      Most historians believe the Buddha was born in the sixth century BCE. Buddhists in Sri Lanka will celebrate on May 21, China on May 14, and Japan on April 8. What date is the right one?

Most historians believe the Buddha was born in the sixth century BCE. Buddhists in Sri Lanka will celebrate that event on May 21 this year. In China, a different calculation puts the date on May 14. The Japanese celebrate on April 8. What date is the right one? Nobody knows, and nobody should care.
If we worry too much about the date, we haven’t understood the Buddha’s teaching. Zen Buddhists sum up that teaching with the phrase, “No birth and no death.” Allow me to explain.
The Buddha’s life began in Lumbini, a small, rural Nepalese village. Legend tells us he was the son of a king. A seer at the king’s court prophesied the baby would grow up to be a king as well — unless he chose the path of a holy man. Appalled by that possibility, the king did everything he could to keep his son in the fold. He trained the boy to be a skillful warrior, taught him the ins and outs of government, and found him a beautiful, intelligent wife.
Despite all these precautions, the prince one day left the palace and arrived in the nearby town. He was shocked to find many people there ravaged by disease. For the first time, he witnessed the results of old age — wizened men and women barely able to walk.Most disturbing of all were the bodies of the dead, piled up beside their funeral pyres.
Overwhelmed by so much suffering, the Buddha left his protected life and went to study meditation with the greatest masters of the time. Finally, after setting off on his own, he experienced his Great Awakening at the age of 25. For the next five decades, he wandered the land. He offered guidance to everyone who asked about the way to achieve enlightenment. Then, at the age of 80, the Buddha died.
To sum up: the Buddha was born in Nepal. He wandered throughout Northeast India, and he died very old by the standards of the day. But the Buddha said that’s only half the story. He also taught that people actually live two different lives at once: a life of minutes and hours, and a life outside of time.
Let’s say you are relaxing with your family or hiking in the woods. Maybe you’ve just finished a tennis game or breastfed your baby. At moments like these, time can suddenly stop. The “now” can feel absolutely timeless.
Normally, we might brush aside this experience. “Only our life in time is real,” we think. But the Buddha said this isn’t true. Our moments outside of time are real as well. Those are the moments when we connect with something bigger than ourselves — the life of the entire universe.
We might live for only 30 years or we might live for a century. But the Buddha said we haven’t really come alive until we discover for ourselves the timelessness in the midst of time. In that eternal “now,” there is no birth and no death.
So, happy no-birthday, Buddha.

大多数历史学家认为佛陀出生在公元前六世纪。在斯里兰卡佛教徒将庆祝5月21日,中国5月14日,日本4月8日。正确的日期是什么?



大多数历史学家认为佛陀出生在公元前六世纪。佛教徒在斯里兰卡今年将在5月21日庆祝这个事件。在中国,不同的计算日期5月14日。日本4月8日庆祝。正确的日期是什么?没有人知道,没有人应该关心。

如果我们过于担心目前为止,我们还没有理解佛陀的教导。禅宗佛教徒总结教学的短语,“没有出生和死亡。“请允许我解释一下。

佛陀的生活开始在兰毗尼,一个小,尼泊尔农村村庄。传说告诉我们他是一个国王的儿子。国王的法师的预言家预言婴儿也会成长为一个国王——除非他选择另一个道路,做个圣人。对这种可能性,国王做了一切他能让他的儿子幸福。这个训练有素的男孩是一个武艺高超熟练的战士,教他管理政府的策略,给他娶了一个美丽,聪明的妻子。

尽管有所有这些预防措施,王子有一天离开了宫殿,来到附近的城镇。他惊讶地发现许多人遭受疾病。第一次,他目睹了年老的结果——消瘦的男人和女人几乎不能走路。最令人不安的是死者的尸体,旁边堆柴堆火葬。

被这么多痛苦包围着,佛离开安逸的生活去学习冥想的大师。最后,自己出走后,他经历了25岁的大觉醒。未来五年,他在这片土地。他提出指导间的开悟真理。然后,80岁,佛陀去世了。

总结:佛陀出生于尼泊尔。他在印度东北部,游荡,他死的很老的标准。但佛陀说这只是故事的一半。他还教导人们两种不同的生活:每分钟和每小时的生活,和时间以外的生活。

假设你和你的家人放松或在树林里远足。也许你刚刚完成一个网球游戏或母乳喂养的宝宝。在这样的时刻,时间会突然停止。“现在”能感觉到绝对永恒的。

通常情况下,我们可能会不顾这种体验。“只有我们的生活是真实的,“我们认为。但佛陀说这不是真的。我们时刻以外的时间是真实的。这些联系的时候可以成就更大的事情,比如我们即整个宇宙的生命历程。

我们只可以活30年或我们可能活了一个世纪。但是佛陀说我们还没有真正为自己活着,直到我们发现时间的永恒之中。在那永恒的“现在”,没有出生和死亡。

所以,佛,没有生,时时刻刻都是佛诞日。
