A Story to listen to when you want to tell something important

A woman is worried about the health of her fiancé, a 54-year-old man.
Her fiancé’s hobby is motorcycles, and it seems like he doesn’t dislike exercise.
He suffers from an incurable primary aldosteronism, and has metabolic syndrome and high blood pressure, for which he takes antihypertensive medication.
He has a bit of pot belly and he can’t leave any food on his dish.
He loves Ramen so much that he drinks all the soup.
She thinks that he should leave the soup for his health, because it has too much salt and too high calories.
However, she doesn’t know how to talk to him well about it.

Taigu Osho uses the Buddhist word “ho-ben” (the ways to lead someone to the true world).
He explains with specific examples of “ho-ben” used by a father for his children when their house was on fire, as told in the Buddhist scriptures.

As a prescription, Taigu Osho tells a woman to change the way she uses her energy because she is using her energy a bit incorrectly.
Using the experience of a female acquaintance whose husband is an incurable disease, he suggests that instead of just crying, begging and complaining to her husband, she needs to use “ho-ben”, think what she can do for his health and make very healthy and delicious Ramen with her love.

婚約者である54歳男性の健康について悩んでいる女性からのお便りです。
婚約者の男性は趣味がバイクで運動は嫌いではないようですが、難病の原発性アルドステロン症を患い、メタボで高血圧で、降圧剤を服用しています。
彼はお腹が少々出ており、食べ物を残せない性分で、ラーメンのスープを飲み干すほどラーメンが大好物です。
ラーメンは塩分もとり過ぎでカロリーも多く、彼の健康の為にもスープは残すべきだと思いますが、そのことについて彼にどう上手く話したら良いかという相談内容です。
大愚和尚は「方弁」(人を真っ当な道に導く為の手段)という仏教言葉を用いながら、仏典の中で語られている、家が火事になった時に父親が子供達に使った方弁の具体例を出して説明しています。
処方箋として、相談者である女性のエネルギーの使い方が間違っている為、エネルギーの使い方を変えることを伝えています。
大愚和尚の知り合いである、夫が難病の女性の経験談を用いて、夫にただ泣いて頼んで文句を言うのではなく、方弁を使うことの大切さを説いています。
相談者の愛情をもって、婚約者の男性の健康の為に何ができるかや、とても健康で美味しいラーメンを作ることを提案しています。
