而在今年的疫情中,又見識到另外一位了不起女人 -- Joan Baez,她以一個歌手的身分,從事非暴力社會運動,影響60年代美國的音樂及美國社會至深,稱之為傳奇亦不為過。粗略的研究她的生平後,除了升起無比的敬佩之心,也發現了昭慧法師與 Joan Baez 的相似。
本文將先略述 Joan Baez的生平,再從她們的相似處,勾勒出現實版人間菩薩的面貌:勇敢、無我與智慧。而本文的目的也不在比較這兩位人間菩薩,而是從其高度相似的思想根源,學習菩薩行者應該具有的思想觀念與智慧,以及超凡的人格特質中,學習如何鍛鍊自己。

The Bodhisattva thought originates in the Mahayana sutras. The acts of the Bodhisattvas in the sutras are respected, admired, and moving, but there are also doubts: Is this too surreal? Have we ever seen it in the world? It wasn't until I knew Master Chao-hwei and what she did, that the original unrealistic imagination of Bodhisattvas were put into perspective. Complicated human minds and complex causes form a complex world and good and evil are complex terms. "Saving hardship" is not as simple as saving a person out of water, fire or from thieves. It requires ethical
judgment, unimpeded debate, and a strong will. Only with great courage can a Bodhisattva overcome opposition, obstruction and slander.
This year, with COVID-19 bringing a challenging pandemic, I came across the history of an amazing woman, Joan Baez, who was engaged in non-violent social movements as a singer. She had a profound impact on American music and American society in the 1960s. It's not an exaggeration to call her a legend. When researching her life, in addition to my heart filling with immense admiration, I also discovered similarities between her and Master Chao-hwei.
This article will first outline the life of Joan Baez, and from their similarities, outline aspects of an alive Bodhisattva: bravery, selflessness and wisdom. Beyond this comparison, the objective of the article is to convey the idea and wisdom of a bodhisattva practitioner may be improved, illustrated by the highly similar ideological roots, as well as the extraordinary personality traits of Master Chao-hwei and Joan Baez. They are two examples of ideals from which bodhisattva practitioners can learn how to improve themselves.
