普贤菩萨十大愿

image3
(1)礼敬诸佛:

礼敬指生恭敬心,遍于身口,进行礼拜。即心观想,身礼拜,口称念:“一心顶礼本师释迦牟尼世尊及十方三世一切诸佛”,“一心顶礼西方安乐土大慈大悲阿弥陀佛及十方法界常住诸佛。”在顶礼时,达到一心不乱,五体投地,深入法性,离能所想。如偈说:“能礼所礼性空寂,感应道交难思议。我此道场如帝珠,阿弥陀佛影现中。我身影现弥陀前,头面接足皈命礼。”是则内佛外佛,同一实相,随一一礼,若佛若礼,重重无尽。自觉我身前有诸佛,诸佛前有我身。即是一一尘刹中皆有佛,一一佛前皆有普贤。一一普贤皆悉合掌礼拜。则一普贤之身,遍入一切普贤身内;一切普贤,皆摄归一普贤身内。正如《大般若经》说的:“一切法无生,一切法无灭,若能如是解,诸佛常现前。”

(2)称赞如来:
称即称颂,赞即赞叹。如来,佛的十号之一。如者如如不动,指不生不灭的心体,湛然寂照,亘古今而不变。来即去来,谓如如不动的心体,能生起万德。即于无去无来中,能去能来。佛有三身,称赞法、报、应三身的偈颂:“天上天下无如佛,十方世界亦无比。世间所有我尽见,一切无有如佛者”。称赞法身佛的偈颂:“清净妙法身,湛然应一切。”称赞报身佛的偈颂:“阿弥陀佛身金色,相好光明无等伦,白毫宛转五须弥,绀目澄清四大海,光中化佛无数亿,化菩萨众亦无边。四十八愿度众生。九品咸令登彼岸。”称赞应身佛的偈颂:“堂堂黄金相,巍巍不动尊,天上与人间,无不咸恭敬。”称赞如来相,以身业礼,以口业赞,以意业敬,是为三业供养如来。

(3)广修供养:
广指所供之境,竖穷三际,横遍十方,普贤菩萨对十方三世一切诸佛,悉皆供养。供养之物有财供养与法供养。财供养:有内财与外财。内财,如《法华经》说:用身、口、意三业恭敬供养,即礼拜赞叹供养。外财,指金钱田舍等。修行者、具大悲心。随缘能施,尽心供养。即一香一华,亦称理成就。如偈说:“愿此香华云,遍满十方界,供养一切佛,菩萨二乘僧。”法供养:以如来正法,开示众生,转迷启悟。如以“南无阿弥陀佛”万德洪名,逢人即劝,逢人即念是为法供养。吾人广修供养,可由小到大,由近及远,如法供养。可先劝一家,由一家及他家,从一方及十方,普贤菩萨称性起修,一字一句,周遍法界。

(4)忏悔业障:
吾人由身、口、意而造十恶,由十恶而招致六道轮回之苦。如《行愿品》说:若此恶业有体相,尽虚空界,不能容受。吾人既有业障,必当早求忏悔。忏者忏其前愆。悔者悔其后过。忏悔最好法门,莫如念佛。经云:念佛一声,能灭八十亿劫生死重罪。又云:“拔一切业障根本,得生净土陀罗尼。”故人能念佛持咒,则业障自除。且念佛法门,无论利根钝根,业轻业重,但肯信愿持名,无不往生极乐世界。

(5)随喜功德:
功德分二种:一者世间有漏功德,如慈善业,造桥修路,斋僧建寺等。二者出世间无漏功德,如了生脱死,广修六度、四摄等。对这两种功德,有力的则助力,无力的则赞叹,随喜而修,切不可讽刺打击,妒嫉诽谤。学习普贤菩萨随喜净土法门的精神,称赞阿弥陀佛的功德。

(6)请转法轮:
如来说法,一句一字,皆从菩提心中流出,大众闻法,一句一字入耳,皆转入心中而成妙法,释迦已灭,弥勒未生,我们应请大法师代佛说法,即请转法轮。法师转大法轮,能使人去恶向善,转凡成圣。说明请转法轮,当有不可思议的功德。

(7)请佛住世:
释迦灭后,弥勒未生,曷能请佛住世?当知是心作佛,即心即佛。众生心净,见佛常住,众生心垢,见佛涅槃,若人念念在佛,即时时请佛住世。勤修六字洪名,净念相继,则佛常映现心中。如经说:“心佛及众生,是三无差别。”

(8)常随佛学:
我们时时以佛为学习的榜样,对佛的教法要依教奉行。总之,要诚心忆佛,从因至果,引得心智,随之而学。常常如此,始终不变。

(9)恒顺众生:
以大悲心,平等饶益一切众生。对任何众生,都要承事供养,如敬父母乃至如来,等无有异。要求做到以下四点:(1)于诸病苦为作良医;(2)于失道者示其正路;(3)于暗夜中为作光明;(4)于贫困者令得宝藏。

(10)普皆回向:
菩萨作一切功德,都是为了一切众生,真正做到专门利人,毫不利己。怎样回向呢?经文中说:“愿令众生,常得安乐,无诸病苦,欲行恶法,悉皆不成,所修善业,皆速成就。关闭一切诸恶趣门,开示人天涅槃正路。”“若诸众生,因其积集诸恶业故,所感一切极重苦果,我皆代受,令彼众生悉得解脱。”回向的内容有三种:(1)回自向他:凡作一切功德、悉当回向尽虚空遍法界一切众生。(2)回因向果:将自己日夜所念的佛号和每日课诵。为众生回向往生极乐净土。(3)回事向理:从理论上认识,所作的一切功德,即因缘所生法。缘生无性,当体即空。佛说功德,即非功德,是名功德。

弘一法师:“愿得普贤真妙行,常乐利益诸众生。”

“过去心不可得,现在心不可得,未来心不可得”


Extracted.

过去心不可得:

六祖云:【念念之中,不思前境。若前念今念后念,念念相续不断,名为系缚。于诸法上,念念不住,即无缚也。此是以无住为本。】这就是无住为本。比如有人骂我们一句,或赞我们一句。我们都会或恼火或得意半天,更或亲人离去,我们更会执着其中,难以自拔,难得解脱。但正如时间会冲淡一切一样,可见过去心本质是了不可得,不是实实在在的。

现在心不可得:

六祖云:【于诸境上,心不染,曰无念。于自念上,常离诸境,不于境上生心】,这就是无念为宗。也是世尊所说的:【无住生心】。宗萨仁波切法师对此有一段生动的描述:【每个人都有这个想法,认为眼前的问题、此刻我们正在经历的问题,是最大的问题,不是吗?而且我们以为这些问题将会是我们最大、最持久的问题,但这不是事实。跟我们目前遇到的问题相比,五年前的问题微不足道;而不出五年,今天的问题将会显得无足轻重。】可见,现在心也是了不可得的。

未来心不可得:

六祖云:【于境上有念,念上便起邪见,一切尘劳妄想,从此而生。自性本无一法可得。若有所得,妄说祸福,即是尘劳邪见】。我们每遇一事,缘境起念,或期盼、或对未来惶恐不安,都会使我们本自清净的真心不在,这其实是我们大多数烦恼产生的根本原因。所以六祖云:当【并将为空,不思酬害】,这样我们的清净自性常在。

三心不可得,不沉浸过去,不看重现在的问题,不妄想将来的福祸。就像六祖所说的:【六根虽有见闻觉知,不染万境,而真性常自在】。如是真性常在,法体清净。即是六祖说的【烦恼尘劳,常不能染,即是(明心)见性】

“过去心不可得,现在心不可得,未来心不可得”也就是世尊所说的“无寿者相”。寿者是时间、相续的意思。【凡所有相皆是虚妄】,这个所有相包括空间角度与时间角度的一切相。

总持之门

“其人心意则清净,普入经卷度无极,悉解众人之音声,得总持时乃如是。
观知群萠心所行,善恶所念及中间,分别本性所造兴,则为说法随所应。
悉了因缘之报应,令不睹常及无常,皆以弃捐堕边际,分别总持随顺化。
明解文字之方便,知无央数之音响,晓了义理微妙好,得总持者乃如是。
逮得天眼无垢污,天耳清净亦如是,无量智慧知众行,念亿千劫去来事。
获四神足亦如是,至无量国须臾顷,供无数亿诸导师,闻所讲法则总持。
若干亿魔至百千,不能睹知境界行,清净之人无尘埃,讲说经法无数千。
譬如莲华无著水,不猗世法亦如是,常以解脱诸有无,等心一切如虚空。
持最色相而勇猛,众人观仰无厌足,进止安详行无缺,愍伤群萠故游世。
天帝释梵及护世,皆以恭敬稽首礼,其心不以憍慢说,得总持时亦如是。
口言柔软如梵音,为众人说可其心,温润流利言得时,所可教化无所覆。
在于众中无所畏,为师子吼妙无难,降伏一切众粗人,得净总持为如是。
其谀谄人难调化,兴于憍傲而自大,闻彼圣明所说法,即弃贡高稽首礼。
入于本净寂法界,以达义归解诸法,以故所说无穷已,分别文字知法律。
人之本性法界净,晓众生净亦如是,解知本无人本无,所说经法无挂碍。
所尽无尽不可知,无尽之事无能尽,觉了知是趣寂寞,则说无住亿经卷。
斯诸文字不处身,亦不在意不住心,文字本性空寂寞,譬如山中呼声响。
计总持者不著字,无音无言无说声,以知文字所趣然,假使所说无挂碍。
无意无想亦无心,设有所说无所念,又复解知去法慧,讲顺说经随所应。
以入分别四句义,晓了义理明识法,究畅音声顺所听,故讲无著不可量。
玩习本原承其慧,故说深要若干法,所解之慧了逆顺,有趣顶法度无极。
方便所有诸怯弱,以用救摄诸卒暴,明识所作为解说,得总持者乃如是。
其身口意皆已寂,分别诸慧不著古,所言无厌除瞋恨,得住总持为勇猛。
其所总持心执御,意之所入住法慧,其有闻者未曾忘,顺如听采等经典。
其总持义法不乱,计法行之无所入,以法等故曰平等,如应平等顺清净。”
