五台山位于中国山西省,因五峰耸立,上平坦如台而闻名。人们普遍相信这是智慧佛文殊菩萨在人间的道场,相传每一座山峰皆住着文殊菩萨的其中一个化身。

五台山南台有普济寺,内供白色智慧文殊。西台有法雷寺,供骑着狮子的狮吼文殊。中台山顶有演教寺,主供手持智慧宝剑之儒童文殊。五台之中以北台为最高,海拔3058米,峰顶有灵应寺,内供无垢文殊。东台有望海寺,主供四臂聪明文殊。

五台山上共有超过53所佛教寺院,其中汉传寺院为数比藏传寺院和蒙古寺院来得多。历史记载,西藏与五台山关系密切。著名西藏学者布顿仁钦珠在其著作《布顿佛教史》(佛教史大宝藏论)中提到,第一位藏王颂赞干布曾到五台山,建立了108座寺院;而另一位藏王赤松德赞则被视为文殊菩萨的化身。我们能清楚在赤松德赞的画像上,看到他肩上有着文殊菩萨的象征标志:经书和宝剑。赤松德赞其中一项最伟大的贡献,就是在西藏建立了第一所佛教寺院,对西藏佛教在当地的蓬勃发展起着关键性的作用。

五台山上著名的大白塔

藏人相信文殊菩萨的化身之一萨迦班智达贡嘎坚赞也曾拜访五台山。西藏历史记载,帕里地区有一座小五台山,拥有完整的五座山峰,位于萨迦班智达圆寂地甘肃省凉州地区以南处。萨迦班智达赞此地优美如五台山,于公元1246年在该地建立了嘎达寺。他甚至形容此地为五台山的分支。

中国最勤政爱民的皇帝康熙与五台山关系密切。曾降旨刊布蒙古文甘珠尔的康熙皇帝,在该译著序文中被誉为文殊菩萨的化身:

“具一切智救主文殊,幻化人身登无畏狮黄金宝座,福泽万民。此除康熙文殊圣上之外,再无二人……”

康熙皇帝曾亲访五台山不下五次,这对一位皇帝而言极为罕见。他 频密到访五台山也反映出满清皇朝与文殊菩萨之间的密切关系。在一份记载康熙巡游五台山的《山图》中,康熙与文殊菩萨的形象被巧妙地融合为一。以下图为例,康熙射杀老虎的举动可巧妙地被比喻成文殊菩萨降伏毒龙征服大地。

以上几个例子,仅显示数世纪以来藏人与五台山的密切关系。

不久前,陈宝甄和我有幸到五台山朝圣。尽管只是短短一天的行程,我们也心怀感激。由于时间有限,我们只能拜访几所格鲁寺院,如罗睺寺、广仁寺、菩萨顶和普济寺。以下为大家简单介绍一下这些寺院,希望大家喜欢或能因此萌生到五台山朝圣的念头。五台山上拥有多处文殊圣地,绝对是那些有意种下智慧善因的佛教徒必须拜访的圣地之一。

罗睺寺

罗睺寺建于唐代,原为汉传佛教寺院,清朝期间被改为格鲁寺院,为五台山上十大著名格鲁寺院之一。罗睺寺自古就是一所被保留得相对完整的寺院,是香客到五台山朝圣必访之地。

广仁寺

广仁寺就位于罗睺寺旁,尽管规模较其他寺院为小,设备却相当齐全,不仅拥有本身的艺术部和 藏医门诊部,还有一个供游客和修行者在 五台山留宿的客房等。

此外,广仁寺的文殊殿内还收藏着珍贵的甘珠尔(佛陀所说教法之总集)。

清康熙年间,据说康熙皇帝曾不下五次到五台山巡游。这所寺院于康熙四十四年(1705年)建成,并于1952年重新整修。

据一位驻寺师父说,寺院两侧还有特别为至尊班禅大师和达赖尊者而设的夏宫。广仁寺的僧众多由来自西藏安多地区最具影响力的拉卜楞寺僧人组成。

菩萨顶寺

菩萨顶为五台山上最大、最完整的格鲁寺院。寺院座落于中台之巅灵鹫峰上。1656年,清顺治皇帝将菩萨顶改为格鲁寺院,那也是该寺最辉煌的年代。康熙皇帝赐寺院大喇嘛提督印,并下命令山西全省均向该寺进贡,继而树立了菩窿顶在五台上格鲁寺院中的统领地位。

数个世纪以来,清朝皇帝、蒙古王公、西藏高僧等每到五台山朝圣,都会住在菩萨顶。至尊班禅大师和达赖尊者拜访五台山时,也都会到那里给开示。1980年十世班禅大师在该寺弘法就是其中一个著名的例子。

    Dear All

    I would like to share with you the sacred prayer of Manjushri – A Concert Names of Manjushri (’Jam-dpal mtshan-brjod, Skt. Mañjuśrī-namasamgiti), which consists of 160 verses and mantra sentences. One version is translated by Alexander Berzin, a scholar, translator, and teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, and the other one is from FPMT.

    谢谢仁波切和张君慧分享关于五台山文殊圣地的资讯,让大家还没朝圣之前,先来了解五台山的朝圣热身之玈。感恩师父的开示,如绝对想要种下智慧善因的佛教徒必须到此地朝圣。
    五台山,我们来了!😘😍👍

    五台山是中国佛教寺庙建筑最早地方之一,也被视为中国四大圣山之一。五台山的佛教寺院共超过53间,而其中的汉传寺院为数比藏传寺院和蒙古寺院来得多。

    根据历史记载,西藏与五台山有着密切的关系。在博文中所提到的寺院,我们不难看到有好多寺院供奉来自藏传佛教格鲁派的宗喀巴大师以及设有格鲁派传承至尊班禅大师的法座。这包括:
    1. 罗睺寺
    (特点:原为汉传佛教寺院,清朝期间被改为格鲁寺院。是一所被保留得相对完整的寺院)
    2. 广仁寺
    (特点:文殊殿内还收藏着珍贵的甘珠尔。寺院两侧还有特别为至尊班禅大师和达赖尊者而设的夏宫。)
    3. 菩萨顶寺
    (特点:寺院座落于中台之巅灵鹫峰上,也是五台山上最大、最完整的格鲁寺院。数个世纪以来,清朝皇帝、蒙古王公、西藏高僧等每到五台山朝圣,都会住在菩萨顶。至尊班禅大师和达赖尊者拜访五台山时,也都会到那里给开示。)

    感谢仁波切和张君慧分享此博文,可以让我们了解五台山以及值得我们参观的几间寺院。

    Very powerful teachings of the 35 Confessional Buddhas Practice which is truly amazing to purify our defilements and negative karma. We need to practice this 35 Confessional Buddhas Practice so as we’re not creating much heavy karma for ourselves. The power of purification is so incredible. Good explanation of purification of karma for us to understand. We are so forfunate given a chance to purify our Karma in Kechara Forest Retreat doing reciting Mantras, circumambulation, and prostrations .
    Thank You, Rinpoche for sharing with us the importance of these practice and the details explanation of purification of karma .

    Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen is perhaps one of the more notable previous lives of Dorje Shugden. In this incarnation, he is said to have made the promise to arise as a Dharma Protector to protect the precious teachings of his teacher Lama Tsongkhapa, thus laying the foundation for Dorje Shugden to manifest later, in another incarnation.

    Duldzin, which is an abbreviation of Dulwa Zinpa, literally means “Vinaya Holder” in Tibetan. This is actually a title bestowed upon him in recognition of his pure monkhood and incredible knowledge and understanding of the Vinaya texts — scriptures that contain teachings by Lord Buddha on monastic discipline.

    He is also the disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa that built Ganden monastery. He is supposed to be the Gaden Tripa after Lama Tsongkhapa passed away. However, he politely refused to ascend to the throne because he wanted to go and do deeper spiritual practices. Later, he fulfilled his promised and rose as Dorje Shugden to protect his Guru’s precious teachings.

    Dorje Shugden ban has been around for 20 years now and it had created a lot of suffering and destroyed many practitioner’s spiritual paths. The ban forces everybody who has been giving Dorje Shugden practice by their Guru to choose between their Guru and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It is a very cruel situation that the ban puts everyone in.

    When one chooses to abandon the practice, it is equal to them abandoning their guru who gave them the practice. When they break their guru samaya, their spiritual path is finished. There are no attainments or whatsoever that will come to them no matter what practice they do. It will not work without the blessings of the guru.

    If they choose to hold the practice to their heart, they will face the wrath of Dalai Lama’s supports and to be called traitor or Chinese dog. They will be discriminated and segregated in their own community which make their life so much harder just because they choose to honour their guru samaya.

    Dorje Shugden manifests in a Deva form (a form in the 6 realms) so he can give us very swift assistance. He is a ‘young’ protector as he arose only 300 years ago. He is very effective in dealing with problems we have in this era, he helps us to remove our obstacles so we can practice the Dharma. We can chant his mantra: OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA for at least 21 times a day or more to connect with him. But it will be better if we can do his practice daily.

    If you are new to Tibetan Buddhism and not sure what practice to do, you should start with Tsongkhapa practice. Tsongkhapa is an emanation of Manjushri, Chenrezig, and Vajrapani. When we recite Tsongkhapa’s mantra we are invoking the energy of wisdom, compassion and skillful mean. Our mind will be more stable, calm and clear.

    Learn more about Tsongkhapa’s practice from here:

    Gyenze is the increase form of Dorje Shugden. His practice is to help us to increase our inner and outer wealth, our health, our relationship with people, etc. He gives us a conducive condition so we can practice Dharma and be liberated from sufferings. His practice is very easy to do and it does not take a long time. Start your practice today to connect with the increase energy of Dorje Shugden.

    Interesting article…. I have heard of hippes many years ago but not much information and details known. Long forgotten till after reading this article I am aware as such it still exist nowadays. To me they were just travellers having long hairs and staying in tents, exploring themselves the world around them. They gave up their comfortable lifestyle to live in poverty. At least now I begin to understand about them.
    Its origins may be traced to European social movements in the 19th and early 20th century. They were a group of people who rebelled against the traditional American lifestyle, craving peace and happiness. They were often vegetarian and eco-friendly people. Up to these days the hippie unique culture is still alive, especially in the United States . So there are still 17 best US cities where the hippes can be found. Interesting to know each of the hippies cities got to offer, their culture and lifestyle .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Li Kheng for this wonderful post for readers to have a good insight understanding of the Tibetan leadership’s prohibition of Dorje Shugden’s practice. Well researched article with supporting evidence, to reveal the suffering and harm on those practitioners.
    Dorje Shugden is the emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom and arose about 400 years ago to protect the teachings as taught by Lama Tsongkhapa. Many highly attained Lamas has been practicing many hundred years before the ban and they cannot be wrong . The Tibetan leadership has been exploiting their own people all these years since the ban. Many families are torn apart , Shugden people had to break away from their monasteries, denied medical services ,schools were some of the examples of the sufferings. There are more than enough evidence showing that there is no religious freedom or true democracy within Tibetan society. Interesting read.
    Interesting read……. Thanks again with folded hands. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon.

    For people who are sick, Medicine Buddha is a very good practice. Recently, a new holy site Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain was added in Kechara Forest Retreat to benefit people with sickness. We can collect highly energised and blessed water with healing properties from The Medicine Buddha healing fountain for consumption or stray animals.

    Dorje Shugden is a very beneficial practice to modern people. He helps us to overcome our obstacles and fulfill our wishes very quickly. Tsem Rinpoche has very kindly composed a short prayer that we can do daily. If you don’t have much time to do prayers, this will be a good start.

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.

I requesed His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to write out the mantra of Vajra Yogini. He immediately compassionately obliged me. This is the mantra as written by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise.

    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

Every single child is gifted and talented in a particular area. Every single one also has particular challenges. But we know that if we are patient and calm and we wear our perspectacles and we keep believing, we will eventually see the specific magic of each child. Well done and thank you to all the talented students and your hard work performance on KSDS Graduation Ceremony 2018. By Asyley Chia KSDS
