马来西亚十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老(中)与佩杰林寺的代任住持,以及协调此次拜访之行的马来西亚佛子。

一个希望匿名的人给我发了这个消息,我看了非常高兴,于是就在这里跟您分享,好让大家一同随喜功德。马来西亚十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老源自斯里兰卡,是一位博学的僧人。他长驻马来西亚的十五碑锡兰佛寺,在我们美丽的国土上跟有兴趣学佛的人们分享佛法。他深信佛教各宗派间的和睦关系——即便各个宗派在各自国家具有自身的修持方法,而这些修持方法在彼此看来都陌生。尽管这样,我们到底都是奉行释迦牟尼佛教法的佛教徒。我们应该以此思维作为准绳。我深深赞扬达摩拉达纳长老向佛教其他宗派的佛子建交,培养友好、和睦的关系,身体力行向我们展示佛陀的法教。

祈愿达摩拉达纳长老长寿、健康,法业增长,利益无数众生。

谦卑的詹杜固仁波切敬启

 

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切,扎西德勒。

给您致上最诚挚的问候。我就住在马来西亚,但我们从未见过面。我不去吉隆坡的任何一家佛教中心获团体,因为我的上师就在西藏,我到西藏去拜见他。25年来我一直都在修持多杰雄登的法门,因为这是我上师给我的指示。我想让您看看我们马来西亚十五碑锡兰佛寺长老达摩拉达纳的照片。最近,他到访尼泊尔的多杰雄登护法寺院——佩杰林寺。我觉得您或许会想要知道这一则消息,因为您曾见过长老。我希望您能在您的网站上分享这则消息,但我还是想保留自己的身份。

南传佛教的追随者没有宗派之分甚好。长老可以到访尼泊尔的藏传佛教寺院,在寺院的佛龛前礼拜,纯粹的以一个僧人的身份跟另一个僧人说话……对我来说,这是一个好风气,因为我们都是佛子佛女。

然而在马来西亚,我知道有的藏传佛教中心喜欢跟达赖喇嘛拍照,并且四处张扬他们跟达赖喇嘛的合照,好让别人以为他们跟达赖喇嘛很是亲近。接着他们借此为由,让人们误以为他们对每一个人都具有某种权威,让人们误信他们有权决定哪种佛教是正法,哪种佛教不是正法。事实却并非如此。他们非常喜欢掌控马来西亚的各个佛教中心,喜欢将权力玩弄于股掌之间。这非常要不得。他们借多杰雄登护法的争议阻止佛教的弘扬并且操控他人,他们的行径充满政治色彩。

马来西亚是个民主国家,她包容任何一个宗教,任何一个信仰的存在。更何况那一组人及他们的委员会是在家人,他们不善佛法,即使他们之中有僧人,但也只是普通僧人,不是真正博学的僧人或大格西。真正的僧人和博学的大格西不会制造冲突或批评其他的佛教。尊敬的达摩拉达纳并不在意多杰雄登护法的争议,他不搞政治,也不贪恋权力。他纯粹的去拜访另一座寺院,从中造就更多和睦。我为此感到骄傲不已。他为藏传佛教的僧人和追随者树立好榜样,这才是正法——制造和睦友爱的氛围、接受他人的宗教、神明和修行。我们绝对不可以因为别人的宗教信仰而憎恨他人,或是隔离他们。我们都身为人,每个人在社会中都需要和平与爱。我们必须和睦共处,不管是衣食住行的层面或是工作,又或是祈祷。千万不可允许任何人利用宗教来分裂他人。这是佛陀的开示。

话说回来,我觉得仁波切应该会乐见这一幅各宗派、传承间的祥和、和睦之景。我也给您寄我找到的好几张照片。您不是我的上师,但仁波切,我常祈愿您能长寿。希望您的工作能越做越好。我也在此为自己拙劣的英文说声抱歉,我没上英文学校。

善哉,善哉,善哉。

佩杰林寺的历史

佩杰林寺原址在西藏,本是一座噶举寺院,但于1665年五世达赖尊者统治期间改宗为格鲁派。1959年文革期间,寺僧带着寺院中最珍贵的多尊佛像逃离西藏,在尼泊尔的加德满都的斯瓦扬布纳特(俗称“猴庙”)重建佩杰林寺。

这座寺院以坚守格鲁派传承教法,如各本尊——密集金刚、大威德金刚、胜乐金刚的修持法门而闻名遐迩。这座寺院供奉多尊佛教护法神,最有名的为多杰雄登护法。此寺的护法殿中供奉一尊由五世达赖尊者亲手铸造的多杰雄登像。

Lau(刘)原本的留言

许多西藏喇嘛来马来西亚不是为传授佛法,反而是为传扬他们的宗派之见而来的。他们要求你跟从他们的喇嘛及达赖喇嘛。虽达赖喇嘛是个高僧,但我没有必要完全遵从他的每一句话。我来自南传佛教传承,我们并不信达赖喇嘛是个佛,或是某个菩萨的化身。在马来西亚,人们不应以达赖喇嘛的名义强迫人们遵循达赖喇嘛所认为对的方式去修行。我们马来西亚人想修哪一种形式的佛教就修哪一种;我们要拜哪一尊神就拜哪一尊神;我们选择自己的宗教,我们要修什么就修什么。

我们甚至还膜拜先人从中国带来的道教神明。有的喇嘛说我们的神明不是佛,我们不应膜拜他们,或是不应将我们的神明与佛同放在神台上。那些喇嘛凭什么说这样的话制造纷争?在我的家中,关二爷和佛陀并列在一座神台上。我们世世代代都这样拜,一个西藏喇嘛怎敢告诉我关二爷不是佛,所以我不能膜拜他?关二爷世世代代都在护佑我的家人及过去在中国的先人,几百年下来都是关二爷在关照我们。我不在乎关二爷是不是佛,因为关二爷是我们家族的守护神明。

我的父母为某些西藏喇嘛的行为感到非常不悦,因为他们存有偏见,并且要求我们只能跟从他们的方式。他们告诉我们达赖喇嘛说我们要信正法,如果我们将世间神明供在神台上,或膜拜他们,就会污染纯净的佛教。他们告诉我们,我们不得膜拜不是佛的神明。

但让我来告诉你一件事:南传佛教中有不少出家人认为达赖喇嘛的修行并非纯净之法。他们认为达赖喇嘛的修行已经混入印度教。你或认同,或不认同,但许多人的确是这样想的。这也就是为什么南传佛教盛行的国家如泰国、柬埔寨、缅甸、寮国、斯里兰卡、马来西亚、新加坡、越南及印度尼西亚不允许达赖喇嘛拜访。这不是什么新鲜事,而是几十年来都在上演的事。

有的人说达赖喇嘛之所以不能前去拜访那些国家是因为中国政府对他们施压,但事实是当地的出家人并不接受他。至于中国的施压也是过去几年中国崛起为世界列强才出现的事,但达赖喇嘛不能拜访那些国家早在中国崛起前就发生。真相是那些国家地位崇高的出家人不视(好比)达赖喇嘛所信仰的藏传佛教为正法。因此,如果达赖喇嘛因为你供奉多杰雄登而说你不是一个真正的佛教徒,这是无稽之谈,也显示他对东南亚文化的一无所知。泰国人拜佛也拜各个财神;华人,如我,拜关二爷也拜佛;缅甸人拜各种“纳”(神灵)也拜佛。泰国有一位家喻户晓,名为“南卦”的财神,她其实是个灵;缅甸人膜拜的“纳”,实际上就是生前遭横死的灵体。而关二爷,据我们所知,是中国人的战神。这些都是冰山一角的例子。

我听说在马来西亚有人提出了对多杰雄登的质疑。我要问的是,为什么要质疑呢?达赖喇嘛既不是马来西亚的领袖,也不是全世界佛教徒的领袖。他是很有名,但那又怎样呢?总不能他名气大,所有人都必须盲目的遵从他。他名气大也不表示他不会犯错。更何况,他甚至并非从一开始就是所有藏佛佛教追随者的至高领袖。据我所知,藏传佛教中的各个教派都有自己的领袖,而且各个教派领袖之间也并不和睦。

在马来西亚,没有任何一个在家人、僧人或僧尼具备作为所有佛教徒的领袖而所需的知识、背景及身份地位,也不具备每个佛教宗派之人都敬重,进而推选他为佛教徒之首的条件。没有任何一个在家众或僧人能掌控马来西亚的所有佛教徒。这里不是西藏。任何人都不应利用一个名气大的僧人之名来替自己背书,并且对人发号施令。这么做只会导致剧烈的纷争,纷争也确实已经因此上演。马来西亚这片国土拒绝藏人政治的干扰。每一个佛教团体都是独立的个体,他们每个都获得准证,在马来西亚的民主法制下运行。

十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老的确给马来西亚人及全世界的佛教徒树立绝佳榜样。我们应该拥护彼此,造就和睦的氛围,而不是找理由杯葛彼此。尊敬的达摩拉达纳长老拜访每一座寺院或庙宇,不管里头供的是关二爷或多杰雄登或其他神明。只要你邀请他,他都会前去赐予加持。这才是正确的做法。但对达赖喇嘛来说,你若供多杰雄登,他不会赐你加持,你不被允许参加他的开示及世俗的演讲。这么做分明是隔离,对一个僧人而言也不适当。这是错误的。如果你修多杰雄登的法,达赖喇嘛就不会到你的寺院去,这是大错特错。这不是民主领袖会做的事,也不是一个倡导民主的出家人会做的事。

哪门子的佛教会因为别人的宗教信仰而去排挤他们?达赖喇嘛应该走访各个寺院,绝对不能少了多杰雄登的寺院。他应该跟每一个人见面、沟通、说话,对每一人都慈爱、友善,其中就包括信仰多杰雄登的人们,因为这是一个出家人实修慈悲、爱、包容的方式,而这一切,究竟都是佛陀的法教。

    谢谢分享。

    看到马来西亚十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老参观佩杰林寺是让人感到非常开心的事情。

    在马来西亚, 因为多杰雄登禁令的关系, 多杰雄登让很多“佛教徒”或“佛教中心” 闻风色变。 不过在马来西亚这个提倡宗教自由的国家, 这个附有政治意图的禁令是不是也需要得到马来西亚佛教徒的追捧呢?

    十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老参观佩杰林寺也向这些支持分化佛教徒多杰雄登禁令的附和者狠狠打脸了。 长老是完全体现出佛教徒互相扶持及尊重的精神。 而且他也证明了一位真正的佛教徒并不需要害怕多杰雄登禁令。

    谢谢

    看了仁波切分亨的这篇贴文,感到欣慰又驚喜·欣慰的是达摩拉达納長老沒有宗派之分,他虽是南傳,但也欢喜拜訪金剛乘多杰雄登的寺院·重要的是都是源自佛陀的法与教誨。本耒佛法都是教導世人博愛,慈悲与包容-这个世界才能和平共亨所有一切资源,人与人之间也不会因肤色,种族,宗教而導至不和·每一个正信宗教都是導人向善,而排挤, 不尊重他人信仰以至伤害他人大部份都是人为的·非宗教本身- 所以信徒本身該有觉醒·那一些是对,那一些不該为。
    驚喜的是 Lau 的留言,他本身也是修多杰雄登 長达25年,一心一意。
    虽然尊贵的詹杜固仁波切並非他的上师,但还是祝愿他長寿,法业增長。感谢!
    他也敢怒敢言.說出了很多人的心声·他也说的对真正的僧人和博学的大格西不会制造冲突或批评其他的佛教,而是尊重与包容。敬人者人恆敬之!
    多杰雄登修持争議己这么多年,修持者沒有錯,只是跟隨自己的上师,也沒伤天害理。但愿这篇博文会引起达赖尊者本人及追随者的关注及反思。也祈愿新的一年来臨之際,达赖尊者为世界和平护法 之禁令 俏来好消息!

    感恩尊贵的詹仁波切分享
    顶礼赞颂马来西亚十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老与藏传佛教界建交

    尊贵的达摩拉达纳长老,展现了佛陀的教诲,佛法无边界,一切众生皆平等。
    我们都晓得佛陀的口传法有八万四千个法门,而最主要的三大主流,就是大乘,
    小乘和金刚乘。每个主流都有祂们不同的精髓和教义。
    虽然佛陀的传法已有两千五百年的历史,而且佛陀最主要的教诲就是普渡一切众生,
    脱离苦海,但在这五花八门的世界里,往往还是有一些人为,对某某的传法修持起争议。
    就如现今的西藏流亡政府利用多杰雄登护法课题,来制造宗教和谐的纠纷、排挤和伤害,
    这些都不是佛法所提倡的正法。尊贵的达摩拉达纳长老的做法,显示了他的慈悲和高尚的智慧。真让世人敬佩。

    马来西亚是个满天神佛的国家,宗教信仰自由,而且国家法则第一条就是“信奉上苍”,
    就是每个人都有自己选择的宗教信仰。这里包含着不同种族和不同宗教色彩,比如有回教,
    佛教,道教,基督教,兴都教等等,还加上各宗教不同的派系,林林总总,看了都令人咋舌,无法想象。所以这也吸引了不少国际宗教派系喜欢来这里弘扬和交流。这里到处,
    时时刻刻都可看到大大小小的鬼神诞辰节日或游行,还有国际记者也喜欢来这里采访真相。所以马来西亚人民对宗教的热诚与和平的相处,大家互相的包容,打造了一个和谐和幸福的自由宗教信仰国。
    我以马来西亚为荣, Malaysia Boleh!!!

    尊敬的十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老在佩杰林寺的大殿中,与佩杰林寺代任住持点燃佛陀像前的一座酥油灯,这张照片看了特别令人感动。虽然有多杰雄登的争议,这并没有阻碍了长老到访尼泊尔的多杰雄登护法寺院。

    在此也感谢刘的坦率回复,说明了人们不应该用身份地位和名气来影响甚至强迫性的施压及恐吓他人、误导他人的宗教信仰。我们身在一个多元化的国土,人民都有宗教自由,多杰雄登的争议在马来西亚民主的国家是起不了作用的,政府更不会允许外人制造事端违反国家宪法。那些自称是真宗的佛教分子,却不断的叫说排挤他人,这是不符合佛陀慈悲、爱、包容的教义。

    西藏流亡政府利用宗教制造了如此多纠纷、排斥和伤害,这些都不是佛法所提倡的。人们对佛法的认识渐渐的被扭曲,甚至也慢慢影响了年轻一代对佛教产生了邪见。佛陀的正法,就是制造和睦友爱的氛围、接受他人的宗教、神明和修行。尊敬的十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老与藏传佛教界建交反映了佛教各宗派间的和睦关系,没有宗派之分,这是多么值得宣扬出去,让世人对佛教更有信心。

    谢谢Rinpoche分享

    马来西亚十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老与藏传佛教界建交

    马来西亚是个民主国家,她包容任何一个宗教和尊重他人的选择。
    不管你修什么马来西亚人民都会尊重他人的选择和修行,没有排斥。

    马来西亚也是多元化的国家,大家都尊重会他人的文化信仰从来就不排斥他人的修行。

    每个人都有自己的修行和宗教自由选择的信仰什么佛也好神也好,都个人选择,我们是没有权利去控制他人选择的自由,应该彼此包容,尊重,他人的修行, 和睦相处。

    谢谢

    马来西亚十五碑锡兰佛寺达摩拉达纳长老与藏传佛教界建交
    这是让人振奋的好消息。
    达摩拉纳长老不分宗教派系和政治分歧,是一位让人尊敬的佛教上师。拜访佩杰林寺,坐落在尼泊尔的加德满都 ,纯粹是受邀前往交流和参观。为弘扬佛法与海外的佛教团体建立友好,这是让人学习和赞扬的事。

    马来西亚是宗教自由的国家,各个种族可以自由选择自己的信仰,并得到宪法的保护。不同的宗教和信仰,政府也鼓励大家常常交流和互相尊重,保持友好关系。希望世界各地的宗教团体,在未来也会维护这种多元信仰,多元文化的修行方式,营造一个和平的社会,造福人群。

    On cold winter’s night in New York City, Tsem Rinpoche saw a homeless man and dog. Moved by his plight, Rinpoche bought warm food for the man and his dog, as well as gloves and other cold weather gear and personal care items. Rinpoche even gave the man his personal rosary beads, which Rinpoche has used to make many daily prayers. By by the person having it, it will bless him tremendously…

    Some short videos do not need a lot of explanation. This is one of them.

    This video and the people involved touched me to the core. People who go out of their way to make life better for another living being are the greatest minds to walk the earth. People who care and do their best to make a difference are people who are really using their human potential for something with meaning. People who actually do something.

    Please watch this video and share with others. Why share? Because you care enough to create awareness which will lead to understanding and eradication of these types of unnecessary sufferings. It’s the least you and I can do is to create awareness.

    Have compassion. Practice in life what you admire in conversation-compassion.

    Well its truly a very effective practice and should be included in our daily sahdana. A effective way to purify our negative karma, which has accumulated over the years. With the proper practice and visualization we could transform what is negative and turning them into sublime offerings. It will then allow Dorje Shugden to help us further through the creation of conducive conditions for Dharma practice and the elimination of obstacles.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor David for this well explained sharing.

    Beautiful pictures of H.E Zava Damdin Rinpoche, an erudite Mongolian Buddhist master conferring the initiation of Yamantaka and Dorje Shugden to a crowd of 10,000 people. He was recognised as the reincarnation of one of the greatest Buddhist masters, yogis, healers, scholars and mahasiddhas in Mongolia. A great scholar within the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, he wrote numerous volumes of philosophic writings which are still been used till today. Interesting read of a GREAT Lama.
    Thank you for this sharing

    Lama Thubten Phurbu is truly an incredible , respected Gelug high Lama with his incredible achievements and accomplishments. Having up hold the lineage of Tsongkhapa and the practice of Dorje Shugden . He has done so much speaking up on the ban on Dorje Shugden and has contributed many beneficial projects in Tibet and China. Lama Thubten Phurbu is outspoken about Dorje Shugden and spreading Shugden’s practice and Tsongkhapa’s lineage to as many as to the West, India and Nepal .
    Lama Thubten Phurbu have done much more for the Tibetan people than the CTA have. He travels occasionally to give teachings to preserve these precious lineages for the future. While the CTA is opposing the Chinese and creating mistrust, Lama Thubten Phurbu is building trust with the Chinese government while at the same time upholding the greater welfare of all Tibetans. Wow… Lama Thubten Phurbu has even compiled many prayer texts for the benefits of all sentient beings. Interesting read.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for the sharing, some people love to senses excitement through supernatural power. I have seen the video it scary because it is true from experience. When it come for movies it is interesting to understand how curious our mind works.

    From my experiences I have realized that the feeling of terror is the special aspect, unexpected, suspense and the surprise. Usually horror movies often teach us how to protect, to overcome difficult situation, to control the fear, prayer and meditation. The smart and brave characters of a person can be seen with a lot of much struggle.

    I enjoyed this article, it made me to recall some of my doubt and fear memories during my young days.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this special rare Buddha with us. Enlightened beings are very compassionate to have manifested in various forms for various purposes for us to get blessings. This Buddha is manifested specifically for us to curb with our own laziness.

    According to Rinpoche, laziness comes in various forms and not just the superficial laziness that we can easily identify. There are some form of laziness is much more ingrained in us and it may manifest into some other behaviours.

    This afternoon, Tsem Rinpoche, Ladrang Liaison Pastor Loh Seng Piow, Beng Kooi, Fat Monk, and Monlam were in a fish shop in Cheras to look for some fishes for the Ladrang’s pond.

    Rinpoche took the group for a meal in a restaurant nearby. While in the restaurant, Rinpoche saw many fishes in 2 crowded glass tanks, and Rinpoche couldn’t bear it as Rinpoche knew the fate of these fishes – they will take turn to be on dinner plates throughout the Chinese New Year period. The fishes were huge, about 8 or 9 inches long and all of them will be gone in a few days!

    After some negotiation, Fat Monk convinced the restaurant owner to sell the fishes at a reduced price. The owner also gave us all their eels free, knowing that we bought the fishes to be liberated. We also took all the frogs in the restaurant. They were so kind that they told us to liberate the fishes fast and come back to pay later or the next day! They let us go without any payment! I think they were touched by Rinpoche’s act of kindness and reciprocated. No restaurant will let go of their fishes easily during this period as supply of fishes are scarce, and the festive season is the peak period to make maximum profit.

    This is so horrible, the way how the horse is being slaughtered! It is not humane at all. Imagine the fear the horse has to go through before its last moment.

    How can we still enjoy our meat dishes knowing how much pain the animals have to suffer? We use horses for horse racing when they are still young and strong. When they are older, we kill them for their meat. This is life but we are treating them like an object.

    If we want a more peaceful world, less violence, we have to learn to generate compassion. One of the ways to develop our compassion is to stop eating meat because we don’t want animals to suffer. If we can afford and have time, we can also consider adopting animals from the shelters. As the demand for meat decreases, there will be less killing.

    Chinese activists recently stood up to dog meat traders and rescued 900 dogs bound for slaughter for human consumption. Many of the dogs were clearly stolen family pets, even wearing tags and collars: Huskies, German Shepherds, Poodles and the like, many extremely ill and dying from the slave ship like conditions of the truck and cages. One woman found her lost Golden Retriever on the truck, but was told she could not take him home unless she paid off the trader. The activists were beaten and after a 50 hour standoff finally rescued all of the dogs. However, by that time some dogs had died and the activists were forced to bury them at the scene.

    The ‘Ocean Drover’ is regarded by the live export industry as being one of the ‘best’ vessels on the water. But right now, animals confined within it are suffering and dying.

    After breaking down four weeks ago, just days after leaving Australia, the ship has been travelling at a reduced speed – extending an already long and arduous journey for the 48,000 sheep and cattle on board. On Friday it was revealed that the Ocean Drover had to make an emergency stop near Djibouti, Africa, after running low on feed for the animals, and now the exporter has confirmed the mounting deaths on board – still days from their final destination. One can only imagine what the surviving animals are enduring.

    The exporter has expressed dismay at not achieving their usual ‘success rate’ but this is an industry that judges ‘success’ by the number of animals still standing at the end of a voyage. Sheep suffer and die on every live export ship that leaves Australia and their deaths are considered just a routine part of doing business. The animals onboard the Ocean Drover may be beyond our help. But don’t let their suffering be in vain – your MP needs to hear their story. Please take 2 minutes to call your Federal Member TODAY to express your utter dismay at yet another live export tragedy.

    Hummingbirds are easy to attract to a backyard garden, a cinch to keep well fed, and a joy to watch. These sparkling jewels of sum at mer are easy to love.

    But if you don’t take proper care to provide healthy nectar and clean feeders, they’re also an easy bird to love to death.

    Hummingbird feeders must be kept clean and free from mold and fungus, or the tiny hum-buzzers you so enjoy could develop a serious and deadly fungus infection. This infection causes the tongue to swell, making it impossible for the bird to feed.

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.

    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
