如意轮咒

如意轮咒(满愿轮咒):

唵帕摩无许尼夏毕(尾)玛雷吽呸

如意轮咒,亦称满愿轮咒。 出自《不空绢索观音密续》及《建屋经》,闻此神咒者,皆能净诸恶业,治疗各种疾病,甚至日渐觉悟、终成佛道。每日持七遍,功德等同供养恒河沙数诸佛。若将此咒高悬于门楣之上,或行人所经之高处,凡于此咒下经过一次者,即得无上威神加持,三业渐证清净无垢,灭除百千万劫重罪。

只念一遍如意轮咒,净无间罪。每日七遍,往生净土。常持此咒,能忆前世,预见来世。持完咒后,吹气于衣服或燃香上,香气可净自己,利益有情。持咒后,吹气在砂上,撤死尸上,有情曾破戒或已堕恶趣者,皆能转生上界。持咒完后,吹气于香水,燃香上,闻者皆能净恶业,治疗各种疾病,助成佛道。供香亦可持此咒六遍,供养偈一遍:“愿此香华,普遍十方,供养三宝,护法龙天,普熏众生,同入佛智。”

如意轮咒(满愿轮咒)的利益:

尊贵的梭巴仁波切开示:满愿轮咒(嗡,帕摩,无许尼夏,毕玛雷,吽呸)具有无法置信的利益。每天念满愿轮咒七遍,会往生净土。持完咒之后,吹气在衣服或燃香上,能够净化自己和其他有情。持完咒之后,吹气在燃香上,然后烧香,香烟会净化其他的有情。把咒放在门槛上,凡是从它下面走过的人,都会得到净化,不会堕恶趣。在西藏这个咒往往写在纸上,放在亡者身上,净化他们,使他们不至于堕恶趣。光是忆念此咒一次,其威力便足以净除五无间罪,使人免堕“不堪忍的苦境”,也就是最苦的那层地狱。所有的恶业和无明障都会净除,并永不堕恶趣。此咒能够使人记得前世,预见来世。每天持此咒七次,所造的功德相当于供养量等恒河沙之多的佛。下一生将往生净土,并成就好几百个层次的止。持完此咒之后,吹气在沙上,然后把沙撒在死尸上,即使那位有情曾经破戒或者已经堕恶趣,都能够转生上界。如果持此咒之后,吹气在自己所涂的香水或所烧的燃香上,凡是闻到香水的气味或燃香的香气者,都能够净除恶业,甚至还能够治愈传染病。此外,它也有助于成就佛圆满的功德。

在麦彭仁波切总结的《消除业障百咒功德》中这样说:这是不空绢索经中所说依靠一字至十字之间便可获得十地功德无量的十地明咒,最后的一个字是不空绢索莲花顶髻佛的心咒,只是持诵也能成就。如果讽诵十万遍,则不退转获得十地,无疑会转为不空绢索莲花顶髻转轮佛的眷属,人天世间称为佛。仅一次以清净慈悲心缘众生而忆念,也不堕入恶趣,具足广大善根。诵两遍尽除一切疾病,诵三遍息灭毒、天花、追后、臁疮、麻风、皮癣等,念四遍能遣除一切宝毒、诅咒;只诵五遍,就能平息一切斗争,争论,仅诵六遍,便可消除一切畏惧、病魔、瘟疫,诵七遍能遣除横死、一切众生的疾病、一切传染病。因此每一日应当为利一切众生而禁语忆念七遍。

如果有将下堕地狱的众生死亡,或者对上师等不恭敬的破戒之人死亡,念诵七遍加持沙土,撒在尸林或尸体焚烧处,或者停尸处,则凡是接触到骨灰着立刻从恶趣处迁移转生到善趣。

如果将此咒写在木条上,装在佛塔里,那么仅仅碰到佛塔影子,无论任何众生均清净一切业障,趋入善趣。

若对海螺诵七遍而吹,那么凡是听到螺声者也是同样解脱

如果耳闻念诵的声音,也不退转。

此外,念此咒对旃檀吹气,感觉到它的香气者,也会如此;

对法衣吹气,穿著者均会清净一切业障,趋入善趣。

Chanting and Meditation

tips-for-mantra-chanting

What is Chanting?

Chanting is a sound repeated with intention to transmit a certain frequency. By repeating these seed syllables we begin to vibrate from the inside out, becoming quite literally our own tuning fork. This frequency bypasses our human limitations and allows us to see through the illusions of the world with greater clarity.

The Language of Chanting

Each tradition contains its own sacred sounds which act as seeds or keys to unlock the mind. Sanskrit, for example, was not a language meant for communication; rather, it was a transmitter of energy. Guru Prem Singh Khalsa offers that “a mantra is a projection of the mind (Man=mind, Tra=wave/projection) to divinity.”Chanting these ancient sounds that created our universe can then reconnect us with her primordial grace.

Benefits of Chanting

When we chant, we engage in a psycho-spiritual and physical exercise, altering our cells.

Physical changes

Reduces stress, improves cognition, lowers heart rate, helps tune inward to become aware of distress in the physical body before it becomes illness.

Emotional changes

Alleviates depression, reduces stress.

Spiritual Changes

Moves us into unity consciousness, shifts us into co-creator mindset with the universe, reprograms the subconscious mind.

While the health benefits are immense and are now being widely researched, the spiritual gifts are where I get giddy. By chanting these nonsense sounds with no attachment to meaning, we are subtly replacing the subconscious fears and self-judgment with tones of love, peace and the sublime.

What is meditation?

Meditation is relaxation. It is not about concentration, it’s actually about de-concentration. It’s not about focussing one’s thoughts on one thing, but instead on becoming thoughtless.

Benefits of meditation

  • A calm mind
  • Good concentration
  • Better clarity
  • Improved communication
  • Relaxation and rejuvenation of the mind and bodyWith meditation, the physiology undergoes a change and every cell in the body is filled with more prana (energy). This result in joy, peace, enthusiasm as the level of prana in the body increases.
  • On a physical level, meditation:

Health benefits of meditation

  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Lowers the levels of blood lactate, reducing anxiety attacks
  • Decreases any tension-related pain, such as, tension headaches, ulcers, insomnia, muscle and joint problems
  • Increases serotonin production that improves mood and behavior
  • Improves the immune system
  • Increases the energy level, as you gain an inner source of energyMeditation brings the brainwave pattern into an alpha state that promotes healing. The mind becomes fresh, delicate and beautiful. It cleanses and nourishes you from within and calms you, whenever you feel overwhelmed, unstable, or emotionally shut down. With regular practice of meditation:

Mental Benefits of Meditation

  • Anxiety decreases
  • Emotional stability improves
  • Creativity increases
  • Happiness increases
  • Intuition develops
  • Gain clarity and peace of mind
  • Problems become smaller
  • Meditation sharpens the mind by gaining focus and expands through relaxation
  • A sharp mind without expansion causes tension, anger and frustration
  • An expanded consciousness without sharpness can lead to lack of action/progress
  • The balance of a sharp mind and an expanded consciousness brings perfection

Spiritual benefits of meditation

  • Meditation doesn’t have a religion and can be practiced by anybody regardless of the faith they follow.
  • Meditation makes you aware – that your inner attitude determines your happiness.
  • Effortless transition from being something to merging with the infinite and recognizing yourself as an inseparable part of the whole cosmos
  • In a meditative state, you are in a space of vastness, calmness and joy and this is what you emit into the environment, bringing harmony to the Creation/planet.
  • Meditation can bring about a true personal transformation. As you learn more about yourself, you’ll naturally start discovering more about yourself and love yourself.

To experience the benefits of meditation, regular practice is necessary. It takes only a few minutes every day. Once imbibed into the daily routine, meditation becomes the best part of your day! Busy people from all backgrounds are grateful to pause and enjoy a refreshing few minutes of meditation each day. Dive deep into yourself and enrich your life.

However all the above remains a text or information if you don’t practice it. So do join me this coming Friday (22/02/2019) at 8pm at my place to have a feel of what meditation and chanting is all about.

 

神帥居供龙王法会

Naga Offering Puja (供龙王法会) will be held on 10th March 2019 at the western sea of Singapore. (Location to be confirm)

It is believed that by doing this offering one’s present wealth, fame, relationship, health, confidence, merits will improve, obstacles and sickness will be eliminated.

We should also dedicate the merit both toward the fulfilment of our aspiration, and also for the benefit of all sentient beings. For example, if one wishes to be free from a particular suffering such as a skin disease, the Naga Vase offerings should be dedicated to the peace and well being of the injured Naga, and the aspiration can be made that by this offering may all beings afflicted by the wrath of the Naga be forgiven for their mistakes and may they meet with the cessation of their ailments etc. Similarly one should also hope that all beings awaken to the heart of enlightenment by this generosity and may this Naga offering assures prosperity for all beings.

Limited number of Naga Vase (龙王宝瓶) is available for sponsorship.
