簡繁轉換 - 繁體

前行
陳供如常。 
頂禮三拜。

一、發心

合掌虔念:

邪說暴行正猖狂,生態環境已失常;
眾生活命少安穩,魔障心病屢屢生。
有情漂流苦海中,業障煩惱拖累深;
安生修行缺保障,惟仰護法保全恩。
個業共業交相織,無從單求一己安;
整體悲懷契佛慈,為眾修軌離障難!

願一切眾生具樂及樂因!
願一切眾生離苦及苦因!
願一切眾生不離無苦之樂!
願一切眾生遠離分別愛憎住平等捨!

願一切眾生早日成佛!

二、觀空

結定印,默念三遍:

萬法皆緣成,相依而共存;
捨對立分別,現一體本淨。

觀想全法界回歸本來清淨,而呈現為無有邊限之天藍色光明。

三、整體

觀想於此藍色光明中出現全法界之四聖六凡。

行者之父母分居其右、左兩側。前為歷世之冤親,後為六道眾生。六道中最需救助之地獄眾生緊隨行者之後,然後依序為餓鬼道、畜生道、人道、阿修羅道、天道之一切眾生。所有眾生皆與行者同一面向。

行者前方之空中則為一切諸佛、菩薩、聲聞、緣覺、護法等聖眾。六臂瑪哈嘎拉居於正中,千手千眼觀音安住其上空;彼等為所有其他佛、菩薩及聖眾,層層環繞。所有聖眾皆慈憫顧視六道眾生。

四、皈依

合掌虔念三遍,並觀想一切眾生皆仰望空中之千手千眼觀音,而合聲齊念:

本來清淨陳祖師 金剛蓮華林上師 
文殊觀音正法脈 智悲融通傳十方

皈依金剛上師
皈依觀音菩薩
皈依圓融佛法
皈依菩提聖眾

觀想一切聖眾皆因眾生能明辨及抉擇解脫之道而感到欣慰,並由千手千眼觀音代表一切聖眾攝受眾生之皈依。千手千眼觀音從心輪放出鮮明藍光照臨每一眾生,為彼消業、除障、培福、長養菩提。然後此鮮明藍光即進住每一眾生心中,大小如一燭焰,永遠閃耀菩提光芒,照明菩提正道。

五、供奉

觀想一切有情皆欣喜參預廣大長遠之供奉,並與行者合聲齊念:

遍法界珍寶,傾明行證德,離惜遺供獻;
乞慈憫攝受,演妙法善巧,無疏漏救渡。

寂靜八苦平等功德水 寂靜貪著本具童瓶花
寂靜戒犯唯一任運香 寂靜無明光照四方燈
寂靜五毒無取捨塗香 寂靜貧乏無增減食子
寂靜八風無戲論音樂 供已罪淨心明離諸障

觀想一切聖眾皆因此等供奉純粹基於菩提心而欣喜接納、受用。一切聖眾皆得圓滿之受用。一切聖眾放五色光(藍、白、黃、紅、綠)充遍法界,加持一切眾生。然後,千手千眼觀音及六臂瑪哈嘎拉以外之一切聖眾皆化光進入千手千眼觀音,千手千眼觀音再化光降頂進入六臂瑪哈嘎拉心中。

六、讚頌

觀想六道眾生合聲齊念;行者傾忱念誦,並可加用鈴、鼓、引磬、木魚等:

千手千眼不過一心一意救苦難
大慈大悲自然千變萬化渡眾生

彌陀頂嚴示無二 憫眾頭裂悲甚深
千處祈救千處應 千手觀音前頂禮
忿容俯視眾心魔 正見威震除我執
慈悲喜捨降四魔 千手觀音前頂禮
九面三層渡三界 一體三面智悲力
千手千眼方便廣 千手觀音前頂禮
六道眾苦無止歇 渴求慈祐賜解脫
無盡慈悲未暫捨 千手觀音前頂禮

大黑天尊光焰照,十方有情息魔障!
大黑天尊怒吼傳,三世得聞心病消!
大黑天尊恆憶念,雖陷障難得安穩!
大黑天尊是依怙,行者修途恆平坦!

六道眾苦 六方佛慈 六臂悉擔荷
觀音大悲 普度大慈 大力能開顯
堅貞不移 遇難益彰 如黑蓋餘色
不請自臨 唯法是問 佛子真依怙

慈憫眾生護正法 呵護心切真情露
恨不一舉滅盡魔 那顧忿容嚇壞人
怒目圓睜髮衝冠 血口獠牙吞群邪
若見表相非真相 方悟怒容出婆心

觀想六臂瑪哈嘎拉於聆讚後,因行者及眾生之正信而大為歡喜。六臂瑪哈嘎拉由心輪放出鮮明藍光,充遍法界,加持一切眾生,令得消業免障,身心安穩。六臂瑪哈嘎拉隨即以甘露灑淨眾生之身、語、意業,並賜飲甘露以增長眾生的壽命及慧命。

七、祈請

觀想六道眾生合聲齊念;行者傾忱念誦祈請:

行深般若度一切苦厄
萬法本淨觀音入深寂
智悲圓融循聲救苦難
三十二應解眾生愚迷

千處祈求千處應 苦海常作渡人舟
百回呼救百回允 迷途屢充指路燈

世變日岌,安寧日減,眾生命脆危;慈目豈無睹?
邪說叢生,暴亂橫行,修行近奢談;悲心寧不憫?
觀音悲心,諸佛慈髓,化度遍法界;唯尊是依怙!
世界和平,有情康樂,佛子達證悟;願尊垂救護!

觀想六臂瑪哈嘎拉於聆此祈請後,因行者及眾生之正信而大為歡喜。六臂瑪哈嘎拉由心輪放出鮮明藍光,充遍法界,加持一切眾生,令得消業免障,身心安穩。六臂瑪哈嘎拉隨即以甘露灑淨眾生之身、語、意業,並賜飲甘露以增長眾生的壽命及慧命。

八、持咒

南無耶拉喳亞亞 南無阿亞嘎拉桑嘎呀 毗盧喳拉 卜哈拉喳亞 達他嘎達亞 南無薩哇達他嘎他悲 阿哈得悲 桑亞嘎桑卜得悲 南無阿亞阿瓦羅鴿悲 蝦亞亞 菩提薩埵亞 嘛哈薩埵亞 嘛哈嘎魯尼嘎亞 達亞塔 嗡 達拉達拉 地唎地唎 度盧度盧 以札位札 雜擂雜擂 雜雜擂雜雜擂 姑訴昧姑訴昧 瓦擂 以唎密唎 之地雜拉 馬巴拉也 娑哈

嗡 班札巴尼 吽 呸

Six-arm Mahakala Expulsion Ritual

Reverently Compiled by Guru Yutang Lin

 

Preliminaries
Arrange offerings as usual. 
Do prostrations three times.

1. Motivation

Fold palms together and sincerely recite:

Perverse views and violent activities are running wild,
Ecology on Earth has lost its normal balance and rhythm;
Sentient beings are living in lack of peace and security,
Evil hindrances and mental illnesses are erupting frequently.
Sentient beings are drifting in the ocean of suffering,
Karmic hindrances and sorrows are dragging beings down deep;
Peaceful living and Dharma practices lack warranty in stability,
We can only rely on Mahakala′s grace in securing safety.
Personal karma is intertwined with common karma,
No way to seek merely individual well-being and peace;
Compassion for all beings matches Buddha′s mercy,
Practicing this ritual for all beings will surely free us from hindrances!

May all beings have happiness and its causes!
May all beings be free from suffering and its causes!
May all beings enjoy the fruits of Dharma which are beyond suffering!
May all beings abide in the equanimity which renounces all worldly discriminations!

May all beings attain Enlightenment soon!

2. Original Purity

Rest the hands in Dhyana mudra, and silently recite three times:

All things are conditional phenomena,
Mutually dependent and coexistent;
Renouncing antagonistic discriminations,
All appear as original purity in oneness.

Visualize the whole Dharmadhatu return to original purity, and appear as boundless sky-blue light.

3. Totality

Visualize that all the four classes of saints and the six realms of sentient beings appear from this blue light.

Visualize that one's father and mother are to the right and left side, all beings related to one through past karma to the front, and the rest of the sentient beings behind. Among the six realms of sentient beings behind one, those in hells who need salvation most are closest to one, then are the other beings in the order of hungry ghosts, animals, humans, asuras, and finally the heavenly beings. All sentient beings are facing the same direction as the practitioner.

Visualize that in the space in front of the practitioner are all the holy beings: Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Arahats, Pratyeka-Buddhas, Dharma Protectors, etc. At the center is Six-arm Mahakala, with Thousand-hand Thousand-eye Guan Yin presiding in the space above him; they are surrounded by layers after layers of all the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and holy beings. All holy beings, with great compassion, look attentively at all the sentient beings below.

4. Taking Refuge

Fold palms together and sincerely recite three times the following refuge formula while visualizing that all sentient beings are gazing with admiration at Thousand-hand Thousand-eye Guan Yin in the sky and recite together in unison:

Original Purity, oh, Patriarch Guru Chen!
Vajra Lotus, oh, Guru Lin!
The Right Dharma lineage of Manjusri and Guan Yin,
Harmonized wisdom and compassion to spread everywhere!

I take refuge in the Vajra Guru.
I take refuge in Bodhisattva Guan Yin.
I take refuge in harmonious Buddha Dharma.
I take refuge in holy beings of Bodhi.

Visualize that all holy beings are rejoicing over sentient beings' ability to recognize and choose the path toward liberation. Thousand-hand Thousand-eye Guan Yin, on behalf of all holy beings, grants refuge to all sentient beings. From the heart chakra of Thousand-hand Thousand-eye Guan Yin rays of bright blue light radiate forth to each and every sentient being. In this way each sentient being's bad karma is eradicated, merits increased, and Bodhicitta nurtured. This ray of bright blue light then stays, like a candle flame, in the heart of the sentient being, shines forth the light of Bodhi, and sheds light on the right path of Bodhi forever.

5. Offering

Visualize that all sentient beings take delight in participating in the making of extensive and long-term offerings and donations, and that they join the practitioner in reciting in unison the following stanza:

Filling the whole Dharmadhatu with treasures,
Pouring all attainments of the wisdom path,
Offered without reluctance nor omission;

Beg to accept out of compassion and empathy,
Exhibit skillful display of the wondrous Dharma,
Salvage beings without neglect nor omission.

With water of merits and equality to pacify eight kinds of suffering,
With innate virgin-vase flowers to pacify greed and attachment,
With the aimless incense of oneness to pacify violation of silas,
With the lamp that shines in all directions to pacify the darkness of ignorance,
With the perfume of non-preference to pacify the five poisons,
With the food of neither increasing nor decreasing to pacify poverty,
With the music of no playful talks to pacify the eight worldly winds,
After offering all these, sins are purified and mind is clear and free from all hindrances.

Visualize that all holy beings are delighted by the Bodhicitta which is the pure motivation underlying these offerings, and therefore gladly accept and enjoy the offerings. Each and every holy being obtains complete enjoyment of all sorts. All holy beings emit lights in blue, white, yellow, red and green color that enlighten the whole Dharmadhatu and give blessings to all sentient beings. Then all holy beings, other than Thousand-hand Thousand-eye Guan Yin and Six-arm Mahakala, transform into lights and merge into the Thousand-hand Thousand-eye Guan Yin. And then Thousand-hand Thousand-eye Guan Yin also transforms into light that descends through the top of Six-arm Mahakala and merges into Six-arm Mahakala's heart chakra.

6. Praise

Recite with ardent devotion and may use accompanying Dharma instruments such as bell, drum, inverted bell (Yin Qing) and wooden fish; visualize that all sentient beings join the practitioner in ardently reciting in unison the following praise:

Thousand hands with thousand eyes yet only one mind and one intention to save beings from sufferings
Great mercy and great compassion naturally transform into myriads forms and ways to convert beings

Amitabha Buddha atop to indicate non-duality,
Profound compassion caused head to split into many,
Supplications from thousand places all got responded,
We prostrate to the Thousand-arm Guan Yin!
Wrathful countenance looking down at evils in our minds,
The power of right view scatters away grasping to a self,
Mercy, compassion, joy and renunciation pacified all evils,
We prostrate to the Thousand-arm Guan Yin!

Nine faces at three levels to save beings in the Three Realms,
Three facets as embodiment of wisdom, compassion and power,
Thousand arms with thousand eyes to carry out boundless salvation,
We prostrate to the Thousand-arm Guan Yin!

Sufferings of beings in the Six Realms are incessant,
We are desperate for liberation through your graceful salvation,
Endless compassion has never forsaken any being for a second,
We prostrate to the Thousand-arm Guan Yin!

Six-arm Mahakala emits ferocious rays of blue lights,
Minds of sentient beings in all directions are free from evil hindrances!
Six-arm Mahakala enunciates thunderous roars,
Sentient beings at all times are emancipated from mental illnesses!
Six-arm Mahakala always remembered,
Even trapped in pressures of infliction one remains intact and safe!
Six-arm Mahakala is the savior,
All Dharma practitioners advance on an even path toward enlightenment!

Suffering of beings in the six realms
Compassion of Buddhas in the six directions
Are all loaded upon your capable six arms
Great compassion of Guan Yin
Great mercy of universal salvation
Great power capable of their realization
Solid virtue unmovable
More obvious in the face of obstacles
Like black covering all remaining colors
Arrived without being supplicated
Dharma is your only concern
Real refuge of Buddha's offspring you are

Out of compassion for sentient beings, protecting the right Dharma
Eager to safeguard and protect, real feelings revealed
Hating not to exterminate all demons at one stroke
In spite of wrathful appearance that would scare people off
Angry eyes wide open, hairs shooting up
Bloody mouth with sharp fangs, swallowing all devils
If one sees appearances as not the real situation
Only then will one comprehend that angry face was born of caring heart

Visualize that Six-arm Mahakala, upon hearing this praise, is very pleased by the right faith of the practitioner and the sentient beings. Then Six-arm Mahakala emits bright blue lights from his heart chakra shining through the whole Dharmadhatu and giving blessings to all sentient beings so that their karmic debts and hindrances are eradicated, and their body and mind remain in tranquility and ease. Then Six-arm Mahakala sprinkles showers of nectar upon sentient beings to purify their karma of body, speech and mind. The nectar is also granted for sentient beings to drink in order to nourish their wisdom and expand their lifespan.


7. Supplication

Visualize that all sentient beings join the practitioner in ardently reciting in unison the following supplication:

Practicing deep wisdom of Blank Essence, and thereby transcending all sufferings.
All things being originally pure, observing sounds to enter deep tranquility.
Wisdom and compassion in harmony, retracing sounds to save beings from dangers.
Applying thirty-two kinds of responses to resolve sentient beings' ignorant grasping.

Thousand places praying got responses in all thousand places
Constantly serving as life-saver boat in the ocean of suffering
Hundred times calling for help got consents all hundred times
Repeatedly serving as path-finding lamp on disoriented routes

Situations in the world are daily becoming more dangerous, and peace and safety are shrinking daily, so sentient beings' lives are fragile and endangered; could it be that your merciful eyes have not noticed these?

Perverse views are in abundance everywhere, violence and turmoil are flowing out of bounds, engaging in Dharma practices had become almost like a luxurious talk; could it be that your compassionate mind has not felt pity for these?

Born of Guan Yin's compassionate mind, as marrow of the loving-kindness of all Buddhas, your salvation activities spread throughout the entire Dharmadhatu; Six-arm Mahakala, only you are our refuge and protector!

All realms in perpetual peace and harmony, sentient beings enjoy good health and happiness, and Dharma practitioners attain full enlightenment; Six-arm Mahakala, may you grant us your protection and salvation!

Visualize that Six-arm Mahakala, upon hearing this supplication, is very pleased by the right faith of the practitioner and the sentient beings. Six-arm Mahakala emits bright blue lights from his heart chakra shining through the whole Dharmadhatu and giving blessings to all sentient beings so that their karmic debts and hindrances are eradicated, and their body and mind remain in tranquility and ease. Then Six-arm Mahakala sprinkles showers of nectar upon sentient beings to purify their karma of body, speech and mind. The nectar is also granted for sentient beings to drink in order to nourish their wisdom and expand their lifespan.

8. Recitation of Mantras

Na Mo Ye La Zha Ya Ya, Na Mo A Ya Ga La Sang Ga Ya, Pi Lu Zha La, Bu Ha La Zha Ya, Da Ta Ga Da Ya, Na Mo Sa Wa Da Ta Ga Ta Bei, A Ha Die Bei, Sang Ya Ga Sang Bu De Bei, Na Mo A Ya A Wa Lo Ge Bei, Xia Ya Ya, Pu Ti Sa Duo Ya, Ma Ha Sa Duo Ya, Ma Ha Ga Lu Ni Ga Ya, Da Ya Ta, Weng, Da La Da La, Di Li Di Li, Du Lu Du Lu, Yi Zha Wi Zha, Za Lei Za Lei, Za Za Lei Za Za Lei, Ku Su Mei Ku Su Mei, Wa Lei, Yi Li Mi Li, Zhi Di Za La, Ma Ba La Ye, Suo Ha
Weng Ma Ni Bei Mi Hong

Weng Ban Zha Ba Ni Hong Pei

Weng Ban Zha Ma Ha Ka La Qin Qi Zha Bin Ge Lang Pi Lu Ya Ga Hong Hong Pei Suo Ha

Weng A Hong Ma Qiu Ye Suo Ha

Visualize that Guru and Six-arm Mahakala are inseparable and non-differentiable, and during the period of this mantras recitation, from the heart chakra of Guru bright blue lights emit to bless all sentient beings in the whole Dharmadhatu so that their karmic debts and hindrances are eradicated, and their body and mind remain in tranquility and ease. Upon being shed by the Buddha light, sentient beings' body and mind both purified, their roots for cultivation of merits and wisdom grow, and their minds are fully opened up to enjoy the joy of Dharma; all sentient beings in the worldly realms become tolerant and helpful to one another, and they all share peace and happiness.

9. Supplication for Lineage Blessings

Supplication to the Refuge Tree of the Dharma Lineage of Adi Buddha Mandala  

Amid limitless oneness of original purity
Father and Mother in union, Adi Buddha appears
Harmony of wisdom and compassion
The wondrous image represents Dharmakaya
As the flow of Dharma spreads naturally
The whole Dharmadhatu is blessed through conversion

To liberate all suffering beings from transmigration in the six realms
Sakyamuni Buddha founded the Dharma teachings
Tantric teachings without peers well established in the snow land
The source of such grace is the rainbow-body Padmasambhava

Offered body to Guru, the unsurpassable mother of great pleasure
Mandarava set example to reveal profound teachings
Compiled biography and essential teachings of Guru Rinpoche
Yeshe Tsogyal spread and continued the Tantric teachings

Root Gurus of the founder of our Dharma lineage are three holy ones
Nona Tulku revealed to Guru Chen the Great Perfection
Patriarch Gangkar transmitted Four Seals through great initiations
Patriarch Papong Khyentse bestowed over five hundred initiations

Patriarch Chen, Manjusri of Original Purity
Harmonized Sutrayana and Tantrayana to propound the three-yanas-in-one
Accomplished in austerity and attainment that are rare over the ages
Compassionately stays in this suffering world just to save all beings
Guru Lin, Guan Yin of Vajra Lotus
Expressed profound teachings in simple words
Widely expounded the essence of many Dharma teachings
Through Dharma services of all sorts
Spreading the teachings to the East and the West
Continuation and sustenance of the golden teachings
Of our lineage rest squarely on his shoulders

Taking care of all details is the grace of our lineage protectors
Leading us all the way is the Wei Tuo Bodhisattva
Arranging matters ahead depends on Heavenly King Vaisravana
Trusting with all matters relies on the Dragon King of Pacific Ocean

Oath-bound blacksmith, the Honorable Damchen Dorje Legpa
Holding up this root of Tantra just as he protected Guru Rinpoche
Just and loyal Guan Gong, the great protector of monasteries
Continue to display your loyalty by removing hindrances to the lineage

Establishment of our lineage is simply for salvation of suffering beings
Continuation of our lineage all depends on the blessing of these holy ones
Through taking refuge in our lineage we merge into Bodhicitta
We spread teachings of our lineage to convert suffering beings
And in their salvation, is our reward to the profound compassionate grace

A Prayer for Yogi Chen's Blessings

Prostration to all refuges of the great grace lineage 
As unified in Patriarch Chen, a personification of Manjusri. 
Pray the faithful ones be blessed with wishes fulfilled; 
May they from suffering depart and happiness gain, 
Forever merits accumulate and wisdom grow.

Prostration to all refuges of the great grace lineage 
As unified in Patriarch Chen, a personification of Manjusri. 
Pray the Dakinis be blessed with peace and stability; 
May they from suffering depart and happiness gain, 
Soon merits accumulate and wisdom grow to fulfillment.

Supplication to Guru Lin for Blessing

Prostration to all refuges of the great grace lineage
As unified in Guru Lin, a personification of Guan Yin
Grant me realization of original purity of greed as it arises
Bless me to attain unity of clarity and selfless nature of joy 
Abiding in rainbow body to extend salvation upon suitable vessels
Revealing wondrous teachings to save all beings in the six realms
Supplication to Bodhisattva Wei-Tuo

Protector of Buddha Dharma, a great knight, 
Followed by the Four Cardinal Heavenly Kings, 
Worshipped in all Chinese monasteries, 
Help spread holy Dharma with all your might!

You hold practitioners to be your children, 
Always give timely encouragement and provision. 
Just as you helped Guru Yogi Chen all the way, 
Please keep me in your favor to benefit all!

Praise to the Dragon King

The compassion of Dragon King's mind is deeper than oceans; 
Rain and dew drops showered everywhere to moisten the world. 
Receiving vase offerings to promote aspirations toward Bodhi, 
Sentient beings with lucky connections are all blessed by thy grace.

Supplication to the Dragon King

Dragon King and Dragon Queen sustained compassion profound.
Spreading and propagating the Dharma, they took care of chores.
Without overlooking matters major or minor, they guarded well.
Their grace spread the world over, and their virtuous favors last!

10. Dedication of Merits

Evil inflictions and mental illnesses hinder progress on the enlightenment path
All due to lack of comprehension that grasping to self need to be let go
Sentient beings lack the power to free themselves from worldly sufferings
They are trapped deep in past karmas and habitual tendencies
We can only rely on the power of Guan Yin’s great compassion
And the grace of Six-arm Mahakala in carrying out salvation activities
Six arms crush all hindrances and devils in all six realms
To render the whole Dharmadhatu in peace and the Sun of Dharma shines

1. May virtuous gurus remain with us and those departed return soon! 
2. May perverse views and violence soon become extinct and Dharma spread without hindrance!
3. May all beings proceed diligently on the path and achieve Buddhahood before death! 
4. May all beings develop Great Compassion and never regress until they reach perfect Buddhahood!
5. May all beings develop Great Wisdom and never regress until they reach perfect Buddhahood! 

Longevity prayer for Guru Lin

Oh, originally pure yogi you are!
Wonderful conversion through Ewam as the Lotus-born Guru; 
The great joy in Sunyata is peerless,
May the Holy Guru live long and abide in this world!

Supplication to Guru Lin for Long Stay in the World and Everlasting Turning of the Dharma Wheel

Tantric teachings of Guru Rinpoche rely on Your Reverence to pass on,
Wisdom lamp of Manjusri rely on Your Reverence to continue shinning,
Marrow of Tang Tantras rely on Your Reverence to reveal and explicate,
Please stay long in this world to benefit all with your salvation activities!

Ever Spreading of the Lineage

Marrow of the Right Dharma passed down from generation to generation,
Succeeding predecessors and leading followers to turn the Dharma Wheel,
Everlasting pure lineage guided by holy Gurus and guarded by Protectors,
A never-ending lamp shining through everywhere to enlighten all beings!
