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。

    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

    Interesting read so so…….Tsem Rinpoche ‘s previous reincarnation was Kentrul Thubten Lamseng. Kentrul Rinpoche Thubten Lamsang was one of the most important disciples of Kyabje Trijang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso. Reincarnation do exists as confirmed in many cases . Both Kentrul Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche have many similarities in so many ways. As such Guru Devotion, spreading Dharma , building of Kechara Forest Retreat , building of Big statues and so forth to benefit more people. Following Guru’s advice coming to Malaysia to a place unheard of to spread Buddhism teachings . We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche in Malaysia and able to learn Dharma. A beautiful write up of a Great Lama where many of us will benefit reading it.
    Thank You Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this information.

    Sakya tradition have been long relyed on Dorje Shugden since the 17 centuries with the 30th Sakya Trizin Sonam Rinchen who enthroned and worshipped Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector. Its has proven that Gelugpas are not the only sect who practice Dorje Shugden. They are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. They are have built chapels , composed prayers and pujas to him and even propagated Dorje Shugden practice . They cannot be wrong after all. Dorje Shugden is definitely not evil or spirits , those High Lamas will have the clairvoyance to see the very true nature of Dorje Shugden. That is as Avalokiteshvara, a fully enlightened being which is confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen. The 31st Sakya Trizin who composed the Dorje Shugden kangsol text is still widely used to this day.
    Interesting read which I do enjoyed reading from time to time to understand more so as to increase my knowledge.
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this interesting write up.

    Thai King, Such A Great Monarch!

    I have admired this great Monarch, leader and Dharmaraja since I first read of him many years back. I do not admire him in a political capacity. I am not into politics nor get involved. My post here on him is not as a political figure. But my admiration for him is as a great human being, a kind hearted person and someone who works for others. My praise of him is as a great human being. He is a great hero for me. I admire people who use their lives for others.

    Vajra Yogini Daju or self initiation

    Self initiation purifies ones vows taken before, mends them, re affirms them, and powerful to purify many downfalls in general that prevent attainments from one’s practice. Also you may retake your mantra count commitment if it was broken.

    You plant the 4 types of initiations into one’s mindstream. It is necessary for the Lama also to do daju prior to conferring Vajra Yogini’s initiation to others.

    It is a powerful tantric practice to restore one’s practice from time to time to assure success in one’s sadhanas.

    Baha’i faith started in Iran in the early 1800s and ended up with its spiritual locus, by accident of empire in modern Israel. It is a faith that embraces all major religions, positing that God enlightened humankind over the ages by sending prophets – Abraham, Zoroaster, Krishna, the Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. As noncontroversial as that may seem, it hasn’t prevented Baha’is from being persecuted, mostly in Iran, where they are regarded as apostates. The problem is with the idea that the Creator sent a messenger after Muhammad.

    The 16th Karmapa is a highly respected monk due to his high attainments. He is not someone that will simply make remarks or comments on Buddha’s statue if it is not correct or he is not 100% sure. When he asked for the statue to be removed, the Karmapa knows what he is doing.

    Advice from a master who is this caliber should not be taken lightly. The 16th Karmapa is renowned for his attainments and clairvoyance. He should had seen into the future to know what will happen in the future and the how Dorje Shugden will be the best protector for us during this time.

    He could have recommended any other Kagyu protectors but he did not. Now we see how big the Dorje Shugden issue is and everyone who has the merit and affinity to Dorje Shugden will start to grow as well.

    After Shakyamuni’s death, practitioners took Buddha’s teachings to East Asia, where the religion still exists today in countries like Mongolia, Korea, China, and Japan. In order to reach East Asia however, these teachers followed the Silk Route, leaving through northern India and traveling into Central Asia, a region of the world which includes countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan.

    Thus as Buddhism migrated eastwards, its practitioners established monasteries and gave teachings in Central Asia. As a result of these teachers, there now many Buddhist sites throughout Pakistan which archaeologists are uncovering every day.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this article with us. It is amazing to see how intelligent and kind some animals are. Who would have thought that a whale will have the ability to think that the women are in danger and it has to help her?

    This shows that animals have feelings and they do know kindness. They can appreciate and give kindness. That women also have some good karma too. Due to her work to raise awareness for whales, she would have saved alot of whale through her work. Hence, the good karma comes back and saved her life.

    This is also why I am a vegetarian. Other animals have feelings too and they are afraid of dying as well. Why will I want to put animals through the process of suffering just to fill my stomach? That does not make sense.

    This is an interesting finding that red meat can shorten our life. From the health point of view, red meat has high cholesterol and animal fat content. Those are actually not good for our body and they can cause a lot of problems when our age catches on and our body can’t heal itself quick enough anymore.

    On the Karma point of view, eating meat is the act of killing. Some might debate saying they are not involved in the killing of the animal directly and hence it is not considered as killing. However, they don’t realize that they are creating causes for the animal to be killed by requesting for its meat. The Butcher will then have to kill the animals to provide the meat for you. Hence, it is still considered as killing but indirectly.

    The karma of killing is very heavy and many are not aware of it. The effect from the karma of killing is where we will have a life where we will have difficulties to stay alive. We will be born in places where there will be alot of disease and not good for living. Hence, it will be better for us to go vegetarianism. The diet of compassion and kindness.

    Do you believe there are ghosts, spirits, and beings that we cannot see? I do believe in that. There are people who are born with a third eye and they can see what we cannot. I think it also depends on the ‘frequency’ of the third eye, I found different people can see different types of beings. My cousin was born with a third eye, he sees spirits that look just like a normal human except they are kind of transparent. I have another friend who can also see spirits, she can see spirits that are in human and non-human form.

    What are the different forms unseen beings will manifest? Watch these Japanese movies to learn about the spirit/ghost culture in Japan.

    Indeed a very important number 4 (Noble Truth) not only for Buddhist but everyone. If we understand the teaching then we will practise the right path and not do any more things that will create more suffering on ourselves. Therefore transforming our mind is very important.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

My Nepalese boys work hard and I appreciate them. Today we have purchased special foods for them to snack on and also to cook with so they won\'t be so homesick. These foods are all imported from their country. There\'s a street in downtown K.L. that sell all this. So happy to get this for them. Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~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
