漢文帝孝治天下

母親節快到了,我們想和大家分享一個關於孝道的故事。

漢文帝劉恒是漢高祖第四個兒子,自幼聰明懂事,對母親薄氏很孝順,晨昏定省。

文帝登基後,薄太后病重,文帝侍奉左右、晝夜不離。為能即時照顧母親,他不脫衣服睡覺,如此,母親呼喚他時,便能隨時起身。每回湯藥熬好後,他都會先嚐一嚐,確定不會太苦或太熱,才捧給母親喝。

薄太后看在眼裡,深受感動。她對文帝說:『我的病情不會太快恢復。皇宮裡有很多僕人可以服侍我,你不需要親自侍奉。』

文帝聽後,跪在母親面前說:『如果現在不能親自照顧您,我什麽時候才有機會報答您的養育之恩?』

三年後,薄太后逐漸康復。大家都說,這歸功於文帝全心全意的照顧。此後,皇宮內外的人都更加尊重文帝,把他當做侍奉雙親的楷模。漢朝以孝治天下,人們把孝順父母視為最可敬的美德。

古代中國被稱為神州,天人合一的理念是那個時代的普世信仰,人們相信有德行的君王才能得到上天的庇佑,給他的子民帶來太平盛世。而人品與德行是得到上天眷顧的一個重要原因。漢文帝的諡號為「孝文皇帝」,他創造了中國歷史上第一個盛世「文景之治」。也許,他正是因為至孝的德行,而得到了上天的眷顧。

母親節即將來臨,神韻藝術品精心為您準備溫馨精緻禮品供您選擇,送給含辛茹苦、無私奉獻的媽媽。您也會和漢文帝一樣,因為向母親奉上禮物的孝心,而得到上天的眷顧呢!

My grandparents visited the sick, showed their granddaughters Love instead of using lots of words, offered a listening ear with a kind word of wisdom & a hot meal; yet both died alone in many ways. This story makes me wonder who will be there for that man who cared for his mother when he is
old. For it seems in my life, living here in America, people only care for people when they are paid cash money.

This story also makes me forget about my many fears of going to check on my mother whose health has been compromised.

Thank you for sharing this story and the comments that followed. For I, too, am distant from my mother, siblings & family (ex-husband & adult children). Each seem to have unresolved hurts that I unknowingly may have caused.

Blessings & Peace be with You

I really loved your story this year, its very touching and it warms up my heart as well and I have gentle soul in the inside and warm on the outside. Also I’m very closed to my mother.
Thank you very much and God Bless You
Kind Regards

This illustration is an example of what empathy and love can do and the power of compassion is always strong in those that are aware of it. There is nothing more important than life and once understood you can really reach out with the truth that has always been inside of you because the more that you reach in the more you will reach out. Compassion, truth and tolerance will never need reprimand.

My mother has been living with us for 8 years and will be 100 August 19 and I and my wife of 51 years will take care of her until God calls her to heaven. I truly love all that your company stand for and I ask The God of heaven to bless you and your mission .
