準提菩薩

在中國佛教徒的心目中,準提菩薩是一位感應甚強,對崇敬者至為關懷的大菩薩,他的福德、智慧無量。他是一位千祈千應的大悲聖者,他隨緣化現濟度眾生,滿足世間、出世間的一切願求,展現出最深摯的護佑。

在《佛說七俱胝佛母心大准提陀羅尼經》中說,佛陀在舍衛國祇樹給孤獨園時,思惟觀察,愍念未來諸眾生的緣故,而宣說「七俱胝佛母心准提陀羅尼法」,這也就是佛教徒經常誦持的「準提咒」。

《准提陀羅尼經》

而在《准提陀羅尼經》中記載,佛陀為了悲念未來的薄福惡業眾生,所以入於準提三摩地,宣說過去七俱脈佛所說的準提咒。

修學準提咒並沒有任何限制,不分任何身分者,都可以修學誦持的。此神咒最適合在家修行、或一般大眾來持誦,因為修持此咒不必吃素戒葷食,夫妻也不必分房來戒色,依此也可看出準提菩薩的慈悲,和因應廣大眾生的在人世間的需求。

【神咒之王的準提神咒】

稱為神咒之王的「準提神咒」,其加持威力不可思議,他的感應甚為疾速與強大。持誦者可祈求聰明智慧。辯論勝利、夫婦相互敬愛、使他人生起敬愛、增進人際關係。求得子嗣、延長壽命、治療疾病,滅除罪業、祈求降雨、脫離拘禁,遠離惡鬼惡賊之難……等等,種種的祈願,無不滿足。準提菩薩為三世諸佛之母,他的福德智慧無量,感應至深,滿足眾生間、出世間的願望,功德廣大,無微不至的守護眾生。

Green Tara

In Tibetan Buddhism, om tare tuttare ture soha is an ancient mantra that is related to Tara, the “Mother of all Buddhas,” and especially to her manifestation as Green Tara.

Green Tara

Tara, who Tibetans also call Dolma, is commonly thought to be a Bodhisattva or Buddha of compassion and action, a protector who comes to our aid to relieve us of physical, emotional and spiritual suffering.

Tara has 21 major forms, each of which has a different color and spiritual attribute.

Of these 21 forms, two are especially popular among Tibetan people — White Tara, who is associated with compassion and long life, and Green Tara, who is associated with enlightened activity and abundance.

We usually think of om tare tuttare ture soha as Green Tara’s mantra, although sometimes it is used as the main mantra for all the Tara’s.

Green Tara Mantra

Tibetans love to pray and recite mantras, and the Green Tara mantra is one of the main three or four mantras that we say to help ourselves and others.

Basically, any mantra is “a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of ‘creating transformation.’ To better understand the Green Tara mantra, let’s first talk a little about who Green Tara is, and then look at the deeper meaning of the mantra.

Green Tara: Compassion in Action

As we see in the image above, Green Tara is usually depicted as a compassionate being ready to step down from her lotus throne to offer comfort and protection from all of the sufferings we experience in the world.

She is shown “in a posture of ease and readiness for action. While her left leg is folded in the contemplative position, her right leg is outstretched, ready to spring into action. Green Tara’s left hand is in the refuge-granting mudra (gesture); her right hand makes the boon-granting [giving] gesture. In her hands she also holds closed blue lotuses (utpalas), which symbolize purity and power.”


The First Dalai Lama’s Teachings on Tara

The first Dalai Lama wrote that we can call on her to instantly save us from eight particular dangers, each of which represents a corresponding human mental problem:

  • lions — pride
  • wild elephants — delusion and ignorance
  • forest fires — hatred
  • snakes — jealousy
  • robbers — wrong views, including fanatical views
  • prisons — greed and miserliness
  • floods — desire and attachment
  • demons — doubts caused by delusion

Ordinary Tibetans pray to her when we are sick, when leaving for a long journey, or when we hope for success or wealth. His Holiness’ teaching shows us that this is not actually the true purpose of praying to or reciting mantras to Tara.

When we chant the Green Tara mantra, we are not simply asking for Tara’s blessings and help with our lives and our “real world” problems.

Actually, we are also asking to be liberated from the misery of the mental delusions and negative emotions that blind us to true freedom, and to achieve the same enlightened body, speech and mind that Tara represents, not only for our own benefit, but for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Meaning of the Green Tara Mantra

A 1987 teaching by Lama Zopa Rinpoche really opens up to us the profound meaning and benefits of practicing Tara’s powerful mantra.  Lama Zopa walks us through the mantra in a long discussion on Tara, which we have excerpted and shortened below:

  • In short, om tare tuttare ture sohameans “I prostrate to the Liberator, Mother of all the Victorious Ones.”
  • The Tara mantra is om tare tuttare ture soha. To explain the meaning of tare tuttare ture: tare means liberating from samsara.
  • Tare shows that Mother Tara liberates living beings from samsara, from true suffering, or problems. You can relate this to the particular sufferings of human beings: birth, old age, sickness and death; meeting undesirable objects and experiencing aversion; not finding desirable objects or finding them but gaining no satisfaction… All these are the problems of true suffering. If you rely upon Tara by taking refuge in her and doing Tara practices—such as the recitation of mantra or praises — with tare, Tara liberates you from all these true sufferings.
  • The second word, tuttare, liberates you from the eight fears. There are eight fears related to external dangers from fire, water, air, earth, and also from such things as thieves and dangerous animals. However, the main dangers come from ignorance, attachment, anger, pride, jealousy, miserliness, doubt and wrong views. These eight disturbing thoughts that you have in your mind are the main dangers… This second word, tuttare, which liberates you from the eight fears, frees you from the true cause of suffering: karma and the all-arising disturbing thoughts.
  • The third word, ture, liberates you from disease. Now, of the Four Noble Truths, ture shows the cessation of suffering, which is the ultimate Dharma. In terms of liberating from disease, the actual disease we have is ignorance not knowing the absolute nature of the I, and all the disturbing thoughts that arise from this ignorance… By liberating us from disease, ture actually liberates us from the true cause, disturbing thoughts, and also the true sufferings.
  • The rough meaning of these three words tare tuttare ture is: “To you, embodiment of all the Buddhas’ actions, I prostrate always — whether I am in happy or unhappy circumstances — with my body, speech and mind.”
  • The final word soha means establishing the root of the path within your heart. In other words, by taking refuge in Tara and doing Tara practice, you receive the blessings of Tara in your own heart. This gives you space to establish the root of the path, signified by tare tuttare ture, in your heart. By establishing the path of the three capable beings within your heart, you purify all impurities of your body, speech and mind, and achieve Tara’s pure vajra holy body, holy speech and holy mind, which are signified by om. Your body, speech and mind are transformed into Tara’s holy body, holy speech and holy mind. This is the rough meaning of om tare tuttare ture soha.

Like om mani padme hum, the Green Tara Mantra is much greater than the sum of its parts, with layers of meaning and benefit that resonate with us beyond what our minds perceive.

By calling on Tara’s protection from danger and from our fears with a sincere motivation to be relieved of our suffering for the benefit of all beings, we can gain the multiple benefits of selfish altruism, and compassionate action, becoming happier ourselves as we help others.

Penawar Hitam (黑金木)

黑金木

黑金木简介:
黑金木是一种极为珍贵的化石木。由于稀少,黑金木的价格就好像黄金一样。黑金木拥有很高的医药价值,通常用于肚疼和解毒,而在民间黑金木也和帝王木一样用于辟邪和风水。
传闻黑金木至今还未曾找到过活树,所以相信黑金木是一种已绝种的树木。现在所能看到的黑金木有限,而且因粉化的树质高和能被作为手工品的部分实在是太少了,所以价钱非常昂贵.
市场走势 : 黑金木一般都比帝王木卖价高上好几倍,一般一小块黑金木(1.5cm 厚宽/4cm长)可以卖到六十至一百五十等。而用黑金木制成的佛珠连更可以卖到比帝王木佛珠连高(三百至五百等依等级与大小数量)。
特征 :黑金木大多特征都和帝王木一样,但不能透光。黑金木以颜色分别等级,越是黑越是昂贵。黑金木偶尔还能看见黑色的树纹。
黑金木本是一块坚硬木料,后来被原著民发现拥有辟邪,挡煞,防降头及护身符功能。一般上土著进森林打猎和砍伐树木都会随身带上一片黑金木或帝王木防备邪灵侵犯。
原本天然东西都具备一定的灵性,黑金木与帝王木的分别是各有所长,功能各异。现今很多知道这两种灵木的功能后都会打造成雕饰品或保留原木用以佩戴及护宅。
Penawar Hitam或宇宙能量木 – 黑金树王是自然生长的黑木。如忍者般的内敛,黑金深藏不露,它隐藏在他树的内中央,一旦出关,必驱赶黑巫术及邪灵于千里之外。
黑金的行踪神出鬼没,不知者即使砍倒整座森林,也难觅其踪。唯有原住民感于它的神秘能量,方能发掘它。黑金,树中树,吸取百年日月精华,一旦重见天日,只见有缘人。
功能
1. 挡黑巫术
2. 避邪消灾
3. 镇宅旺屋
4. 招财进宝
特制的黑金木垂饰, 拥有超级能量, 在佩带或不需接触的状况下, 皆能把能量传递给当事人
