色拉美寺邦拉康村的古老多杰雄登壁画。这幅壁画是在庞隆仁波切洛桑图吉时期被委任绘制的。庞隆仁波切洛桑图吉也是下令在色拉寺不远处修建庞隆精舍的上师。传统上,所有护法图像都被遮盖,不对外展示,因为护法修持属于密续本质。点击放大图片。

在藏传佛教中,甘丹、色拉和哲蚌三座寺院是格鲁传承知名的三大寺或三大支柱(藏语:den sa sum)。这并非因为它们是藏地传统上最大的寺院,而是因为这里的修持者一般都被委以守护宗喀巴大师纯净传承(格鲁传承)的重任。正因如此,这三大寺院的修持和仪轨都被视为经得起多个世纪大师们严格审判和千锤百炼的的纯正格鲁传承。

多杰雄登就是这样的一个修持。在1996年之前,多杰雄登是一位受人推崇的护法神。350多年来,格鲁传承、噶举、宁玛和萨迦传承大师们都视多杰雄登为佛。对格鲁传承而言,多杰雄登是文殊菩萨的忿怒化身,而对萨迦传承而言,多杰雄登则是观音菩萨的化身。

事实上,甘丹、色拉和哲蚌寺都曾供奉多杰雄登就意味着多杰雄登曾一度是被成千上万名藏传佛教徒广泛修持的主流法门之有力证明。格鲁传承中拥有无上成就的上师们如至尊嘉杰帕绷喀德钦宁波、至尊嘉杰赤江金刚持、至尊嘉杰林仁波切至尊嘉杰宋仁波切至尊十世班禅大师、至尊第101任甘丹赤巴等,都是多杰雄登修持者。不仅如此,几个世纪以来,除了格鲁大师外,其他如萨迦和竹巴噶举等其他传承上师们都曾著述赞美多杰雄登证悟体性和品质的文字作品。即便是第十四世达赖尊者本身也曾经修持多杰雄登长达40年,他还为这位护法写了一篇文辞优美的礼赞文

然而,就在达兰萨拉西藏流亡政府(现称藏人行政中央)于1996年突然实施多杰雄登禁令后,这一切都变了。

1996年,达赖尊者宣布多杰雄登信徒必须停止信仰多杰雄登,他声称这位护法是一个邪灵。这个达赖尊者所谓的“忠告”促成了多杰雄登禁令,而那些选择继续修持多杰雄登的信徒,至今仍面对遭受压迫、隔离、歧视和仇恨的困境。无论在西藏自治区内或流亡社群中,多杰雄登圣殿、雕像、图像等任何跟这位护法有关的事物皆遭到自称为达赖尊者的忠实追随者所摧毁。有些人被逼加入这个行列,因为任何有利于这位护法的谈话已经成了禁忌。

更令人担忧且具有伤害性的是当弟子被逼去抗拒和批评他们那些修持多杰雄登的上师时,所导致的师徒关系破裂。凡涉及这项修持者皆遭受谴责,甚至主要的传承上师也难以幸免,即便他们同样也依止、教导和弘扬格鲁传承的其他珍贵教诲。家人和朋友之间相互对立,就只因达赖尊者的一个“忠告”和这项禁令的实施。

 

达赖尊者禁止多杰雄登修持,并驱逐僧侣。

 

尽管过去二十多年间存在着种种不利多杰雄登修持者的事件,成千上万名佛教徒依然坚持继续投入这项神圣的修持。有些人选择继续公开修持多杰雄登,而那些害怕会危及自己的家人和生活的信徒则选择在暗中继续修持。然而,许多证据表明,尽管存在着针对这个古老修持的不民主及非法禁令,这个修持却仍然蓬勃发展,并继续散播开来。可想而知,若不是藏人行政中央的压制,这项修持将会如何地广弘开来!

今天,在西藏拉萨著名的色拉美寺,有两处康村(僧侣的同乡屋)依然坚守着这项珍贵的传承。尽管遭到跟从藏人行政中央指示之西藏僧俗群众的反对,这些康村的僧人依然继续供奉多杰雄登。

 


 

西藏拉萨市色拉寺简介

位于西藏拉萨市的色拉寺。点击放大图像。

色拉寺是格鲁传承的三大主要寺院之一,位于西藏拉萨市。该寺于1419年由伟大的宗喀巴大师之弟子绛钦却杰萨迦耶喜所建。寺院由大殿(措钦)和三所经学院(扎仓)——色拉美、色拉杰和阿巴扎仓构成。

就像格鲁传承的另两所寺院——甘丹寺和哲蚌寺——一样,色拉寺也出了许多杰出而博学的大师和学者,如帕绷喀仁波切、堪殊洛桑达庆仁波切、喇嘛图登耶喜、格西饶登和格西益西旺秋。此外,曾担任第15任甘丹赤巴与三大寺住持的班禅索南扎巴也来自色拉寺。从格鲁传承最主要的寺院及各传承上师都曾修持多杰雄登这个事实看来,就足以证明它从来都不是如藏人行政中央所说的那样,属于一项不重要的小修持或甚至是邪灵崇拜。

格鲁派寺院的辩经传统在于检测和加强僧侣对佛教核心教义的理解。色拉寺依然保留了这项传统。点击放大图像。

另一所色拉寺位于印度卡纳塔克邦迈索尔地区附近的拜拉库比。1959年,达赖尊者从西藏逃亡后,跟他一起逃亡的僧侣在印度重建了这座寺院。然而,并不是所有色拉寺的僧人都来到了印度,那些留在西藏的僧人为了维持色拉寺的传统,经历了无数困难。如今他们成功了,位于拉萨市的色拉寺仍然享有“遵循宗喀巴大师宝贵教义和传统的格鲁主要寺院”之美誉。格鲁派寺院的辩经传统在于检测和加强僧侣对佛教核心教义的理解,这著名的辩经传统吸引了许多人慕名前来参观,使得该寺成为备受游客欢迎的目的地。

 


 

色拉美寺的两大多杰雄登康村

色拉美寺共有16所康村,其中两所保留了多杰雄登传承。他们是邦波拉康村(更常称为邦拉康村)和贡如康村。

根据历史和传统,邦拉康村是多杰雄登修持的一个主要据点,该康村的主要护法就是多杰雄登。康村内有一个专为多杰雄登而设的护法殿,建于五世达赖尊者时期。今天,这座具有历史意义的多杰雄登圣殿内保存了许多珍贵的圣物,里头还有庄严的多杰雄登壁画和圣像。

请好好欣赏以下由西藏拉萨的朋友们拍摄的照片。看到西藏的多杰雄登传承被保留得如此完好,且继续茁壮发展,实在令人欣慰。在这里,我们必须赞扬原色拉寺的僧人,因为他们的勇敢,才确保了这个由嘉杰帕绷喀金刚持所传下来的传承能保持清净无染。

下面还有一些故事和证据可以证明这不当的多杰雄登禁令对整个藏族社区究竟造成了多么恶劣的影响。从中你将能了解到针对多杰雄登修持者而来的攻击是多么的野蛮和不堪。藏人行政中央的宗教禁令影响深远,深入到西藏境内的藏族社区和寺庙,给信众们造成了不可估量的痛苦。

这幅古老而神圣的多杰雄登壁画是在庞隆仁波切洛桑图吉时期绘制的。然而,这幅壁画并非在文化大革命时期遭破坏,而是在20世纪90年代多杰雄登禁令颁布后才惨遭破坏。这显示出达赖尊者的“忠告”所构成的严重后果。如果藏人行政中央是一个保护宗教自由的政府,那为何在它们的唆使下,被某些人视为神圣的图像竟会遭受摧毁?点击放大图像。

    关于中国境内多杰雄登修持的消息,在互联网上并不常见。一般网站上有关西藏寺院的资料,显示的大部分也都属于旅游指南类型内容,很少有深入拍摄和介绍个别护法或本尊的。

    西藏拉萨是多杰雄登历史的原发地点,多杰雄登护法的直接前世是杜固扎巴坚赞,杜固扎巴坚赞来自拉萨的哲蚌寺,而后来最重要的多杰雄登传承祖师之一,至尊帕绷喀仁波切则来自拉萨的色拉寺。正因如此,得知目前色拉寺的邦拉康村和哲蚌寺的贡如康村依然保留着多杰雄登传承是十分值得随喜的一件事。

    Thailand is a Buddhist country, the majority of Thai people are devoted Buddhists. Therefore, we can find Buddhist temples almost everywhere in Thailand. Wat Rong Khun is a fairly new temple. However, it is very unique because it is all white. It is a temple designed and built by Thailand’s famous artist, Chalermchai Kositpipat. Chalermchai Kositpipat builds this temple with his own money because he has a very strong faith in Buddhism and he hopes the temple will one day become a heritage to the world.

    Mr. Randy Pauch was very ill when he gave his last speech to the audience. In his speech, he had shared with us a few important points on how to be successful and happy.
    1. Always be appreciative and grateful to the people and things we have. In return, good things will happen to us.
    2. Don’t complain, because complaining does not solve the problems.
    3. When we are sorry for the mistakes we have made, we must do something to make it up. By just saying sorry is not enough.
    4. Be humble and not to react to the negative actions of others towards us.
    5. Be persistent and don’t give up easily. It took Mr. Randy 15 years to make his dream of working at Disney come true.
    6. Death is uncertain and it is beyond our control. We can choose to face death with a positive attitude so when we die, there will be no regret.
    7. Be honest and have integrity, it is hard to do but if we can do that, we will be truly happy and live our lives without regret.

    Mr. Randy had shown us that death is uncertain and we don’t have control over it. However, we have a choice on how we want to live our lives. We are in control of our own happiness. If we have positive thinking, we will be able to turn a negative situation into something positive and then learn and become a better person.

    There are four holy mountains in China, Mount Jiu Hua, Mount Wutai, Mount Emei and Mount Putuo. Mount Wutai is believed to be the abode of Buddha Manjushri, Mount Emei is believed to be the abode of Samantabhadra, Mount Putuo is believed to be the abode of Guan Yin (Avalokiteshvara) and Mount Jiu Hua is believed to be the abode of Ksitigarbha.

    Mount Jiu Hua is located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, the highest peak being the Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings), at 1,342 metres above sea level. There are many temples on Mount Jiu Hua, the oldest and holiest one is called Huangcheng temple. A Korean prince called Jin Qiaojue engaged in a 75-year-long solitary practice and achieved enlightenment at the age of 99 when he passed away.

    Beautiful art paintings of Buddha of Power: Vajrapani and Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. Vajrapani is a Bodhisattva who represents the energy of the enlightened mind and energy that breaks through delusion. He dances wildly within a halo of flames, which represent the transformative power of Awakening.

    Hayagriva Is an extremely wrathful emanation of Amitabha and Chenrezig and Vajravarahi. Making prayers to Hayagriva is a swift and powerful means to overcome negative forces and obstacles including those caused by spirit harms. Its also beneficial to those who suffered from illnesses. A very powerful practice in the tradition of Kyerkangpa who received the practice from Guru Rinpoche in a dream. Beautiful thangka.

    There are 3 Dharma Kings in Tibet. First Dharma King was Songtsen Gampo. His 2 wives from Nepal and China are said to be the emanations of Tara. Due to their influence, King Songtsen Gampo became an enthusiastic promoter of the Dharma in Tibet. The second Dharma King was King Trisong Detsen, he invited great Indian masters Padmasambhava and Shantarakshita to Tibet to spread the Dharma. He also constructed the first Buddhist monastery, Samye Monastery in Tibet and orchestrated the ordination of the first 7 Tibetan Sangha members.

    Beautiful art painting Of Vajrapani and Dorje Shugden paints a thousands words. As a protector and guide of Gautama Buddha and rose to symbolize the Buddha’s power and Dorje Shugden a Dharma Protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings form a powerful combination in this beautiful thangka. It will be wonderful to have it printed in our house or on our altar.
    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

This poor boy is being forced to leave his friend to be sold for slaughter. Children have a natural connection with animals, and they know it is wrong to hurt and kill them. Children lose this connection by being indoctrinated (brainwashed) by their parents/peers into believing animals are here to be exploited, killed, and eaten.- from Lucinda Smyth FB page

    2 yearss ago
    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

KSK Penang Team visited a dialysis patient to deliver dry food provisions for his family. He has a kidney transplant when he was 12 years old and for the past years is undergoing dialysis three times a week and this has put a financial strain to him. We will try to assist him in anyway we can. - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

One day, we received a humble wish list from this poor family, an elderly mother who takes care of her grown up son with special needs. ‘It’s quite uneasy to use toilet without a proper door but I do not have enough money to fix it,’ said the mother. Without a second thought, our kindest sponsor, La Hong Eu has decided to make meaningful sponsorship to this case. Big thanks to Bernard Ting and Vickneshwaran for helping this family to replace the broken one with a brand new folding door. Together we are the reason that someone has a sweet smile on her face. #Kechara #foodbank #care - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
