Courage

勇气

A father was really worried about his son, who was sixteen years old but had no courage at all. So the father decided to call on a Buddhist monk to train his child.

一位父亲非常担心他的儿子,儿子已经十六岁了,可一点勇气都没有。所以父亲决定前去拜访一名和尚训练他的儿子。

The Buddhist monk said to the boy's father, “You should leave your son alone here. I'll make him into a real man within three months. However, you can't come to see him during this period.”

和尚对孩子的父亲说你要把孩子单独留在这儿。我会在三个月内使他成为真正的男子汉。可是,在这个阶段,你不能来看望他。”

Three months later, the boy's father returned. The Buddhist monk arranged a boxing match between the child and an experienced boxer. Each time the fighter struck the boy, he fell down, but at once the boy stood up; and each time a punch knocked him down again, then the boy stood up again. Several times later, the Buddhist monk asked, “What do you think of your child?"

三个月之后,孩子的父亲返回这里。和尚安排了一场拳击比赛,让他的孩子和有经验的拳击手交锋。每次拳击手击中孩子的时候,孩子都会倒地,但是每次他都站了起来;当拳击手再次把他打倒的时候,孩子又站了起来。多次以后,和尚问:“你觉得你的儿子怎么样?”

“What a shame!” The boy’s father said, “I never thought he would be so easily knocked down. I needn't have him left here any longer.” “I'm sorry that that's all you see. Don't you see that each time he falls down, he stands up again instead of crying? That's the kind of courage you wanted him to have.”

“太丢人了!”孩子父亲说我从来没有想到过他这么容易被击倒。我不会把他再留在这里的。”“我很遗憾你就看到这些。难道你没有看见,他每次倒下马上又站了起来,而不是哭泣吗?那就是你要他具备的勇气。”

If each time you are knocked down you have the courage to stand up again, then you can be proud of yourself.

如果你每次被打倒而有勇气再次站起来的话,那么你就可以为自己骄傲了。
