致世界各地的朋友:

我想跟大家分享一个关于一位强大护法神——梅塔(མེ་ཐར་)的故事,以及他如何崛起成为一位佛教护法神、如何成为多杰雄登护法坛城的其中一员。梅塔护法在多杰雄登之主要大臣喀切玛波的带领下,执行其护持法教的责任。这位护法神的故事极为精彩,同时也是个悲剧,但无论如何他是一位可以给予行者迅速护助的佛教护法神。众多佛教大师如色贡多杰羌(色贡金刚持)及其子,来自甘丹江孜寺的色贡参夏仁波切(第十四世达赖尊者侍读)都是供奉这位护法的上师。梅塔护法的故事是关于一个无辜的人遭受政治阴谋的逼害和杀害。我请大家仔细阅读并且理解梅塔护法的由来,他的故事非常引人入胜。除此,你也可以在这里下载非常罕有的梅塔护法画像。我也借此机会感谢我的团队,感谢他们为编撰此篇博文所进行的资料搜寻、编写和绘画。

背景

第十三世达赖尊者的时代,有人曾尝试以邪术加害十三世达赖尊者。在尊者二十岁左右的时候,他的其中一位经师——九世第穆仁波切·阿旺洛桑钦列饶杰给他赠了一对丝绸制的靴子。这对丝绸制的靴子是一位九世第穆仁波切不认识的咒师(སྔགས་པ་)赠予他的,然后第穆仁波切再将之转赠十三世达赖尊者。咒师与在家行者虽同是在家修行,但差别就在于二者所持的戒律。由于该对靴子实在贵重,九世第穆仁波切将它供养十三世达赖尊者。

四世第穆仁波切·拉旺丹贝坚赞是五世达赖尊者的弟子,是遭冤屈的九世第穆仁波切的前世。人们都说这幅四世第穆仁波切的唐卡画像跟他非常相似,而且跟传统更为程式化的唐卡风格截然不同。点击放大。

第十三世达赖尊者正式坐床前的1886年至1895年期间,第穆仁波切担任西藏摄政,享“第穆呼图克图”之名。“呼图克图”乃蒙古语,与藏语中的“仁波切”同是高僧大德的称谓。

就在那个时候,乃穹护法的神谕——饶葛钦巴在参拜大昭寺时赤手在吉祥天母像底下释放了活生生的蝎子,然后惊叫说这是不祥的征兆。随后他再通知十三世达赖尊者所住的哲蚌洛色林寺的僧众,告诉他们要提高警惕,做好防护。

同时,十三世达赖尊者欢喜地收下第穆仁波切供养的那一对丝质靴子,然后就在尊者欲穿上那鞋底时,乃穹护法即场降神并对尊者发出警告,说道:“你不能把靴子穿上,靴子里有会伤害你的东西。穿上之前你应该先把靴子剪开查看。尔后,尊者的侍者将靴子剪开,果然发现鞋底下藏有带有邪术的护轮。“噶厦”(西藏政府的藏语音译)随之为杀害十三世达赖尊者的阴谋展开调查,于是追查给尊者供养那对靴子的是何人。

当噶厦得知第穆仁波切正是供养那对丝质靴子之人,他被判谋反罪,随即其封号和权位也遭夺去。除此,噶厦也查封第穆仁波切的拉章,并且下令禁止第穆仁波切未来的转世。噶厦针对九世第穆仁波切的政治手段跟过去逼害杜固札巴坚赞的手段无异。自此,第穆仁波切便无权再担任西藏摄政,为此,噶厦还做了宣布。另一位与第穆仁波切亲近的转世仁波切——瞻对喇嘛也因此受牵连,他被指控下咒伤害十三世达赖尊者。噶厦对他痛下毒手,百般的折磨他,最后甚至残杀他。清白的瞻对喇嘛因遭受如此的残暴的杀害而化现成一个一心想摧毁噶厦,名叫“聂珠”(“聂珠”乃藏语音译)的凶恶邪灵。

后来,噶厦以邀请第穆仁波切到布达拉宫出席一场宗教仪式为托辞,实为将之逮捕、囚禁。第穆仁波切的亲人与丹杰林寺的僧侣也难逃此劫而面对相同的命运。丹杰林寺是拉萨的四大“林”之一,它建于十七世纪,以金刚舞而负盛名。四大“林”的寺主都曾是西藏的摄政,他们会在乘愿归来的年幼达赖尊者续位执政前获选成为摄政。从达赖尊者圆寂直至达赖尊者转世十八岁以前的这段期间,摄政掌握治理西藏之权。丹杰林寺的摄政相较于其他三大“林”——功德林、策墨林、策觉林——的摄政,丹杰林寺的摄政更备受关注,因为丹杰林寺的摄政曾三次任摄政之位。第穆仁波切担任摄政的传统始于第六世第穆仁波切·阿旺绛白德勒嘉措(于1757年至1777年间出任摄政)。除此,第六世第穆仁波切也获清朝乾隆皇帝册封“呼图克图”,并批准他出任西藏摄政。这件历史事件无疑突出汉藏在重大政事之上的紧密互动关系。第七世第穆仁波切则在1811年至1819年间出任摄政,管理西藏政教之事。

九世第穆仁波切的亲人诺布次仁及巴措罗桑最终也被判终身监禁。由于九世第穆仁波切曾是摄政及丹杰林寺的住持,他所接受的刑罚也相对轻。九世第穆仁波切最终被迫关入关房中做终身闭关,而关房就建在丹杰林寺的院子。九世仁波切始终都被软禁在这间关房中直至圆寂。有的人则说九世第穆仁波切遭噶厦特务浸泡在一个巨大的铜水桶里活活淹死。

清朝乾隆皇帝之盖章,册封第六世第穆仁波切为西藏摄政。

只因噶厦(西藏政府)无法找出最初赠送九世第穆仁波切那对靴子的咒师,九世第穆仁波切便成了企图杀害十三世达赖尊者的代罪羔羊。在第穆仁波切的转世传承中,第九世第穆仁波切是一位极为杰出的佛教大师。他不仅是西藏的摄政,也是丹杰林寺的住持,以及十三世达赖尊者的经师,备受僧众的敬仰。

事后噶厦查封丹杰林寺并没收丹杰林寺所有资产,使得丹杰林寺最终失势。寺内的许多僧人和人们也因噶厦对九世第穆仁波切和丹杰林寺的不公对待而感到心灰意冷。

 

清军入侵

1910年,清军入侵拉萨,逼使十三世达赖尊者逃亡。当时,丹杰林寺援助清兵,更成了清兵的其中一个据点。据说那个时候紫玛护法(也被认作是喀切玛波护法)透过丹杰林寺的神谕降神,告诫寺僧要支援清军,抵抗十三世达赖尊者的噶厦。由于第穆仁波切对紫玛护法无比信任,更将紫玛护法奉为本身的护法,他为紫玛护法在丹杰林寺建造了一座护法殿。自那时起,紫玛护法便成了丹杰林寺的护法神。

尽管如此,清军只占领了拉萨一小段时间。拉萨对他们来说是一个陌生的地方,当地的藏军却对拉萨的地势了如指掌。最后,丹杰林寺的僧侣停止接受清军的支援,于是他们很快地就被藏军击败进而关押。

1912年,当清军被驱出拉萨后,噶厦开始对支援清军的藏人进行清算。当时作为清军据点的丹杰林寺首当其冲,于是丹杰林寺自然遭受噶厦的彻底搜查及摧毁的下场。涉及支援清兵的僧人也遭受牢狱之灾,没涉及支援清兵的僧人也被遣去其他寺院。丹杰林寺及降神紫玛护法(喀切玛波)的丹杰林神谕传承也因此而画上句号。

 

梅塔护法的崛起

在九世第穆仁波切时期,丹杰林寺的库主由一位名为“梅塔”的在家人担任。他是第穆仁波切的忠心弟子,对丹杰林寺也是忠心耿耿,护爱有加。虽是一名在家人,但他仍尽其所能实修佛法。他得以在丹杰林寺担任如此要职也就说明了这一点。寺院如此的要职只会交托在一个具格之人的手上,证明他是一个受人尊重之人。

噶厦(西藏政府)对丹杰林寺资产的觊觎和贪婪,以及对丹杰林寺成就的嫉妒,导致梅塔受尽各种折磨。事实上不少人认为第穆仁波切密谋以邪术加害十三世达赖尊者一事,乃噶厦及噶厦高官设下的圈套,因为他们嫉妒第穆仁波切作为前任摄政的地位和影响力,于是布局使第穆仁波切身败名裂,并且将其寺院的资产占为己有。这件事跟杜固扎巴坚赞的遭遇无异,杜固札巴坚赞也因其日益增长的影响力而招来噶厦的嫉妒,最后惹上杀身之祸。

在被关押的期间,梅塔饱受藏军的百般折磨,因为他们一心想找出丹杰林寺多年来所积累的资产如金、银、宝石及其他珍贵物品和圣物,而这些物品却都是维持丹杰林寺所需的资源。尽管饱受身心的折磨,梅塔的上师依止心及对寺院僧众的忠诚是值得让后人所敬佩的。他始终没有让噶厦得逞,不管他们对他做什么,他都死死守护他殊胜上师的珍贵回忆。

噶厦用尽一切办法折磨梅塔,包括活生生剥下梅塔的皮肤,再开膛破肚,然后以利器无数次刺向梅塔。在承受这一切折磨的过程中,梅塔忆念自己的上师和丹杰林寺的护法喀切玛波,充分展现出过人的忠诚和依止心。尽管这样,梅塔仍是在巨大的痛苦中死去,心中难免生起愤恨。如此的死状促使他投生为心有怨恨想报复的凶恶邪灵,因此他给人们造下了不少伤害。他化为邪灵,一心想为自己、上师和寺院鸣冤、平反。

如色贡多杰羌的传记所记录的那样,色贡多杰羌将梅塔降伏后让其归顺佛法,成为圣教之护法神。虽然人们都请色贡多杰羌以回遮仪式降伏梅塔,然而色贡多杰羌只给梅塔佛法开示,即把他给降伏了。色贡多杰羌给梅塔传授关于加害众生恶业的恶果为何,以及培养悲心的开示。由于梅塔心相续中有强烈的佛法印记,生前对自己的上师也非常依止,于是他回心转意,重新诚心信佛,并且愿意立下成为护持圣教的护法神之誓愿。这一点是关键,因为要成为佛教护法神,凶恶、顽固的众生心中必须有此意愿方能成事。

在降伏了梅塔之后,色贡多杰羌将其交托于跟他生前有深厚渊源的喀切玛波护法,此后他就成了多杰雄登坛城的其中一员。梅塔生前作为丹杰林寺的库主,他必然依赖喀切玛波护法,视其为自己的护法神。这让我们看到梅塔即使在死后,他仍对喀切玛波保有信念、信任和依止心。

由于死前遭受巨大的折磨和痛苦,梅塔因心存愤恨而投生成邪灵。他心存愤恨,不是因为他有错,而是因为他是清白的。他以这样的方式出现,是因为他怀着真相,也是因为他对自己上师的依止心。在他饱受折磨的时候,他总算明白为何噶厦以恶劣不堪的手段对付第穆仁波切及丹杰林寺。他看清噶厦的贪婪和嫉妒,也看清他们想占丹杰林寺的资产为己有。他不愿顺应噶厦的贪婪和嫉妒,他选择捍卫自己的上师和寺院在密谋加害十三世达赖尊者这一件事上的清白,承受所有施加在他身上的折磨。

梅塔心中生起愤恨,因为噶厦让他们的贪婪蒙蔽了自己的良心,他们的贪婪还甚至伤害了他的上师和庄严、殊胜的丹杰林寺。这个愤恨使他变成现在这个样子,尽管如此,他内心深处仍是一名佛教行者。因此色贡多杰羌才选择以给他传授佛法来降伏他,而不是以回遮仪式降伏他。梅塔生前为上师和丹杰林寺所做的牺牲和保护,使他有足够的功德崛起成为一名佛教护法神。如今,梅塔再次延续他神圣、纯洁的工作,透过扮演一名佛教护法神的角色实修佛法,利益众生。

1921年,曾经辉煌的丹杰林寺在噶厦的摧毁后变得满目苍夷。

梅塔护法的法相

在梅塔的法相中,由于他是丹杰林寺的库主,于是他身穿藏族俗官的彩色服饰。其头饰以发髻,如古时的西藏俗官那样。梅塔以人面示现,两只尖牙咬着下唇,如 金甲衣护法喀切玛波护法那样。 他右手持长矛,左手持念珠,在血海中骑着蓝色马匹奔驰。1 (下载梅塔护法相,点击此

在梅塔另一个较为忿怒之法相中,他同样以人面示现,黑色长发盘成发髻,咬着下唇的两只尖牙流下人血。另外,其颈部以下的身体部位直见被剥开的皮和红色的血肉。他右手持黑矛刺穿脚踩的尸身之心脏。这一切的底下是一片尸身遍布各方的血海。其左手握血淋淋颅骨制成的念珠,此为捆绑脚下尸身颈项的套索。此外,这串念珠也可用来计算自己猎走了多少个邪恶众生的头颅。

据说每当此尊梅塔护法降神到神谕身上时,其特点是他将扬起神谕装束之一的围裙,似乎在看着自己被剥开的皮和被掏空内脏的肚子。降神时神谕会发出像是被人以利器刺伤的声音,象征梅塔生前被人残杀,后以此相示现的经历。在完成这些动作后神谕才会说话。

色贡多杰羌传记 (泽美仁波切著)

色贡参夏(第二世色贡多杰羌之子)请求嘉杰赤江仁波切为第一世色贡多杰羌撰写传记。由于事务繁忙,嘉杰赤江仁波切请泽美仁波切代为书写。泽美仁波切所撰写的色贡多杰羌传记根本文中明确讲述了他与梅塔的关系。传记第五册,559—562页中,泽美仁波切讲述了色贡多杰羌如何降伏梅塔,以及梅塔如何化身成为护法的由来。请阅读以下译文。

 

汉译

注:

[ ] = 指为了让内容更清晰易懂而附注的资料或句子。

梅塔原为丹杰林寺员工,在总管家尼玛竹察属下工作。他死后化身为鬼。[Gen-la注:泽美仁波切撰写此色贡多杰羌传记时与甘丹颇章关系密切,所以无法写出当年的谋杀事件和梅塔的被害经过]

梅塔死后,前往拉萨郊外的方向,开始藏匿和偷窃。人们知道他偷窃,却无法看到他或他的样子。

有一次,色贡多杰羌在甘丹寺传授时轮金刚灌顶的时候,甘丹洛巴康村的贾色仁波切把梅塔带了过来。梅塔当时以一个男人的形象出现,并说:“除了色贡多杰羌,没有人会把我认出来。”

逐渐地,梅塔跟孜布贝饶巴家庭建立了联系。那时候,梅塔依然十分愤怒。在三度邀请了色贡多杰羌之后,他终于愿意被誓言所约束。

色贡多杰羌第二度拜访孜布贝饶巴家的时候,经过一个名为仲杜达隆岩颇章(Drom Thöd Dar Lung Nyen Gyi Phodrang)的大黑天护法圣地。

那时候,梅塔突然降神在那个家庭(孜布贝饶巴家)的母亲身上。当色贡多杰羌抵达时,梅塔降神于这位母亲身上,说:“我的菩萨上师已经抵达了。”梅塔接着向上师顶礼。色贡多杰羌给予他关于因果业力的教诲和忠告:“你必须对众生慈悲。”结束时,色贡多杰羌说:“停止伤害众生,前往一个名叫仲杜的地方。我已经请求六臂大黑天护法给予你助理的任务。”

色贡多杰羌又说:“前往该地的路途 中,你必须保持慈悲;至于你的食物,就把这碗青稞酒拿去。”接着,色贡多杰羌并不把碗交给梅塔,而是将酒倒了出来。然而,这倒出来的酒一滴都没洒落地上,而是飘在空气中。在场的人无不为此感到惊讶。

梅塔收下了青稞酒,开始前往仲杜。那件事之后,孜布贝饶巴家庭和该地区平静了很长一段时间。

当色贡多杰羌抵达 一座名为德钦藏巴(Dechen Zampa)的桥时,梅塔的灵突然出现,为他献上最上等质量的哈达。那时候,色贡多杰羌正骑在马上。供养哈达之后,梅塔辞去了大黑天护法助理的职位,回到孜布贝饶巴家,给他们制造更多问题。

色贡多杰羌于是回到孜布贝饶巴家,向梅塔解释伤害他人的业报和帮助他人的好处。听了色贡多杰羌的忠告,梅塔十分感动,并发誓再也不会伤害任何人。

自此之后,梅塔就成了护法,人们也为他建了一所护法殿。色贡多杰羌请求墨竹地区的功德主每天都在那所护法殿内向梅塔祈愿。色贡多杰羌也告诉梅塔:“你必须时常帮助他们。”此外,色贡多杰羌也为梅塔撰写了一篇礼赞文。

色贡多杰羌传记(然扎仁波切著)

第二世色贡多杰羌(左)和其前世的儿子色贡参夏(右)。据说,多杰雄登要第一世色贡多杰羌娶一位明妃,并产下了色贡参夏。这张儿子和父亲之转世的合照十分珍贵稀有。

然扎仁波切为泽美仁波切著的色贡多杰羌传记写了评述。在评述中,他对泽美仁波切著作中只略为提及的内容做了进一步的说明,而泽美仁波切著作中写得详细的部分,然扎仁波切的版本中就不再加以强调。在184-191页中,然扎仁波切针对 色贡多杰羌和梅塔的内容做了更详尽的说明。请阅读以下译文。

 

汉译

注:

[ ] = 指为了让内容更清晰易懂而附注的资料或句子。

色贡多杰羌圆寂之前,有一个名为梅塔的邪灵。梅塔的前世[为丹杰林寺的助理/财政]曾投入九次大威德金刚闭关。

在一个名为墨竹的地方,有一个叫孜布贝饶巴的氏族。他们曾三度请求色贡多杰羌前往住处降伏一个名叫梅塔的邪灵。

色贡参夏说,他听说梅塔曾是丹杰林寺的员工,后被藏军残暴杀害。色贡多杰羌的弟子[即色贡参夏]说当梅塔降神于普通人身上时,他会发出“嘶、嘶”[用力吸气]的声音。这显示他拥有被刺多次的印记。他死后化身为凶猛的邪灵。在甘丹寺,一位年轻僧人夜晚阅读经典时,常会看到一个巨大的念珠出现在他眼前,自己转动,还发出“迪、迪”的声音[数念珠的声音]。有些僧人则在阅读经典时,手中的经典被扯脱,并被抛到一边。

同样在甘丹寺,有一位名叫喇嘛拉或丹措丹贝的格西,他[然扎仁波切]无法清楚记得他的名字。在他的格西供养仪式上,就在汤面已经煮熟时,大锅中突然发出“嘶嘶”的 声音,汤面也瞬间化成水。当他拿着香绕行寺院时[供养结束后],格西拉哭了出来[因为对他 而言,那是不详的征兆]。

发生了许多恶兆之后,他们[孜布贝饶巴家族]邀请甘丹寺的一些僧人进行火供来降伏梅塔。僧人当中有一位叫格西阿嘉的仁波切(Geshe Agya Rinpoche),是一位大成就者。在他前往甘丹寺的途中,必须经过一个名为德钦藏巴的桥。就在他过桥前,梅塔供养他一部宗喀巴大师的经典 ,并请求阿嘉仁波切不要进行火供法会。阿嘉仁波切接着继续他的行程,却在德钦(Dechen)地区和贾米(Gyami)地区之间假装坠马,并说:“我不能降伏梅塔”,然后启程返回拉萨。

这之后,他们邀请了嘉杰色贡多杰羌。再一次,当色贡多杰羌即将经过德钦藏巴桥时,梅塔以一个男人的形象出现,供养色贡多杰羌一部宗喀巴大师的经典,并祈求色贡多杰羌不要进行火供法会。

孜布贝饶巴家族的其中一名成员曾三度邀请色贡多杰羌。在发出第二次邀请之后,色贡多杰羌从拉萨出发。在从拉萨前往孜布贝饶巴位于墨竹的家途中,他先拜访了仲杜达隆岩颇章,才继续行程前往孜布贝饶巴家。

那时候,梅塔突然降神在那个家庭的母亲身上。梅塔降神在这位母亲身上,说:“我的菩萨上师已经抵达了。”接着就向上师顶礼。色贡多杰羌为他传授关于因果业力和慈悲的教诲。教诲结束时,色贡多杰羌说:“你必须停止伤害众生,前往仲杜。我已经请求六臂大黑天护法给你安排了助理的任务。在前往该寺院的途中,你必须保持慈悲。”

至于路途中的食物,色贡多杰羌告诉梅塔:“带着这碗青稞酒上路。”然后,他并不把碗交给梅塔,反而将青稞酒倒在地上。然而青稞酒完全没有滴落地面,反而悬在空气中,飘出了室外,一滴都没滴落地上。现场许多人目睹了这个现象,无不感到惊讶。这之后,孜布贝饶巴家平静了很长一段时间。

隔了很长一段时间之后,梅塔再次给他们制造问题。色贡多杰羌当时正在山南地区。他前往孜布贝饶巴家的途中,必须在夜里穿越一座高山。当时天空突然出现一朵巨大乌云,并下起雨来。由于乌云密布,随从和弟子们无法看清楚前方的路,只看得到石块。队伍开始走散,但色贡多杰羌依然继续赶路,仿佛有人拖着马的缰绳在为他引路似的。抵达孜布贝饶巴家之后,色贡多杰羌给予一场关于伤害他人之业报及帮助他人之好处的开示。梅塔深受色贡多杰羌的忠告感动,发誓自己将不会再伤害任何人,他的心也转化成依止佛法的心。

色贡多杰羌建议当地人建立一所护法殿,并每天在那里进行日常祈愿。他还为梅塔撰写了一篇礼赞文。一位名叫喇嘛拉的人问色贡多杰羌:“在路途中,你所有的弟子都走散了,唯独你一个人可以在没有任何障碍的情况下继续行程。这是为什么?”色贡多杰羌回答喇嘛拉说:“是当坚噶瓦纳波(当坚护法/铁匠护法/骑羊护法)引导我。”色贡参夏听说过这件事。

色贡参夏听说在色贡多杰羌第三度降伏梅塔之后,梅塔就发誓不再制造伤害,并辞去大黑天护法[助理]的职务。他接着加入多杰雄登的曼达拉,成为多杰雄登的助理。

梅塔与色贡多杰羌有着密切的关系,也跟色贡参夏有良好的关系。每当色贡多杰羌的年幼转世顽皮时,梅塔就会在夜晚进入色贡参夏的梦里,告诉他年幼的转世做了些什么。那时候,色贡多杰羌住在甘丹和山南,而色贡参夏则住在拉萨。尽管距离遥远,梅塔依然会出现在他梦里。年幼的转世与助理们住在山南。这些助理时常拜访拉萨,向色贡参夏报告年幼转世的近况。然而,往往在他们向色贡参夏报告之前,色贡参夏就已经知道色贡多杰羌的近况。哲蚌嘉格西讲述了这件事。

以下内容由哲蚌嘉格西讲述。色贡参夏说,当色贡多杰羌住在色贡参夏位于拉萨的居所时,一名矮小赤脸的僧尼前来拜访他们,她是梅塔的神谕。她在那里住了好几天,但哲蚌嘉格西却未曾见过她降神。色贡参夏年轻时曾问过梅塔:“你过去如何伤害其他人?”梅塔最初不愿意回答,只是说:“我现在已经停止伤害人了。”后来,他说:“你那么坚持要我告诉你我过去所做过的事,难道你早已经知道了?譬如说,许多人曾经在一些聚会中突然死去,这就是我曾做过的事。在那些聚会中,当人们因娱乐而分心时,我就会去吸取他们脏器的精华。聚会之后,当他们回到家里,就会突然生病死去。要说我伤害他人,就是这个意思。”

色贡参夏担任达赖尊者的侍读时就住在诺布林卡里。他甚至在前往自己的房间之前,就已经感觉到有人指示他去那个房间,还向他打手势。有时候,当色贡参夏跟其他人产生误会时,梅塔会表现得生气。另一些时候, 色贡参夏会发现自己很难找到重要的物件,即使它们就在附近[仿佛视线被遮住了似的]。色贡参夏告诉然扎仁波切:“有时候梅塔会把我的私人物件藏起来,让我无法找到它们,使得我相当尴尬。”

    Beautiful billboard just came up in our hometown of Bentong where Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) in Malaysia is located. All of us in Bentong are warm, simple and very friendly people. Our beautiful billboard depicts Dorje Shugden statue in KFR and Dorje Shugden is a hero (pahlawan) and a powerful being from Tibet. He is highly respected for giving great inspirations and blessings from his life story.~Tsem Rinpoche- See more beautiful pictures- https://bit.ly/2UltNE4

    梅塔护法的故事让我想起多杰雄登坛城另一位成员南喀巴津护法的故事。两者之间的共同点都是他们原本都是善良的人,却含冤而死。死后化身为厉鬼,引起系列问题,但由于本身生前对佛法的付出,他们都很幸运地被高僧发现,加以度化,并把他们收服为佛教护法。这两位护法之所以能够有如此的际遇,并不是偶然的,南喀巴津是一位认真的僧人,而梅塔则是一位拥有强烈上师依止心的弟子,正是因为他们生平所累积的这些功德,才让他们死后有这样的经历。此外,他们的故事也让我们看到,在死亡之际如果心怀嗔恨,就很难会摆脱化身厉鬼的命运,所以平日每一天的修持是极为重要的,因为在死前那一刻,我们未必如同自己以为的那样,能够如此平静淡然地面对死亡,很多时候需要外力的辅助来让我们有一个好的投生,而这正取决于平日累积的功德。

    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

    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.

    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.

    感恩仁波切的开示与分享 !

    读完文章后, 得知梅塔成为护法神前,他是丹杰林寺的库主,后来遭受残忍地杀害,最後成为一位佛教护法神。

    在当时噶厦(西藏地方政府)对丹杰林寺资产的觊觎和贪婪,以及对丹杰林寺成就的嫉妒,导致梅塔受尽各种折磨,包括活生生剥下梅塔的皮肤,再开膛破肚,然后以利器无数次刺向梅塔。但在承受这一切折磨的过程中,梅塔忆念自己的上师和丹杰林寺的护法喀切玛波,充分展现出过人的忠诚和依止心。
    梅塔对上师的依止心以及对寺院僧众的忠诚是值得让后人所敬佩的。
    尊贵的色贡多杰羌给梅塔传授关于加害众生恶业的恶果因缘,以及培养悲心的开示,而且梅塔心相续中有强烈的佛法印记,生前对自己的上师也非常依止,于是他回心转意,重新诚心信佛,并且愿意立下成为护持圣教的护法神之誓愿, 成就了护持佛法成长的梅塔护法神。
    我非常赞叹梅塔护法神对他的上师的那份坚定和坚持。

    感恩合十
    Yeo Kwai Gin

  14. Alice Tay on Dec 1, 2016 at 4:56 pm

    梅塔护法是多杰雄登之主要大臣喀切玛波的其中一个成员。在还未成为护法之前,他是丹杰林寺的库主。后来,西藏政府对丹杰林寺资产的觊觎和贪婪而试图从梅塔身上挖掘出丹杰林寺多年来所积累的一切资产的消息。然而,梅塔对上师的依止心及忠诚于寺院僧众,尽管饱受身心的折磨,他始终没有让他们得逞。由于梅塔心拥有强烈的佛法印记,以及生前非常依止上师再加上色贡多杰羌给他传授关于加害众生恶业的恶果为何,以及培养悲心的开示,这足以使他重新诚心信佛,并且愿意立下誓愿成为佛教的护法神。

    从这个故事中可以看出,要崛起成为一位佛教的护法神必定皈依佛法,相信佛法的教诲以及拥有慈悲心,目的只为了利益众生。

    感谢仁波切分享这位多杰雄登护法坛城的成员之一~梅塔护法,让我们受益无穷。

  15. June Kang on Oct 28, 2016 at 8:15 am

    我发现梅塔护法神的起源和杜固札巴坚赞的故事有很多相似之处,最令人感到不平的是两人都在西藏政府的暴政之下被当局逼害至死,它显示了西藏领导人滥用了权力的模式在不同的世纪里,而今天被称为藏人行政中央却在逼害多杰雄登修行者。

    最让我感动的是梅塔的是被虐待和折磨不是因为任何犯罪,而是因为他忠实于第九世第穆仁波切。梅塔对上师的过人的忠诚和依止心使他有足够的功德崛起成为一名佛教护法神。

    我喜欢的这个故事的另一个方面是色贡多杰羌只给梅塔佛法开示,即把他给降伏了,而不是以回遮仪式降伏他。

    这个故事加强人们看待上师依止心和佛法力量的重要。

  16. Jace Chong on Oct 25, 2016 at 11:30 pm

    感谢詹杜固仁波切与博客团队的努力和写作。这是一部非常有趣的历史故事。

    梅塔在世时对上师无尽依止,枉死后作恶多端,经过色贡多杰羌的循循教诲后誓愿不再伤害众生,并成为喀切马波的眷属之一,这看起来是峰回路转的结局。

    他的枉死过程相当残忍,就算修行再高,身为一位凡人也难免经历这般的折磨而感到愤怒。也许是他在生时造下的善业累积了功德,在色贡多杰羌第二次的劝导后及时忏悔并跟随上师的脚步,利益众生。

    这篇文章让我学习到,造再大的恶业也有机会忏悔并返回正途;这并不意味着我们可以肆无忌惮地随心所欲,而是每个人都有机会成佛。

    Revisit this post again. Thank you Valencia for this vast post of Loed Tsongkhapa’s life story and his achievements . Lama Tsongkhapa is a “Buddha of our times” in the Gelug Vajrayana tradition and as an enlightened being, having the same realizations as all of the Buddhas. He was an emanation of Avalokitesvara , Manjushri , and Vajrapani , hence his practice is so powerful and beneficial. We have to thank our Lama Tsem Rinpoche for bringing this practice to Malaysia. Many great gurus, lamas and teachers has been teaching this very powerful, yet accessible practice across the globe. We are very fortunate and blessed to practice all the teachings. As for me I am still learning ,reading this post had strengthen my belief. Love reciting Migtsema as its very beneficial indeed. Interesting read very profound Lama Tsongkhapa biography.
    Thanks again .

    Interesting as Tsem Rinpoche called it as BIZARRE beings. Well I have not heard of some the names such as chupacabra, Ebu Gogo, Springheel Jack and so forth. Spring-heeled Jack is an entity in English folklore of the Victorian era. Wow ….sound interesting. For decades, Spring-heeled Jack name was equated with the bogeyman. Its as a means of scaring people as some said he was demon who would leap up unnaturally high. Another interesting bizarre beings is shadow people who is a shadowy spiritual beings long been a staple of folklore. Stories of these supernatural entities have spanned centuries and cultures. They are some of the most mysterious entities in the known universe. As reported those who saw the shadowy intruders were scare to death as if they had died in their sleep. The Beast of Bray Road is another scary creature of Elkhorn, Wisconsin. Its a hairy humanoid with canine features standing on two legs and can resemble a bear. All those cryptozoological creatures mentioned in this article were indeed real or just folklore. Whether they do exist in this century , no one be sure. But definitely they do decades ago as recorded. There are many unknown out in the universe.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    No words can describe of us losing our Lama and enlightened Guru, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche. I was deeply saddened to hear about the death of our Lama as just a moment ago last July , we had an audience and met our Lama , which indeed my very first time . Even though its just moment to me its like a long moment which I remembered each and every words of encouragement our Lama told me. Our Lama was such a kind, generous, compassionate gentle soul whom he would do anything to help improve our lives and had made a difference in my life and so many lives. Where lives pass, memories carry on forever. I will cherish the great memories I have with our Lama.
    Throughout Rinpoche’s life, his was a voice for the millions of people. The Parinirvana of H.E. Kyabje Tsem Rinpoche, the world has lost a great Lama, whose steadfast and unflinching determination played a key role in trying to secure the lifting of Dorje Shugden’s ban. Tsem Rinpoche was known for his great compassion, tremendous generosity and extraordinary thoughtfulness. Everything Tsem Rinpoche did was merely to benefit others. May Tsem Rinpoche have a swift reincarnation .
    We will always hold our Lama close in our thoughts.
    Thank you writers team for this wonderful sharing. … beautiful pictures paints a thousand words.

    Glenn Mullin is a world well known Buddhist author, translator, scholar, speaker, lecturer and teacher. He is the author of many books on Tibetan Buddhism, many of which have been translated into a dozen foreign languages. Many of these focus on the lives and works of the early Dalai Lamas. In one of his book A Sacred Legacy of Reincarnation of the Fourteen Dalai Lamas he mentioned that Dorje Shugden was a pervasive practice spreading among the Gelugpa tradition for hundred of years. Many highly attained lamas had been relying on Dorje Shugden and the practice been passed down to thousands in the Gelugpa world. It is not a minor practice after all and in fact Dorje Shugden is a major practice in the world as in history has been proved that the practice is beneficial. Religious freedom should be allow for one who choose what one would pray to. But due to the restriction by the Tibetan leadership , the practice been ban. Politics should not have interfere with religion. May the ban be over soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Pastor Niral for sharing this article. I do come across people would like to highlight or even fight which God or religion is greater or more powerful. What do they want to achieve or have in mind? Of course people would like to believe their God or religion is the best which is totally fine. However, it is not right when they impose their belief on others and start giving negative comments to change our perception when they know nothing about our belief. Ultimately whatever religion or God we believe in , we should be promoting peace, harmony and love. Arguing will not bring positive impact. Respect everyone’s choice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these 28 verses with us.

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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together!
