农历七月的第15天,是佛教徒视之为盂兰盆节,中国传统民间则视之为“鬼节”或中元节。民间相信,传说中元节当天阴曹地府将放出饿鬼及孤魂,因此这一天普遍被视为不祥日。为了避凶趋吉,民间会祭祀孤魂野鬼,更会遵守各种禁忌,以免冒犯鬼魂。

相反的,农历七月十五对佛教徒而言则是供养诸佛僧众,以功德回向父母,祈愿先人解脱轮回、投生善趣的吉日,此日被称作“盂兰盆节”。佛教徒深信,六趣之中最殊胜的乃人趣,因为人趣众生具足听闻佛法、实修佛法的条件。

 

盂兰盆节的由来

Buddha Shakyamuni with his chief disciples, Shariputra and Maudgalyayana

佛陀释迦牟尼及其弟子舍利子及目犍连。

盂兰盆节始于一个孝子希求解脱母亲痛苦的孝心。据《佛说盂兰盆经》,佛陀释迦牟尼的其中一位弟子——目犍连在证得阿罗汉果后忆念起自己的双亲。欲报父母哺乳之恩,他以神通见其亡母颈长肚大生于饿鬼中长时不得饮食,其亡父则投生在天趣。

眼见此景,目犍连即以钵盛饭尝试向母亲喂食,但食物未入口便已化成火炭。目犍连大叫,悲号涕泣,急忙向佛陀释迦牟尼陈情,希望帮助解脱亡母之苦。

 

据《佛说盂兰盆经》,佛言:

“汝母罪根深结,非汝一人力所奈何。汝虽孝顺,声动天地、天神地祇、邪魔外道、道士、四天王神,亦不能奈何,当须十方众僧威神之力乃得解脱。吾今当说救济之法,令一切难,皆离忧苦。”

image05

目犍连欲向亡母喂食,但所有食物未入口便已化成火炭。

目犍连的母亲之所以受此等苦处,乃因她于在世时将目犍连托付购买食物供僧的钱占为己用而未做供养,最终得此恶果,以至于其子虽已证得阿罗汉果也无法助她解脱饿鬼之苦。

佛陀释迦牟尼于是向目犍连开示,应在七月十五日,即僧众结夏安居(又称自恣日)之日,向十方僧众做供养。佛陀建议的供品如下:饭、百味五果、汲灌盆器、香油锭烛、床敷卧具、尽世甘美,着于盆中。
紧接着,佛陀开示受益的僧众应当诵咒回向施主七世父母。目犍连如法供养,最终累积大量功德,帮助亡母从饿鬼苦中解脱,投生为人。

 

为何佛教徒庆祝盂兰盆节

“盂兰”的梵文是“Ullambana” 意思为“救倒悬”,指解救正在受苦的饿鬼。在佛教中,减轻众生之苦的最殊胜方式,就是将功德回向予一切众生。根据《佛说盂兰盆经》,佛说七月十五乃供僧积累福德,回向投生于恶趣的亲人之殊胜日。

我们在盂兰盆节所造的功德能回向给我们仍在世的父母,并且为今生和来世增广福乐。我们也应该透过这个节日,将功德回向予一切众生,祈愿众生皆能离苦得乐。

 

盂兰盆节与鬼节的分别

盂兰盆节 鬼节
佛教徒为在世或往生的父母、亲人累积功德的殊胜节日。 民间重视的节日之一,人们大多视农历七月为不祥的月份
向三宝做供养,以累积功德,回向予投生恶趣的亲人。功德也可回向予远亲债主及一切众生。 向孤魂野会做供养,以期安抚它们。
据《佛说盂兰盆经》记载,盂兰盆节始于佛陀释迦牟尼的时代。 始于14世纪明朝朱元璋时代。
现代盂兰盆节供品:食物、鲜花、明灯及香供。 现代鬼节供品:冥钞、纸扎品、食物、香烛、娱乐表演。

 

农历七月如何演变成“鬼节”?

根据台湾民俗文物馆所发布的一篇文章,农历七月是在14世纪朱元璋时代才被视作为不祥月。在此之前,农历七月一直都是祭祖孝亲的月份。台湾民俗文物馆的研究报告表示,这是朱元璋因为不愿民间跟皇室共享吉日,才把农历七月嫁祸于鬼怪,使人忌讳农历七月。

记载中也显示朱元璋的军师刘伯温献计派人假装成道士向各州各县散播农历七月之时天将降大灾。自此,农历七月为不祥月之说开始传开,民间于是不会在此月办喜事,更会避免在夜间外游,以免招惹鬼怪。

 

2017年克切拉盂兰盆节法会及供养日

2017年8月27日乃克切拉的年度盂兰盆节法会及供养日。这一天,我们透过殊胜的佛法活动为一切众生累积功德、解脱苦处。今年的庆典于克切拉禅修林举办,一整天的活动就包括了两场殊胜法会,更少不了让信众做供养积累福德的各种机会。

当日进行的首场法会为上师荟供法会。透过这场法会,信众给三宝供食,同时也给饿鬼施食。早上10时,林达民讲法师及谢松平讲法师按照藏传佛教寺院的传统吟诵上师荟供文,带领上百名信众一同进行这场长达两小时的法会。

克切拉所进行的上师荟供乃宗喀巴大师的上师瑜伽,由四世班禅大师洛桑确吉坚赞撰写。透过做大量供养,尤其是无上供养——修心,此修持将能增进我们与上师的法缘。荟供(藏语称tsog)是供养诸佛菩萨的盛宴。布施是佛教徒的主要修持之一,透过这场法会做大量供养将使行者特别有效且快速地积累广大福田。

上师荟供法会中的荟供供养部分唯独曾接受密续修持灌顶的行者才能进行。因此,在密续行者吟诵经文的时候,不曾接受灌顶的人们则在同一时候念诵宗喀巴大师的《缘悲经》。

当日的第二场法会“四百供除障法会·遣送孤魂”于中午2时开始进行。法会开始前每位出席的信众都获得一颗粉团,然后用此粉团在患病的身体部位轻轻搓过,象征带走我们及其他一切众生的病痛,甚至是带走恶业及负面能量。人们在搓完后在用手掌把粉团压制成骨头的形状,然后透过法会的加持力,将这些象征我们病痛及恶业的粉团送走。

20170827-tm-EVT-KH-ullambana2017-00123

在四百供除障法会上供百盏灯。

人们在这个四百供除障法会上供养用朵玛粉团制成的百座佛塔、百个朵玛、百盏灯、百个替身食子。在古西藏的年代,由于这个法会的供品数量极为大,因此只有富有人家及贵族有能力进行。

四百供除障法会祈请佛陀释迦牟尼、大威德金刚及多杰雄登护法加持及庇佑。配合上四百供的大量供养,这个法会能帮助我们积累广大福田,消除恶业及影响我们身体健康、财务状况及导致非自然干扰的障碍。如果你身患重病、面对重大的财务危机或官司缠身,甚至可能是面对人身威胁及邪灵干扰,这个法会将对你非常有帮助。

四百供除障法会的利益绝非三言两语能尽述,因此,能赞助这场法会并把功德回向予往生及尚在世的的亲人及一切众生,绝对是无比殊胜。

陈锦丽讲法师带领四百供除障法会的进行。

20170827-ck-EVT-KH-ullambana2017-00126

要为四百供除障法会设立佛坛需要用上好几个小时的时间,因为这些朵玛、替身食子和佛塔都是用粉团捏制而成的。

20170827-ck-EVT-KH-ullambana2017-00130

替身食子象征着法会的赞助人。当把这个替身食子送出大殿的时候,我们应观想所有病痛和恶业也将随着这个替身食子被送走。

根据传统做法,将这些朵玛送出大殿的人在行走的时候不准回头。

替身食子及其他供品在被送出去大殿后放置在一个安静的角落。

    以前小时候总是听到长辈们劝告我们尽量避免选择在农历七月鬼节爬山、靠近有水的地方(如海边或湖边)、森林、甚至晚上不要太夜归。然而,自从我多参与克切拉的活动及阅读这篇博文后,让我更清楚了解盂兰盆节和鬼节的差别。博文里所提到的盂兰盆节让我们可以透过法会和向三宝做供养和其他的供品,并将这些功德回向予我们的父母和一切有情的众生,以减轻众生之苦。至于民间相信农历七月鬼节为不祥的月份,并用冥钞、纸扎品和食物等来祭拜孤魂野鬼。

    博文所提到克切拉禅修林举办的年度盂兰盆节法会及供养日,包括两场殊胜法会让许多信众可以趁此机会做供养,并积累福德。尤其是第二场“四百供除障法会”,在法会开始前每位出席者都获得一颗粉团,然后用此粉团在患病的身体部位轻轻搓过。搓完之后,将此粉团压制成骨头的形状,然后透过法会的加持力,将这些象征我们病痛及恶业的粉团一起被送走。这是难得一见的法会,要感谢主办当局有如此细心的安排,让出席者受益与减轻他们的病痛。

    《四百供除障法会》

    在金剛乘中四百供禳解除障法是一個極其殊勝的除障去魔法門
    ,是藏傳佛教事業法中應用極為普遍之法門,其緣起為佛陀在
    世時,帝釋天子因過去業力所致,為四魔(天魔、死魔、蘊魔、
    煩惱魔)所侵擾,痛苦萬分請佛庇護,佛陀即入甚深禪定化廣大
    壇城,佛慈悲於禪定中右手結勝施印,以四指尖勾召於掌中,
    而將四百件物品布施於四魔。

    帝釋天子因獲此殊勝四百供養修法,疾病即得痊癒!傳至龍樹
    菩薩,埋於金剛座之柱礅下,後由五百班智達取出,授予西藏
    努欽桑傑耶喜,遂傳入西藏;本法有顯密二種不同傳承作法,
    一般依顯宗傳規而行,若依密宗則為黑閻摩續所屬,經蓮師傳
    承弘傳。

    Wow …such a unique island called Socotra which i did not know before or come across . Everything from trees to flowers looks so unique. A place home to a panoply of strange plants and animals uniquely which adapted to the hot, harsh, windswept island. The landscape of this remote Socotra Island looks as if it comes from a sci-fi film.
    From what I see through the pictures this Socotra Island, looks more like Alien place. It’s truly unlike any place on earth and is also called the ‘Lost World ‘ to some of the tourist. I did some research on this island .
    It seem over millions of years, the isolated island in the Arabian Sea has cultivated a unique biodiversity unlike anywhere else on Earth. Twisted dragon’s blood trees and bulbous bottle trees have made Socotra a place of legends, feared by sailors throughout history and believed by some to be the site of the original Garden of Eden.
    Now it seem to be a tourist attraction in Yemen after when UNESCO named it as World Natural Heritage Site in 2006. Its wonderful news as UNESCO recognizes the importance of preserving the island.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these unique island with us.

    Beautiful sacred painting by Rinpoche. Amazing to know RInpoche as a small kid is so talented in drawing and painting . Yet after so many years the painting still looks good condition. Such a beautiful White Tara painting and now Rinpoche still paints.
    Wow interesting stories behind the scared painting of the powerful white Tara. When we have trust and faith that’s how these powerful Tara will help us.
    Thank you for sharing with us.

    The two beautiful Yeti painting comes a long way from Nepal with love to Malaysia .Specially for Rinpoche……such a beautiful gift and unique .. Knowing Rinpoche like Bigfoot so much. Every gift which is given, even though it be small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection. It is not the gift but the thought that counts.
    Rejoice for Mitra Poudel and Khom Thapa
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful paintings.

    This is a great news to animals. Gucci, a leading fashion company going to stop fur clothing now. I just watched a video about the people peel off the fox skin. So cruelty.
    Even though we own any fur clothing, we shouldn’t wear it because this will create a desire cause to others to buy more fur clothing .
    Human beings are very intelligent but we shouldn’t take away animals rights to live in this planet.
    Thanks Rinpoche sharing.

    藏传佛教格鲁派第十世班禅喇嘛被视为阿弥陀佛的化身,并且是继达赖尊者后拥有最高权威的佛法大师。第十世班禅喇嘛是一名颇有影响力的大师,每当他给予公开开示时,数以千计的人都会前去听法。
    第十世班禅喇嘛和达赖尊者的关系可以追溯到第五世达赖尊者时期。在当时,第五世达赖尊者的上师,同时也是杜固扎巴坚赞(多杰雄登前世之一)的上师是第四世班禅喇嘛。为了感激上师,达赖尊者赐予上师“班禅大师”头衔,并对班禅大师的三任前世加以追封。此外,达赖尊者也将扎什伦布寺赐为其上师的驻锡地。而此扎什伦布寺内还安设一间供奉多杰雄登的护法殿至今,并且还成为著名的旅游胜地。
    由此可见,如果多杰雄登就如藏人行政中央所说的修持多杰雄登会伤害西藏事业,那么当时的第五世达赖尊者为何要赠送设有多杰雄登的护法殿的扎什伦布寺予第四世班禅喇?如果多杰雄登真的会伤害西藏事业,那么第十世班禅喇嘛为何要费尽心思来撰写这篇约30至40页的的“妙音怙主(宗喀巴)佛教护法天王金刚具力五部威猛尊酬供仪轨”的祈愿文?难道第十世班禅喇嘛铁了心肠不再理会或是存心要危害西藏人民?这一切的一切,让我们不得不深入的思考。

    It is very worrying that there are such high percentage of plastic fibres found in our tap water. Even developed country such as UK, Germany and France has 72% of their tap water contaminated with plastic fibres. I guess this is the price we have to pay. With improve technologies and new science inventions we keep coming out with new products that uses various types of plastics and chemicals to bring down the production cost. But unfortunately, nothing comes free as human who will have to suffer the implication of these plastics fibres in the form of water and air, and it is alarming to our health. I think the only way is to create awareness to people telling them how harmful it can bring to us and we should avoid using the products that contribute the pollution and use alternative.

    It is good news that Tibetan MP Venerable Tenpa Yarphel speaks up against Nechung. Why would a democratic country listen to an oracle to seek advise for the country governance and administration? It just puzzled me. If Nechung is right, why isn’t the country and people progressing but divided further with the Dorje Shugden ban? What more Nechung is an not enlightened dharma protector. It was proven that so many Nechung’s prophecies was wrong but none would question and CTA would still follow the wrong advice. The CTA leaders continue to segregate, discriminate and remove all the human rights against Dorje Shugden practitioners such as education, medical, religion and etc. This is so illegal.

    In this age, we should be able to think and fight for our rights. I hope more people like Venerable Tenpa Yarphel will speak up against the unfair Tibetan leadership towards their people. Everyone should be treated equally and especially for a Buddhism country.

    Shocking to read and hear this, happening in our own country. Even though this post is old , feeling sad for those cats starving been kept at two pet boarding premises which they called pets hotel. Pets owner discovered that those pets were left abandoned and starved . They also found dead cats and many were in a sad condition. Our local newspapers reported that about 200 cats and a dog were rescued from that premise alone .Another location about 100 cats were found and rescued. These episode was highlighted in news national wide. It such a shameful act .How can the owner of the premises do it for their own selfishness just because of celebrations.
    It is good that the authorities took a stern legal action against the owners of the centre.
    Animals are ignorant and do not deserve to be treated so badly. Be kind and caring to all sentient beings. Have empathy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    A beautiful approach by the British MPs has recommended that people reduce the amount of meat they eat to help prevent food shortages in Britain . Even though it is political approach yet still happy as less animals will be killed for foods on the table.
    The massive increase in meat consumption in recent decades has led to the price of grain increase which used for animal feed. Its also lead to widespread deforestation and pressure on agricultural land. The MP are trying to tackle food wastage as half the food bought from UK supermarkets goes in the bin. The UK population are encouraged to eat less meat in long run.
    Thank you for sharing.

    So touching ….watching this beautiful videos , could not controlled my tears too. Its such a warm moment when the two of them met again after a long search nearly 25 years of a hopless search . Mitchell Shigemoto has never forgotten how James Pearson saved his life. In foreign places, and the way Shigemoto’s relationship with James Pearson training together and fighting ,along side in the war ,they became best friends.
    James Pearson is truly a selfless ,kind and friendly person, nor matter what happen stands by Mitchell Shigemoto.
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing this inspiring post.

    Venerable Tenpa Yarphel showed great courage to voice up and pointed out that if the Tibetan Government-in-Exile is really practice democracy, basically no one will be discriminated and segregated regardless of ethnic group, gender, religious and etc. The people should work together for the growth of the state instead of just listened or seek advice from Nechung and ultimate decisions are still come from HH the Dalai Lama in spite of his retirement from politics.
    Miraculously, Tibetan community continues to believe the Nechung although they have experienced the false prophecies given by Nechung with the possible reason that no one can fully understand the language that Nechung speaks.

    Hope there are more people like Ven. Tenpa Yarphel stand firm and continue to speak up for truth just to benefit and bring no harm to the people.

    So sad and heart breaking watching this video ,did not able to watch that part when our best friend was put into the boiling pot. Disgusting and cruel indeed. How can they do it and later sold as meat in restaurants…..so inhuman and shocking. My heart sink for a moment to see what happening to those poor dogs. They were tortured, abused before death. Dog meat trade should stop in this modern civilization , where dog deserved much better to live ,love, like us. They are our men best friends after all. They are one of us ,accompany us ,guard our house and keeps us happy. Please do not hurt them i plea.
    Hope the government or people concerned stop the dog meat trade industries. Go on vegetarian is the right healthy choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    Unseen beings do exists . We human cannot see but our best friends do sense the unseen being existing around and are sensitive too. Animals do behave unusually .
    There must be some kind or unhappy event happened long time ago. A fire or someone killed ?? The unseen being are trapped ,maybe which we won’t know. They need the couple to set them free from sufferings and pain. Whatever it is , its up to the couple after they have investigated of what happen. Hope the haunted house with unseen being have a happy ending.
    Thank you for sharing, interesting videos .

    Very weird and strange creatures which i have not come across before .The first sight looks scary to me but interesting to know the true facts of it which came from different countries across the globe. There might be more strange creatures around which the researchers have not found them yet. Well it is best to leave them alone or else those weird creatures will be extinct in the near future. Give them a chance and they deserve to live in the wild or sea or anywhere they belong and call home.

    I have just heard about the 9th year theory few weeks ago. It seems to bring bad luck or omen. Never really believe in such thing but I guess everyone will have their ups and down, and I believe all this is due to our karma ripening. I for example was born on Friday the 13th, of which a very unlucky number for westerners. But so far life have been good. We are all very fortunate to have Rinpoche to give us Dorje Shugden teachings. When we have full trust on Dorje Shugden the dharma protector, we should not be afraid of the 9th year or even 13th theory.
    Thank you Datuk May for your sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

This is a unique thangka of Pelden Hlamo with Dorje Shugden and Setrap and Nechung. Of course they all get along unlike what Tibetan leadership likes to say they don\'t get along.

In the bitter coldness of Yachen Gar, Tibet, several nuns are practicing meditation. You can see many small single \'huts\' in the background. They do this yearly and throughout the year. It is very inspiring to see people practice even under extreme conditions because they realize how samsara is so full of deceptions. Praise to the Dharma that liberates us with truth and practice.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

  • Norma Jean

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
