       沿於傳統,自340多 年前起,敏卓林寺於結夏安居期間,全寺僧眾虔修釋迦牟尼佛暨十六位主要阿羅漢弟子之祈禱法會,並致力於供養明燈數十萬盞。全寺參加修法的比丘及比丘尼超過 500位。每日從清晨五時起始,虔敬修法至傍晚六時。

晨間之修法以釋尊暨十六位阿羅漢之祈禱法會為主;下午則舉行莊嚴豐隆之盛大薈供,以利眾生積聚資糧,同時,下午亦修有超度法會以度拔超薦往生者;晚間則舉行供養地神及瑪哈嘎啦法會,並將一日虔敬修法之所有功德迴向世界和平、長壽、繁榮等一切安樂予以有情眾生。

     由於苦痛即如身陷黑暗無明處,而明澈之淨光正猶如太陽照破幽闇苦難,故而供燈是得獲智慧、救助有情眾生解脫困境、協助往生者往生善趣與積聚資糧、財富的好方法。

大圓滿的教法中亦云:點燈的功德力量,和眾生的心光是相等無差別的,如果不明白點燈的意義,則無法瞭解大圓滿的教法,我們必須使內心如同點燈功德般的清淨明亮和廣大無邊。

《無量壽經》也說:「為世之燈明,乃人間最勝之福田。」;《菩薩藏經》中則云:「百千燈明,懺除悔罪」。

 

於佛前點燈,是願點燃心燈,並藉著諸佛加持之光明,照破自心中幽闇無明處,以期心生慧解,成就智慧波羅蜜。《大集經》中就這麼說過:「許多眾生心行無明愚痴,佛見了,乃教他們同修智慧,令人人點燃智慧之燈。」《華嚴經》也說:「慧燈可以破諸闇。」

 

《菩薩藏經》中說:「燃點十千燈明,以懺滅眾罪業」,十千即是萬。願能藉由供燈之善緣緣起,期使照破痴迷,增上福慧。

燈供具有不可思議之功德力,祈請十方共襄護持~~經云:「齋僧一缽,獲福無窮。」;齋僧燄續佛燈,崇德報恩,饒益法界有情http://tw.myblog.yahoo.com/theeasternsun-khenchen/article?mid=3433&prev=3909&next=3212&l=f&fid=5 ( 歡迎參考 : 2011 summer retreat/以四聖諦點燃心燈 )

【尊貴的  敏林堪千仁波切於安居前捎來的叮嚀】

 

Vassa ( 雨、結夏安居 )乃源自巴利文vasso、梵語varsah,亦稱為雨安居( Rains Retreat) 。佛教徒於雨季時節奉行為期三個月的安居。於此期間僧尼皆安住於精舍或寺廟。在某些寺院,僧眾於雨季致力於密集禪修,一些佛教的居士則於雨季期間選擇致力於較多禁欲的修持,諸如禁食肉品、禁酒與禁菸。(不於雨季外出雲遊,以避免行者於雨季誤踐作物、傷害蟲蟻生靈甚至自身,此乃印度拖缽修道者長久以來的習俗。)此傳統據說源自釋迦牟尼佛時代,如同佛陀時代其他苦行傳統,佛陀允應要求,將弟子暫時安置於室內並取消外出,亦於此期間精進禪修,並懺悔自身錯誤、學習與教授佛法。

 

今年度敏卓林結夏安居將自藏曆六月十五日展開,至藏曆七月三十日圓滿。( 註:2012/8/2~9/16 ) 

無論做任何事,首當檢視自心的動機。動機十分重要,

 

不要掺入任何偽善的念頭,倘若發現動機不純,則要自我修正。

 

正如巴楚仁波切要求弟子,做任何事前,要把這一句「調整動機」的偈頌,

 

先唸一串念珠,再來聽聞教法或做任何事情!

 

第二,為自己和他人祈福。

 

當僧尼從事結夏安居,居士行者也可於此期間藉由素食、更多的禪修和法的練習以自我精進。儘可能不傷害任何生靈、累積更多福慧資糧、研讀更多佛法書籍以瞭解更多佛法智識,接受佛法教導、觀修所學,並永遠提醒自己注意自身作為。為往生者與眾生祈福;以上都是居士者可做的修持。所做不論大小,懇請恆常「功德迴向」眾生。

 

迴向十分重要。

 

我希望大家都能瞭知,「功德迴向」是佛法中一項至關重要且深奧的靈性修行,於佛陀的教導中是非常獨特的觀點,不存於其他行式的靈修。

 

我們仍處於輪迴的痛苦,乃由於沒有累積福慧資糧。雖然我們累世做了許多善行,但卻未將功德迴向眾生,以祈達至開悟。從而導致善因之果成熟時產生短暫的良好狀態或快樂,並隨即消失。是以功德殆盡時,我們失去快樂並又輕易的墜回痛苦。

 

藉由我們的功德迴向一切有情究竟開悟,雖然我們也能依此功德而經歷善果,然而直至一切有情達到究竟菩提,功德不會因此消失。故而功德的迴向正如同將一滴水溶入大海。大海永不乾涸,滴水也不曾消失;而我們的功德正如滴水之匯入浩瀚大海。

 

吾人需將功德迴向的另一原因,乃緣於佛法教義中提及,億萬的慷慨美德與道德紀律會因一把無名火而摧毀功德林。

 

我們也可能於下列境況而破壞功德:

 

 1. 驕傲地誇耀自己的善行。 2. 懊悔(例如懊惱捐獻)

 

此作為不但破壞自身善德,更可能令吝嗇的負面的印記導致輪迴為餓鬼、出生貧困等之業因。因此,及時將功德迴向是十分重要的,每個人在行善後應記得即刻將功德迴向,因為負面的情緒與情況可能隨時產生並破壞功德。

 

此外,倘若我們將功德迴向,功德與日益增;一如惡業之隨日增加,迴向的功德亦是隨日增上,其善果將臻大於初始之善。譬如《般若經( The Sutra of Twenty-Five Thousand Stanzas )中提及:將小善德之功德迴向一切有情究竟之證悟,其功德遠大於終生供養世上所有的羅漢和辟支佛,卻未曾將功德迴向。

 

是以鄙人(敏林堪千仁波切)企盼、並祈禱大家今年能更加致力於修行佛法,以期對教法增上更深體悟。


 

生命中凡事無常且無可預料,是以當我們擁有能力,能夠有所作為的造福自他,我認為以此優先行之乃明智之舉。

 

我們都知道,似水年華逐年老去、青春不再。

 

有些人卻因事務或工作,總是四處奔忙,沒有足夠的時間坐下或用膳。故而值此結夏安居之際,鄙人期盼大家能坐下來思考自己是如何的過生活?做這麼多的目的是甚麼?因為最終仍是走向死亡。而當死亡來臨之際,又能帶走甚麼?趁此際仍有思考能力時,應當立即思考這些問題,這是非常重要的。

 

有些人認為佛法意謂着老者、僧尼等等。有些人則想著:待其退休後修習佛法。

 

然而,卻是沒有任何人能保證是否可以活到那一天,

 

也無法保證屆時尚有時間修習佛法啊!

 .............
Vassa (from Pali - vasso, Sanskrit varṣaḥ,both "rain" - also called Rains Retreat is the three-month annual retreat observed by Buddhist practitioners. Taking place during rainy seasons, Vassa lasts for three lunar months. During the time of Vassa, monks and nuns remain in monasteries and temples. In some monasteries, monks dedicate the Vassa to intensive meditation. Some Buddhist lay people choose to observe Vassa by adopting more ascetic practices, such as giving up meat, alcohol, or smoking. It was a long-standing custom for mendicant ascetics in India not to travel during the rainy season as they may unintentionally harm crops, insects or even themselves during their travels. It is said that the tradition began during the time of Shakyamuni.,so like other ascetic traditions of his day, the Buddha responded to requests to have his disciples to take up temporary residence in one location rather than wandering about. This period of time is used for intensive meditation practice, and repented their errors,study and teaching.

This year summer retreat in Mindrolling will began on the 15th of the 6th Tibetan lunar month and end on the 30th of the 7th lunar month.

Before Summer retreat , I would like to share you all :
No matter what one does, he/she should always check his/her motivation first. 
Motivation is very important . 
Always correct ones motivation , if it is negative or hypocrisy . 
Just as H.H.Partul Rinpoche will ask his disciples to perform gatha chanting (for a time lapse of 108 beads) in advance to adjust his motivation before accepting teaching or doing anything.

Second, see one’s wishes for oneself and others.
As the monks and nuns stay in summer retreat, lay practiseners can also participate by being vegetarian, and doing more meditation or dharma practices. If it is possible, try not to harm any beings. Accumulate more merits. Read more dharma books to get more information on dharma, or receive teachings, and try to meditate on the teachings. Always remind oneself to be aware of one’s actions. Pray for the dead and also for living beings. These are practices which a lay person can do. No matter what one does, big or small, please always dedicate the merits to all sentient beings.

Dedication is very important. 
I hope you all can realize , the dedication of merit taught in the Buddhadharma is one of the most vital and profound part of spiritual practice and a unique aspect of the Buddha’s teachings, which is not found in the other forms of spirituality.
The reason why we are still suffering in samsara is that we have not gathered the accumulations of merit and wisdom. Although we have performed numerous positive deeds over many lifetime, we have never dedicated this merit to the achievement of full enlightenment for all sentient beings. Thus when the positive karma ripens, it simply leads to some temporary positive states or happiness which will be used up in time. Therefore, when our merit finishes, we will lose that happiness and simply fall back into suffering.
By dedicating our merits to supreme awakening for all beings, although we will also experience positive results and well-being from that merit, it will not be used up until the ultimate aim of your dedication, which is supreme enlightenment for all beings, is achieved. Thus, dedicating our merit is like adding a drop of water to an ocean, and the ocean never dries up, and the drop of water is never exhausted. The ocean is likened to the vastness of the purpose to which our merit (a drop of water) is directed to.

Another reason why we dedicate our merits is because in the teachings it is said that ‘a hundred eons of generosity and moral discipline can be destroyed in one moment of anger’.
We might also spoil our merits by the following ways:
1. Boasting of our positive deeds out of pride
2. Regretting, e.g., regretting a donation not only destroys your virtue but may also lead to negative imprints of stinginess leading to karmic results like rebirths as hungry ghosts, poverty etc.

Therefore, it’s very important to dedicate merits in a timely manner, ie. after one performs positive deed, one should try to remember to dedicate the merits immediately as negative emotions or other conditions that lead to spoilage of merit can arise at any time.

Furthermore, if we dedicate our merits, the merits increase every day. Just as negative karma increases everyday, dedicated merits increase every day so the fruition of the virtue becomes greater than the initial merit. 

For example, the Sutra of Twenty-Five Thousand Stanzas says that there is more virtue and power in dedicating a small virtuous action to full awakening than sponsoring this entire world filled with Arhats and Pratyekabuddhas their entire lives without dedicating your merit.
So I hope and pray that this year people could make more effort of strengthening their dharma practices to deeper understanding.

Everything is impermanence so is our life, which is unpredictable. So when we have the ability to make a difference to benefit oneself or others, I think it is wise to give more priority to it. We all knew that , each year we are getting older and not young anymore.But ,Some people don’t have enough time to sit and eat, always working or moving because of their jobs and work. 

So this time just for this summer retreat, I hope people can just sit and think how one is living a life. What is the purpose of doing so much and ultimately one dies, and what one can take with him/her when he/she dies. This is very important to think now when one has the ability to think. 
Some people think dharma is meant for older people or for monks and nuns etc., or some think they will practice dharma when they retire.

However, no one can guarantee if he/she will live that long, or he/she will have time to practice dharma.
