而作罷。剛剛看了博蕙四週年紀念您的的文章,小水珠在眼眶裡埋伏者,便想到來這裡和您、和朋友們閒聊。

我現在在莊嚴寺掛單,親近常住、親近菩提長老。有這個因緣其實博蕙是一個很大的助緣,而且來了以後博蕙還當我的巴利文老師,給了我很大的助益,也在生活、修行上給我許多的啟示和鼓勵。說來有點慚愧,我前陣子有想,我學佛比博蕙早,但是博蕙的佛學基礎現在比我紮實。沒有關係,達者為師,讓我們都學習長老滴水穿石(博蕙好幾次分享長老的這種學習精神),互相鼓勵、學習、扶持,在佛道上踏實的前進。我想如您知道博蕙在佛法、佛學上的成就,應該會很欣慰把!

真可惜沒有因緣認識您,而只能透過博蕙觀望您。我想如果我們有因緣認識,應該會一拍即合,“臭味和佛味” 一併相投,因為我們的性格、喜好有些相似,還有對佛道的堅持。比如我也常常會掉東西,雖然現在有所改進。。。昨天長老、博蕙和我去健行,走了四公里多的路。全程基本上由博蕙帶路,也當布施給尖嘴大師們的先鋒。她還很細心的幫大家準備食物,並請好後備車,以防我們沒體力或來不及趕回來打坐。

不知道您現在在那裡,讓我們各自在佛道上踏實的努力。願我們有一天會在菩提道上相見。我想應該會的。謝謝您來了這世間一趟,有您真好。

永懷鴻洋於心中,共行大愛於人間----寫於鴻洋往生四週年
 
從不曾想過,有一天我會比鴻洋年長,但就在今年,我活過了鴻洋的年紀,從今以後,鴻洋永遠地比我年輕了。

在我寫下往生二週年紀念文後,一位好友問我,天下真有這樣的人嗎? 我回答:我是如實描述啊!他如大洋涵容納百川的心量,溫柔敦厚的個性,不假思索的無私,正向陽光的個性,凡事皆可成辦的樂觀,認識他的人都能感受到,而他對我的好脾氣,也確確實實實是如此。

也許我和鴻洋有著多生累劫甚深的善緣吧!在我們相處三十多年的歲月裏,鴻洋不曾對我發過脾氣。我無論做什麼,他永遠讚賞,他對我母親說:「我以博蕙為榮。」他總是以欣賞的眼光,看著我所做的一切。鴻洋走後,有多少的事,我得獨自一人處理,每做成一件事,我彷彿聽見他說:「博蕙真能幹!」;搞砸了一件事,彷彿仍舊聽見他說:「博蕙真能幹!」。我們共處的日子中,他替我阻擋了外界多少的風和雨,而我,替他守住一方了無後顧之憂的小小家庭。

小孩出生後,我們各忙各的,我無暇進入他好奇探索多采多姿的天地,他甚少進入我和小孩的世界,幸有佛法維繫著我們。多少個夜晚,我們暢談佛法,談著談著,不知不覺中,和他的緣分就走到了盡頭,他戛然而止地從我生命中消失,轉眼之間我單飛的日子已滿四年。

而這四年間,我真得變得能幹起來了。他一向走在科技的最前端,而我翻譯的是二千五百年前的佛語,我曾說我們同處於一個空間,但時間上相距數千年。他走後,我快速地穿越時空,來到了現代。原本是摩登原始人的我,接收了他的手機,得上網學習如何操作。面對他留下的一個又一個的現代科技物件,網上搜尋,按圖索驥,恍然大悟桌上擺的是螢幕,地上那只方方的黑箱子才是電腦。我古哥後順利接出兩個外接螢幕,省下修改譯作翻頁的時間,彷彿又聽見了鴻洋讚許的聲音。還有三個怪東西, 網上搜尋,原來是 Fitbit Flex和Fitbit Charge HR ,充電器得插在手環的中央;黑色圓柱狀的是亞馬遜第一代Echo;藍牙原來非關牙齒,只和耳朵有關……。

翻著翻著,看到一個未拆封的電子緊身衣,憶起一日鴻洋下班回來,拿出兩個盒子,表示接下來要做可穿戴式測量,一件自己穿,一件給我穿,紀錄會自動送到電腦和手機並作分析。我看那緊身的程度幾乎讓人無法呼吸,當場拒絕。他不以為意,拆了其一,自己就穿戴起來了,之後經常日夜穿戴,渾然忘我。一日公務出國,機場通關過安檢,瞬間警鈴大作,警報大響,荷槍實彈的警察從四面八方衝出。事後警察對他說:「你真把我們嚇壞了,我們剛才以為你是自殺炸彈恐怖分子。」

由於鴻洋經常進入渾然忘我的境界,同學會後錯穿他人一隻鞋,訪友留宿時錯刷主人的牙刷等事件,層出不窮,不過日久大家也就習以為常,見怪不怪。一生之中遺失之物不可勝數,舉其大要:手機五(包括他以為可以用來佔位子的一支),平板電腦一,筆電一,護照一,駕照一,眼鏡不知凡幾。有一回,我說:「幸好你的頭連著脖子」。他說:「其實沒有,是裝上去的,不信我拿下給你看。」說著,把頭和脖子左右扭了數回,居然接連發出很大的嘎嘎聲響。

鴻洋身後遺留於人間的,不僅是他丟失的物品而已,還有他種種的人格特質,他好奇研究的豐碩工作成果;還有Ben,已於今年六月自MIT博士畢業;還有我,第二本巴中譯作也於今年出版,完成鴻洋與我為佛教界貢獻心願的一小步;還有懷念他的友人及同事,最初由鴻洋的哥哥和弟弟發起的紀念獎學金,多年來因大家不離不棄的支持,在世界最苦難的角落之一,持續閃爍著小小的光芒,延續著鴻洋不假思索的無私,改變了十數位女孩的生命,正是永懷鴻洋於心中,共行大愛於人間。

於此鴻洋往生四週年之日,祈願種種善美之緣,盡未來際綿延久遠。

2021-9-17: 鴻德

鴻洋走四年了。2017年漸漸覺得久遠,是疫情前的太平盛世。四年來,博蕙勇敢的面對,處理了搬家賣屋,也送親家母人生最後一程,班傑明順利取得博士學位,開始了DC 的事業。

人生時時以慈悲為懷,禪定生智,鴻洋表現在眉目之間,就是這種出世在人間的氣質。鴻洋走後,我感到鴻洋慈善的佛心也有逐漸進了我的心裏。餘生將致力傳承如學法師,鴻洋的大願。行菩薩道,修菩提法。

祝禱鴻洋已乘願再來,渡有緣人,在宇宙空間,期待下一次交會的因緣!

Today I remember fondly a good man, a good friend, an outstanding Buddhist lay follower, who passed away too early, with many more years of productive life ahead of him. He always bore a bright smile, during the prime of life and when approaching death, giving joy and happiness to all who knew him. I am confident he has had a fortunate rebirth and will continue on his long journey toward Buddhahood, the goal toward which he aspired.

鴻洋師兄:

很遺憾此生無緣認識您。只能透過您太太,博蕙觀望您。有一次想到您的名字,心裡浮現“大鴻之洋”。我想那再加上如慧日般的智慧、熱誠,應該蠻能夠形容您的性格。

今天想不起您那一年走的,便來這網頁找。看到博蕙寫的三週年紀念文章,先看到的是您張張照片裡燦爛的笑容。看著照片、讀著博蕙的文章,一些小水珠從遙遠的時空來到我眼眶,後來Line博蕙時也如此。剛剛送我太太去上班時對她說您很了不起,可以走得這麼瀟灑。願我最後兩站也可以如此淡然、瀟灑、慈悲。
     
以前看了一些這網頁裡的一些文章,照片。今天把大部分的文章、照片都看了。在此分享兩首您以前寫的詩 。

    (一)

麥城風雪逞淫威,
掃蕩群魔氣未央;
一代英雄成千古,
欲將極樂作故鄉。

這一首很有有豪氣!

    (二)

端正身心,
行八正道。
為眾生故,
一切可捨。

共勉之。謝謝您在此走了一回。希望我們有緣在菩提道上見!


志良遙念

Dear Brother Henry

It is too bad that I didn't get to know you. I can only glance at you from afar through your wife, Pohui. Once I was thinking of your Chinese name, and "Great Ocean of the Wild Swan" came to me. I think that, coupled with the sunlike wisdom and enthusiasm, should describe your characters rather well.

Today I can't recall the year you passed on, hence I came to this webpage to check. I saw the third anniversary article written by Pohui. The very first thing I saw was the bright smile in all of your photos. Looking at the photos, while reading Pohui's article, a few drops of tears were lingering in my eyes, and the same thing happened when I Line Pohui. When I drove my wife to work, I told her that you were great in that you could passed on so lightheartedly. May my last two stops in life be as tranquil, lighthearted , and compassionate as yours.

I read some of the articles and saw some of the photos from this page a while back.I read and saw most of them today. Here I share two of the poems that you wrote before (translations omitted) ...

Thank you for walking on this rock. I hope we get to meet along our Bodhi paths!

Chee Liang, thinking of you from afar.

On this day I remember a dear and delightful friend who passed away much too soon, when he still had many more years of active life ahead of him. Just a year earlier, before his passing, we made a trip together to Sedona and the Grand Canyon, along with his wife Pohui. On the night of Sept. 16th we joined a hilltop full-moon festival in Sedona, laughing together and enjoying the festivities. We could never know that just one year later, on exactly that day, his life would come to an end. I am sure that his compassionate spirit and devotion to the Dharma will bring him back to continue his journey. All blessings to him wherever he may presently be dwelling.

永遠的師兄
第一次見到智晁師兄就對他印象深刻。
他說他有一千個老婆
什麼?一個人可以娶一千個老婆?
他說,他的老婆有一千種風貌,所以他有一個老婆,就等於有一千個老婆。
他總是如此的幽默風趣,讓人在他身邊如沐春風。
智晁師兄終其一生,都沉浸在佛法的熏染與修持之中。三年了,乘願再來的智晁師兄應該二歲多了,對一個菩薩行者而言,生死即涅槃。生死只是現象。就像橫雲斷嶺,浮橋截河,看似斷其實依然相續,成佛道上,願一路相隨,相互護持,荷擔如來家業。

Mamá partió hace casi 2 semanas, como todos iremos por ese camino algún momento y es donde vamos a rendir el examen final, tanto vos y mamá sacaron muy buenos puntajes, ya que tenemos sus ejemplos, vamos a tener que forzar más para mejorar! Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha

三週年了,心念鴻洋依舊。謹以照片數張分享,記錄鴻洋無與倫比樂觀無憂的個性。每張都是他病中時照,了無憂懼,燦爛如陽光般的笑容,消溶人生的風雪冰霜。
It’s been three years, and I miss Henry all the same. I would like to share some photos that record Henry’s unparalleled optimistic and carefree personality. Each photo was taken during his illness but all show a fear-free, bright smile like the sun, dissolving the blizzards of life.

第一張:攝於病房,前夜急診x光確知胸部有十幾公分的陰影,我一夜無眠,鴻洋卻睡好吃飽,第二天依舊談笑風生。
Picture 1: Taken in the ward. The X-ray at the emergency the night before confirmed that there was a shadow of more than ten centimeters in Henry’s chest. I didn't sleep all night, but Henry slept well and ate well. The next day, he was still talking heartily as usual.

第二張: 二天後做更進一步的檢查。
Picture 2: Further examinations were done two days later.

第三張: 確診肺癌第四期後,我們到家附近的小公園散步,都市長大的鴻洋,不知怎麼盪鞦韆,我教他怎樣輕鬆盪得高,他快樂地一次又一次地嘗試。
Picture 3: After Henry was diagnosed with the fourth stage of lung cancer, we went for a walk in the small park near our home. Henry, who grew up in the city, didn’t really know how to use the swings. I taught him how to swing high effortlessly. He tried happily again and again.

第四張:在小公園走走,他並非沒有身痛,但他情緒卻未受影響。
Picture 4: Walking in the small park, he was not without physical pain, but his emotions were not affected.

第五張:鴻洋突發奇想,說要實驗看看陽光是否能「把腫瘤曬小」,脫掉上衣,盛夏烈日下胸部背部反覆「熱煎」了幾回。
Picture 5: Henry had a whim, and said that he wanted to experiment to see if the sun could "shrink the tumor"; he took off his shirt, and repeatedly "fried" his chest and back under the hot summer sun.

第六張:第一次施打免疫療法。
Picture 6: The first immunotherapy was administered.

第七張: 在小公園散步,碰巧小公園內大自然中心的人員拿出陸龜展示,鴻洋感到驚奇萬分。
Picture 7: We were taking a walk in the small park. It happened that the staff from the Nature Center in the small park took out the tortoise to display. Henry marveled at the tortoise.

第八張:給我一個意外驚喜的生日聚餐。
Picture 8: A surprise birthday gathering for me.

第九張: 血栓造成小中風急診住院,一樣笑容滿面。
Picture 9: In spite of a small stroke caused by blood clots, and hospitalized in emergency department, Henry was still with a bright smile on his face.

第十張: 住院腳水腫得連走路都困難,我心痛地看著他,他說:別用那種眼光看我,我一點都沒有覺得不舒服。
Picture 10: Henry’s feet were swollen when hospitalized and it was difficult for him to walk. I looked at him with heartache but he said, “Don't look at me that way, I don't feel any discomfort at all.”

第十一張
最後的日子,依然笑容滿面 
Picture 11: In his last days, Henry was still smiling.

鴻洋印象    明光法師

印象中的張鴻洋居士,是一位書生典型、溫文儒雅、和藹可親的君子。
在紐約莊嚴寺每年的夏令營、佛七、禪七法會、各宗教聯合祈禱世界和平大會上,都會有看到他的身影。他也是中英文翻譯的能手,特別是為仁俊長老開示的英譯,更是讓大家受益良多。他在參與美國佛教會董事會會譯中,其建議或討論內容簡潔扼要,都是給人印相深刻的。
   在工作上,他在IBM公司,長期服務,負責、認真、真誠,對公司的貢獻與成就,都是令人讚佩的!在家庭生活,他與太太莊博蕙居士和兒子Ben的相處,是一幅佛化家庭幸福美滿的景象。
   即便在受病痛考驗中,他仍然保持一顆平常心,坦然面對,對佛國淨土的追求嚮往,永遠保持堅定的信心。
在張鴻洋居士往生三週年,末學僅書數語,以表懷念追思,並與大家共勉強!

鴻洋,你的身影,依然熟悉,仍舊安和,不知爲什麽,三年來,浮現不斷,或許是你特殊的謙和,深入思考談話的經驗使然,我們經常爲美佛會的事深談,交換看法。有時,一點頭,我們就以行動邁步向前,就像最後的大乘佛教計劃;有時,搖頭,悵然一聲,點滴在心頭。
記得美佛會的職務,副會長也好,書記也好,職務互換,在我們心裏,壓不住心頭的一頂帽子,重在美佛會的組織,重在佛法的弘揚。
法會的主持與翻譯,我們挺身承擔,我們都自嘲‘我們就是膽子大,敢上場’。許多名義,不是重點,而是邁向它的目的,才是意義所在。
這幾年,你不在了,總有些失朋缺伴的感覺;我們會面對時光的變異,環境的變遷,期盼未來,我們再携手共赴宏願。

常州有一位師兄在加拿大往生,他的牌位及照片放在常州法堂的佛桌上。上週他的夫人從加拿大回來,帶著師兄的媽媽及兒子來感謝師父。
當他們見到親人的牌位及照片,忍不住淚留不止。但很快的,夫人便止住了哭,她說:成哲師兄不願意看到我們這樣,他要我們快樂。
瞬間明白了什麼是愛與慈悲。無私的為他著想,無求的付出。
智晁師兄總是體貼周圍的人,總是把歡樂帶給周圍的人,總是為他人著想,總是不以不善語對人。智晁師兄一直是個菩薩行者的典範。他示範如何是人間的菩薩,如何是佛法不離世間,菩薩如何行菩薩行。
在他身旁,永遠笑聲不斷,永遠如沐春風。
物質有生滅,而高尚的德行會流轉至下一世,這是最重要的瑰寶。以智晁師兄為榜樣,世世常修普賢行,世世常行普賢廣大願

Thank you for the reminder. I remember Henry with great affection and admiration. His life came to an end much too early, but I am confident that, with his merits, intelligence, and devotion to the Dharma, he has had a fortunate rebirth and will continue his journey to enlightenment under favorable conditions. I hope we will come together often in the future--if not in this life, then in future lives.

懷念善知識

September 18, 2023
回顧一甲子的人生,有幸碰到少數幾位具有影響力的朋友,張鴻洋師兄是其中之一。1980年代的U of Wisconsin,師兄成立Buddhism study group,以淵博的佛法常識,帶著社員同學認識佛法,以不分宗派的開放態度,為大家釋疑解惑,養成我對佛教堅信的基礎。他是善知識,也是一位久修的菩薩,世間的學業、事業都難不倒他,加上又有賢內助博蕙師姊做為家庭後盾,使他能得空供養於佛,並且宏揚佛法,他的一生活得精彩。

祝願好朋友與善知識乘願再來娑婆,皈依三寶,修學佛法,早證菩提!

鸿洋师兄是真正的菩萨行者!每次看到与师兄有关的故事和留言,都会从心底发出这样的感叹。晚辈没有机缘和福分认识师兄,经由师姐的文字和分享,晚辈也仿佛见到了师兄本人。鸿洋师兄对待人生的积极洒脱,佛学道路上的精进和奉献,菩萨道上恳切的菩提心,有好几次在晚辈陷入困惑迷茫的时候,像一束光出现在脑海。有光,就可以慢慢走出黑暗。鸿洋师兄进入了通关挑战的下一关,但他留在这个娑婆世界的光还继续亮着,引导、勉励着人生和佛学道路上的后学们。师姐也总是鼓励晚辈,无私的指引、帮助,处世和学佛中展现的善与慧,点点滴滴都让晚辈默默记在心里,并时时引以为榜样。现在鸿洋师兄继续在他的菩提道修行中增益增上,利益更多人,照亮世间。感恩,祝福,诚愿三宝护佑加持。小岩合十。

鴻洋師兄
願好。前陣子想到您的週年紀念就要到了。今天看了博蕙寫的文字,有些水珠在眼眶裡打轉。不過,據說你的新生命過的很好,我也很安慰。願您在菩提道上繼續前進,也願大眾和我不忘菩提心。有緣見。
