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!

The 1st annual International Gyalwai Nyugu Association retreatIGNA首届闭关禅修

1st IGNA retreat2The first annual International Gyalwai Nyugu Association (IGNA) retreat was held in Marbella, Spain from the 10th March until the 16th March 2014. The participants were truly fortunate to receive teachings and a Chenrezig  empowerment from Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche during the 7 day retreat. Participants came from Canada, China, France, Germany, Morocco,  Russia,  Singapore, South Africa and Sweden. The retreat catered for the practice needs of people from all walks of life, Buddhists and non Buddhists.

 

Before sunrise (sunrise was around 07:40)

The retreat got of to a bright and early 5.00 am start on the first day. Or should i say, not bright yet, but early start anyway. At 5.00am Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche transmitted the 8 precepts. He then proceeded to teach until around 08.00am.  Some participants took the 8 precepts for one day, others took the precepts for two days.The 8 Precepts were transmitted every morning at 5.00am for 6 of the 7 retreat days  and teachings given thereafter by Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche. Followed by a session of Guru Yoga. Thereafter  all the participants continued  with their own practices, which consisted of prostrations, reciting mantras or doing their own individual Guru Yoga sessions.

Meals

Breakfast for those taking the 8 Precepts consisted of a cup of Tsampa soup. Apart from the tsampa soup in the morning,  lunch was the main meal. More than 90% of the retreatants did  not eat evening meals. The lunches were prepared in pairs by different participants. The result was that lunch presented cuisine made from participants all over the world. Good enough even to  tempt some to ’break their silence’.

1st IGNA retreatMid morning and afternoon sessions

Mid morning teachings were given by Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche. These teachings were on the priceless  37 Practices of a Bodhisattva composed by Ngulchu Gyalsas Thogmed Zangpo

The afternoon sessions were mixed. Some days there were teachings, some days participants carried on with their own specific practices, and on two afternoons participants went down to the beach. A stroll along the beach, the sound of the breaking waves is conducive to walking meditation practices.

The teachings of the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva followed a general frame work. Within the framework were teachings on the theory of the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, and how to put the teachings into practice. Putting the theory of the teachings into practice is vitally important. As Rinpoche  explained by means of one example  ”It is like learning to play golf. At first the golf trainer instructs you on your posture, the correct swing and how to hit the ball. After receiving these instructions you still need to be able put the instrctions into practice. Just because you have received the instructions it does not mean that you will automatically become a good golfer. You have to first practice the instructions. And while practicing you have to ensure you don’t develop incorrect habits that will also affect your skill and ability to play. So you understand that it is important that you continue to receive instructions from the trainer until you have perfected your game of golf. Similarly, when learning the Dharma after receiving the teachings, you need to put the teachings into practice and incorporate the teachings into your daily life. Likewise you should regularly consult your Lama to ensure that your practice is improving and that you have not developed any negative habits. ”

1st IGNA retreat3We were even fortunate enough to experience practicing theory first hand. Just as the text appeared for  verse twelve which states  ”if someone, under the power of strong desire, robs or forces others to steal all ones belongings, …..” One session, when everyone was away from the retreat center, a few things were misappropriated. When this was reported to Rinpoche, he smiled and said ”We should rejoice. Not only did we not have to cling to these items any more,  we have also repaid some karma. We should make mental offerings to the person who took the items, that they may truly enjoy and benefit from all the items that they misappropriated”  If someone asks what is enlightened attitude? I would answer that this is the attitude of  enlightenment.

Teachings continued to verse 13 of the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva.

According to the sutras, if you were to kill someone, you would have to repay 500 lives. If you found yourself in a situation in which you were to contemplate killing someone for any host of premeditated reasons. Bearing this in mind, the choice of suffering this life, or suffering 500 future lives, what choice would you make?

We have another 24 verses to look forward to at the 2nd IGNA Annual Retreat.

Evening sessions

Phowa was taught in the evening. Phowa is a special practice that is of great assistance to practitioners especially at the time of their death.

On one of the evenings, Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche introduced a discussion regarding what was understood by ’perception’. Just this one word brought about a rivoting two hour debate between all the retreatants.  I guess it just goes to show that how we perceive the world definitely depends on ’our perception’.

When asked how our inherent nature was compassion. Rinpoche responded that by knowing our inherent nature, we would not act in ways that hurt, or upset others. This is in itself a great act of compassion.

Empowerments

1st IGNA retreat4The last evening Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche, on the auspicious ’day of miracles’ , gave the four arm Chenrezig  which ended at around 03.00am on the morning of the 17th.

We are all  truly grateful to Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche for his selfless efforts and teachings. Wisdom gained from attending and receiving live teachings is so different to gaining wisdom from reading books. In a sense it could be compared to learning a language from a professional personal tutor as opposed to trying to learning from a language book.

It was especially rewarding to witness the transformation, from the first day to the last day,  evident amongst all the retreat participants. Not only had everyone shed ’a few kilo’s’,  more remarkable was the positive transformation visible in everyone.
