Hog and sheep characteristics--that are vulnerable to evil sect

Author :Chang Kai-Chi

Since ancient times, there have been many cults. Most of the people who were easily confused were the villagers who have lower levels of educations. Because China’s various ideologies had achieved very early, therefore hundreds of philosophies contended scholar-officials class only memorized the ancestors and not the random deities. In particular, the Emperor Wu (Western Han Dynasty) ruled citizens to follow Confucianism. The intellectuals were incompatible with the ghosts and gods.

However, in recent years, many new religions have used the names under Buddhism, Taoism, New Age, and Tibetan Secrets to confuse the public with all kinds of weird evil miracles.  Their main targets are to recruit believers, accumulate wealth and even seduce men/women. Such criminal scam is horrendous.

Why many of these bewildered believers are also get trapped by these evil sects?

As for the celebrities in the entertainment industry, they will be tempted by the ecological environment. Because the famous and the non-famous would exist major differences, and there is no rule to predictions.  So some entertainers (such as ancient Peking Opera group)  were most likely to be superstitious about believing.

But why they are there so many highly educated intellectuals with considerable socioeconomic status  are so easily tempted to fall into it?

Seems this has little to do with educational , academic level or social status, nor rich or poor, old age, etc. It is related to family customs and religious traditions, personal traits, ignorance about religions and no spiritual concepts in general.  Their mental characteristics are prone the short-cut stuff.

There is folk story as follows,

In the wilderness of northern China, there have always been hunting wolves. Basically, since human own various firearms, wolves are usually not as close to the village as possible. However, in Winter seasons, wolves were not easy to prey. Hungry makes it inevitably ventures into the village to attack poultries and livestocks.

Therefore, there is a folks saying in the north that "wolf invites pigs". Why it does not say "hunt” but instead with “invite"? This is a real mastery of learning to know.

Pig is a kind of livestock that is very easy to nourish. The relationship with human beings is very long. Because pigs don’t run fast, they don’t jump high, their temperament is relatively gentle and omnivorously eats almost everything.  Humans like to raise pigs and the enclosure does not need to  be particularly tall and sturdy.  So why do pigs run away with the cozy place to eat, sleep and no food labor-finding ?

The wolf has spotted these characteristics. So when it is necessary to go to catch pigs, the sly and experienced old wolf would wait after people fall asleep then sneak into the pigsty with one or two wolves waiting outside for preparations. The sneaked wolf will try to accurately bite the tail of the pig with minor pain(all because once the injury is too severe, the pig will scream and inevitably alarm the owner).

Since it is minor pain, the pig instinct will want to escape then  jump out of the pigsty then the waiting wolf will bite the big ears so precisely control these run-away pigs.  Pigs  will not struggle and be obedient to  follow then enter into wolf's den.  Up to this moment, the wolves will no longer be polite. Of course, they will swarm and kill the pigs and eat them.

Let's talk about "cute sheep": which usually means gentle and weak. It can be seen that sheep is a kind of livestock that is very obedient. In Europe, America, New Zealand and Australia, there are large-scale livestock breeding farms. The special "Shepherd Dogs" help manage the flock. Shepherd dogs are more efficient and cost-effective than human management. Usually thousands of sheep, only three or four sheepdogs can help graze because dog runs faster than a person, can quickly cluster the sheep or rush to the right path. Plus the sheep is afraid of the shepherd bites, but also afraid that it’s barking. So naturally sheeps are very obedient.

Why do humans have such a very obedient characteristics similar to "pig and sheep" traits?

Similar to sheep; it is weak in character and has no opinion. It is easily guided by friends or induced by some people.  Or even knowing that it is not right but has no self-confidence.   Or it can only got controlled then accept. And the most important thing is "too gregarious" In the group; never dare to express their opinions, fear to be regarded as a heterogeneous, afraid to be alienated by peers, only stays in the group then find a sense of security and identity.

Similar to pigs although the personality may not be weak and assertive.  But there may be traditional religious beliefs in the family, or the complete ignorance of religion itself, despite the success of the business.  Intimidation from karma of folklore or religion, the reincarnation by punishment, the Christianity about the unbelievers who go to hell, etc.  Since they feel scared; or die the bad deed during fortune gathering then afraid of retribution—this  mentality is the same as "pig is afraid of bitting pain”.

The Buddhism "Qing Tu Zong" ( pursuing the pure Land Paradise  ) in China which had promoted a convenient way for the ignorant public. Anyway, you don't need to think about the Buddhist scriptures or understand at all and you don't have to meditate on the gimmicks—as long as you chant the four words before you die. Amitabha, then you can live in the Western Paradise world.  How cheap is this?

Therefore, many emerging religions, especially cults, are precisely the psychology fit for modern person's "fast mental food". In particular, they have formulated the simplest and most convenient way of faith: as long as people pay for their merits, believe to be saved, support the Master, you can resolve all "causal karma."

Declaring that as long as appreciate Master, praise Master, believe in Master, and support Master—Master will be able to detonate  and write off your karma, which is a similar lie as "Jesus can forgive the sins of the world".  Think about this: can Jesus really forgive your sins? If you steal something in the supermarket, sneakly touch girl on the MRT, slash people on the street, get caught by the police and prepare to face law regulations—you tell Judge that "Jesus can forgive all my crimes". So the police will release You? Will the judge sentence you to acquittal?

According to Buddhism, even Sakyamuni, who is called the boundless mana, can't release the sinfulness of his disciples. How did a master forgive your sin? Can you get relief if you spend money to support? Isn't that the same as the medieval sect of the Roman Catholic Church selling "smuggling vouchers"?

We live in a relative world and there are time factors. Therefore, the "causal law" exists. Everything has antecedents, but the cause and effect are not absolute. Think about it. The fruit farmers in Lishan mountain have painstakingly planted apples or pears. The fruit growers in Lashan planted peaches and in theory they planted their trees. When they reached ripping, there would be harvests. This is an "existing cause." However, suppose that on the eve of the harvest period, a strong typhoon suddenly come. As a result, all the fruits were swept away and there was no harvest at all. What is the "fruit(effect)"? Who can compensate for all their losses? Will there be a god Buddha to compensate them in the afterlife and let them get fairly rewarded ?

Why are so many young intellectuals in Taiwan who are mistaken for evil sects? That is because Taiwan’s political situation has been idle for more than a decade, the economic recession, college graduates salary are 22K per month and young people are “universally hopeless” about the future; the problems of spiritual emptiness and helplessness caused by the emptiness of the mind.  Like trying to catch a straw rope in the ocean for life-saving, that is how they behave blind obedience In the group.

There is no "good and evil difference related karma punishments" in nature. Therefore, spending money is not able to buy any merits, nor can it pardon any crimes. The mentality of "fast food or copying shortcuts", ignorance and misunderstanding of religion and plus randomly believe in "Master"—it is a foolish and deceiving way.

易受邪教蠱惑者的「豬羊特性」

作者:張開基

翻譯員:北展昭

自古以來,出現過許許多多的邪教,原本容易受到蠱惑的大多數是知識水平較低的村夫愚婦,因為中國的各種思想體系成就的年代極早,在戰國以前,就已經是諸子輩出,百家爭鳴了,因此,所謂的士大夫階級個個知書達禮,敬天法祖,是不語怪力亂神的,尤其西漢自武帝罷黜百家,獨尊儒術,知識份子是和鬼神信仰沾不上邊的。

但是,近年來,許許多多的新興宗教,打著佛、道、新時代、藏密的名號,用各種怪異的邪說神蹟來迷惑社會大眾,廣召信眾,大肆歛財,甚至以「雙修」幌子騙財騙色,詐騙犯罪行徑令人髮指。

而更奇怪的是,這些受到蠱惑的信眾中,有許許多多的是高學歷的知識份子?或者有相當社經地位的名人?

至於演藝圈中的名人會受到蠱惑,那是生態環境使然,因為紅與不紅,結果有天壤之別,而其中又無任何規律可循,加上古梨園行的一些傳統,可說演藝圈中人不迷信的真是絕無僅有。

那麼,為什麼會有許許多多的是高學歷的知識份子,或者有相當社經地位的名人;也這麼容易受到蠱惑而身陷其中呢?

這和教育程度、學歷高低、社會地位、貧富貴賤、年紀老少等等幾乎沒有太大的關係,反而是和家庭習俗及宗教傳統、個人性格特質以及對宗教的無知,還有就是個人內在心靈的貧乏以及「貪便宜、抄捷徑」的心態有關。

先說一個小掌故:

在中國北方的荒郊野外一向有不少的狼群,基本上,自從人類有了各種火器之後,狼群平常是儘量不靠近村落活動的,但是,在某些季節,狼群掠食不易,餓狠了,難免就會冒險潛入村莊去偷捕一些家禽家畜;

因此,在北方有種「狼請豬」的說法;為什麼不說「捕、抓、咬、獵」,而說「請」呢?這個就是很有點學問的真實掌故了;

豬是非常容易豢養的一種家畜,和人類相處的關係歷史匪淺,因為豬跑不快,跳不高,性情比較溫馴,而且雜食,幾乎什麼都吃,所以人類喜歡養豬,也因此豬圈也不用特別高大堅固,因為有人飼養,有東西吃,有地方睡,不用自己辛苦覓食,豬幹嘛要逃跑呢?

而狼看準了這些特點,因此不得已必須去吃豬時,通常會由一隻狡猾又有經驗的老狼,趁夜晚人們入睡後,偷偷地潛入豬圈,外面則有一、兩隻狼把風接應;潛入的狼會力道精準的咬豬的尾巴,很痛卻不會受傷,因為一旦受傷劇痛,豬一定會大叫,必然會驚動主人;

而只是很痛,豬本能的就會想要逃跑,往往會連爬帶跳的就翻出了豬圈,這時在外面接應的狼,就會準準的咬住豬的大耳朵,這裡面也是有學問的,吸的力道一樣必須不輕不重,吸太重,豬會掙扎尖叫而撕裂耳朵,同樣會驚動主人,咬太輕,豬會掙脫逃走,所以必須咬到豬痛,又無法掙脫,如果豬略有反抗,狼就會咬重一點,只要順從,狼就會咬輕一點,於是豬為了怕痛,只好任由狼的擺布,狼會咬著豬耳朵半拖半推的,把豬帶著走,如果不是用這種「請」的方式,一頭狼是不可能拖動一隻大肥豬的。最後,總是會把豬「請」回到狼穴,這時狼群就不再客氣了,當然是一擁而上,將豬活活咬死,分而食之。

再說到「羊」,大家常說「小綿羊」,通常是形容溫馴柔弱的意思,可見綿羊是很柔順聽話的一種家畜,而在歐美或紐澳,有大規模畜養綿羊的牧場,人類已經早就訓練一些特種的「牧羊犬」來協助管理羊群,牧羊犬是比人類管理來得更有效率又節省成本的,通常幾千隻羊,只需要三、四隻牧羊犬就能幫忙放牧,因為牧羊犬跑得比人快,可以快速把羊群集中或趕往正確的路途,而綿羊怕牧羊犬咬,也怕牠狂吠,所以自然是非常聽話,乖乖服從的。

人類之中為什麼也會有這種非常聽話,乖乖服從「豬羊」特性的族群呢?

類似羊的;屬於性格柔弱,沒有主見,容易受到同儕親友引導,容易被有心人誘導,甚至明知道不對,可是沒有反抗的自信,或者只能忍氣吞聲,逆來順受,而且最重要的是「太合群」,在團體;從來不敢表達自己的意見,害怕被視為異類,怕被同儕疏遠,只有在團體中才能找到安全感和認同感的。

類似豬的;儘管個性未必柔弱,也很有主見,但是,可能家中原本就有傳統宗教信仰,或者本身對於宗教的徹底無知,色厲內荏,儘管事業有成,非常富有,但是,對於佛道及民俗宗教的因果報應,輪迴轉世說;或者基督教「信神者得永生、不信者下地獄」的恐嚇宣傳手法,因為不懂卻感到害怕;又或者自己在功成名就的過程中,總有一些不為人知的虧心行為,那就更會打心底害怕受到報應,這種心態和「豬怕痛」是一樣的。

當然,從中國「淨土宗」開始,佛教就為無知的社會大眾大開方便法門,反正不用唸自己根本不懂的深奧佛經,也不必去打坐磕頭,只要臨終前一心不亂的唸4個字「阿彌陀佛」,就能往生西方極樂世界;天哪,這是多麼便宜的好事呢?

所以,許多新興宗教,特別是邪教,正是看準了這種現代人「得來速、方便麵」的心理,特別制定了最簡單方便的信仰方式:只要交錢就有功德,只要信仰就能得救,只要供養師父就可以化解一切「因果業力」。

宣稱只要「感恩師父、讚歎師父」,相信師父,供養師父,師父就能「引爆業力」,將你累世的業報一筆勾銷,這是拷貝自「耶穌能赦免世人所有的罪」的謊話,想想,耶穌真的能赦免你的罪嗎?如果在超商偷東西,在捷運上伸鹹豬手,在大街上砍人,被警察抓到,準備移送法辦時,你跟警察說「耶穌可以赦免我的一切罪行」,警察會因此釋放你嗎?法官會因此判你無罪開釋嗎?

依照佛教的說法;連號稱法力無邊的釋迦牟尼,都不能赦免弟子「目犍連」母親的罪業,「師父」又是老幾?他是憑什麼赦免你的罪業?花錢供養就可以獲得赦免嗎?那跟中古世紀的羅馬教廷販賣「赦罪券」不也一樣胡扯和妖言惑眾嗎?

我們活在相對的世界,還有時間的因素,因此「因果律」是存在的,凡事都有前因後果,但是,因果卻又不是絕對的;想想,梨山的果農辛苦的種植蘋果或水梨,拉拉山的果農種植水蜜桃,理論上辛苦種植照管,到了成熟期,當然會有收成的,這是「前因」。但是,假設就在收成期前夕,突然來了一個強烈颱風侵襲,結果,所有果實全部被一掃而空,完全沒有收成,試問;「果」何在?又有誰能補償他們全部的損失?來世嗎?來世會有神佛補償他們,讓他們「因果對等」嗎?

而在台灣為什麼有許許多多年輕的知識份子也會誤入邪教?那因為是台灣政局內鬥空耗十幾年,經濟大衰退,大學畢業生領22K,年輕人對未來「普遍無望」;所引發的心靈空虛沮喪和無助的問題,只有在茫茫大海中隨便抓住一條草繩就當成救命索的危機感,還有就是團體的盲從效應。

自然界是沒有「善惡分別」以及「業報」的,因此,花錢是買不到任何功德的,也無法赦免任何罪行的,「貪便宜、抄捷徑」的心態,以及對宗教的無知,誤以為只要去相信「師父」、供養「師父」,對師父磕頭就能消業,就能有功德,萬事如意,那是癡人說夢,自欺欺人的愚行。
