頂石救佛

林鈺堂

簡繁轉換 - 繁體

巨石飛來以頭頂,不懼傷亡護佛陀!
若非無我珍慧命,豈能應變不顧身?

 

每日皆以清水敬沐毗沙門天王塑像之頭頂,以示對彼當年為護佛陀,應變而以頭頂開魔所擲來之巨石,因之後遺之傷痛,加以撫慰,藉表敬重及申願效法。如斯已行之多年矣!

今日在做日課時,持彼長咒,細思此事蹟,更增領會;不由造讚,詠嘆聖德!

Saving Buddha by a Header

Yutang Lin

As a huge rock flew toward Buddha, Vaisravana made a header;
To protect the Buddha, he is fearless about his own hurt or death.
Unless one is selfless and treasures Wisdom Life,
How could one respond to emergency in disregard to one’s own body?

 

Comment:

Daily I rinse the top of a small statue of the Heavenly King Vaisravana with clean water to comfort his headache left over from his brave deed when he made a header against a huge rock which was thrown toward Buddha by a devil. And thereby to pay respect to Him and to express a wish to follow his example. In this way I have practiced for years already.

Today during my daily recitation of mantras, while reciting his long mantra I thought of this great deed of his and gained deeper appreciation of its significance, and hence, I couldn′t help but to compose this praise to express my admiration to his holy characters!
