回光活法第七 Chapter Seven - Lively Method for Reverting Light Note - DDB
呂祖曰: The Patriarch Lu said:
7.1.1 回光循循然行去,不要廢棄正業。古人云:事來要應過,物來要識破。 While practicsing reverting light accordingly, do not abandon proper duties. The ancients said, Should respond to things and see through objects when they come.
7.1.2 子以正念治事,即光不為物轉,光即自回。 If you manage things with proper thought, i.e. light not turned by objects, then light will revert by itself.
7.1.3 此時時無相之回光也,尚可行之,而況有真正著相回光乎。 This ever and again reverting light can still be practised when having no mental image, moreover there is the reverting light when really showing mental image.


日用間能刻刻隨事返照,不著一毫人我相。便是隨地回光,此第一妙用。 If in daily use, one can revert light all the time while following things, and not to show mental image that separate others and me at all, this is reverting light anywhere. This is the primary wonderful functioning.


清晨能遣盡諸緣,靜坐一二時最妙。 And if one is able to rid oneself of all causes, sit and meditate for one to two hours in early morning, then it is most wonderful.
7.2.3 凡應事接物,只用返照法,便無一刻間斷。如此行之,三月兩月,天上諸真,必來印證矣。 Whenever responding to things or contacting objective things, only use the "mental reflection" method, then will not be cut off or separated for even one instant. Practicising like this for two to three months, those men of realities from Heaven will surely come to validate.
