In the Water Margin, Lu Zhishen remembered the four sentences given by others when he heard the tidal sound of the Qiantang River, so he thought it was time to pass away. Then I took a bath, changed my clothes and sat down and passed away.

Buddhism specializes in solving the problem of life and death. There were many people who were able to decide death on their own after practicing for a lifetime, and there are also many people now. This path is still easy, so there are still many people who practice. The records are from the past, and some Buddhist public accounts and nursing homes broadcast after 2015. This phenomenon is rare but normal. This is the result of other people’s practice. But Lu Zhishen could not see that he had practiced. I feel that the novel is made by pinching two kinds of people together.

Without telling the story, this is really possible. When a person’s body fails, he uses energy to supply life-sustaining organs, such as the respiratory system and circulatory system. At this time, the state that people show is coma. When the dying person has any unfulfilled wishes, it may happen that he first coma, then wake up and explain the funeral, and then die calmly after the funeral. People with stronger willpower may make this process look more controllable and take longer. For example, their mentality is clearer. The look is more peaceful. After being relaxed, he soon entered a coma until he died. But it is essentially the natural failure of the body. High monks can pass away if they want to pass away, but they can live two more days if they can’t. Because their physical condition does not allow them to do so. As for things like predicting the date of his death very early, it is probably the fabrication of the story.

The term “death” has been commonly used over the years because of the death of monks and nuns, and some novels have also used it, so it is equated with “death”. In fact, the so-called “passage” in the death of monks and nuns is mostly honorific. The true “passion” is actually death or nirvana. In fact, very few can achieve this. Buddhism has been attached to too many mysteries, and what kind of magical powers are eye-opening, as if omnipotent. In fact, even the Buddha does not claim to be omnipotent. The premise is always forgotten by people. This sentence itself covers the core of Buddhism practice: the condition of breaking karma. Buddhism believes that the so-called birth and death, fortunes, and even reincarnation of all things in the world are actually causal. If you break the cause and effect, you can jump out of reincarnation and world karma. Death is nothing but the fruit of life, but after death it has to turn into reincarnation. Nirvana means jumping out of cause and effect, and there is no time, space, and karma.

Hahaha, I know this question. In the past few days, I specifically asked people who understand. I know a friend who has been studying Buddhism since 2010. In addition to his own practice, he has also done a lot of motivational work and crazy accumulation of funds. Of course, he felt that he was just an ordinary man who did not learn well. Then, I consulted him. Why, are the practices mentioned in Buddhism true? He: I think it is true, because people who practice well have many phenomena. Predicting time is just one of them. Because it has reached the state of life and death. That is, I leave whenever I want. This situation is more common, especially among practitioners. However, most people don’t like to say anything.

I continue to ask: Then why are some people unable to cultivate for a lifetime? Him: His teacher is very important. After all, he must have inheritance, that is, he must have a real achiever to lead him. Otherwise, it is blind repair. Then, his teacher must keep the precepts and be pure. Also, there are many people who are not practicing at all. Practice is to modify one’s own behavior. To cultivate oneself is to cultivate Buddha, and to cultivate others is to cultivate demons. Some people have learned a little about Buddhism, and every day they see if others are like this. For example, everywhere they say, you can’t do this, you can’t do that… so they are not qualified practitioners. Therefore, it is more difficult to succeed.

His master told him that you were going to die at this time, and then he went to prepare, waited for death, and then died. From a certain scientific point of view, the wise man discovered a certain law of death and told his students the date of his death. When the students knew, they were ready to wait for death. I died at that time. I didn’t take the initiative to die. I think so. The physique is special. (Only in terms of physique, other aspects are a bit fantasy.)

Those who say that it is necessary for the plot of the novel and the author wants the characters to answer whatever they want, IMHO: You Y is to take the bar! The questioner asked why Master Lu passed away in the original plot logic, and discussed the order within this framework, rather than letting you stand on the position that you have not read more than three chapters in this book and use modern science to force it. Attached. I was embarrassed for you when I saw it. If you really want to do this, you should stop watching science fiction movies and playing computer games. !

Passing away] This action was added by the author. After all, the novels are mostly fabricated plots, and you can write them as you want, so if the author wants him to die, he has to die. 2. Does Lu Zhishen have to die? Of course not. It’s just that Lu Zhishen’s branch line ends here. Even if he doesn’t pass away, he must have lived in the temple but survived. For readers, whether he is alive or dead, when the book is over, you will be Say goodbye to Lu Zhishen. There is no difference. 3. How to understand Lu Zhishen’s passing away. In fact, it was just walking away from the wind and waves all the way, Lu Zhishen has fully realized that life and death, good and evil, joys and sorrows, is not important, does not care, anything is fine. You can live or die. To live is to die, and to die is to live. A person with such a good character and such a good martial arts, he died, readers feel it is a pity, but for him, there is no difference. You may think that the one who passed away was Lu Zhishen, but it can also be understood that the one who passed away was Lu Zhishen in the world.

“Lu Zhi is drunk and troubles the Wutai Mountain” (Kunqiang “Drunk on the Mountain Gate”) “The hero’s tears are drunk, and he is separated from the home of the virgin. Xie Mercy is shaved under the lotus platform. There is no way to separate in a blink of an eye. The naked strips come and go without worry. There is a smoke and rain roll. Solo? Any time my mang shoes break the bowl and let it happen.” I really like the verse quoted in Dream of the Red Chamber. Master Lu is also my favorite character in the Water Margin. Everything in life is not brought by birth, not brought away by death, selfless and fearless, and strong without desire. Master Lu parallels chivalry and righteousness, regardless of his own interests, gains and losses. This is a great spirit of sacrifice. Sacrificing oneself and accomplishing others is pure spirituality in the true sense.

This is the classic portrayal of letting go of the butcher knife and becoming a Buddha. How reckless Lu Zhishen was in the fight and killing all his life, he shot when he should do it, how free and easy, his life was unfettered, the last thought was to let go, and he became a Buddha on the spot, achieving the most satisfactory life ending . The reason, in the final analysis, is the Buddhist saying. See through it and let it go. Why can’t the world do this? It’s because the world can’t see through, and see through but can’t let it go. It seems simple, but not easy!

There is a poem to prove that “the Zen stick opens the dangerous road, and the knife kills all the injustices”! Although, the answer is irrelevant. But the counterpart is “put down the butcher knife and become a Buddha.” Therefore, at that instant, Lu Zhishen had an epiphany and had become a Buddha. Buddha can be “born again from Nirvana”. The body is just a skin, but the soul has already jumped out of the Three Realms and is not in the Five Elements!

This is a part of Chinese folk beliefs, and may have a certain source of life, and has been artistically processed in literary works. Lu Zhishen in “Water Margin” is a man who has made murder and arson, but is compassionate. His request for Jin Cuilian’s help only considered that Jin Cuilian was the weak and the object of humiliation and bullying in the incident at the time. As for Jin Cuilian’s own good or bad, he did not consider whether she would return to herself in the future.

Why did Lu Zhishen in the Water Margin become a Buddha? What kind of Buddha became? How did you become a Buddha? First of all, Lu Tiju played a punch in Guanxi Town, Guanxi is a land snake, which is to eliminate harm for the people; second, Lu Tiju has never been close to female sex; third, the Zen name “Zhi Shen” means great Wisdom; Fourth, upside down the willows and making a fuss in Wutai Mountain are some tricks, which contrasts Lu Zhishen’s ability and his later refusal to kill; Fifth, Lu Zhishen’s fight with the iron buddha is to maintain the Buddhist state; Sixth, Lu Zhishen made a big trouble in the wild boar forest to save Lin Chong is the compassionate heart of the Buddhist family; Seventh, Lu Zhishen beats the little overlord Zhou Tong. At that time, Zhou Tong Zhanshan was king, and he was considered a one-stop dragon. Finally, Lu Zhishen captured Fang La, and Fang La was one of them. Wang, this is a real dragon descending. Lu Zhishen passed away shortly after finishing this. Therefore, Lu Zhishen is the dragon descending Arhat.
