32Marks001

Ketika Buddha historis, Pangeran Siddharta Gautama, mencapai pencerahan di bawah pohon Bodhi di Bodhgaya, beliau dianggap sebagai makhluk sempurna. Konon, tubuh fisiknya mengandung tanda-tanda kesempurnaan ini. Fisiknya yang sempurna adalah hasil dari mengumpulkan kebajikan selama tiga kalpa pada banyak kelahirannya yang terdahulu. Dalam Lagu dari Pengalaman yang dikomposisikan oleh Lama Tsongkhapa, tubuh tercerahkan sang Buddha adalah “tubuh yang terlahir dari sepuluh juta kebajikan dan keunggulan.”

Ketika Pangeran Siddharta lahir, peramal Asita datang mengunjungi pangeran yang baru lahir. Banyak dari kalian yang mengenal kisah hidup sang Buddha mengetahui bahwa Asita memberikan ramalan kepada Raja Suddhodana. Setelah memeriksa bayi pangeran, Asita menemukan tanda-tanda yang menunjukan bahwa sang pangeran akan menjadi seorang raja besar atau pemimpin spiritual berpengaruh. Tanda-tanda yang dilihat Asita pada sang pangeran adalah pertanda makhluk yang telah mempraktikkan banyak kebajikan pada banyak kehidupan terdahulu.

Dalam tradisi Mahayana, makhluk tercerahkan dipercaya memiliki tiga jenis tubuh: Dharmakaya (tubuh kebenaran), Sambhogakaya (tubuh kenikmatan), dan Nirmanakaya (tubuh emanasi). Tubuh Dharmakaya tidak dapat dipersepsikan, sementara Sambhogakaya dan Nirmanakaya bisa dipersepsikan. Disebutkan bahwa kedua jenis tubuh ini memiliki 112 tanda fisik dan karakteristik sang Buddha. Tanda fisik ini kemudian dibagi lagi menjadi dua kategori: 32 tanda utama dan 80 tanda minor.

Konon, tanda-tanda fisik ini hanya tampak dalam tubuh seseorang yang menjadi teladan karena mereka menggambarkan kualitas dalam diri orang tersebut. Lebih jauh lagi, tanda-tanda ini juga menunjukan bahwa orang atau makhluk ini bisa meninggalkan bibit atau jejak di pikiran makhluk lain untuk mencapai kualitas yang sama. Ketika kita belajar dan mengerti makna dari tanda-tanda fisik ini, kita akan menyadari bahwa mereka mengingatkan kita akan kualitas yang harus kita terapkan dalam kehidupan sehari-hari di jalan menuju kesempurnaan spiritual. Selain mengajarkan Dharma secara verbal, sang Buddha juga menggunakan tubuhnya sebagai peta menuju pencerahan itu sendiri.

Dalam sejarah Buddhisme, para cendekia memiliki pendapat yang berbeda-beda mengenai 32 tanda fisik utama dari makhluk tercerahkan. Mereka terbagi dalam dua kelompok: mereka yang percaya bahwa atribut fisik ini nyata, dan mereka yang berpendapat tanda fisik ini hanya bersifat simbolis saja.

 

Tanda-Tanda Fisik

Sekelompok cendekia menyatakan bahwa 32 tanda utama adalah atribut fisik nyata dari tubuh sang Buddha.

Akan tetapi, sang Buddha dapat bermanifestasi dalam bentuk apapun yang diperlukan sesuai dengan kebutuhan makhluk hidup. Karenanya, 32 tanda fisik ini tidak selalu dapat terlihat dengan mudah. Menurut catatan sejarah, Buddha Shakyamuni mengambil rupa seorang yang telah meninggalkan hal-hal duniawi, dengan kepala tanpa rambut, jubah yang terbuat dari kain kasar yang disambung jahitan, dan yang sudah meninggalkan kenikmatan duniawi.

Hal ini juga dideskripsikan dalam sumber-sumber seperti Sutra Samannaphala yang menceritakan kisah Raja Ajatashatru yang tidak bisa mengidentifikasi sang Buddha diantara kumpulan biksu. Seperti itu juga di Sutra Upakkilesa, Buddha Shakyamuni dicegah memasuki tempat kediamannya karena penjaga tempat tersebut tidak mengenali beliau.

Tetapi bukan berarti sang Buddha tidak memiliki 32 tanda utama, karena dalam penjelasan Sutra Dhatu Vibhanga, tertulis bahwa sang Buddha menyembunyikan tanda-tanda fisik utamanya dalam pertemuan dengan Pukkusati, yang baru mengenali sang Buddha ketika mendengar suaranya pada saat mengajar.

Fakta bahwa makhluk biasa tidak bisa mengenali sang Buddha tidaklah mengejutkan karena tanda fisik ini hanya bisa dilihat secara keseluruhan oleh makhluk tercerahkan lainnya.

 

Mitos Simbolisme

Sementara kelompok cendekia yang lain berpendapat bahwa tanda fisik ini hanyalah simbol yang terkait dengan pencapaian spiritual seorang Bodhisattva. Mereka adalah tanda khas karma seseorang yang telah mempraktikkan Dharma dan menumbuhkembangkan kebajikan sejak kehidupan yang tak terhingga banyaknya.

Dalam Abhisamayalamkara, seperti yang diajarkan oleh Bodhisattva Maitreya dan dicatat oleh muridnya Asanga, dikatakan bahwa pahala yang diperlukan untuk menghasilkan sehelai rambut di tubuh sang Buddha setara dengan sepuluh kali lipat karma yang dikumpulkan oleh sravaka atau arhat, pratyekabuddha atau ia yang mencapai kesadaran dalam isolasi, dan semua makhluk hidup. Kumpulan dari seratus kali pahala yang dihasilkan menyebabkan munculnya 80 tanda minor atau kecil. Melalui kumpulan karma dari 80 tanda minor inilah 32 tanda utama muncul. Karenanya, menurut penjelasan ini, 32 tanda utama pada tubuh tidak perlu terlihat secara fisik pada tubuh.

Maitreya Buddha, the future Buddha to come.

Buddha Maitreya, Buddha Masa Depan.

 

Sumber Kitab Suci

Sumber terawal yang menyebutkan mengenai 32 tanda utama sang Buddha berasal dari sutra tradisi Theravada Sutta Lakkhana Sutta, Sutta Mahapadana, Sutta Brahmayu dan Mahavastu. Semua sutra ini memuat deskripsi detil dari 32 tanda utama. Hal ini diikuti dengan ramalan bahwa seseorang yang lahir dengan tanda-tanda ini akan menjadi Penguasa Universal Pemutar-Roda atau orang yang meninggalkan keduniawian dan menjadi yang tersadarkan penuh, sang Buddha.

Nagarjuna

Nagarjuna

Seperti Asita yang meramalkan bahwa Pangeran Siddharta akan menjadi seorang Buddha dengan mengamati tanda-tanda pada tubuh sang bayi, para pertapa yang ahli dalam membaca tanda-tanda ini juga memeriksa Pangeran Vipassi (Skt. Vipaśyin), Buddha yang muncul 91 kalpa yang lalu. Kisah ini tercatat dalam Sutta Mahapadana dimana diceritakan bahwa Pangeran Vipassi kemudian mencapai pencerahan dan menjadi Buddha.

Dalam tradisi Mahayana, ada dua kelompok yang menjelaskan tanda-tanda fisik ini. Satu kelompok mengacu pada Sutra Prajñaparamita (Kebijaksanaan Sempurna). Seperti yang disebutkan sebelumnya Abhisamayalamkara mengikuti tradisi ini, begitu juga dengan teks yang berjudul Ratnavali yang ditulis oleh Arya Nagarjuna. Kelompok kedua mengacu pada Sutra Ratnadarika dan Uttaratantra.

Dalam karya Vasubandhu yang berjudul Abhidharmakosa, dikatakan bahwa ketika seorang praktisi dalam jalan Bodhisattva mulai mengumpulkan karma yang terkait dengan munculnya tanda-tanda ini, beliau ‘ditakdirkan’ untuk lahir di alam yang baik, dengan indera yang lengkap dan dapat mengingat kehidupannya yang terdahulu.

 

Tubuh Sang Buddha

Daripada memeriksa apakah 32 tanda fisik utama ini bersifat fisik atau simbolis, lebih baik menggunakan waktu kita untuk mempelajari makna dari setiap tanda ini dan kaitannya dengan pertumbuhan spiritual kita.

Bagi praktisi, penting untuk mengerti makna dari 32 tanda utama ini karena mereka mengajarkan bagaimana implikasi tindakan kita dengan pertumbuhan spiritual dan keadaan kita di masa depan terlepas dari apakah kita tetap menjadi makhluk biasa atau mencapai kondisi tercerahkan. Karenanya, kita harus mencoba mengerti kualitas dasar yang berhubungan dengan tanda-tanda ini dengan motivasi untuk menumbuhkan kualitas ini melalui praktik Dharma kita.

 

Catatan: Makna 32 tanda ini bervariasi tergantung tradisi penjelasan tersebut berasal. Daftar di bawah adalah perpaduan dari versi Theravada, Mahayana dan Vajrayana. Dua sumber utama yang digunakan adalah Sutra Lalitavistara dan karya tulis Lama Tsongkhapa yang berjudul Legshe Sertreng atau juga dikenal dengan Mala Emas dari Penjelasan Sempurna.

 

32 Tanda Utama

 

#1: Telapak Kaki yang Rata

32Marks006

Deskripsi: Konon, sang Buddha memiliki telapak kaki yang halus dan rata. Jadi, setiap beliau berjalan, jejak kakinya tertanam di lantai. Menurut deskripsi, kakinya lebar, bulat, halus dan kukuh seperti seekor kura-kura.

Sebab: Sang Buddha memegang sumpahnya selama banyak kehidupan dan teguh pada tekad untuk tidak membunuh.

Ajaran: Tidak diragukan lagi. Teguh dalam memegang sumpah dan komitmen adalah fondasi untuk membangun praktik kita. Lama Tsongkhapa mengajarkan bahwa sumpah ini sesuai dengan Tiga Latihan Tingkat Tinggi: disiplin, konsentrasi dan kebijaksanaan. Terkait dengan hal ini, Lama Tsongkhapa berkata bahwa kita harus mengambil sumpah berikut dan memegangnya dengan teguh:

  1. Sumpah Pratimoksha: Membawa diri kita pada kebebasan. Sumpah-sumpah ini termasuk dalam sumpah bagi orang awam dan anggota monastik.
  2. Sumpah Dhyana-samvara: Membawa pada kondisi mental dan meditasi yang stabil. Sumpah ini mencegah pikiran kita berkelana, tumpul atau kegirangan pada saat kita bermeditasi.
  3. Sumpah Anashrava-samvara: Membawa pada kondisi kebijaksanaan tak tercela, yaitu kesadaran akan sunyata. Sumpah-sumpah ini membuat kita dapat mengendalikan emosi dan sikap negatif.

 

#2: Ribuan Roda Bergerigi

32Marks005

Deskripsi: Telapang tangan dan kaki sang Buddha ditandai dengan ribuan roda Dharma bergerigi. Dalam beberapa tradisi, roda ini memiliki delapan gerigi yang melambangkan Delapan Jalan Mulia. Roda ini mungkin diiringi dengan tanda swastika juga.

Sebab: Sang Buddha memutar roda Dharma, mengeluarkan perkataan tercerahkan. Konon, dalam Abhisamayalamkara dikisahkan bahwa “tanda roda … memberikan keberanian pada manusia yang takut akan roda samsara.” Sang Buddha mampu dan bersedia memberikan perlindungannya kepada mereka yang kewalahan dengan karma negatif. Beliau tidak pernah menolak mereka yang membutuhkan bantuan, bahkan bila ada yang menganggap orang tersebut tidak patut dibantu. Beliau juga menyambut dan menemani guru spiritualnya kemanapun beliau pergi.

Ajaran: Kita harus selalu menganut sikap tidak mementingkan diri sendiri ketika melayani orang lain, khususnya mereka yang menderita dan kesakitan baik secara fisik dan mental. Cara terbaik untuk melayani orang lain adalah dengan mengajarkan Dharma. Sang Buddha berkata bahwa hadiah terbaik adalah Dharma. Kita harus selalu taat pada prinsip pengabdian pada guru, seperti yang dijelaskan pada berbagai teks seperti karya Ashvagosha, 50 Bait Pengabdian Pada Guru.

 

#3: Tumit yang Menonjol

Deskripsi: Tumit kaki sang Buddha berbentuk oval dan tidak bulat. Tumit ini menonjol sehingga dapat memberikan kekuatan tambahan dan menyebarkan berat pada kaki.

Sebab: Sang Buddha selalu berusaha untuk menolong makhluk lain, menyelamatkan hidup mereka dan membuat mereka merasa nyaman.

Ajaran: Kita harus menumbuhkembangkan kasih untuk semua makhluk termasuk melindungi mereka dari mara bahaya, mencegah mereka mengalami celaka dan membuat hidup mereka nyaman dan bebas dari halangan.

Ajaran: Kita tidak boleh membunuh makhluk hidup termasuk membunuh hewan untuk dikonsumsi. Kita harus mencoba menyelamatkan nyawa mereka semampu kita.

 

#5: Kulit yang Mulus

#6: Jaringan Cahaya

32Marks008

Deskripsi: Sang Buddha memiliki jaringan cahaya yang menghubungkan jari tangan dan kakinya. Cahaya ini tampak seperti membran tipis antara jari kaki dan jari tangan. Dalam beberapa penjelasan, jaring ini berhubungan seperti sebuah net.

Sebab: Sang Buddha telah menyempurnakan praktik “Empat Cara Mengumpulkan Murid.” Dengan melakukan hal ini, beliau membawa pengaruh positif pada orang lain dan membantu mereka dalam jalan spiritual.

Ajaran: Kita harus mempraktikkan “empat sikap menarik” ini yang merupakan metode yang digunakan Bodhisattva untuk mengumpulkan murid. Ini adalah kualitas seorang Bodhisattva yang menarik makhuk pada Dharma. Dari empat sikap ini, dua sikap berhubungan dengan kemurahan hati dan dua sikap lainnya berhubungan dengan ajaran. Keempat kualitas ini adalah:

  1. Memberi apa yang dibutuhkan dengan murah hati,
  2. Berbicara dengan cara menyenangkan ketika melakukan hal ini,
  3. Mengajarkan Dharma dan jalan yang benar, dan
  4. Menjadi contoh baik dengan mempraktikkan apa yang diajarkan.

 

#7: Bagian Tubuh yang Tidak Mencolok

Deskripsi: Beberapa bagian dari tubuh sang Buddha tidak mencolok. Satu cara untuk membayangkan hal ini adalah dengan memikirkan seekor kuda dengan pergelangan kaki yang mencolok. Akan tetapi, siku, lutut dan pergelangan kaki sang Buddha tidak mencolok.

Sebab: Sang Buddha mempraktikkan kerendahan hati pandangan yang murni. Beliau juga mempraktikkan Enam Kesempurnaan (Paramita), yang juga dikenal sebagai Jalan Bodhisattva guna memenuhi janji mencapai pencerahan demi semua makhluk.

Ajaran: Dalam kehidupan sehari-hari, kita harus mempraktikkan rendah hati yang merupakan penawar kesombongan, salah satu dari lima racun. Dalam tradisi Vajrayana, dikatakan bahwa kerendahan hati adalah pintu gerbang untuk mendapatkan berbagai kekuatan luar biasa (siddhi). Kita juga harus menumbuhkembangkan Enam Kesempurnaan untuk mengembangkan Bodhicitta dan kebijaksanaan. Enam Kesempurnaan ini adalah: (i) kemurahan hati, (ii) disiplin moral, (iii) kesabaran, (iv) usaha dengan sukacita, (v) konsentrasi, dan (vi) kebijaksanaan.

Deskripsi: Organ privat sang Buddha tersembunyi, seperti seekor kuda dan tidak dapat terlihat. Makna dibaliknya adalah organ yang terselubung tidak bisa menyinggung orang lain walaupun tidak disengaja.

Close-up on head buddha statue, soft focus.

Tidak mungkin mengukur ushnisha yang merupakan tanda superior dari sang Buddha dan merupakan tanda yang paling sulit didapat.

Sebab: Sang Buddha selalu bersujud di hadapan para guru spiritualnya dan membayangkan mereka duduk di pucuk kepalanya. Selain itu, selama kehidupan yang tak terhingga banyaknya, sang Buddha mengunjungi banyak kuil dan tempat suci dan melakukan praktik spiritual di tempat-tempat ini.

Ajaran: Sang guru adalah makhluk tertinggi karena beliau menunjukkan jalan menuju pencerahan. Karenanya, kita harus selalu menganggap guru kita sebagai ladang pahala tertinggi, dan memperlakukan beliau dengan sangat hormat. Kita harus selalu bersujud kepada guru kita dan membayangkan beliau di pucuk kepala kita. Mengikuti instruksi sang guru adalah mempraktikkan Dharma.

 

Sebuah Kunci Menuju Pencerahan

32Marks018

Seringkali, kita membayangkan sang Buddha sebagai makhluk supernatural, manusia superior yang kita kagumi, tetapi kita tidak menganggap diri bisa menjadi seperti beliau. Dengan mempelajari 32 tanda fisik sang Buddha, kita memulai sebuah perjalanan Dharma dimana kita melihat sang Buddha dari sudut pandang yang berbeda, yaitu, sebagai makhluk biasa yang menerapkan Dharma yang diajarkannya sendiri selama kalpa yang tak terhingga banyaknya.

Kita mengetahui dari belajar Dharma bahwa setiap bentuk Buddha mengandung pelajaran Dharma, dan tanda-tanda fisik sang Buddha adalah ajaran tertinggi mengenai praktik Dharma dan hasil dari praktik ini. Dengan mengerti makna dari tanda-tanda fisik ini, kita dapat mengerti apa yang harus kita terapkan untuk mencapai tingkat tersebut, dan pada saat yang sama bagaimana kita harus mengaplikasikan ajaran ini. Daripada berdebat apakah tanda-tanda ini benar-benar nyata pada fisik sang Buddha atau hanya merupakan simbol saja, kita harus berfokus pada makna dari tanda-tanda ini bagi praktik Dharma kita. Apapun yang dilakukan sang Buddha setelah mencapai pencerahan dan semua Dharma yang diajarkan beliau adalah demi evolusi spiritual kita sampai pada kondisi yang sama. Karenanya, bisa dikatakan bahwa bentuk suci sang Buddha adalah salah satu ajarannya, atau esensinya, peta menuju kebebasan.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, whose activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism . Lama Tsongkhapa was hailed as the second Buddha by contemporary Buddhist masters of his time. Famous for reviving Buddhism in Tibet and revered for elevating the Dharma to all its present glory. Hence having a 12 ft Lama Tsongkhapa Statue at new Kechara Gompa (Prayer Hall) is indeed a blessing. Its truly beautiful. Merely by looking at it is a blessing .
    Thank you Rinpoche and team effort making it possible.

    The Pemayangtse Monastery is a Buddhist monastery, near Pelling in the northeastern Sikkim. The monastery is about 375 year old and is one of the oldest and premier monasteries of Sikkim. Its also the most famous monastery in Sikkim and one of the most important monastery belonging to the Nyingma order of Tibetan Buddhism. Pemayangtse monastery was founded around 1647-48 recording to history. Well the Monastery is part of Buddhist religious pilgrimage circuit built with scenic backdrop of snow-capped mountains on two sides. Where many locals and tourists will travel to Sikkim yearly . Over the centuries, the monastery has withstood earthquakes and has gone through series of refurbishments and preservation efforts. Interesting story behind this monastery, would love to travel to Sikkim again .
    Lieutenant Colonel Laurence Austine Waddell was a British explorer, collector in Tibet, and author, travelling throughout India,Sikkim and areas on the borders of Nepal and Tibet. He wrote about the Tibetan Buddhist religious practices from what he observed while there. In Sikkim he made a stunning discovery, that Dorje Shugden existence in the Nyingma monastery as written in his book. Hence it has proven that Dorje Shugden been worshipped not only in Gelug lineage but as well in the Nyingma centuries ago too. Its not a minority practice afterall .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this interesting sharing.

    Revisit this interesting post of a great Master
    Buton Rinchen Drup, was a 14th-century Sakya master and Tibetan Buddhist leader. He is widely considered to be one of Tibet’s greatest scholars, historians, translators, and writers. He has been the role model for many of Tibet’s greatest masters over the centuries, including the present Dalai Lama. His legacy also included the compilation of 500 years’ worth of translated teachings into the encyclopedic Kangyur and Tangyur collections. This monumental effort helped to preserve and propagate the teachings throughout Tibet. These collections have become well known by all of the schools of Buddhism in Tibet, and continue to this day. He truly was one of the brightest lights of Tibetan Buddhism.
    Throughout his life, Buton Rinchen Drup has continued to serve humanity and the Dharma. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

Toyuq, an Islamic pilgrimage center, nestles at the base of the Flaming Mountains. Here there are many mosques, both medieval and modern ones been built over the years. The first Uighur ruler had converted to Islam, and shrines was then built in the locality honouring the ruler. There was a story behind the legendary Seven Sleepers of Ephesus where there was a group of youths hiding inside a cave, at the Flaming mountains outside the city of Ephesus around 250 AD. Buildings can be seen practically everywhere with pierced walls that is used for drying grapes to make raisins. Raisins and melons are most known products of the region.

    The Fourth Takpu, Pema Vajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub was a highly attained lama. He was also commonly known as Takpu Dorje Chang who had many authentic visions of the Buddhas. He had even received directly teachings from Buddhas. He had received direct visions of Tara herself. Tagpu Pemavajra had travelled to Tushita, the heavenly abode of Lama Tsongkhapa as requested by Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche where he received the complete cycle of teachings on Dorje Shugden. Tagpu Pemavajra was one such lama who was attained enough to receive these teachings for the benefit of others. He was instrumental in the development of the Dorje Shugden practice within the Gelug tradition. Wow he was able to astral travel to various pure lands and receive special teachings. Interesting biography of a great lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Amazing discovery a 2,000 year old Indian Buddhist document as it tell us how Buddhism took root in India. It’s the oldest Buddhist manuscripts yet discovered, dating from about the 1st century BCE to 3rd century CE. Found in the north-western outskirts of the Indian subcontinent an ancient Buddhist kindgom. The document, written on a birch bark scroll offers rare insight into the early history of Buddhism. Surviving manuscripts are rare only a few hundred are known to still exist. Understanding the history of the region helps us realize the significance of this scroll.

Manjushree Park, one of most natural, historic attactive park within Kathmandu valley. Fantastic well managed picnic spot one should visit and not to be missed when one is at Kathmandu Nepal. Visible 33 ft. high black stone carved Manjushree statue .Manjushri is one of the most important iconic figures in Mahayana Buddhism. The powerful image representing ever-present wisdom plus the sword of awareness to cut off all delusion. An interesting story behind this Kathmandu Valley where mythology and geology intertwine.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    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
