Our Avatamsaka Dhyāna View of the Sentient World


Avalokiteshvara yidam

禪觀有情世界
在日常生活中體驗諸行無常
在起心動念中覺證諸法無我
在一息尚存中成就涅槃寂靜
在法界遷流中了悟緣起性空
Our Avatamsaka Dhyāna View of This Sentient World
Experience the Impermanence of all actions in our everyday life.
Wake up to the fact that all thoughts and intentions are void of substance.
Be one with and listen to the harmonious unstruck sound of silence of Om in Nirvana before you breathe out your last and final breath of life.
In the never ending shifts and flows of the Dharma realms wake up and come to the inner-standing and realisation that the original nature of all causes and conditions is substantively void.

A State and Act of Contemplation


‘Kuan’ is both a State and Act of Contemplation

The word ‘kuan’ as used in Chinese Ch’an practice and in esoteric practice carries different meanings respectively.

In Ch’an practices, it is a noun, meaning a realized state of contemplation manifested after a practitioner has eliminated all his illusions through the practice of vipassana or Ch’an. Such a state can be manifested as heterodox or orthodox, or as imperfect or perfect. The practitioner must then follow the guidance of his guru, carefully compare his realized state with what is written and taught in the sutras, and adhere to what is orthodox and perfect so as to enter the state of samadhi in real life.

In esoteric practices, however, the word ‘kuan’ refers to an act of immersing oneself in a physical and mental state so as to achieve contemplated reality. The practitioner puts himself in real life situations to carry out such an acts of contemplation according to esoterics. Thus esoteric Buddhism emphasizes ‘kuan’, both in action and at rest.

Moreover, in esoteric practices, special emphases are placed on the arrangement of the altar and use of mandalas. The four main classes of mandalas used in esoteric practices are (1) the maha-mandalas, representing the Buddha statue or image, (2) the Dharma or seed mandalas, representing the seed syllables of the mantras as embodiment of sutra texts, (3) the samaya mandalas, representing the instruments and mudras used in the ceremonial practices, and (4) karma mandalas, representing the descriptions or expressions of actions and accomplishments of of the Buddha having the function of cause and effect. All of such mandalas are used in association with mudras, mantras, and Dharma texts, forming the ‘triple dharma seals of one reality’ by uniting the body, speech, and mind. A practitioner is thus able to enter the state of the Dharmakaya.

接受其他化身的好处


接受其他化身的好处
你告诉我呀。你相信那样有好处吗?你相信这是我们所经历的唯一的生命吗?你相信什么?你相信有其他化身吗?你相信什么?对于那些说这是唯一生命的人,我们必须温和对待,因为他们是演员,我们也是演员。宽恕他们吧,因为他们不知道他们说了什么。因为他们受到控制而且不知如何、不知其然也不知其所以然,他们压根儿就是不知道。

1、 接受你有一个以上的生命的事实有什么好处?你会与上帝同在。它意味着在你的基因层次,你接受了自我承担义务和责任,你没有复仇,而你可能是公正的。如果你有一个充满仇恨的化身,那些记忆来自另一个生命,它会阻挡你。你不会想回到过去重温你已经做完的事,所以你关闭它们。当你说你不相信其他化身,你在说你不想回到太初的其他生命里,看看你都做过了什么。那些不接受其他化身的人更有可能通过损坏的基因传给他们的后代。换句话说使他们生病,把这些可怕的疾病带给他们的后代,为什么?因为基因说"哈!哈!有报复的记忆在你的意识里,你却不懂 , 但在潜意识下你就做了。"这个基因基于你渴望的、特定的信念被传递前进,穿透你的许多化身向前。

2、 接受你还有其他化身的事实意味着你可能更富有同情心。这意味着,例如,你对这样的化身没有任何的报复。这是你对你自己说你不会有事,"你必须对自己或别人履行报复。"根据灵性约定,这别人可能是你的后代、配偶或任何人,而你同意经历这个生命。当你承认你有其他化身,你认可你的行动在灵魂层面上的后果,你理解行动和反应、播种和收获。当你给别人带来伤害,你最好通过宽恕的过程取得宽恕。当某人伤害你了,宽恕他。至于那些不接受其他化身的人,在感情层面他们有能力知道真理,他们的思想不可能知道这个。他们创建一种观点,认为他们可以在感情层面接受真理,但我能分辨出他的灵魂充满了复仇的基因。90%的人们说他们接受在这个世界上还有其他化身,他们只是口头上说说而已,他们不是真的接受。谁又能够理解这一点呢?这里有许多人声称他们有天赋并正在讨论能源。但是在这个星球上只有很少人懂得真理,我就是在三个之中能回答这个问题之所以然的其中一个。这是非常强有力的。当化身基因从重量级报复上面开释出来,你更有可能成为一个追求和平的人,你不会制造冲突或战争,你会竭尽所能以避免它们。而且在个人层面上,你的职业生涯、与政府或其他机构的外部关系,你都会竭尽所能以避免冲突。当你接受有一个基因和接受其他的化身基因时整个想法会变得更富有同情心。它是说你不想伤害自己或其他人。但是当你说不接受其他化身时,你的潜意识说,对,伤害别人是好的,而且还可以伤害你自己。它确实意味着你在精神不稳定。如果你不接受这个真理,你就不能精神稳定。

3、当你说你接受其他化身,你就能够在精神上接受神的治疗。这是非常强大的。这就是为什么比如有人声称在天主教堂收到一个奇迹的原因,那个象十年一次的,而且他们在未来5-10年就对病人进行一些心理测试。但是,嘿,你如果是教皇并且准备退休,那你就不必经历同样的审视。他戴上他的兔子帽子说,“好吧,我们有了一个奇迹!”我为人家祈祷并且他变得更好了。问题是如何知道那是你的祈祷。也许这是他的家人和亲人的祈祷。也许这是他们自己的祈祷。但是谁会停下来问我这些问题呢?那些人是在教皇面前康复了吗?立刻康复了吗?是一个不可思议的治疗吗?那些才是你应该问的问题。但事实是,当某人精神稳定,这些奇迹天天都会发生,且你和天主有关系。当你们有了真正的关联,如果你的背有点疼,你可以祷告,你可以这样说,“上帝请宽恕我,无论我做过什么。”如果是一般财务问题,正好问问“宽恕我今生或另一个生命涉及到金钱的一切事情,给我灵异的征兆,告诉我该怎么做。”。并且我谈到核心问题,当你不接受其他的化身的时候,在你接受真正的精神的治疗之前,你需要有其他生命的经历,并且他们需要治愈。因为直到这个记忆被消除前一个人无法完全爱自己。再者,你不能和神有一个真正的关系,那种亲密的、神圣的、那种热量通过身体的、温暖的关系。如果你的化身基因未得到净化,在任何情况下,你可能扮演神的角色。再者你更有可能通过坏死基因移交给你的亲人或其他人因为复仇仍在那个基因上。你们说 “嗨!我们不能接受我有其他化身的事实,因为首先我必须履行复仇。”而上帝是爱天主教徒也是爱其他人的,但他希望看到世界的改变,而且是让世人变得更富有同情心。为了做到这一点,所有的教堂和宗教必须接受我们有许多化身的事实。

4、当你不接受其他化身的时候,你可能在理智上被驾驭了。当你用伪科学伤害他人时,如果你注意这是很容易观察到的。很多科学家今天已经脱离了上帝,他们的化身基因充满了不好的原料,他们也不想回去那里,可是在他们的潜意识层面上有那么多的报复。这是关于他们再次深入太初镜子看到自己的恐惧。在镜子里是很容易看到的,任何人你抱怨、批评、判断,都是你的(镜像)真实写照。这是同样的问题你需要在这里被治愈的原因。当你谴责你可能有其他化身这一事实的时候,你更有可能制造业力返应,因为你脱离了你的情绪。当你为别人做重要的决定时,你不能感觉情绪上的痛苦,尤其是如果你是个政治家或世界领袖、一个科学家,而且你做这些重要的决策,给别人带来了伤害,因为脱节,你不能感觉到情绪上的痛苦,但是如果你净化了基因你可能不会做任何带来伤害的决策,至少你应该尽你所能不要带来伤害。有时,我们无法阻止神的数学方程;这是来自天堂的东西。

5、当你不接受其他的化身,你是在说不能完全宽恕别人。为什么?好,其实你也不能宽恕你自己。从你在太初通道完成的另一个化身的不同体验,在一个世界和另一个世界之间的不同生活经验中,你将认识到有一个平行的世界。当你不能宽恕,好吧,你知道,你可能对他人或自己存有许多报复。当你对别人施加报复时,你就是在说,“嘿,你知道吗?我准备回去拥有同样的经历。”因此你和你的那个仇人灵魂就开始了一个轮回关系,周而复始。对于这样一个不能完全接受别人化身的人,他不能感受完全快乐,在某些情况下你根本无法表达喜悦。因此,当你说不能接受其他化身的时候,你潜意识在说你不配去经历完全的欢乐。

6、当一个人接受其他化身的好处是他们能成为更好的领导人,无论它是一个政府、组织、神秘学、一个教师、家长以及政治家诸如此类。为什么?为什么他们能成为更好的领导人?因为他们更倾向于有常识;因为在所有情况下,当你缺乏常识你总是报复,美国我爱这个国家。但是嘿,你必须有个常识性的政府。但是如果你只是追求战争,哪里是常识,它在哪里?它是报复。所以,今天被高调使用的词“常识”,他们不明白那意味着什么?当你摆脱了报复,你就能尊重他人的意见,你就开始关心别人会发生什么。

7、当你说没有其他化身时你只是口头上承认基督,因为我询问过基督你是不是接受了其他化身,是的。人类最怕什么?他们的镜像反应。传教士是什么?一个牧师最怕什么?那些声称传讲神的旨意却谴责其他化身的人……嘿,我遇到了私下里接受其他化身的福音传道者和牧师,但是他们说如果我们说出真相我们将失去一半信徒。他们与主已经制造了大量业力。他们应该说真话而他们也应该失去他们的会员资格。上帝说,”宗教分子大多是口头上承认基督”。如果你不能完全爱人如己,或者用你的整个心、整个思想和你的整个灵魂去热爱上帝,如果你不能这么做,如果你不能无条件宽恕,或者爱,这就是口头上信奉基督。这就意味着你的化身在某种程度上的妥协让步。这就意味着你正在部分地或完全地与上帝分离。上帝说,人类和世界各国政府需要继续做大量计划,因为医疗保健成本的价格飞涨了,并且如果他们信奉上帝,真正的上帝,通过祈祷治疗这些基因,这些人很多都能被治愈,而且那些昂贵的费用(负担)不是转嫁给政府和纳税人。我们怎么变得如此愚蠢呢?

8、当人才们声明他将不会接受他的镜像效应意味着他不能接受真理,天主的的真理,因为镜像效应反映是一个很容易识别你自身弱点的简单方法,所以你可以通过宽恕,治愈你的灵魂,通过观察别人的弱点,并且自称那是你自己在某种程度上的弱点,因为你不能够接受积极的行为,找出积极的解决方案并拥抱他们给自己和他人带来和谐。如果你忽略了你的镜像效应,你会把疾病、病痛带进你的身体。这就是为什么这些人在你面前会让你生气,因为它是今生你想打自己一顿并为你带来疾病的同样的问题。所以你应该感谢那些真正让你疯了的人。当他们停止让你发疯的时候,你内在的问题已经被治愈并且你已经免于一些可怕的疾病。

9、如果你不接受其他化身,就不能真正成为精神上的、神圣的天赋奇才。一个牧师不能是天才。如果他们不接受其他化身,真正的上帝不能通过这个牧师工作,因为他们仅仅是口头上通晓圣经,仅此而已并且他们可以阅读,仅此而已。神圣的天赋是通过宽恕通过接受真理通过多个生命带来决心。它不是要攻击他人。它是关于为了解决问题提供真理。它是关系到不对别人弄权。上帝没有对任何人玩用权力。人类相信对另一个人用权这是人性的扭曲。反而这是关于自我义务和自我责任。这意味着接受其他化身。所有你必须要做的是给自己许下一个承诺。就是通过化身基因看到别人的弱点并且请求上帝宽恕你的和看到别人的相同弱点。阿门。

接受其他化身的好处


接受其他化身的好处
你告诉我呀。你相信那样有好处吗?你相信这是我们所经历的唯一的生命吗?你相信什么?你相信有其他化身吗?你相信什么?对于那些说这是唯一生命的人,我们必须温和对待,因为他们是演员,我们也是演员。宽恕他们吧,因为他们不知道他们说了什么。因为他们受到控制而且不知如何、不知其然也不知其所以然,他们压根儿就是不知道。

1、        接受你有一个以上的生命的事实有什么好处?你会与上帝同在。它意味着在你的基因层次,你接受了自我承担义务和责任,你没有复仇,而你可能是公正的。如果你有一个充满仇恨的化身,那些记忆来自另一个生命,它会阻挡你。你不会想回到过去重温你已经做完的事,所以你关闭它们。当你说你不相信其他化身,你在说你不想回到太初的其他生命里,看看你都做过了什么。那些不接受其他化身的人更有可能通过损坏的基因传给他们的后代。换句话说使他们生病,把这些可怕的疾病带给他们的后代,为什么?因为基因说"哈!哈!有报复的记忆在你的意识里,你却不懂 , 但在潜意识下你就做了。"这个基因基于你渴望的确特定的信念被传递前进,穿透你的许多化身向前。

2、        接受你还有其他化身的事实意味着你可能更富有同情心。这意味着,例如,你对这样的化身没有任何的报复。这是你对你自己说你不会有事,"你必须对自己或别人履行报复。"根据灵性约定,这别人可能是你的后代、配偶或任何人,而你同意经历这个生命。当你承认你有其他化身,你认可你的行动在灵魂层面上的后果,你理解行动和反应、播种和收获。当你给别人带来伤害,你最好通过宽恕的过程取得宽恕。当某人伤害你了,宽恕他。至于那些不接受其他化身的人,在感情层面他们有能力知道真理,他们的思想不可能知道这个。他们创建一种观点,认为他们可以在感情层面接受真理,但我能分辨出他的灵魂充满了复仇的基因。90%的人们说他们接受在这个世界上还有其他化身,他们只是口头上说说而已,他们不是真的接受。谁又能够理解这一点呢?这里有许多人声称他们有天赋并正在讨论能源。但是在这个星球上只有很少人懂得真理,我就是在三个之中能回答这个问题之所以然的其中一个。这是非常强有力的。当化身基因从重量级报复上面开释出来,你更有可能成为一个追求和平的人,你不会制造冲突或战争,你会竭尽所能以避免它们。而且在个人层面上,你的职业生涯、与政府或其他机构的外部关系,你都会竭尽所能以避免冲突。当你接受有一个基因和接受其他的化身基因时整个想法会变得更富有同情心。它是说你不想伤害自己或其他人。但是当你说不接受其他化身时,你的潜意识说,对,伤害别人是好的,而且还可以伤害你自己。它确实意味着你在精神不稳定。如果你不接受这个真理,你就不能精神稳定。

3、当你说你接受其他化身,你就能够在精神上接受神的治疗。这是非常强大的。这就是为什么比如有人声称在天主教堂收到一个奇迹的原因,那个象十年一次的,而且他们在未来5-10年就对病人进行一些心理测试。但是,嘿,你如果是教皇并且准备退休,那你就不必经历同样的审视。他戴上他的兔子帽子说,“好吧,我们有了一个奇迹!”我为人家祈祷并且他变得更好了。问题是如何知道那是你的祈祷。也许这是他的家人和亲人的祈祷。也许这是他们自己的祈祷。但是谁会停下来问我这些问题呢?那些人是在教皇面前康复了吗?立刻康复了吗?是一个不可思议的治疗吗?那些才是你应该问的问题。但事实是,当某人精神稳定,这些奇迹天天都会发生,且你和天主有关系。当你们有了真正的关联,如果你的背有点疼,你可以祷告,你可以这样说,“上帝请宽恕我,无论我做过什么。”如果是一般财务问题,正好问问“宽恕我今生或另一个生命涉及到金钱的一切事情,给我灵异的征兆,告诉我该怎么做。”。并且我谈到核心问题,当你不接受其他的化身的时候,在你接受真正的精神的治疗之前,你需要有其他生命的经历,并且他们需要治愈。因为直到这个记忆被消除前一个人无法完全爱自己。再者,你不能和神有一个真正的关系,那种亲密的、神圣的、那种热量通过身体的、温暖的关系。如果你的化身基因未得到净化,在任何情况下,你可能扮演神的角色。再者你更有可能通过坏死基因移交给你的亲人或其他人因为复仇仍在那个基因上。你们说 “嗨!我们不能接受我有其他化身的事实,因为首先我必须履行复仇。”而上帝是爱天主教徒也是爱其他人的,但他希望看到世界的改变,而且是让世人变得更富有同情心。为了做到这一点,所有的教堂和宗教必须接受我们有许多化身的事实。

4、当你不接受其他化身的时候,你可能在理智上被驾驭了。当你用伪科学伤害他人时,如果你注意这是很容易观察到的。很多科学家今天已经脱离了上帝,他们的化身基因充满了不好的原料,他们也不想回去那里,可是在他们的潜意识层面上有那么多的报复。这是关于他们再次深入太初镜子看到自己的恐惧。在镜子里是很容易看到的,任何人你抱怨、批评、判断,都是你的(镜像)真实写照。这是同样的问题你需要在这里被治愈的原因。当你谴责你可能有其他化身这一事实的时候,你更有可能制造业力返应,因为你脱离了你的情绪。当你为别人做重要的决定时,你不能感觉情绪上的痛苦,尤其是如果你是个政治家或世界领袖、一个科学家,而且你做这些重要的决策,给别人带来了伤害,因为脱节,你不能感觉到情绪上的痛苦,但是如果你净化了基因你可能不会做任何带来伤害的决策,至少你应该尽你所能不要带来伤害。有时,我们无法阻止神的数学方程;这是来自天堂的东西。

 

 

 

 

The Benefit of Accepting Other Incarnations


The Benefit of Accepting Other Incarnations

You tell me. Do you believe that there is a benefit? What do you believe? Do you believe this is our only life experience? What do you believe? For those who say this is the only life, we must be gentle to others, for they are the actors, we are the actors.  Forgive them for they do not know what they say. For they are controlled and they don’t how, why, and what, they just don’t know.

  1. What is the benefit to accept the fact that you have more than one life? To be connected to God. It means that on your gene (soul/spirit) level, you have accepted self- accountability and responsibility, that you have no revenge and that you may be partial. If you have in incarnation gene revenge, which memory comes from another life, it blocks you. You don’t want to go back to review what you may have done, so you shut them down. When you say you don’t believe in other incarnations, you’re saying that you don’t want to go back to another incarnation within the matrix and take a look at what you have done. Those who do not accept other incarnations are more likely to pass a compromised gene to their offspring. In other words make them sick, bring these horrible diseases into their offspring. Why? Because the gene says, “Ha!  There’re memories of revenge but on a conscious level, you have no idea. Subconsciously, you do.” This gene is passed forward, onward based on certain beliefs that you have aspired to throughout your many different incarnations.
  2. To accept the fact that you have had other incarnations means that you are more likely to be compassionate. It means, for example, you don’t have any revenge in your incarnation gene. You don’t have something that is saying to you, “You must fulfil your revenge either on yourself or on someone else.” That someone else could be your offspring, spouse, or anyone depending on what the spiritual contracts state and that you agreed to experience in this life. When you accept the fact that you have other incarnations, you recognise that your actions have consequences on a soul level, that you understand action and reaction, sowing and reaping. When you bring harm to others, you’re better off to go through a forgiveness process. When someone harms you, forgive them. As for those who don’t accept other incarnations, their ability to know Truth is on a heart level; their mind is impossible to know Truth. They create the perception that they can receive Truth on a heart level, but I can discern that their soul gene is compromised and is full of revenge, that you truly do not accept other incarnations,  but that you only say that you do.  Ninety per cent of the people in the world say that they accept there are other incarnations, it is only lip service; they really don’t. Who would be able to figure that out? There are a lot of people who claim that they are gifted and are talking about energy, but of the very few on this planet who can discern Truth, I am among three who can answer the question why. And that is very powerful. When that incarnation gene is free of that heavyweight of revenge, you are more likely to become a peacemaker, you won’t create conflict or war; you will do all you can to avoid them. Whereas on a personal level, you career, outside relationships with the government and other institutions, you will do all you can to avoid conflict. The whole idea of becoming more compassionate when you accept the fact that you have a gene that accepts other incarnations is that you don’t want to harm yourself or others. But when you say that you don’t accept other incarnations, you’re saying subconsciously that yes it is okay to harm someone else, and it is okay to harm yourself. It really means that you’re not spiritually grounded. You cannot be spiritually grounded if you do not accept this truth of having other incarnations.
  3. When you say that you accept other incarnations, you are able to accept a spiritual divine healing. That is powerful. That is why for example in the Catholic Church for someone to claim that they received a miracle, which is like once every ten years, and they put the person in for some psychological tests for the next five to ten years, but hey if you’re the Pope, and you’re getting ready to retire, you don’t go through the same scrutiny. He just puts on his rabbit hat and say, “Well, we’ve got a miracle!” I pray for this person and he got better. The question is how you know that it was your prayers. Maybe it was the prayers of your family members and the loved ones. Maybe it was their own prayers. But who stops to ask the question? Did that person recover in front of the Pope for example? Instantly? Was it a miraculous healing? They are the questions that you ask. But the fact is when someone is spiritually grounded, these miracles happen every day, and your relationship with the Christ, when you have that true relationship, you can pray and you get a little ache in your back, you can say, “Father forgive me for whatever I’ve done.” Usually financial issue, “Forgive me for what I’ve done in this life or another life involving money, and show me the signs, show me what I did.” Just ask. And we speak of the core issue, when you do not accept other incarnations, before you could receive a true divine healing, you need to have other life experiences and they need to be healed because one cannot love themselves completely until this memory is removed. Again, you cannot have a true relationship with God, that intimate, divine, that heat going through body relationship, the warmth, if you are not cleansed of that incarnation gene. In every case, you’re more likely to take on the role of God. And again you could pass this bad gene on to your children or someone else because the revenge is still in that gene. They are say, “Hey, I cannot accept the fact that I have other incarnations because I must fulfil my revenge first.” And Father loves Catholics and he loves everyone, but he would like to see the world change, and become more compassionate. For this to happen, all churches and all religions must embrace the fact that we have had many other incarnations.
  4. When you do not accept other incarnations, you are more likely to be intellectually driven. This is easily observed if you are paying attention when you have bad science doing harms to others. A lot of the scientists today have that disconnect from him, that their incarnation genes are filled with bad stuff, which they don’t want to go there, and they had so much revenge on a subconscious level. This is about fear again of looking into the matrix mirror. In the mirror it is very easy. Anyone you complain about, you criticize, you judge, that is your mirror. That is the same issue that needs to be healed within you. When you denounce the fact that there is a possibility of having other incarnations, you are more likely to create back karma because there is a disconnect from your emotions. You cannot feel emotional pain when you make important decisions for others, particularly if you are a politician or world leader, a scientist, and you make these important decisions that bring harm against others, you are not able to feel emotional pain because of the disconnect.  But if you had that gene cleared you likely would not make any decisions which would bring harm, at least you should try your best not to bring harm. Sometimes we cannot stop the math equation of God; it is something from heaven.

The Magic Number


Of all the numbers in the Arabic system the number 9 is a very special number, and there are 9 points.

  1. 9 is the highest number. Although we are used to counting from 1 to 10, the computer begins counting from 0 and goes up to 9 in the decimal system by convention.
  2. 9 is the highest number and is associated with utmost respect in China. All kings/emperors in China use the number 9 to represent their superior status, subject only to heaven.
  3. In the Book of Changes, the I Ching, 9 is the highest and the most superior. It symbolizes the male principle.
  4. 9 is the highest number in a decimal system.
  5. All multiples of 9 are made up of numbers that also can be summed up to 9. For example, 2×9=18=1+8=9; 3×9=27=2+7=9; 9×9=81=8+1=9; 12×9=108=1+0+8=9.
  6. 9 is the link between the decimal and the binary systems of numbering. For example, 9+1=10=ten (decimal) or two (binary).
  7. 9 to the power 2 equals 9 = the sum of 1 and 8 equals 18.
  8. 9 to the power 3 equals 9 = the sum of 2 and 7 and 9 equals 729.
  9. Buddhas and Hindu Yogis beads for monks are each made up of 108 beads equals 9.

做人做事做香灯


大华严寺华藏世界坛城


老狼兄发过来的对子是:
修心修行修道路,
积善积德积福荫。
礼天礼佛礼老子,
敬孔敬孟敬双亲。

而隆严对的是:
励志励言励人生,
做人做事做香灯。
朝圣朝山朝故里,
爱老爱幼爱比邻。

下面是隆严解释为什么要做香灯。

香灯两字,不是后继香灯的香灯。香灯是寺院里的出家人的一个职位。香灯是大雄宝殿负责晨钟暮鼓的师父,比谁都起的早,比谁都睡得晚。

“做人做事做香灯”,意思是:你要做香灯,先要把人把事做好,才有资格做香灯。它是与上一句“励志励言励人生”相呼应的渐进式对子。你想做香灯,你必须先把“励志励言励人生”做好。然后还有出家,所谓出家为天人师者,虽将相所不能为,斯大勇也。

香灯的职责隆严在大华严寺里是当过的。早上3点就要起床,上大殿清理佛桌坛城,打开门户,开亮射灯,然后在佛前供灯、供水、供香、供花、供果,到外面供天,回来打开经本,摆好法器,一切准备妥当后,又得出去敲响晨钟108响,叫大家起来,那时还是寅时呢,边敲钟还要边唱颂佛菩萨洪名。晚上戍时(9:40)过后,要击暮鼓三通,击暮鼓也是要唱佛菩萨的洪名的。然后,还要打安板,告诉大家可以入睡了。那时后我才锁上大门,熄灯,自己回寮房去。

一日做不好香灯,要在佛前求忏悔,拜108拜的。譬如,你没有按时击鼓鸣钟,误了大事,所以寺院的香灯职位,没有20年的修行功底,是不会轻易允许你做的。上面列举的各式各样行法都熟练了,还要获得方丈指派,才有机会当上香灯之职。一般当了,以后就不会再换了。
