Light cast away fear.

Where there is light, people gathers.

Where there is light, there is hope.

There is no need for words to bring unknown indivudals together to light up the lamps.

There is no differentiation to who we are and where we come from when we light up each lamp.

image

There is only light, clear light that cast away the unknow, the fear and all our worries,

image

Unknown individuals from different walks of life, from differnt countries; many of which we don’t speak a common language but we all are here to light the lamps.

image

We are here to light up the hope for world peace, to light up the happiness in our hearts.

Story of the 10 millions Infinite Lamps : Travelling to Lumbini

Story of the 10 millions Infinite Lamps : Travelling to Lumbini

It was a big challenge to transport the lamps from Beijing to Lumbini. The distance between these two places is about 5000 km, across six completely different types of climate zones, from the sub-arctic to tropical. More specifically, in between the two countries stands the Himalayan mountains, the “Roof of the World.” To ship the lamps by sea would take longer time and would include many uncontrollable factors. The final decision was to transportthem by road. On December 9, 2014, there were 4 heavy trucks, loaded with 92 tons of lamps that had started its journey from Beijing.

Transport3

It took the trucks 13 days to drive from Beijing to Lhasa. After resting for 5 days in Lhasa, the next part of the journey to Zhangmu continued. The trucks twice met heavy snow and it almost closed the mountain road. The Himalayan mountains were full of steep cliffs and snow. Waterfalls had frozen on the ground and formed a thick icy layer on the road, allowing only one-way passing by cars. The trucks moved as slow as a squirming line. From time to time, some huge snow balls rolled down from the hills as high as five to six-storey buildings and broke the road. They had to wait for the wrecking team to come and clean up the road. A forklift was used to shovel a “snow cave” for trucks to pass through one by one. The team took 7 days to drive a distance which only needs one day in normal situations. As the food and the water that the drivers took with them could only last for one day, Rail Lhasa had to deploy an off-road vehicle to send the food and water to the drivers as an emergency.

Transport5

Even though it was extremely cold and there was a lack of food and water, none of the drivers had complained about anything. To the contrary, they did their best to help as they knew that they were doing a very special duty; they were transporting the lamps to Lumbini, where the Buddha was born, where they would be lit for the peace of the world.

 

Transport1

The transporting trucks got to deal with many challenges during the journey which made the transportation even more challenging. But thanks to all the support that was gotten the way, while it was not smooth sailing, problems encountered were all resolved successfully.

Transport6

And on 15th Janurary, 2015, the lamps arrrived in Lumbini and are all storaged in the Chinese Temple.

The rooms generally are for 4 to 5 people with a bathroom with hot water on suite.

The building has a restaurant that will serve vegetarian meals. The restaurant will be opened in January 2015.

 

Prices: Budget around US$50 per day.

Please note : These prices are not finalised. As the establishment has only recently been opened and the prices per person still need to be finalised. The establishment has said the prices will only be known in January 2015. Once the prices and the menu is finalised we will inform you accordingly.

A bus will be hired for transport from Kathmandu to Lumbini. The bus will leave Kathmandu early on the 3 March and return early on the morning of the 13 March 2015. The place of departure will be decided later and participants will be informed accordingly. The trip may take around 10 hours.

The buses seat 35 people. The cost of hiring a 35 seater bus is around US$500 (one way).  The price will be shared equally amongst the number of passengers. If passengers are less than 11 a tourist microbus can be arranged for around US$ 300 (one way). Likewise the price will be shared equally amongst the number of passengers.

Before registering, please read through the important information below.

 

Rules of Discipline

The Light meditation retreat will be held in conditions deemed to be similar as that of being in a temple. Therefore you will need to observe certain rules of discipline so that we can maintain environment conducive to inner reflection and meditation, also respecting the Sri Lankan Pilgrims Rest House as our kind host.

 

  • Respect all life: do not intentionally kill any living being, even small insects.
  • Respect others’ property: do not steal or take anything not freely given.
  • Be honest and straightforward: do not lie or intentionally deceive others.
  • Be celibate: no sexual activity.
  • Be alert and mindful: avoid intoxicants such as alcohol, drugs and cigarettes.
  • Be considerate of others’ silence: keep silence in the appropriate areas and at all times during residential courses, especially in the Gompa and the dormitories.
  • Be considerate of the monks and nuns: dress respectfully (please no shorts above the knee, tank-top shirts or tight and revealing clothing).
  • Please be gentle in your behaviour and sensitive to other retreat participants.

 

 

Etiquette in the Meditation Hall

The Tibetan word for the Meditation Hall is “Gompa”. Because a Gompa is the location of study, meditation and devotional practices, Buddhists consider them to be holy places. In Tibetan Buddhist  tradition, the following modes of behaviour are considered respectful in a Gompa and we ask you to follow them while here:

 

  • Do not point your feet towards the teachers, the altar or any holy object.
  • Do not put Dharma materials – prayer books, texts, Dharma books or notebooks with Dharma in them – on the floor, or sit or step over them.
  • Do not lie down or do any yoga exercises in the Gompa at any time.
  • No idle chat in the Gompa.

 

Thank you so much for your support.

Benefits of Making Light Offerings

The Sutra of Arya Maitreya says, “Those who offer a thousand lights or a thousand blue utpali flowers or make the pinnacle of a stupa or a holy form will be reborn when Maitreya Buddha shows the deed of gaining enlightenment and will receive his first Dharma teaching.”

v22

Offering light, in particular, is a special door of dependent arising for quickly completing the accumulation of merit and receiving great blessings. It is said in the second chapter of the Root Tantra of Chakrasamvara, who is a manifestation of Shakyamuni Buddha, “If you want sublime realizations, offer hundreds of lights.”

It is said in The Ten Wheel Sutra of the Essence of Earth (Kshitigarbha), “All comfort, happiness and peace in this world come from making offerings to the Rare Sublime Ones (the Triple Gem). Therefore, those who want comfort, happiness and peace should always try to make offerings to the Rare Sublime Ones.”

In general, all goodness in samsara and nirvana comes from making offerings to the Triple Gem, but specifically, different kinds of offerings bring you different benefits. Guru Shakyamuni Buddha, the fourth of the thousand buddhas of this fortunate eon, whose holy mind was enriched with the ten powers, announced in the Tune of Brahma Sutra Clarifying Karma that making light offerings brings you ten benefits:

  1. You become like a light in the world.
  2. You achieve (when born human) the clairvoyance of the pure flesh eye.
  3. You achieve the devas’ eye.
  4. You receive the wisdom of knowing what is virtue and what is nonvirtue.
  5. You are able to eliminate the darkness of ignorance, the concept of inherent existence.
  6. You receive the illumination of wisdom; even in samsara you never experience darkness.
  7. You receive much wealth and enjoyment.
  8. You are reborn in the deva or human realm.
  9. You quickly become liberated.
  10. You quickly attain enlightenment.

Devas or human beings who accumulate the merit of making one light offering – or even a handful of flowers – will see the fully enlightened buddha, Maitreya.

慈成加参仁波切开示阿弥陀佛的修法

shangshi c时间:2010年1月 地点:杭州的一个寺院

你们在这里学习佛法,不管是年龄大也好,年龄小也好,想解脱的人,多听闻佛法的功德是不可思议的,所以从这个角度来讲的话,我非常随喜你们。但是你们学习的过程当中,在修阿弥陀佛法的过程当中,一定要记住,成佛的条件是我们的身口意三门要清净,三门不清净而成佛的人一个也没有,三门清净了才可以成佛!

 

你们很多人念阿弥陀佛很多年,但是心里的贪嗔痴慢还没放下。不管是年龄大,还是年龄小,你心里这些不清净的垃圾要处理干净,嫉妒心、傲慢心、执着心、愚痴、昏沉、掉举、烦恼等等,都是我们往生极乐世界的障碍。往生极乐世界的人都是三门清净的人,三门不清净谁要往生极乐世界啊?三门不清净怎么配合阿弥陀佛啊? 大家都知道,念阿弥陀佛非常好,当然是好,所有的菩萨都是念佛而成佛的,但是念佛并不是只是在口头上,而是我们的心要跟阿弥陀佛学习,我们的心最终要跟阿弥陀佛融为一体。阿弥陀佛的慈悲和智慧是广大圆满的,阿弥陀佛为了度化无量无边的众生,发了四十八个愿啊!看看我们有没有爱他心?有没有慈悲心?有没有智慧?如果我们心里没有慈悲心,那念阿弥陀佛只是念一个名字。

 

我们修阿弥陀佛法门,念阿弥陀佛的时候,该具足的条件都具足了,才可以往生极乐世界啊。如果条件不具足,怎么能去啊?比如你想坐飞机的话,你有没有坐飞机的条件啊?有没有买飞机票的钱啊?有没有身份证啊?健康的身体啊?条件具足了我们才能坐飞机啊。同样的,往生极乐世界需要我们的智慧和慈悲,这些条件具足了我们才能以最快的速度往生极乐世界。 我们口里会念阿弥陀佛,但我们还是离不开轮回痛苦,这是什么原因呢?因为我们心里贪嗔痴慢的各种烦恼还没放下。阿弥陀佛是远离烦恼、远离贪嗔痴慢而得到阿弥陀佛的果位啊!所以,不管你是念佛的人也好,修密的人也好,修显宗的人也好,这些法都是释迦牟尼佛传的法。你修出来的话,结果都是一样的。你修不出来的话,每个法门都不配合你。

 

你觉得是这个法不好,那个法好,这是你自己的心不清净。如果我们的心总是和贪嗔痴慢嫉妒这些烦恼在一起的话,只是口头上念阿弥陀佛的功德,想要达到我们的解脱目的,那是很困难啊! 你们这些方面不了解,只知道口里念阿弥陀佛。你背着从无始以来到今天的那么多的业障,能去往生极乐世界吗?这些业障不忏悔、不清净,你怎么往生极乐世界啊?阿弥陀佛也是这样讲的:“前世因,后世果。善有善报,恶有恶报” ,从无始以来我们的贪嗔痴慢所做的业力不忏悔清净的话,怎么去往生极乐世界啊?我们一切的杀业、抽烟、喝酒、打妄语、吃肉的这些身口意所做的恶业,不忏悔清净,只是口里念阿弥陀佛,这样能成佛吗? 念阿弥陀佛的方式有不同啊,阿弥陀佛的力量是不可思议的,阿弥陀佛的功德是不可思议的,阿弥陀佛是我们忏悔一切业障的对象。 我们不是依靠阿弥陀佛的佛像、照片来学习的,如果我们不知道阿弥陀佛修法的次第,也不知道阿弥陀佛的功德的话,我们心里不会长时间生起对阿弥陀佛和往生极乐世界的信心的。阿弥陀佛是怎么成佛的?阿弥陀佛是从哪里开始进入佛门啊?阿弥陀佛的觉悟修了多长时间啊?最后阿弥陀佛是怎么变成一个佛的?

 

阿弥陀佛也是从一个凡夫人修成的啊,阿弥陀佛的功德是不可思议的,希望大家更多地了解阿弥陀佛修法的次第和阿弥陀佛的功德,这样念佛的话,你们的心里会有和以前不一样的感觉,会和以前不一样,所以今天这么多人来听法,我非常随喜你们。 你念阿弥陀佛的目的是什么?解脱以后你要干什么?你往生极乐世界以后干什么?我们在念阿弥陀佛的时候,是用心去念阿弥陀佛,不是口头上念。你心里到底在想什么都不知道,阿弥陀佛是什么样的颜色,你有没有观想清楚啊?阿弥陀佛的庄严像有没有观想清楚啊?阿弥陀佛的功德有没有理解?极乐世界是什么样的一个世界?往生极乐世界和我们这个人间有什么差别?我们为什么往生极乐世界?往生极乐世界以后,我们能得到什么样不同的智慧、不同的力量?这些问题我们要思维判断,要搞清楚。 并不是往生极乐世界以后,我们在那边享受啊,如果你有这种为了自己解脱的自私想法的话,那你想解脱是非常困难啊。

 

我们要想往生极乐世界,要想得到解脱的话,一定要因缘聚合,哪些因缘聚合?第一个要对阿弥陀佛有无比的信心。知道阿弥陀佛和往生极乐世界的功德以后,才能对阿弥陀佛和往生极乐世界生起信心。第二个我们要有像阿弥陀佛一样的菩提心,发四十八大愿,救度无量无边的众生。我往生极乐世界以后,再来这个轮回的苦海当中,度化跟我有同样痛苦的众生,要发这样的菩提心,度化无量无边的众生,这样我们才能得到阿弥陀佛的功德啊!所以我希望你们多了解阿弥陀佛的功德、利益和智慧、慈悲心、菩提心。 我们学佛是为了解脱,但解脱并不是说总有一天解脱了,而是从我们学习佛法的那一天开始,一年比一年心里的烦恼压力和负担减少,智慧和慈悲心扩大,这样才可以达到我们解脱的目的啊。

 

我们很多的痛苦并不是来自于外境,而是从内心所产生的问题,内心产生的痛苦要从内心当中得到解脱,所以真正的解脱是我们内心的烦恼转变到智慧,内心的贪嗔痴慢解脱了才叫解脱。我们天天念佛,天天观想佛,可是心里的烦恼没有减少,痛苦没有减少,今年心里充满了贪嗔痴慢,明年心里贪嗔痴慢还是一样多,那我们念佛有什么利益啊?我们内心的菩提心那么少,慈悲心那么少,智慧那么狭窄,怎么能往生极乐世界啊? 有觉悟的人,有智慧的人,有慈悲的人才可以去往生极乐世界啊。问问自己有没有具足往生极乐世界的条件啊?如果没有具足条件的话,那你还要补充一些条件,补充一些能量。 你们念经的时候,拜佛的时候,先要看清楚自己的心,你的心在做什么,你念经拜佛的目的是什么?

 

我们作为一个修行人,每一天都要观察自己的心,早上起来到晚上睡觉之前,一定要观察自己的身口意所做的对不对?如果你所作所为真正是为了众生,你为众生拜佛念经的话,那不管怎样,你所修的都是菩提心,你做的都是跟阿弥陀佛有关的修法,因为阿弥陀佛是为了众生成佛的,我们也是为了众生成佛的;如果你是为了自己一个人解脱,那就与阿弥陀佛不相合,因为阿弥陀佛是为众生成佛的,而你是为了自己成佛的,这是相反的!阿弥陀佛是为了众生成佛的,而你是为了自己成佛的,那就是不一样啊,功德也不一样,智慧也不一样,你的发心和愿力也不一样,那你未来得到的结果也跟阿弥陀佛不一样!所以大家要详细观察自己的心相续。 我们修法的时候要调伏自己的心,要发慈悲心啊,没有慈悲心,怎么变成阿弥陀佛啊?很多人心里一点慈悲心都没有,一点智慧都没有,还说“我就要修阿弥陀佛”,阿弥陀佛是慈悲和智慧双运的一个境界啊。如果你想跟阿弥陀佛学习的话,你就要让自己的慈悲心每一天都增长,智慧扩大,你的心越来越宽容的话,那你跟阿弥陀佛差不多快一样了。但是如果你自私自利的想法越来越强,你的态度越来越不可思议的恶劣,你的烦恼越来越多,分别心越来越重,对上师三宝没有信心,没有恭敬心、没有清净心,这样的话,你就是怎么念都不可能变成阿弥陀佛,这是不可能的事情啊。

 

所有的事情都是因缘聚合所产生的,哪一个因缘不聚合,都不可能变成阿弥陀佛一样的。 变成阿弥陀佛需要什么样的条件呢?第一个发菩提心,阿弥陀佛修法的最根本—先要发菩提心。什么叫发菩提心呢?为了度化无量无边的众生念佛、供灯、供香、供水、放生等等,做善业,这是阿弥陀佛修法的第一个条件。 第二个阿弥陀佛修法不能缺少的条件是什么呢?就是正行要心清净,用清净的心来念阿弥陀佛,用清净的心来供灯、供水、供香等。 第三个阿弥陀佛修法不能缺少的条件是什么呢?我们用菩提心、清净心做了佛法的善业,念佛、磕头、供灯、供水、供香、放生等等善业,因为你有菩提心、清净心的缘故,你的这些修法有不可思议的功德,这些功德要做一个回向。你要把这些功德回向给一切众生往生极乐世界,并且念颂回向文。 这叫发心、正行、回向的三殊胜。念佛的人,如果这三个条件具足的话,你不想往生极乐世界,也自然而然往生极乐世界,你不想成佛,也是自然而然成佛!为什么呢?因为你该具足的条件都具足了,这些条件就是菩提心、清净心、回向一切众生往生极乐世界,所以这是最简单的、最直接、最快速的往生极乐世界的方法。 如果这三个条件不具足的话,你修密的人也好,修净土的也好,都不可能成佛的。如果这三个条件具足的话,你修任何法门,都可以得到往生极乐世界和阿弥陀佛的果位。 祈祷上师三宝、念佛、供灯、供花、供香、供水、放生等等,这些是修法的一部分,不是全部,最重要的还是要在自己的心上下功夫,做任何一种修法都要具足发菩提心、清净心、回向一切众生往生极乐世界。如果这三个条件具足的话,你不想解脱也自然会解脱。 这是今天三殊胜简单的开示,希望对你们有帮助,希望你们有更多的人明白修法的道理,然后再按次第精进修法,这样是非常圆满的。希望大家早日可以圆满觉悟,早日可以往生极乐世界!阿弥陀佛!
