昆氏家族是西藏古老的贵族之一。自11世纪开始,昆氏家族与萨迦传承便有着密不可分的关系,而家族中地位最崇高的是他们清净传承的法王。

公元八世纪,昆氏家族最早期的成员之一的昆·鲁易旺波在伟大的印度圣者莲花生大士座下学习佛法。当时候,昆·鲁易旺波是藏地首七个僧伽的其中一员。后在1073年,昆氏家族的另一位成员昆·衮却杰布在藏地创建萨迦寺。今日的昆氏家族也都是昆·衮却杰布的后裔,于是这个家传世系从建寺的那时起从未中断

由昆氏家族创立的萨迦派就此成了藏传佛教四大宗派之一。萨迦派地位最崇高者被称作“萨迦崔津”,或“萨迦法座持有人”。按照此宗派的特殊传统,萨迦法座的继承在昆氏家族间由父传子。在18世纪年间,昆氏家族分成两宫,即“卓玛颇章”(度母宫)及“彭措颇章”(圆满宫),两宫法王交替坐上萨迦最高法座。

第30任萨迦法王索南仁钦

按历史,萨迦派首先奉多杰雄登为佛教护法神。根据萨迦及格鲁的记载,是第30任萨迦法王索南仁钦奉多杰雄登为萨迦派护法之一,随后再将多杰雄登护法、金甲衣护法及紫玛护法奉为“三王护法”。三王护法的修持在萨迦派中广为盛行。
 
在萨迦派的传承中,多杰雄登的坐骑为马,此种法相是萨迦派独有的。这种法相的多杰雄登被称作“多杰雄登达那”,意指骑着黑马的多杰雄登。他右手朝天持棒,摆在心间的左手握着一颗心;他身穿僧人的三衣,头戴金色圆顶帽,身骑黑马。

萨迦三王护法就包括了金甲衣护法、多杰雄登及紫玛护法(或称“喀切玛波”)。这三大护法的修持在格鲁派中也广为盛行。为了亲近及护持众生,他们以世间相示现,但实为出世间护法。

20世纪末,或是基于政治因素,随着萨迦传承的影响力减弱,三王护法在藏、印两地的萨迦寺院也变得不那么盛行了。即便如此,这也无损萨迦派中有六位法王制定这些修持的事实。这六位法王绝非凡人,因此三王护法圆满无误的修持也是错不了的。迄今,萨迦派独有的“多杰雄登达那”的描写仍能在古老的艺术作品中找到。若追溯起源,那些艺术作品早在19世纪就出现。而且,在世界各地的博物馆中可见“多杰雄登达那”出现在数件萨迦派古老作画里。那些作画源自20世纪的上半时期。如今在藏地,仍有供奉并修持多杰雄登的萨迦派寺院。

多杰雄登达那

从仪轨的层面来看,萨迦派中有好几个多杰雄登的著作,它们大多都在超过两百年前就已存在。除此,萨迦的仪轨文中也有祈请多杰雄登的部分,例如奉多杰雄登为萨迦派护法的第三十任萨迦法王索南仁钦所撰写的《祈请遣除违缘障难》。索南仁钦的儿子——第31任萨迦法王贡噶罗卓在其自传中证实了他父亲撰写过此祈请文。此外,他也在自传中提及父亲给自己传授多杰雄登的修持。

虽是索南仁钦将“多杰雄登达那”奉为萨迦派佛教护法并推广之,但撰写多杰雄登四化身之祈愿文、使多杰雄登修持主流化的人是其子——贡噶罗卓。后来的萨迦法王们都表示贡噶罗卓本身就是多杰雄登的化身。

第31任萨迦法王贡噶罗卓为多杰雄登撰写多个祈愿文

贡噶罗卓也从父亲那里接获许多口传和灌顶,其中就包括好几个长寿灌顶、龙树菩萨传承的密集金刚灌顶、文殊菩萨心咒口传,以及百部仪轨集与萨迦派文集的口传。除此,他也在第30任俄·堪千——强巴索南培桑(1689-1749)、第33任俄·堪千——南喀桑珠(1696-1754)、第34任俄·堪千——培登措琼(1702-1760)座下学法。从这些大师处,他获得道果密法,以及萨迦派的中心修持——显密二法相融的喜金刚法。此法源自印度大成就者毗瓦巴。

在父亲圆寂后,贡噶罗卓继承萨迦最高法座之位,于1741年成为第31任萨迦法王。就在那个时候,贡噶罗卓也向摩钦贡噶伦珠(1654-1728)求法。摩钦贡噶伦珠也是另一位重要的萨迦传承持有人,更是那洛喀措修持法门的传承上师之一。这个传承从此传到格鲁传承中。摩钦贡噶伦珠是“俄·艾旺却丹寺”(后通称“俄尔寺”)第37任住持——内萨贡噶勒百迥乃(或称“内萨多杰羌”,1704-1760)的心子。

Morchen Kunga Lhundrub

摩钦贡噶伦珠

在其传记中,贡噶罗卓写道内萨多杰羌也专为多杰雄登写了好一些重要的文献。因此,贡噶罗卓对摩钦贡噶伦珠修持多杰雄登是知情的。贡噶罗卓在世期间,他为多杰雄登撰写了至今仍被沿用的礼赞文及酬供文,祈请多杰雄登的加持。由此我们得知,在萨迦传承中,多杰雄登被视作出世间护法,其修持备受重视。这一点获得第39任萨迦法王扎苏钦列仁钦(1871-1936)的证实,他写道“那名为朵杰的在解脱之道上并没有错,其体性为大悲主”。以此为例,扎苏钦列仁钦凸显出多杰雄登体性与观世音菩萨无异,是圆满的觉者。

除此之外,传记中也提及贡噶罗卓是首个推广多杰雄登五部,以及多杰雄登寂静相主尊的人。寂静相主尊名为“杜津”,意为持律主。

在鲁宾艺术博物馆中有一幅画有多杰雄登五部的唐卡。唐卡上有着针对每一个化身非常详细及清晰的注释。除此,画上也画有贡噶罗卓的孙子——第33任萨迦法王贝玛敦都旺秋(1792-1853),他被画在多杰雄登之上。这幅唐卡极有可能在贝玛敦都旺秋在位期间画好。多杰雄登在这幅唐卡上居最为首要的位置,他被画在唐卡的正中央,骑坐在狮座上,手持金刚棒及套索,其四化身也出现在唐卡上——身骑巨象的平息之主(西泽嘉钦);身骑马匹的增益之主(金泽嘉钦);身骑玉龙的怀摄之主(旺泽嘉钦),以及身骑大鹏鸟的大威猛之主(札泽嘉钦)。

贡噶罗卓的传记中清楚描述当时候萨迦派修持多杰雄登的景况。从中我们看到多杰雄登的修持盛行于19世纪初,并且广被藏传佛教其他宗派所接受。这样的描述与斯坦·穆弗尔德在其书《喜马拉雅的对话:尼泊尔的西藏喇嘛和古绒萨满》中的观点不谋而合——多杰雄登的法门实际上在19世纪初广被修持。贡噶罗卓传记中记载的关于多杰雄登的历史,与穆弗尔德在其书中所提及的景况有着非常显著的共同点。

穆弗尔德解释,在现代的“嘉逊朵”,一个遵循宁玛教诲的村落的人们也供奉多杰雄登。在那个时候,当地每一户藏人家中的佛龛都能看到莲花生大士和多杰雄登的法相被供在一起。事实上,许多户人家的一家之主都说他们的佛龛主要都用以供奉多杰雄登。

Mahasiddha Pema Dudul Wangchuk

大成就者贝玛敦都旺秋

“嘉逊朵”村落的人都是莲花生大士及多杰雄登的虔诚信众,他们每日都向这两位觉者做供养。据说每一户人家都会有自家所属宗派的上师所撰写的多杰雄登祈请文,可见多杰雄登的法门也盛行于在家众间。穆弗尔德的调研结果显示每一户人家都奉多杰雄登为护法神,甚至是普遍得成了人们日常中必不可少的其中一部分。

在萨迦派中,近代有六位萨迦法王修持并依止多杰雄登。他们就包括:

  • 第30任萨迦法王索南仁钦(1705-1741)
  • 第31任萨迦法王萨钦贡噶罗卓(1729-1783)
  • 第33任萨迦法王贝玛敦都旺秋(1792-1853)
  • 第35任萨迦法王扎西仁钦(1824-1865)
  • 第37任萨迦法王贡噶宁波(1850-1899)
  • 第39任萨迦法王扎苏钦列仁钦(1871-1936)

第39任萨迦法王扎苏钦列仁钦是一位中坚的多杰雄登修持者,他以在萨迦传承中广弘多杰雄登的修持而闻名。透过研究其家世背景,他甚至证明自己的父亲,第37任萨迦法王贡噶宁波(1850-1899)是多杰雄登的化身。

既然那么多的萨迦最高法座持有人(萨迦法王)都依止多杰雄登或被视作多杰雄登的化身,我们可清楚一点:从萨迦传承的观点而言,多杰雄登的修持极具益处。否则,萨迦法王花那么多时间与精力,为多杰雄登撰写祈愿文或为做表率而投入此修持法门又是为了什么呢?
 
因此我们可以得出结论:多杰雄登的修持法门始于萨迦派,此法广受欢迎、广被修持,甚至其他宗派的人也接受并修持它。从最早的19世纪初开始,萨迦、宁玛及格鲁行者已经接受多杰雄登。那么,我们可以无误地总结出一个极具逻辑的论点:多杰雄登作为一个出世间护法,他具平等心。任何人若供奉他,他都会给予护持及加持。

萨迦传承中的多杰雄登简介

根据我们的传统,每当进行多杰雄登酬供法会时,我们都会先念诵多杰雄登祈请文。在祈请文中,我们祈请多杰雄登从不同地方前来,其中一处就是萨迦的穆穹寺。许多修持者都知道萨迦传承是最先修持多杰雄登的教派。

多杰雄登骑黑马相是萨迦传承中最常见的多杰雄登造像

在本文中,我们将探讨多杰雄登修持在此传承的缘起。嘉杰赤江仁波切在其著作《愉悦如海护法之妙音》中指出,当杜固札巴坚赞崛起成为护法后第一个想起的,就是自己的上师班禅洛桑确吉坚赞(1570-1662年)。杜固札巴坚赞忆念上师恩德,难忘上师给予自己的无数忠告、教诲、传授和灌顶,因此他首先前往日喀则的扎什伦布寺,除了想要向上师敬礼,也希望成为该寺的护法。

刚抵达寺院,他就被手拉手站在扎什伦布寺转经道上的“毗沙门八马主”挡住去路,提示入寺时机尚未成熟。他意识到前往萨迦会更加吉祥,所以凭着前世作为萨迦班智达时跟萨迦派结下的渊源,就立刻动身前往萨迦寺院。到了九世班禅大师时代,他才进入扎什伦布寺。在萨迦,他在当时年仅17岁的第三十任萨迦法王索南仁钦面前显现种种征兆。萨迦法王随即把他奉为萨迦派护法。可见,在多杰雄登修持传开到其他传承之前,萨迦派是第一个修持这位护法的传承。

如前所述,多杰雄登与萨迦派的关系始于几百年前萨迦班智达和布顿仁钦珠的时代。这两位伟大的萨迦大德都是多杰雄登的前世,且都因对佛法和传承做出巨大贡献而享有美誉。

萨迦传承的多杰雄登造像

骑着黑马的多杰雄登

多杰雄登达那

萨迦传承的多杰雄登造像跟今日格鲁传承的多杰雄登造像有着明显差异。萨迦旧传统的多杰雄登主要骑着黑马,因此这个传承也被称为“多杰雄登达那”或“骑着黑马的多杰雄登”。

18世纪中期,第三十一任萨迦法王贡噶罗卓根据父亲第三十任萨迦法王索南仁钦传授的内容,写下了关于这个多杰雄登造像的最初描述。在他的著作《祈请遣除违缘障难》中,他描绘了多杰雄登的身体为黑红色,一面二臂,右手朝天持棒,左手握着一颗心,装在盛满鲜血的骷髅杯中。他头戴圆顶帽,身骑黑马。

法座上的多杰雄登

根据经典记载,萨迦传承中的多杰雄登并非只有骑马相。萨迦派另外也有祈请坐在狮座上之多杰雄登的传统。这个造像跟17世纪中期五世达赖亲见多杰雄登后写下的祈愿文中的形容很相似。

多杰雄登以尊贵的姿势坐在法座上,身边围绕着西泽、金泽、旺泽和札泽四个化身。

在萨迦传承中,有关多杰雄登这种造像的描绘,可见于17世纪末期的大师摩钦贡噶伦珠的著作中。摩钦贡噶伦珠所著的多杰雄登授权奉座文中,写着“安住无畏雄狮宝座上,无量威猛多杰雄登尊。”可见,在萨迦传承的唐卡中,既有端坐狮座,也有身骑黑马的多杰雄登造像。

护法多杰雄登赞

第三十一任萨迦法王贡噶罗卓撰

附第廿五世詹杜固仁波切对礼赞文的注释)

(载录自萨迦遍智阿旺贡噶罗卓所著:持律法王供养仪轨·圆满丰饶所欲回漩)

昔入如来之法教
现大持律比丘相
声闻经藏尽无余
悉皆持护我顶礼

以下的祈愿文祈请多杰雄登的前世——一名护持圣教的伟大比丘。这一偈颂祈请的是多杰雄登的前世——持律主(杜津)扎巴坚赞(1374-1434)。持律主是一名严守清净戒律的比丘,在世时曾立誓将崛起成为一位护持圣教的护法神。一个人唯有听法、修法然后弘法方能持教。由于多杰雄登在前世做到了如前所说的,因此,他具护持圣教的能力。
 
好比说某个人批评圣教,因为你已经内化了教法,所以你能以逻辑回应对方的论述。若能以逻辑来厘清他人的质疑或疑惑,那么你就是在护持圣教。护持圣教最好的方法不是歼灭或打压挑战圣教者,而是我们精通圣教,然后广弘之,使人们心续中的无明皆得以清除。
 
在此偈颂中,我们看到多杰雄登被礼赞为一名精通圣教的比丘,因为他能圆满持教。

 

复至诸佛菩萨前
发心愿入菩提门
授记护法佛子教
无别持护我顶礼

这一偈颂叙述多杰雄登为众生的福祉而持守菩萨戒。他不仅持守菩萨戒,还修菩萨戒、证得菩提心,即一颗证觉成佛、利乐一切众生之心。这都在众佛菩萨的见证下完成。有的人或会争辩,表示持戒不代表不会在实修上造下过失、有所退转。然而,就如此偈颂所说的那样,他应验了预言,在某个时候证觉成佛。这也就意味着其菩提心的生起是真实无误的。

 

庄严密海坛城中
蒙赐灌顶金刚持
受誓守护密续法
浩瀚无别我顶礼

这里的礼赞文提及多杰雄登在前世中所接受过的多个密续教法。密续的修持都建基在显教上,而如先前所说,多杰雄登的前世精通显教,但实际上他也精通密法的修持。由于密法也是圣教的一部分,多杰雄登透过他对显密二法的掌握而圆满护持圣教。多杰雄登眷属中的九明妃扮演着护持密续行者证得修行成就的角色。这九明妃皆是多杰雄登的化身。

 

尤于北域雪山间
纵无佛光直普照
慈悲守佑诸教义
护教之主我顶礼

在此偈颂中多杰雄登被视为一切宗派的护法神。这里并无多杰雄登乃萨迦传承之护法的描述,有的反而是所有佛教宗派之护法的描述。因此,任何一个实修圣教的行者,不管所属哪个宗派,若他们供奉多杰雄登,他都会护持他们。这一点证明了多杰雄登的功德与体性。

 

三藏密续及释论
各授释义传承师
守护彼等兑誓愿
持教战神我顶礼

那些接受清净传承、思维教法、如法实修教法,甚至为了进一步向弟子做解释,以期为人解惑而为教法做注解的伟大上师们都会受到多杰雄登的护持。这些上师就像天上的太阳照射出穿过云层的光芒,多杰雄登必会护持他们。
 
多杰雄登并不会如世间众生那样因为物质的供养,或何人做最精巧的供养而对谁有所偏颇。他反而喜爱那些致力弘法的人。因此,多杰雄登特别亲近那些弘法的上师们。这一点就凸显了多杰雄登不是一般的护法,因为一般的护法不会因为有人弘法而高兴。他们反而更会为人们给他们做丰富的供养和尊重而高兴。
 
从这里我们知道多杰雄登对什么样的人感到非常欢喜:在亲自听闻了教法之后实修之、内化之并作注释然后广弘圣教的上师们。以上不包括任何随便授法的人,这里说的是听闻教法的人以自身实修的经验去授法。
 
由于圣教是一切众生走向灭苦之道的入门,因此多杰雄登在接近这些上师时最愉快。他会倾听用心弘法的上师们并且护持他们。当众生得以脱离痛苦,多杰雄登会特别欢喜,这就告诉你他的体性。这不是世间护法具有的特征。

 

贤智译师君臣众
筹建群寺善业承
僧伽法殿悉守卫
护教主尊我顶礼

这一偈颂说明多杰雄登守护如法修习并且弘法的众上师的遗产。这意味着他不仅守护这些上师所建立的伟大寺院,也一并守护他们所授之法教。这是因为那些教法对众生脱离苦海、证觉成佛非常关键。

 

阿里卫藏多康地
三围四茹三岗俱
众生护佑皈依处
雪域之神我顶礼

旧时的西藏分成三个区域:阿里、卫藏及多康。贡噶罗卓在此偈写道多杰雄登乃整个藏地之主,因此他是整个雪域的护法神。这一点也说明了即便多杰雄登的修持在格鲁派崛起以前(虽一些人将多杰雄登看作是格鲁教派的主要护法),萨迦派的大师已将多杰雄登视作整个雪域的护法神,而非其他的护法神。

 

贤劫诸佛守护尊
歼灭魔军恶力主
时至示现正遍知
如来业成我顶礼

此偈说明多杰雄登于这个时代化现成为一名佛教护法神,护持各个宗派的佛教行者。不仅如此,他还会继续化现以护持如法修行的行者。未来,多杰雄登会以三藐三佛(正遍知)的形式示现。此佛在圣教不住娑婆后转法轮利乐众生。好比佛陀释迦牟尼在法灭后说法,故佛陀释迦牟尼被称作三藐三佛(正遍知)。
 
同样地,多杰雄登也会如佛陀释迦牟尼那样示现、转法轮。有的人或会驳斥这一偈颂凸显了多杰雄登还未成佛,是世间护法。但相反地,此偈颂说明他将示现证觉成佛或示现正遍知,暗指他已是圆满证悟的觉者。因此,多杰雄登未来示现正遍知单纯是为了利乐众生。
 
多杰雄登此时以佛教护法神的形式示现,未来以三藐三佛(正遍知)的形式示现。这清楚地表示他已成佛,但将在未来才以圆满觉者的形式示现。

 

总之三时无有尽
依藉无边三密力
广度轮回迷有情
圆满解脱我顶礼

这一偈颂清楚展现出多杰雄登的证悟体性,因为唯有觉者才能为你指引成佛之道。这不是任何其他众生所具备的能力。多杰雄登为众生找来资源,引导行者找到阐述解脱之道的上师,加持行者,好让他们能接受并了解圣教教法。简而言之,若我们对多杰雄登及其能力生起信心,他能为众生造下证觉成佛的因。

 

虔敬供尊赞颂海
汝心悦生悲慈力
增善平扰事业愿
依法圆满祈愿成

最后的偈颂写道:透过礼赞体性与佛无异的多杰雄登,行者能积累无量的福德资粮。然后行者用所积累的这些福德资粮祈请多杰雄登执行佛教护法所做的事业、去除违缘、给予护佑及赐予修行之顺缘。
 
若我们赞扬一个有我执的人,他们的骄慢心会增长;相反地,若我们赞扬一个无我的人,一个觉者,我们本身的资粮增长。虽然这一偈颂表面上是祈请多杰雄登执行他目前作为一名佛教护法所做的各种事业,但如果我们往深一层看,就能再次确认他的圆满证悟之体性,因为他没有我执。这篇礼赞文清楚地证明了多杰雄登乃非一般的佛教护法,而且是已证觉成佛的觉者。同样地,撰写这些文字的也不是一般的上师。这篇礼赞文出自萨迦派的最高法座持有人——第31任萨迦崔津贡噶罗卓。

附录

萨迦传承古由至今共有42位法座持有人,其中有六位已经确认为多杰雄登修持者。他们为多杰雄登建立护法殿,撰写祈愿文和酬供,并将这项修持传授给弟子们。这六位萨迦法座持有人学识渊博,修行成就也极高,他们将萨迦派的主要修持如萨迦十三金法、道果教诲、喜金刚密续和其他教诲及修持等传给了整个萨迦传承。随后,这些传承教诲也被传授给了目前萨迦派的法座持有人、僧人和伟大的修持者等。

假设有人说这六位萨迦法座持有人修持多杰雄登、为他撰写经典或建立护法殿的做法是错的,那就等于说萨迦法座持有人跟凡人并没有两样,他们同样会犯错,既不博学,也没有崇高的修行成就,因此我们并不该依止他们。若他们只是穿戴锦缎丝绸帽和昂贵袍子,高坐在法座上,我们又何须称他们为传承持有人或大师?

既然如此,时至今日再继续修持已遭“污染”的萨迦传承还有什么意思?他们确然无误不是凡人,修行成就也极高。如果这六位萨迦法王犯下如此严重的错误,那么整个经由他们传续下来的萨迦传承必然已遭污染,也失去了传承加持。如此类推,如果我们今天继续萨迦传承修持,也不会得到传承加持和成就,因为今日的萨迦传承乃是经由那六位传承持有人传续下来的。然而,这并不合理,也不可能,因为他们都是修为极高的大师。

今日人们说,修持多杰雄登者就是破了皈依戒,也破坏了跟佛、法、僧三宝的关系,所以将投生三恶趣,成为畜生、饿鬼或地狱众生。若事实真是如此,这六位萨迦传承持有人必然也已经投生三恶趣。但这是不可能的!许多研究和证据都证实了他们修持多杰雄登,甚至撰写了沿用至今的长篇多杰雄登祈愿文。事实上,这六位萨迦传承持有人都是证量极高的人,也肯定不是凡人。

正由于他们拥有非凡的修行成就,他们必然也能轻易分辨出无形众生中何者为佛、菩萨,何者为具伤害性的邪灵。他们肯定知道多杰雄登并非邪灵,所以才会推广多杰雄登修持,并为他写酬供和祈愿文。他们必然拥有看清多杰雄登本质的神通,不然,也能够凭着智慧和逻辑方式,去辩论和确定多杰雄登的本质。我相信他们两者都做了,也得到了同样的结论,即多杰雄登并非具有伤害性的邪灵。也因为这样,这六位博学的大师才会修持,并在萨迦传承内推广多杰雄登法门。

我本身对伟大的第三十九任萨迦法王扎苏钦列仁钦和另外五位萨迦法座持有人带有巨大的信心和崇高的敬意。我祈求他们给我加持,好让我能成就证悟。当我看到扎苏钦列仁钦的照片时,我觉得自己仿佛曾经见过他,或在过去世曾有幸修持过他的教诲。无论如何,我很自然地就对扎苏钦列仁钦法王生起巨大的信心,就像对其他伟大上师如嘉杰赤江仁波切、嘉杰宋仁波切、嘉杰帕绷喀仁波切、嘉杰顶果钦哲仁波切和其他传承大师们一样。

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    要祈请多杰雄登这位特殊、觉悟和觉醒的天使赐予加持和庇佑,你无需是佛教徒或任何宗教的修行者。他总是没有分别或偏见,充满慈悲和慈爱地帮助一切众生。神圣是没有界限的,圣者会帮助有求于他的任何人。

    以下附上英文、中文和藏文的祈愿文。

    愿你平安,常受庇护和加持。

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    This beautiful painting (thangka) is in Sakya Monastery in Tibet’s protector chapel. It is Dorje Shugden Tanag or Dorje Shugden riding on a black horse. This is the Sakya version of Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is originally Sakya and still practiced in Sakya and came to Gelug and Kagyu practitioners later.

    A Daily Request for Wealth, Peace and Protection

    Composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

    In the heavens there are myriad manifestations of the divine. All those manifestations specifically show us different aspects of divinity in order to be of benefit to all living beings. All the rupakaya forms of the divine have compassion, skillful means and wisdom. We invoke upon them whether we are happy, sad, down, lost, fulfilled, confused, empty, and during the whole range of emotions we constantly experience due to an untrained mind.

    Understanding our nature, Great Wisdom Being Dorje Shugden, therefore all the more so, please hold us close to your bosom as an only child to a parent.

    Though the manifestations of the divine need no offerings and gifts from us, we offer you supreme Manjushri Dorje Shugden a libation of tea, incense and mantras, in order to ask you to bless us, to be a part of our lives, to abide in our dwellings and to give us signs, omens and portents of both good and bad. When the negative arises, quell them immediately. Please increase the positive for my weary and worn mind as I lay my hopes in you.

    When difficulties, problems and confusion arise, we ask you, who is but the culmination of all that is powerful, holy and omniscient to bless myself, family, loved ones, environment and even my pets. May I see wisdom, find hope, and be at peace.

    I request you, O Divine Bhagavān Dorje Shugden, who wears a round dome hat and the three robes of a saffroned bhikshu, who wields a sword of liberty, justice and wisdom and clutches a wish-fulfilling jewel, who rides on a supreme lion of subjugation of all that is negative, to fulfill my wishes. I understand my wishes may not be the best, so I surrender to your wisdom for the outcome though it may not be what I have in mind. Please bless myself and everyone that we may enter into the supreme city of liberation.

    Great Bhagavān Dorje Shugden, I request you sincerely from my heart to be a part of my life, bless my home, and grant me wisdom, solace and comfort, that I might be of service to others without agenda, and that I may focus out onto others and not be fixated on myself, creating more problems for all that I hold dear.

    Bless me to become kinder, wiser, more compassionate, tolerant and very forgiving to all those who hurt and love me. In order to become close to you, Dorje Shugden, we must surrender the banal. We must abandon fixed views, projections and rigidity. Lastly, in my final moment when I leave this plane of existence, only the positive actions I have done will matter as everything and everyone will be left behind. Let me realise this and act upon this now! At this crucial moment, please may I have a vision of yourself, the powerful and merciful Dorje Shugden, to take me to where I may course in the sky to continue my journey of spiritual waxing.

    I offer you saffron-coloured tea and my faith to fulfill my prayers and gain siddhis. By reciting your mantra, may healing, peace, love, long life, protection and perfect view of sunyata arise.

    Mantra of fulfillment, peace and wisdom:

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    (It is good to recite this mantra daily as much as you like or your timing allows.)

    I dedicate this supreme heartfelt prayer to the all-knowing Celestial and Supreme Protector Dorje Shugden, that I may quickly become a being of light, compassion, love and enlightenment.

    Please play the audio included here to follow along with the prayer.

    8 pictures of the Sakya Monastery to share, where Protector temple Mug Chung is located. This is the monastery where Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago by the highest Sakya throneholders and masters. Since then when people are doing Dorje Shugden prayers and pujas, they invoke his holy wisdom presence from Mug Chung Protector Chapel in Sakya Monastery in Tibet.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 asssistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can be harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he be harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    H. E.the 12th Dagom Rinpoche was recognized as reincarnate lama, the by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. He was known for teaching the Buddha Dharma and providing spiritual advice to thousands around the world. He was one of the lamas who openly fought the ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice by the Tibetan leadership. He paid a heavy price for his devotion to his gurus and commitment on the practice of Dorje Shugden. He was well known as a loving prolific teacher, scholar, writer, yogi and a great tantric master. That was before the ban , sadly all his student turned against him as such he moved to Nepal . He worked tirelessly to spread Dharma till he entered parinirvana.
    H E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche is back, with at least 20,000 people in attendance of Tibetans watched as the young reincarnation was enthroned as per tradition. The over respond attendance of the enthronement is an auspicious omen for things to come having a lama taking rebirth inside Tibet. A reincarnation of a great lama is back as proof that those who rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector do not take rebirth in the three lower realms as claims by the Tibetan leadership. Looking at those rare, precious pictures of the grand enthronement paints a thousand words. Thousands came in droves to welcome the young incarnation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

Zaya Pandita spread Tibetan Buddhism to the Oirats, the Khalkha and even the Kalmyk people as far as in Russia. Zaya Pandita developed the Clear Script. He also wrote a biography of the First Khalkha Jetsundampa Zanabazar. Interesting read.

    The Mahabodhi temple is a UNESCO World heritage site, and been one of the 7 wonders of the Buddhist world has attracted hundred thousands of pilgrims yearly. It is the place where Gautama Buddha attained Enlightenment and under the Bodhi Tree. Its sad as it was targeted by terrorist, a series of ten bombs exploded in and around the Mahabodhi Temple complex. That was in 2013, early morning serial explosions rocked the Mahabodhi Temple injuring 2 monks and
    destroying certain parts in the pond of the Mahabodhi Temple. Windows were shattered at one of the buildings, while a wooden door at a small temple was destroyed. Luckily the temple inside was intact. The security of the temple was then tightened after this incident ever since . Some metal detectors and more cops and checkpoints were put in place. Attacks on Buddhists are rare in India, but these unfortunate incident somehow did happen.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Tajikistan is a country in Central Asia surrounded by Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for rugged mountains, popular for hiking and climbing. Sunni Islam is, by far, the most widely practiced religion in Tajikistan. Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. Beliefs are a choice. We have the power to choose our beliefs. Our beliefs become our reality Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. The status of respect for religious freedom eroded during recent years. Government policies reflected a concern about Islamic extremism .Tajikistan is unique in the world because it is illegal for people under age 18 to practice religion publicly, which includes attending mosques. Women are not allowed by the government to enter certain mosques and wearing black hijabs. Shops are not allowed to sell too and women are to wear traditional Tajik colours. Not only that additionally to it, the government places strictly limits on pilgrimage visits. As reportedly they harassed devotees by forcibly shaving their beards which are not allowed. Hundreds of thousands of men even children as young as seven years old in Tajikistan arrested in recent years for wearing a beard. Banning beards and dresses is really odd. It’s the government campaign against the adoption of Islamic cultural practices. Sad human rights within Tajikistan were been violated and basic human rights remains limited . Tajikistan continues to struggle with human rights till today.Interesting read of government’s fear leading to problems further.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thanks for the interesting topic sharing where most people have great interest and
    curiosity about. Whether we choose to believe in the paranormal or not, we all have to realize that there are many strange things that has happened to all of us that are unexplainable.

    To me paranormal activities are considered as something close to religion too because in every single religion they always talk about spirits and etc. It’s whether you believe in the spiritual world or not sometimes it’s eerie and fascinating to read about all the things that go bump in the night.

    I like herbal remedies as they work gently and is not as harmful to the body as the pharmaceutical medication. However, I would say that they are more effective as preventive due to their slow nature.
    I used to hear people say food is the best remedy for sickness prevention, when we have proper intake of food, we can stay healthy for long term.Really a informative article.Thank you very much .

    A Mongolian highly respected lama Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Ngawang Nyima of Drepung Gomang Monastic Institution in South India was truly a great teacher of our time. He was a great teacher of the Buddhist doctrine, preserving all the teachings of Tsongkapa’s golden lineage. He was such a kind and warm lama who had invited our lama to stay in Drepung Gomang Monastery. But Rinpoche turned down as Rinpoche had promised to be at Gaden. Rinpoche was touched by his affection, and has invited Rinpoche at any time come to Drepung and update him always. Before going back to Gaden , he even blessed Rinpoche. Amazingly and beautifully of such a meeting of a highly known lama, teacher and well respected by everyone , Rinpoche met. Merely by listening to the teachings of a GREAT lama from the video is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The White Temple of Thailand also known as Wat Rong Khun, which is outside Chiang Rai city. It is one of the most recognizable temple, attracting thousands of locals and tourist yearly. It is beautiful temple where everything in white colour, even the fishes reared in the ponds also white in colour. Well this temple is very unique as it stands out through the white colour. With the use of pieces of glass in the plaster, looks sparkling in the sun. The white colour signifies the purity of the Buddha, while the glass symbolizes the Buddha’s wisdom and the Dhamma, the Buddhist teachings.
    I have visited this amazing White Temple a few years back. Simply amazing. This bizarre-looking white temple located is the brainchild of Chiang Rai-born visual artist and painter Chalermchai Kositpipat. The temple is filled with Buddhist symbolisms, beautiful layout, architecture, all the way to the ornate reliefs and mirror decorations. Worthy visiting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow what a great day …..the historic first Kalachakra initiation been held publicly in Tibet, China in the last 50 years. For most by H H the 11th Panchen Lama Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu. Many highly attained masters and incarnated lamas and teachers and more than hundred thousand over monks and nuns attended this auspicious event. Looking at those beautiful pictures tells us all. So many of them it’s a blessing for them. With so many attending this event has proves that he is indeed the unmistaken incarnation as he is claimed by some as false and a fake Panchen Lama.
    With Panchen Lama as a spiritual leader, his influence made a huge impact on the Tibetans which is on the rise, this would be wonderful. In no time they might accept Dorje Shugden’s practice. Interesting read and blessing been able to see those beautiful pictures.
    Thank You Pastor David Lai for sharing.

    Arjia Rinpoche, one of the most important religious leaders to escape Tibet since the Dalai Lama fled into exile. A close friend of HH Dalai Lama and 10th Panchen Lama . At the age of two, he was recognized by the 10th Panchen Lama as the reincarnation of the father of Tsongkhapa who is the founder of the Gelug sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Rinpoche has spoken openly about unity and harmony in the community during the 30th Anniversary Commemoration of HH the 10th Panchen Lama’s Maha-Parinirvana. He has advised the Tibetans to stop discriminating against Dorje Shugden practitioners. No one should be discriminated just because of differences basis of their religious and spiritual faiths. Dorje Shugden as made a scapegoat by the Tibetan leadership for too long . Its time someone like Arjia Rinpoche or more people to speck up for the sake of world peace and harmony. Wonderful and simple speech yet clearly he spoke bravely on fulfilling the Panchen Lama’s wishes.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Arjia Rinpoche.

Having migrated there he brought the Chinese team to national victory, winning three Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) championships. Marbury applied for and received a Chinese “green card”, as he been popular inspiring players ,bringing the whole team a positive and fighting spirit to victory. He is the fifth American basketball player to receive a green card in China. After all not easy to apply one as a foreigner . He also earned the nickname Commissar Ma for his role as a mentor to the teammates and younger players while playing in China. Wow…China immortalised Marbury with an arena statue, and got him a postage stamp of him. That’s wonderful, as they appreciate of what he has done for China.

    All religions share a similar message of peace and tolerance despite their differences. In the history of faith, there are so many beautiful and inspiring thoughts about creating peace and harmony among communities. We should help out to the poor or homeless regardless of race and of religion. Those Buddhist monks at Dhammarajika Monastery in Dhaka did a good job, in accord to Buddhist teachings. They gave out foods to the poor Muslims during Ramadan the Muslim fasting months. Looking at the pictures tells all. A wonderful way helping the hundreds poor people in the streets . That’s should be the way , well a rare example of religious harmony . Helping and giving are human strengths and weapons against the many arbitrary and malevolent dark forces that plague human existence.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this 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.
~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

In view of the current situation with the global spread of the novel coronavirus, you are invited to a special prayer session in Kechara Forest Retreat where we will be collectively accumulating a minimum of 25,000 Loma Gyonma mantras, combined with circumambulations and 108 candle offerings each to Loma Gyonma and Dorje Shugden. DATE: Saturday, 15 February 2020 TIME: 3.00pm - 6.30pm VENUE: Wisdom Hall, Kechara Forest Retreat
