開光法會:尊勝佛母灌頂開示(2015.4.25) Teachings on the Empowerment of Us

灌頂的意涵是:令成熟、獲得掌握權力、獲得自在,令我們凡夫的身體轉變成金剛乘。

 

若我們能了解灌頂的意思,將所了解的於生活中實踐,例如行十善業等等,則可獲得生生世世的自在。

 

透過身口意的灌頂,我們獲得、生起慈悲心的自在。

 

有人說,若未持守三昧耶誓言,灌頂所受的水會轉成鐵蠍,將我們的心吞沒。這是望文生義的説法。鐵蠍實際上指的是我們的忌妒心和我執。若沒有接受灌頂、沒有修持慈悲心,我們的我執和負面情緒一樣會把我們帶往地獄的。

 

重點是根據自己能力選擇持守誓言。例如,直至成佛以前,或直至死亡不失菩提心。時時進行修補、懺悔,這才是重點。我們不能因為害怕不能持守誓言而不受灌頂。

 

有許多人問:透過網路是否能受灌頂?因為我們求灌頂的對象是遍滿虛空的三世諸佛,並不是在小小的寶瓶裡。能否獲得灌頂的信心是關鍵。透過信心來了解灌頂內容而得到教法,付諸實修。才是得到灌頂的精隨。

 

所有諸佛如同大樹。咒語和修持法門就如同枝葉。而大樹的(諸佛的)根是慈心和悲心。

 

我們的誓言就是「今直至佛果,不失去慈悲心」。修行此法就是修安忍跟培養慈愛心。

 

The meaning of "empowerment"is to mature, gain the power of controlling ourself, become free from sufferings and the influences of the karmic winds to transform our ordinary bodies into vajrayana vehicles.

 

We need to understand the essence and meaning of empowerment and apply this to our daily life. For example, practising the ten virtuous actions and arousing Bodhicitta, then we become free from suffering and the influence of the karmic winds in our future lives (we experience the benefit in this and future lives).

 

Through the empowerment of our body, speech and mind we arouse love and compassion and free ourselves from sufferings.

 

Someone said the water we receive from the empowerment could turn into an iron scorpion and swallow our hearts if we don't keep our samaya. Whoever said this merely understood this on a superficial and literal level. Actually, the iron scorpion refers to our ego and afflictive emotions, such as jealousy and anger. If we receive an empowerment and don't practise on love and compassion but anger, hatred and so forth instead, this will take us to a hell realm.

 

The key point is we make a commitment according to our abilities. For example, some people commit not to abandon Bodhicitta until they attain enlightenment, some people commit not to abandon Bodhicitta until they die. Fixing our faults constantly and confessing are important. We should not avoid taking a vow due to fear of not being able to keep the vow.

 

Many people asked me whether they can receive an empowerment through online streaming or internet. The crucial point of receiving the empowerment is to have faith in the Buddhas of the three times, who we ask for the empowerment and pervade space, rather than the stuff in this tiny vase. The way to understand the essence of the empowerment is to learn the meaning of the teachings with faith then practise them.

 

The Buddha at three times are like a big tree. Various mantras and practice methods are like branches. The root of the big tree is love and compassion which you need to water.

 

Our samaya is not to abandon love and compassion until we attain enlightenment. To practise this is to practise patience and cultivate love and compassion.
