走在甘丹寺的天路上

西藏甘丹寺于1409年由宗喀巴大师所创建

2007年10月31日,我一个人背着行囊带着兴奋的心情到了西藏展开了为期10天的朝圣之旅。对西藏憧憬已久的我,终于在这一刻踏上了这片土地,兴奋的心情难以形容。收集了已久的照片,现在终于有机会和大家分享。

开始旅程的前四天,除了休息时间以外,我都呆在拉萨。一直到了2007年11月3日那天,我们一大早的6点钟从拉萨出发要到甘丹寺朝拜。天还未亮,屋外正吹着寒风,温度大约在0摄氏度左右。畏寒的我身上早已穿上多件衣服抵抗那寒冷的天气。车开了大约一小时半就隐约看到山顶上的宏伟建筑物,处于海拔3800米高 (12,467尺)的我们,脑袋还是有点晕眩的。

我在马来西亚家里的佛龛上挂着一幅甘丹寺的老照片,那是前阵子尊贵的詹杜固仁波切赠送的。过去一年多的日子每天在做水供的时候,我都会凝视着这幅画,我也常发梦想到那里朝圣。 现在映入我眼帘的是实实在在的甘丹寺,这画面真的好震撼。

从拉萨出发到甘丹寺大约需1小时30分钟的车程

甘丹寺1409年由宗喀巴大师所创建,宗喀巴大师也是藏传佛教格鲁派的创派祖师。藏族相信宗喀巴大师是文殊菩萨,观世音菩萨,金刚手菩萨的化身。继释迦牟尼佛后,宗喀巴大师被藏族誉为人间第二佛。 当宗喀巴的母亲还怀着他的时候,双亲曾有许多吉祥的梦。出世后宗喀巴的胎盘埋藏处长出了一颗白旃檀树,长出来的每片叶子都显现十万尊狮子吼。后来信徒在这里盖了佛塔寺院,被称为塔尔寺(Kumbum Monastery),意味十万狮子吼佛像的圣地。

早晨的寒风把我的双手冻得好冰,抵达后蒋扬法师(Gen Jamyang) 很窝心的马上把我带到寺院的饭堂喝些热饮。端上来的是久闻的酥油茶。满是奶油兼带咸味的茶我喝来不习惯,但这杯茶还是很管用,起了驱寒的作用,整个人马上暖和起来。这一趟的西藏朝圣旅途真亏有蒋扬法师带路,比起一般的旅客,我有更深一层的了解。

蒋扬法师是刚坚仁波切的得力助手,为人谦卑,慷慨又热心。他刚好从尼泊尔拉章回到西藏家乡探望家人,我趁此机会随他到西藏朝圣。这一趟西藏的行程,主要感激的人还是上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切。仁波切主动联系了蒋扬法师,托付他照顾我和当我的向导。这一旅程的费用,也全都由仁波切资助的。西藏的回忆是完美的。这趟的旅途也让我有不少的领悟。 

窗外的景色,让人有种时空交错的感觉。

顺着甘丹寺周围的小山路,顺时钟绕着整个甘丹寺走了一圈

蒋扬法师说在我们还未进入甘丹寺前,首先得去绕寺(Gaden Monastery’s Kora),那就是顺着甘丹寺周围的小山路,顺时钟绕着整个甘丹寺走一圈,才进入大殿朝拜。小山路上有好多藏人和喇嘛,每个人的脸上都有说不出的安详和愉快。这时天空正飘着五色旗旛,我仿佛踏入了另外一个世界。走在甘丹寺的小山路上,这时的感觉和天离得特别近,这就是甘丹寺的天路。

我曾读过一本经书,书中有一段文字描述一只苍蝇无意中飞过佛塔,然后在佛塔绕了一圈。这因缘无形中替这只苍蝇增添了福报,让它来世没有堕落下三道,而投胎为人。生病的朋友也能通过绕塔绕寺来累积福报,这资粮福报帮我们创造内在与外在对身体康复有利的条件。简单来说,绕塔绕寺能帮助我们净化业障和累积资粮福报。

只有这样雄峻的高山与河川,才能孕育出伟大的成就者

踏着石头路绕寺,身旁还有连绵不断的群山相伴

放眼看去,远方是无尽的高山河川,此刻心情是辽阔无比的。这趟绕寺令我满怀欢喜,真是不枉此行。旅程中所有的辛苦,似乎有了满满的回报。

当我们走到半途,见到了当年黄教格鲁派创始人宗喀巴大师闭关的修行山洞。宗喀巴大师凭着祂超乎凡人的坚定意念,在这里进行了无数次的闭关修行,后来证悟成佛。

宗喀巴大师真身舍利塔

蒋扬法师说,这舍利塔是由中国政府所捐赠,全塔由真金宝石打造而成。舍利塔前方供养着宗喀巴大师与两位心弟的佛像。这趟西藏朝圣之途,到处可见宗喀巴大师与两位心子的佛像和画像;显示藏人们心灵上对宗喀巴大师的信仰和敬重。

甘丹寺护法殿

两位师父正在诵经

在大殿敬完礼后,我们来到了甘丹寺的护法殿,里面正好有两位师父在诵经。护法是佛菩萨的忿怒像化身。因为忿怒像的护法有巨大的法力,祂能有效迅速地帮助我们消除内在和外在的障碍 。护法犹如我们的父母,对众生有着无限的慈悲心。祂对我们严加看管,爱护有加。护法协助我们化解障碍,帮助我们累积资粮福报,协助我们的修行能达成正果。当我趋近佛龛里探看的时候,见到了多杰雄登护法。我在马来西亚的家里也同样供奉了这尊护法。

在护法殿内,蒋扬法师告诉了我这么一段历史:

在最早期把佛教从印度传入西藏的重要人物是寂护大师(Santaraksita)(725-788)又被译为静命、禅怛罗乞答。藏族人称之为希瓦措(https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/寂护)。祂是那烂陀学者,西藏佛教人士。就在寂护刚到西藏传法的时候,祂的一举一动使到西藏旧有贵族与苯教支持者的不满。那时的西藏妖魔鬼怪的首领——乃琼(Nechung)引发了严重的干扰。每当寂护在给于开示的时候都会出现下冰雹、瘟疫、雷击、火患和地震等灾害。

当时的寂护大师已束手无策,祂要求西藏国王派人到印度请求密宗大师莲花生到西藏降魔伏妖。当莲花生大师展现极大的神通力量,成功收服收服这些鬼怪的时候,乃琼化身为一男童跪拜在大师的前面要求饶恕,发誓永远护卫西藏佛教成为护法。降魔后, 桑耶寺(Samye Monastery)也顺利的建成了。乃琼也因此被封为桑耶寺的大护法。

几百年后,有一次当宗喀巴大师在甘丹寺开示完毕后,乃琼现身宗喀巴大师面前,要求持律主扎巴坚赞(Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen ,1374-1434) 发大誓愿护持宗喀巴大师所授的龙树菩萨珍贵的教义《中观论》。扎巴坚赞是宗喀巴大师的杰出门徒,同时祂也是一位德高望重的戒律持有者。 扎巴坚赞当然马上答应了这要求。

再过了两百多年,当时机成熟,因缘俱足的时候,乃琼找上了持律主的转世杜固扎巴坚赞(Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen ,1619 – 1656),提醒了他所答应过这事。经过乃琼几百多年的精心策划,杜固扎巴坚赞内心升起一股愤怒,往生之后顺利成为忿怒护法。多杰雄登是智慧佛文殊菩萨的化身,肩负维护第二能仁宗喀巴大师的珍贵教诲造福众生的重任。在这末法时代,多杰雄登是最能帮助我们的护法,因為祂是如此的迅速、具备无比的力量和慈悲心。

我很感恩能在西藏的甘丹寺与这位护法再次结缘,多杰雄登是宗喀巴大师的大护法,在甘丹寺供奉这位护法是理所当然的。外传的谣言已不攻自破,说什么修这护法会促使十四世达赖喇嘛折寿,我心里想:十四世达赖喇嘛是观世音菩萨的转世,怎能会有任何邪魔能伤害祂半分?再说多杰雄登是文殊菩萨的化身,又是萨迦派的传承护法,祂是一位已证悟的护法,主要功能是保护我们的佛法修行;一位证悟的佛怎么可能伤害他人?其他著名的证悟护法有吉祥天母(度母的化身)、六臂大黑天(观世音菩萨)、四臂大黑天、阎魔法王和金甲衣护法(阿弥陀佛的化身)。在修行的道路上,我很庆幸詹杜固仁波切把这护法的法门带给我们;因为不管发生什么事,多杰雄登都会不离不弃的守候我们,一路扶持,直到我们脱离这娑婆世界为止。

回去拉萨的路上,我的内心是安祥的。我心想:未来的日子,还有机会旧地重游吗?

    谢谢叶师杰师兄的分享

    让我们能够看到那么多如此殊胜的照片,祈愿所有的众生,都能够前往西藏甘丹寺朝圣。
    很感激看到了多杰雄登护法以及金甲衣护法以及其他护法的殊胜佛像完整的被保留了下来,祈愿伟大的甘丹寺,能够继续发光发热,把佛法如随风飘扬的旗幡一样,让佛法弘扬十方。

    感恩

    Thank you for this sharing, Paul, of your trip to Gaden Monastery in Lhasa. It is refreshing to read a down to earth travelog as it is packed with ingredients to can us see the journey through your eyes. I hope all aspirants will be able to make it to Gaden Monastery in Lhasa one day too.

    Ganden Monastery is one of the earliest and largest Buddhist monasteries in Tibet, It was constructed in 1409 near Lhasa by the founder of the Gelug order, Je Tsongkhapa Lozang-dragpa. Paul is indeed very fortunate able to visit it and saw most of the important monasteries. This trip has given Paul the opportunity to have a lot of insight details too. That’s really wonderful for a first timer visiting Tibet and got the chance to see Buddha Tsangkhapa inside the Gandan Monastery Basilica and also Tsongkhapa’s stupa which is made of real precious stones. It would be wonderful to visit it some day. Thank you Paul for sharing this beautiful memories trip of a life time.

    由真金宝石打造而成的舍利塔真的令人震撼,并让我大开眼界。由此可见,如果一间佛寺没有保持纯正的传承和真正履行责任传扬佛法利益众生,相信中国政府并不会作出任何捐赠,并让此寺院长久地延续下去。

    感谢Paul 的无私与大家分享此次的朝圣心得,尤其是那些珍贵照片。

  5. Julia Tan on Jan 3, 2018 at 12:20 am

    谢谢师兄的分享!甘丹寺里的多杰雄登护法佛像证明了多杰雄登护法除了是甘丹寺几百年以来所有格鲁的信徒都在修的护法、而且还是世世代代所有德高望重的高僧喇嘛们所修的护法。这几百年来多杰雄登不但护持着甘丹寺和所有修持者、当年祂还护持尊贵的达赖尊者和上千的高僧大德和家人逃离西藏平安来到印度。因此多杰雄登的修行也从印度延续到国外去。

    所以多杰雄登禁令是不合逻辑的,因为如果是真的,多杰雄登早就被毁了,难道还有机会被供养在甘丹寺的护法殿吗?为什么几百年前不禁,偏偏要等到20年前才禁呢?达赖尊者非要在20年前才开始多杰雄登的禁令,到底用意在哪里呢?

    因为达赖尊者在世界上的名望和地位,加上西藏流亡政府的压迫,很多人会选择放弃多杰雄登,可是也有很多人是选择永不放弃的。身为佛教徒不应该轻易放弃自己的根本上师所传授于我们的任何一项修行,这包括护法。如果我们可以轻易就放弃一位无时无刻保护着你的人,那和抛弃自己的父母没什么两样,那我们根本就没有资格把自己称为佛教徒,这是我做人的看法。

    今天能够看到多杰雄登护法屹立在甘丹寺的护法殿里感到非常的安慰和随喜。

    去年九月份我有幸和一班同学去西藏。如果我没记错的话, 拉萨市去甘丹寺需要一个小时左右的车程。由于甘丹寺不是在我们的行程中,加上在西藏外宾不能单独离群(这是西藏导游说的)所以我打消了去甘丹寺这个念头。
    在那时候,我真的有点失落因为难得有机会去到拉萨但是去不到甘丹寺(格鲁派的母寺)。
    Paul Yap 的甘丹寺详细介绍和解释令我更加了解多杰雄登护法和在网络上的谣言不攻自破。如果多杰雄登是西藏中央政府所说的魔,那么为什么祂会出现在甘丹寺的护法殿里。
    感恩Paul Yap 和 詹杜固仁波切的分享。这篇报道让我更加了解甘丹寺和多杰雄登护法的传承。有机会一定要去甘丹寺朝圣。
    谢谢。

    谢谢叶师杰师兄的分享。

    西藏甘丹寺是多么的美丽、 庄严、吉祥。 又宗喀巴大师所建, 也是现在弘扬全世界甘丹发教的发源地。 感谢叶师杰把那么多宗喀巴大师像, 多杰雄登像的照片分享给大家, 让大家有机会一览甘丹寺内的佛龛。
    也感恩仁波切把宗喀巴大师和多杰雄登法门带给身在马来西亚的我们。 让我们有机会在这里供奉着和甘丹寺一样的佛和护法。

    甘丹寺内供奉多杰雄登, 代表那么多年来多杰雄登都是在格鲁传承里其中一位证悟的护法, 也证明藏人行政中央所说的多杰雄登是一位邪灵的说法是完全不可取的。

    谢谢

    It was through such meditations on Chenrezig and his qualities of compassion, along with the teachings that Rinpoche received from his teacher, His Eminence Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin, that Rinpoche was able to tolerate and even forgive his mother for the mental, physical and emotional abuse that she put the young Rinpoche through. A couple of years later in 1979, when Rinpoche was 14 years old, Rinpoche had the great fortune to attend a teaching by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in Washington, New Jersey. That particular teaching was on the Eight Verses of Thought Transformation and it was also during that time that Rinpoche received the oral transmission of Chenrezig’s mantra, OM MANI PEME HUNG, from His Holiness.

    “It is such a pity that because of the Dorje Shugden ban, people like me get distracted from knowing this Dharma master beyond the controversy. It is a great loss that his insightful and generous teachings conveyed in a relatable manner are lost in the fight between pro-Dorje Shugden and pro-Dalai Lama groups.”

    Expanding on this thought, I realized how many good lessons in life we miss because we focus on the negative aspects of life that blind us from the hope that still shines before us everyday. The wider impact of this “little ban” is significant because it reveals how we permit things to be despite knowing it is completely wrong and that it destroys all the civil progress that our forefathers fought for. It is like shutting one eye and walking away from a situation where help is desperately needed.

    A few years ago my Chinese TCM doctor discovered something wrong in my liver and asked me to go for Western medical checkup. It appeared that I had some hardening of my liver, which if left untreated or just the way it is can turn into something more terminal. So that diagnosis came out and I was put on a diet and given special medication for that. During that time, my students contacted Choje-la’s assistants, asking that the next time he takes trance, to please ask the dharma protector if there’s any pujas, or any recourse or what should be done for me.

    The next thing I knew, Choje-la got on a plane with his entourage and landed in Malaysia to see me. I had the honor of having him stay in my own home. It was during that time that I have gotten to know Choje-la better, and it turns out that he is a very knowledgeable monk, a very kindly, well-experienced monk who has no agenda, has very strong guru devotion and very pure in his monk vows. I grew to respect, love and admire this monk, and really thought to myself that I am lucky to have him as a friend now, because he’s a really good monk and person. These qualities move me. Pure monks are very beneficial to dharma. He inspires me very much. During many difficult times, he has taken trance at my request in order that I can consult the dharma protector for certain answers that really kept me in the dark and that would have made a huge difference both wrong or right if the right steps were not implemented.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing the story of how Dorje Shugden healed Tsem Rinpoche through a prestige oracle. It is interesting to know that Dorje Shugden and Tsem Rinpoche have such close relationship that Dorje Shugden would straight away fly to him when Rinpoche needed help.

    Dorje Shugden showed off his healing abilities here and we are indeed fortunate to have the chance to meet and practice the sadhana of such a powerful being. This also showed off the power of faith in the almighty protector Shugden. When we have faith and we are sincere in doing Dharma, the protector will clear our obstacles even if we have a serious condition that can be proven to be fatal.

    Such cases are not rare and it is well known that Dorje Shugden can perform miracles for those who believed in him. This is due to Dorje Shugden’s close affinity with us which enables him to give us the blessings that we need.

    多杰雄登护法寂静尊降神时,以高僧身份示现,能够给予加持、开示、灌顶等,而我们也都知道,多杰雄登就是文殊菩萨的化身,跟文殊菩萨拥有同一个心相续,必然也拥有同等的智慧,这意味着在多杰雄登寂静尊降神和给予开示时,其实跟文殊菩萨示现给予开示是没有分别的。在这末法时期的我们,虽然没机会亲自见到佛陀,但护法透过神谕降神的慈悲示现,却让我们有机会现场接受文殊菩萨的教诲。这是多么殊胜的一件事。

    This fantastic and brave decision of Mr. Jay Wilde for turning his cow farm to arable farming.
    This article was truly amazing of Mr. Jay, switching his family oriented business, by putting his heart and soul successfully running a vegan organic market farm supplying garden produce without using animal products or fertilizers.

    Its was very generous of Mr. Jay to donate all his herd of cows to an animal sanctuary to protect them from the slaughterhouse. An interesting sharing of saving animal and giving them hope.

    Thank you so much for this article. Shantideva immersed himself in study and contemplation. His sacrifice and perseverance laid a path that has guided countless others to Buddhism and continues to do so today. Till this day, his teachings are still studied and revered by Buddhist scholars around the world.

    Shantideva was attracted to spirituality and Buddhism from a very young age. Shantideva’s purity of mind and truthiness of purpose were rewarded with visions of Manjushri. Thank you.

    Then, Tsydenov was imprisoned multiple times but he is still remembered today by the people of Buryatia as a true Dharma King and a national hero. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for this article. Ucheyma’s inspiring depiction as a self-decapitating goddess has inspired generations of practitioners since the introduction of tantric practice in ancient India.

    In fact, every deity represents an enlightened activity which primarily counters a particular delusion. It is true that the Ucheyma’s practice purifies the psychic poisons of ignorance, hatred and desire. This purification leads to the attainment of the three bodies of a Buddha – the truth body, the enjoyment body and the emanation body. Thank you.

    Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago. Beautiful and rare thangkas which tells a thousand words depicting the founding fathers of the Sakya tradition which includes Dorje Shugden as a Protector. It has proven that many high lamas has been practicing Dorje Shugen’s practice centuries ago. Since Dorje Shugden practice arose, countless images of Dorje Shugden together with other Buddhas have been produced over the years.
    We are fortunate able to see all these rare thangkas and downloading for free.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us a brief life story of Lama Tsongkhapa in depicted in 15 beautiful and meaningful paintings. All these beautiful paints a thousands words. We are fortunate to practice the guru yoga of the great Lama Tsongkhapa, and receive his teachings through our Guru. Many famous gurus, lamas and teachers rely on Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings up to this day. His teachings is so powerful and is considered, by millions, to be a great sage of our times. Merely by seeing, reading and understanding the life of a Great Lama is a blessing as it helps us to have a better knowledge. It had a profound impact on the history of Asia and spread across the globe.
    May the pure teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa flourish continuously and spread in all directions.

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

    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
