父母恩

【孝顺父母】
是中华民族的传统美德。
从佛家的观点来说,孝顺是向善的起点。
老吾老以及人之老,像对待自己父母一样对待天下的老人,这个世界真的就是一个美好的人间。
如何能养成孝敬的美德:
第一、要有承顺言教的性格。
第二、要有从善如流的作风。
第三、要有虔诚恭敬的态度。
第四、要有克己利他的愿心。

【父母十大恩情】
第一恩:怀胎守护恩。
第二恩:临产受苦恩。
第三恩:生子忘忧恩。
第四恩:咽苦吐甘恩。
第五恩:回干就湿恩。
第六恩:哺乳养育恩。
第七恩:洗濯不净恩。
第八恩:远行忆念恩。
第九恩:深加体恤恩。
第十恩:究竟怜愍恩。

【报父母恩咒】
「南无密利多 多婆曳 娑诃」
nā mó mì lì duō,duō pó yì,suō hē。
每逢农历七月,每日念诵此咒四十九遍,可报父母恩,现世父母延寿,去世父母超荐,如一日未诵,次日可补诵。
若人百年之中,右肩担父,左肩担母,于上大小便利,极世珍奇、衣食供养,犹不能报須臾之恩。从今听诸比丘尽心尽寿供养父母。

Kyanite

Kyanite

The high vibration and rapid transfers of energy from Kyanite create pathways where none existed before. Like a universal bridge, it is an extraordinary crystal of connection, opening the mind centers, enhancing telepathic and psychic abilities, bridging gaps in all communication efforts, and providing a link for transmitting or receiving healing energy. It immediately aligns the chakras and subtle bodies, bringing tranquility and a calming effect to the whole being. It is an exceptional stone for transitioning into deep meditative states.

Like Citrine, Kyanite is one of the two minerals on the planet that neither accumulates nor retains negative energy, and therefore never needs cleansing. Kyanite’s energy is unlimited in application, making it an excellent stone for metaphysical purposes, and it may be used for cleansing and clearing other crystals.

Kyanite inspires loyalty and fair treatment to others. It assists in working through disagreements and disputes, and can aid in repairing damaged relationships. It is beneficial in negotiations, diplomatic missions, arbitration and other forms of communication between disharmonious people, allowing disparate energies to move into resonance and find a common frequency. 

In the workplace, Kyanite promotes good communication, bridging the gap between different beliefs and ideas, and encourages self-expression and speaking one’s truth. Hold or wear Kyanite when addressing a group, or leading a seminar or team meeting. It sharpens communication skills, and is particularly helpful when answering questions or when there is a need to improvise. 

Crystal Grid

For those who have lost their way in life, or are trying to break a cycle of self-destructive behavior, use Kyanite in an empowerment grid to get back on track. Lay out rows of small Kyanite blades radiating from a central Kyanite in six different directions. Use each night to walk a different path in the mind, letting images and ideas take form spontaneously. Continue until you no longer need the grid. 

Kyanite’s frequency encourages the examination of all aspects of oneself, the various interests, skills and knowledge that creates the uniqueness of one’s identity, and how it can be used for one’s Soul path on Earth and in finding a life-fulfilling vocation. It encourages listening to intuitive guidance and living with integrity of purpose.

Kyanite helps overcome a victim or fatalistic mentality, and the resignation of oneself to the recurring emotional patterns that create blockages in the energetic field. Kyanite can bridge the connection to those patterns and quickly create new energy flow and a shift in one’s perception to the world. It assists one in remaining functional in extreme situations, promotes a more logical way of thinking, and encourages resolute action. 

chakra balancing with crystals

 

 

Kyanite instantly aligns all the chakras and subtle bodies, clearing the pathways and meridians. It restores Qi to the physical body and promotes a calming effect to the whole being. With its blue and indigo energies, Kyanite is particularly stimulating to the Throat and Third Eye Chakras, expanding communication and psychic awareness on all levels.

Blue crystal energy will unblock and balance the throat chakra. Darker shades of blue encourage the power of truth, while lighter shades carry the power of flexibility, relaxation, and balance.

Spiritually, Kyanite removes the idea of blind fate or implacable karma, and reveals the part played by the self in creating causes and relationships in one’s life, and the action needed to balance the past. It dispels illusion, anger, and frustration, and increases logical, linear thought. It grounds spiritual energy, linking to the higher mind, bringing integrity and maturation. Kyanite is also helpful for those making the transition through death.

Kyanite’s high spiritual energy enhances one’s psychic abilities, and allows for a closer connection and transfer of information from higher beings. It assists in opening the Third Eye during mediation and healing sessions, and may be used to enhance telepathy between two persons, or between healing facilitator and client. It is an excellent tool for Crystal Resonance Therapy and other forms of crystal-based healing.

Kyanite’s energy is easily accessible, gentle, and balanced, making it an excellent crystal for meditation. It allows for a rapid transition into a deep meditative state, and is quite useful in accessing the astral plane and connecting with one’s guides, as well as gleaning solutions from within a lucid dream state.

Meditating with Black Kyanite allows one to return to past lives and go forward to probable futures, teaching one to experience interdimensional consciousness without losing connection to Earth.

佛说盂兰盆经

佛说盂兰盆经

西晋三藏法师竺法护译

闻如是。一时佛在舍卫国祇树给孤独园。大目犍连始得六通,欲度父母,报乳哺之恩。即以道眼观视世间,见其亡母生饿鬼中,不见饮食,皮骨连立。目连悲哀,即以钵盛饭,往饷其母,母得钵饭,即以左手障钵,右手搏食,食未入口,化成火炭,遂不得食。目连大叫,悲号涕泣,驰还白佛,具陈如此。

佛言:‘汝母罪根深结,非汝一人力所奈何。汝虽孝顺,声动天地、天神地祇、邪魔外道、道士四天王神,亦不能奈何。当须十方众僧威神之力乃得解脱。吾今当说救济之法,令一切难皆离忧苦。’

佛告目连:‘十方众生,七月十五日,僧自恣时,当为七世父母及现在父母厄难中者,具饭、百味五果、汲灌盆器、香油锭烛、床敷卧具、尽世甘美以著盆中,供养十方大德众僧。当此之日,一切圣众,或在山间禅定、或得四道果、或在树下经行、或六通自在教化声闻缘觉、或十地菩萨大人,权现比丘,在大众中,皆同一心,受钵和罗饭,具清净戒,圣众之道,其德汪洋。其有供养此等自恣僧者,现世父母、六亲眷属,得出三涂之苦应时解脱,衣食自然;若父母现在者,福乐百年;若七世父母生天,自在化生,入天华光。’

时佛敕十方众僧,皆先为施主家咒愿,愿七世父母行禅定意,然后受食。初受食时,先安在佛前,塔寺中佛前,众僧咒愿竟,便自受食。

时目连比丘及大菩萨众皆大欢喜,目连悲啼泣声释然除灭。

时目连母即于是日,得脱一劫饿鬼之苦。

目连复白佛言:‘弟子所生母,得蒙三宝功德之力,众僧威神力故。若未来世,一切佛弟子,亦应奉盂兰盆,救度现在父母,乃至七世父母,可为尔否?’

佛言:‘大善快问!我正欲说,汝今复问。善男子!若比丘比丘尼、国王太子、大臣宰相、三公百官、万民庶人,行慈孝者,皆应先为所生现在父母、过去七世父母,于七月十五日,佛欢喜日,僧自恣日,以百味饭食,安盂兰盆中,施十方自恣僧,愿使现在父母,寿命百年无病、无一切苦恼之患,乃至七世父母离恶鬼苦,生人天中,福乐无极。是佛弟子修孝顺者,应念念中,常忆父母,乃至七世父母。年年七月十五日,常以孝慈,忆所生父母,为作盂兰盆,施佛及僧,以报父母长养慈爱之恩。若一切佛弟子,应常奉持是法。’

时目连比丘、四辈弟子,欢喜奉行。

MoonStone

Moonstone

It is said if you give your lover a moonstone necklace when the moon is full you will always have passion with each other. Moonstone is a highly valued gemstone for these reasons:

  • Brings good fortune
  • Assists in foretelling the future
  • Enhances intuition
  • Promotes inspiration
  • Brings success in love as well as business matters
  • Offers protection on land and at sea

The moonstone is associated with the moon and was the stone of the goddess Diana. The most powerful time to use the moonstone is in a full moon.

It has been worn as an amulet to bring good emotions to the wearer, while protecting those of a sensitive nature. It can reunite lovers who have quarreled. Moonstone is also considered a good luck stone.

Moonstone is a very personal stone. It is a reflection of the person who owns it. It does not add or detract, only shows how it is. This is why the moonstone is said to perceive that which “is”. Moonstone is an excellent stone to use in meditation to understand oneself. Placing it in the moonlight of a moon reaching its fullness, not a full or waning moon, can revitalize it. This is a particularly good gemstone for women. It is a good stone for young women or teenagers.

Healing properties

Moonstone is used by healers to stimulate the functioning of the pineal gland and balance internal hormone cycles with nature’s rhythms. Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. Though often considered to be a woman’s stone, it can be beneficial to men in opening the emotional self.

佛說父母恩重難報經

佛說父母恩重難報經

姚秦三藏法師鳩摩羅什奉 詔譯

如是我聞,一時佛在舍衛國衹樹給孤獨園,與大比丘二千五百人,菩薩摩訶薩三萬八千人俱。
爾時,世尊引領大眾,直往南行,忽見路邊聚骨一堆。爾時,如來向彼枯骨,五體投地,恭敬禮拜。

阿難合掌白言:『世尊!如來是三界大師,四生慈父,眾人歸敬,以何因緣,禮拜枯骨?』

佛告阿難:『汝等雖是吾上首弟子,出家日久,知事未廣。此一堆枯骨,或是我前世祖先,多生父母。以是因緣,我今禮拜。』

佛告阿難:『汝今將此一堆枯骨分做二分,若是男骨,色白且重;若是女骨,色黑且輕。』

阿難白言:『世尊,男人在世,衫帶鞋帽,裝束嚴好,一望知為男子之身。女人在世,多塗脂粉,或薰蘭麝,如是裝飾,即得知是女流之身。而今死後,白骨一般,教弟子等,如何認得。

佛告阿難:『若是男子,在世之時,入於伽藍,聽講經律,禮拜三寶,念佛名號;所以其骨,色白且重。世間女人,短於智力,易溺於情,生男育女,認為天職;每生一孩,賴乳養命,乳由血變,每孩飲母八斛四斗甚多白乳,所以憔悴,骨現黑色,其量亦輕。』

阿難聞語,痛割於心,垂淚悲泣,白言:『世尊!母之恩德,云何報答?』

佛告阿難:『汝今諦聽,我當為汝,分別解說:母胎懷子,凡經十月,甚為辛苦。在母胎時,第一月中,如草上珠,朝不保暮,晨聚將來,午消散去。母懷胎時,第二月中,恰如凝酥。母懷胎時,第三月中,猶如凝血。母懷胎時,第四月中,稍作人形。母懷胎時,第五月中,兒在母腹,生有五胞。何者為五?頭為一胞,兩肘兩膝,各為一胞,共成五胞。母懷胎時,第六月中,兒在母腹,六精齊開,何者為六?眼為一精,耳為二精,鼻為三精,口為四精,舌為五精,意為六精。母懷胎時,第七月中,兒在母腹,生成骨節,三百六十,及生毛乳,八萬四千。母懷胎時,第八月中,生出意智,以及九竅。母懷胎時,第九月中,兒在母腹,吸收食物,所出各質,桃梨蒜果,五穀精華。其母身中,生臟向下,熟臟向上,喻如地面,有山聳出,山有三名,一號須彌,二號業山,三號血山。此設喻山,一度崩來,化為一條,母血凝成胎兒食料。母懷胎時,第十月中,孩兒全體一一完成,方乃降生。若是決為孝順之子,擎拳合掌,安詳出生,不損傷母,母無所苦。倘兒決為五逆之子,破損母胎,扯母心肝,踏母跨骨,如千刀攪,又彷彿似萬刃攢心。如斯重苦,出生此兒,更分晰言,尚有十恩:

第一、 懷胎守護恩;第二、 臨產受苦恩;第三、 生子忘憂恩;第四、 咽苦吐甘恩;第五、 迴乾就濕恩;第六、 哺乳養育恩;第七、 洗濯不淨恩;第八、 遠行憶念恩;第九、 深加體恤恩;第十、 究竟憐愍恩。

第一、懷胎守護恩 頌曰
累劫因緣重,今來托母胎,月逾生五臟,七七六精開。
體重如山岳,動止劫風災,羅衣都不掛,妝鏡惹塵埃。

第二、臨產受苦恩 頌曰
懷經十個月,難產將欲臨,朝朝如重病,日日似昏沈。
難將惶怖述,愁淚滿胸襟,含悲告親族,惟懼死來侵。

第三、生子忘憂恩 頌曰
慈母生兒日,五臟總張開,身心俱悶絕,血流似屠羊。
生已聞兒健,歡喜倍加常,喜定悲還至,痛苦徹心腸。

第四、咽苦吐甘恩 頌曰
父母恩深重,顧憐沒失時,吐甘無稍息,咽苦不顰眉。
愛重情難忍,恩深復倍悲,但令孩兒飽,慈母不辭饑。

第五、迴乾就濕恩 頌曰
母願身投濕,將兒移就乾,兩乳充饑渴,羅袖掩風寒。
恩憐恆廢枕,寵弄纔能歡,但令孩兒穩,慈母不求安。

第六、哺乳養育恩 頌曰
慈母像大地,嚴父配於天,覆載恩同等,父娘恩亦然。
不憎無怒目,不嫌手足攣,誕腹親生子,終日惜兼憐。

第七、洗滌不淨恩 頌曰
本是芙蓉質,精神健且豐,眉分新柳碧,臉色奪蓮紅。
恩深摧玉貌,洗濯損盤龍,只為憐男女,慈母改顏容。

第八、遠行憶念恩 頌曰
死別誠難忍,生離實亦傷,子出關山外,母憶在他鄉。
日夜心相隨,流淚數千行,如猿泣愛子,寸寸斷肝腸。

第九、深加體恤恩 頌曰
父母恩情重,恩深報實難,子苦願代受,兒勞母不安。
聞道遠行去,憐兒夜臥寒,男女暫辛苦,長使母心酸。

第十、究竟憐愍恩 頌曰
父母恩深重,恩憐無歇時,起坐心相逐,近遙意與隨。
母年一百歲,常憂八十兒,欲知恩愛斷,命盡始分離。』

佛告阿難:『我觀眾生,雖紹人品,心行愚蒙,不思爹娘,有大恩德,不生恭敬,忘恩背義,無有仁慈,不孝不順。阿娘懷子,十月之中,起坐不安,如擎重擔,飲食不下,如長病人。月滿生時,受諸痛苦,須臾產出,恐已無常,如殺豬羊,血流遍地。受如是苦,生得兒身,咽苦吐甘,抱持養育,洗濯不淨,不憚劬勞,忍寒忍熱,不辭辛苦,乾處兒臥,濕處母眠。三年之中,飲母白血,嬰孩童子,乃至成年,教導禮義,婚嫁營謀,備求資業,攜荷艱辛,懃苦百倍,不言恩惠。

男女有病,父母驚憂,憂極生病,視同常事。子若病除,母病方愈。如斯養育,願早成人。及其長成,反為不孝。尊親與言,不知順從,應對無禮,惡眼相視。

欺凌伯叔,打罵兄弟,毀辱親情,無有禮義。雖曾從學,不遵範訓,父母教令,多不依從,兄弟共言,每相違戾。出入來往,不啟尊堂,言行高傲,擅意為事。父母訓罰,伯叔語非,童幼憐愍,尊人遮護,漸漸成長,狠戾不調,不伏虧違,反生瞋恨。棄諸親友,朋附惡人,習久成性,認非為是。或被人誘,逃往他鄉,違背爹娘,離家別眷。或因經紀,或為政行,荏苒因循,便為婚娶,由斯留礙,久不還家。或在他鄉,不能謹慎,被人謀害,橫事鉤牽,枉被刑責,牢獄枷鎖。或遭病患,厄難縈纏,囚苦饑羸,無人看待,被人嫌賤,委棄街衢。因此命終,無人救治,膨脹爛壞,日暴風吹,白骨飄零。寄他鄉土,便與親族,歡會長乖,違背慈恩,不知二老,永懷憂念,或因啼泣,眼暗目盲;或因悲哀,氣咽成病;或緣憶子,衰變死亡,作鬼抱魂,不曾割捨。

或復聞子,不崇學業,朋逐異端,無賴粗頑,好習無益,鬥打竊盜,觸犯鄉閭,飲酒樗蒲,姦非過失,帶累兄弟,惱亂爹娘,晨去暮還,不問尊親,動止寒溫,晦朔朝暮,永乖扶侍,安床薦枕,並不知聞,參問起居,從此間斷,父母年邁,形貌衰羸,羞恥見人,忍受欺抑。

或有父孤母寡,獨守空堂,猶若客人,寄居他舍,寒凍飢渴,曾不知聞。晝夜常啼,自嗟自歎,應奉甘旨,供養尊親。若輩妄人,了無是事,每作羞慚,畏人怪笑。

或持財食,供養妻兒,忘厥疲勞,無避羞恥;妻妾約束,每事依從,尊長瞋呵,全無畏懼。

或復是女,適配他人,未嫁之時,咸皆孝順;婚嫁已訖,不孝遂增。父母微瞋,即生怨恨;夫婿打罵,忍受甘心,異姓他宗,情深眷重,自家骨肉,卻以為疏。或隨夫婿,外郡他鄉,離別爹娘,無心戀慕,斷絕消息,音信不通,遂使爹娘,懸腸掛肚,刻不能安,宛若倒懸,每思見面,如渴思漿,慈念後人,無有休息。

父母恩德,無量無邊,不孝之愆,卒難陳報。』

爾時,大眾聞佛所說父母重恩,舉身投地,搥胸自撲,身毛孔中,悉皆流血,悶絕躄地,良久乃蘇,高聲唱言:『苦哉,苦哉!痛哉,痛哉!我等今者深是罪人,從來未覺,冥若夜游,今悟知非,心膽俱碎,惟願世尊哀愍救援,云何報得父母深恩?』

爾時,如來即以八種深重梵音,告諸大眾:『汝等當知,我今為汝分別解說:假使有人,左肩擔父,右肩擔母,研皮至骨,穿骨至髓,遶須彌山,經百千劫,血流沒踝,猶不能報父母深恩;假使有人,遭飢饉劫,為於爹娘,盡其己身,臠割碎壞,猶如微塵,經百千劫,猶不能報父母深恩;假使有人,為於爹娘,手執利刀,剜其眼睛,獻於如來,經百千劫,猶不能報父母深恩;假使有人,為於爹娘,亦以利刀,割其心肝,血流遍地,不辭痛苦,經百千劫,猶不能報父母深恩;假使有人,為於爹娘,百千刀戟,一時刺身,於自身中,左右出入,經百千劫,猶不能報父母深恩;假使有人,為於爹娘,打骨出髓,經百千劫,猶不能報父母深恩;假使有人,為於爹娘,吞熱鐵丸,經百千劫,遍身焦爛,猶不能報父母深恩。』

爾時,大眾聞佛所說父母恩德,垂淚悲泣,痛割於心,諦思無計,同發聲言,深生慚愧,共白佛言:『世尊!我等今者深是罪人,云何報得父母深恩?』

佛告弟子:『欲得報恩,為於父母書寫此經,為於父母讀誦此經,為於父母懺悔罪愆,,為於父母供養三寶,為於父母受持齋戒,為於父母布施修福,若能如是,則得名為孝順之子;不做此行,是地獄人。』

佛告阿難:『不孝之人,身壞命終,墮於阿鼻無間地獄。此大地獄,縱廣八萬由旬,四面鐵城,周圍羅網。其地亦鐵,盛火洞然,猛烈火燒,雷奔電爍。烊銅鐵汁,澆灌罪人,銅狗鐵蛇,恆吐煙火,焚燒煮炙,脂膏焦燃,苦痛哀哉,難堪難忍,鉤竿槍槊,鐵鏘鐵串,鐵槌鐵戟,劍樹刀輪,如雨如雲,空中而下,或斬或刺,苦罰罪人,歷劫受殃,無時暫歇,又令更入餘諸地獄,頭戴火盆,鐵車碾身,縱橫駛過,腸肚分裂,骨肉焦爛,一日之中,千生萬死。受如是苦,皆因前身五逆不孝,故獲斯罪。』

爾時,大眾聞佛所說父母恩德,垂淚悲泣,告於如來:『我等今者,云何報得父母深恩?』

佛告弟子:『欲得報恩,為於父母造此經典,是真報得父母恩也。能造一卷,得見一佛;能造十卷,得見十佛;能造百卷,得見百佛;能造千卷,得見千佛;能造萬卷,得見萬佛。是等善人,造經力故,是諸佛等,常來慈護,立使其人,生身父母,得生天上,受諸快樂,離地獄苦。』

爾時,阿難及諸大眾、阿修羅、迦樓羅、緊那羅、摩侯羅伽、人非人等、天、龍、夜叉、乾闥婆、及諸小王,轉輪聖王,是諸大眾聞佛所言,身毛皆豎,悲泣哽咽,不能自裁,各發願言:我等從今盡未來際,寧碎此身猶如微塵,經百千劫,誓不違於如來聖教;寧以鐵鉤拔出其舌,長有由旬,鐵犁耕之,血流成河,經百千劫,誓不違於如來聖教;寧以百千刀輪,於自身中,自由出入,誓不違於如來聖教;寧以鐵網周匝纏身,經百千劫,誓不違於如來聖教;寧以剉碓斬碎其身百千萬段,皮肉筋骨悉皆零落,經百千劫,終不違於如來聖教。』

爾時,阿難從於坐中安詳而起,白佛言:『世尊,此經當何名之?云何奉持?』

佛告阿難:『此經名為父母恩重難報經,以是名字,汝當奉持!』

爾時,大眾、天人、阿修羅等,聞佛所說,皆大歡喜,信受奉行,作禮而退。
