You are in truth

The combination

Of billions of Victors;

 

I bow to your feet,

My Lama,

With great respect.

 

And then now shall I set down

A ceremony for taking the vows

Of cleaning and restoring,

Within the greater way.

 

您事实上是

数十亿胜者的结合

 

上师,

带着崇高的敬意

我向您礼敬。

 

而现在我将写下

大乘长净戒的受持仪式。

By now you must be aware of this pain, and the source from which it flows—problems as bottomless as the ocean, and just as wide.

至今,你必须意识到这种痛苦,以及它所流自的源头——如海洋般深不见底,并且同样广泛的问题。

Judging from your own situation, you can easily imagine the misery of your aged mothers: living beings, who stretch as far as space itself.

根据自身的情况,你可以轻易地想象年迈母亲们的苦难:遍布整个虚空的一切众生。

And it is for you, and people like you—for those fortunate ones, who aspire to reach enlightenment—that I offer my instructions for performing the rite of cleaning and restoring, here in the greater way.

而为了你,和像你这般的人——那些渴望获得证悟的有缘者——我提供指导,在此执行大乘长净戒仪式。

Rise at daybreak—at a time of day when you can first see the lines on the palms of your hands—and wash well.  Then, in a place which is clean and lovely, set up an altar; and upon it representations of the Three Jewels.

破晓时起身——在一天当中首次可以看到手掌纹路的时刻,并清洗干净。接着在一个洁净美丽的地方布置一个供台,在上面摆设三宝的代表。

Now set forth offerings of high quality, and great beauty—the best you can afford.  Seat yourself before the altar, in an attitude of great respect, and repeat the following words three times, with deep feelings of going for shelter, and the Wish for enlightenment:)

现在,陈列优质且极美的物品——在你承受范围内最好的。怀着崇高的敬意坐在供台前,带着深切的皈依之心以及证悟之愿,复诵三次以下的字句:)

I go for shelter

To the Buddha,

To the teachings,

And the highest of assemblies.

 

To accomplish the goals

Of myself and others,

I bring into my heart

The Wish for enlightenment.

 

我向佛陀、

教导、

以及众圣寻求庇护。

 

为达成自身及他人的目标,

我心怀证悟之愿。

Heed my words,

Buddhas and bodhisattvas

Living in every corner

Of the entire universe;

 

From this moment on,

I bring within my heart

The Wish for enlightenment,

To become a perfect Buddha.

 

(x3)

 

宇宙间

无所不在的

诸佛及菩萨,

关注我的言语;

 

从此刻起,

我心怀

证悟之愿,

以成为圆满的佛陀。

 

(复诵三次)

You may always take this one-day vow by yourself, before an image of a holy being upon an altar—and the following ceremony is mainly written for that.  If though you are taking the vow directly from your Teacher, you can insert at this point an offering of the mandala: a perfect world.  Do this as follows—

你总是可以在供台上一幅圣者像前,自己受这一日戒——以下的仪式主要是为此而写。倘若你直接从上师处受戒,可以在此加入供曼荼罗:一个圆满的世界。做法如下——

Here is the great Earth,

Filled with the smell of incense,

Covered with a blanket of flowers,

 

The Great Mountain,

The Four Continents,

Wearing a jewel

Of the Sun, and Moon.

 

In my mind I make them

The Paradise of a Buddha,

And offer it all to You.

 

By this deed

May every living being

Experience

The Pure World.

 

在这充满焚香与花海的壮阔土地上,

 

披戴着日月装饰的须弥山与四大洲,

 

在心中

我将它们化为佛国净土,

并供养给您。

 

透过此善行

愿一切众生

体验这纯净的世界。

The teacher, on their part, should take care to explain in detail the various visualizations and states of mind to be held as we go through different sections of the ceremony.

老师那方应详尽解释在仪式进展中的各种观想,以及该持有什么心态。

Next make offering:

接着供养:

 

 

The very ground

Of the entire planet

Becomes suddenly smooth

As the palm of your hand,

Without a single stone—

A vast surface

Made of lapis lazuli,

Yet soft to the touch.

 

整个星球的地基,

霎时变得像手掌般柔顺,

毫无一粒沙石——

广阔的表面由青金石所构成,

触感却是柔软的。

The entire expanse

Of the sky above

Is suddenly covered

In clouds, the gifts

Of Perfect Goodness

Unsurpassed—

All things ever offered

By gods and humankind,

Some set here before me,

And others inside my mind.

 

广阔的天空之上

霎时被云朵覆盖,

这是普贤菩萨的无上供养——

所有天人与人类曾供养的事物,

一些放置在我面前,

其余在我的意识里。

I call upon the truth

Of the Three Jewels;

Of every Buddha,

And every bodhisattva;

 

I call upon

The magnificent might

Of the two collections,

Total and complete;

 

I call upon

The absolute purity

Of the Realm of Is;

 

And by their inconceivable power

May all this actually be.

 

我祈请三宝之真理;

 

祈请诸佛与诸菩萨加持;

 

祈请二资粮全然且完整的宏大之力;

 

祈请清净法界纯粹净化之力;

 

透过他们不可思议之力,

祈愿此念成真。

Now request your own Lama, that being who has been so kind to you, to come before you as the Teacher: as the Lord of the Able Ones.  Around him or her are seated all the victorious Buddhas of the entire universe, along with their own sons and daughters—the bodhisattvas.  They are really here!

 

Then say:

 

现在祈请对你很有恩德的上师来到面前,化现为本师释迦摩尼:能仁。 在他周围围绕着所有宇宙的胜者佛陀,连同他们自己的儿女——诸菩萨。他们真的在此!

Along with those who attend you.

带着服侍您的众人

I throw myself down

Before every Victorious Buddha—

And by the power of the Prayer of Perfect Goodness,

May each of them see directly in front of them

Copies of me equal in number

To the atoms of the universe,

Each one bowing in perfect devotion.

 

我拜服于

每位胜者佛陀之前——

与宇宙中原子数量相等之我的身相,

每个我皆以虔敬之心礼敬。

At this very moment,

Buddhas equal in number

To the atoms of the universe

Are sitting surrounded

By their bodhisattva sons and daughters

Inside every atom there is.

 

I close my eyes and see

Every emptiness there is

Filled to overflowing

With all the victorious Buddhas.

 

此刻

在每一个原子中

都有跟宇宙中原子

数量相等的佛陀

由他们的菩萨子女们

围绕而坐

 

我闭上眼观看

所有空性之处

皆充满着胜者佛陀。

Of the oceans of this earth;

Sing of the high good qualities

Of every conquering Buddha.

 

我唱颂着

每个曾到达极乐的圣者

每股打在地球各个海岸的波涛声;

唱颂着

每位胜者佛陀

高尚优良的品格。

Overcome by ignorant liking,

Overcome by ignorant disliking,

And overcome by ignorance itself,

 

I have hurt others

In my actions and words and thoughts.

I here confess and admit, openly,

Each of these deeds, one by one.

 

被无明的喜欢征服,

被无明的憎恶征服,

被无明本身征服,

 

我曾透过我的身、语、意

伤害他人,

在此我坦然承认并忏悔,

这每一种子,一个接着一个。

In the good of all the Buddhas,

In the good of the bodhisattvas,

The good of the self-made ones,

The good of those still learning,

And the good of those whose learning is ended.

 

我为

所有宇宙中

所有众生的善行

感到喜悦——

 

随喜

佛陀的功德,

菩萨的功德、

独觉的功德、

有学的功德,

无学的功德。

You are shining lamps

On all the planets

In the darkness of the galaxy;

 

You came to your enlightenment,

The end of ignorant desire,

By following the steps of the path—

 

O Saviors, I beg every one of you

To turn the unsurpassable

Wheel of the Holy Dharma.

 

您是银河暗处

所有行星上

闪耀的灯,

 

遵循道次第,

您达到证悟,

无明欲望的尽头——

 

怙主啊,我向您们每一位祈请

转动那无上的

神圣法轮。

I know there may be some of you,

My Lamas, who might consider

Pretending to pass from this world

Into Your final nirvana;

 

But I join my palms at my heart

And beg you with my life

To stay instead in this world with us,

 

For billions of eons,

For eons equal in number

To the tiny pieces of dust

That make the ground of this entire planet.

 

All of us here

Still need your help,

And the happy life you give us.

 

我的上师们,

我知道您们其中有些曾想过

假装离开这世间

示现涅盘;

 

但我双手合十于心前

用我的生命祈请

请您留在这个世间与我们同在,

 

长达数十亿劫,

等同于充满

整个地球表面

微尘般数量的劫。

 

我们在此

仍需要您的帮助,

需要您赐给我们安乐的生活。

Thus have I bowed myself down,

And presented my gifts,

And admitted my mistakes;

 

I have taken joy in goodness,

I have asked my Lamas to teach,

And begged them to stay with me.

 

I must have planted thus

Some tiny quantity

Of positive karmic seeds—

 

And now I give them all away,

I dedicate them, every one,

To my coming enlightenment,

And all those I will help.

 

因此我礼敬您,

献上我的礼物,

承认我的过错;

 

我随喜功德,

我请求上师教授,

并祈请他们能与我同在。

 

我一定有种下过一些

微小数量的

正面的好业力种子——

 

现在我把他们全部给出去,

我把他们全部回向出去,

回向给我未来的证悟,

以及那些我将帮助的对象。

To sum,

总结,

 

I bow down,

With my body,

With my words,

With my thoughts;

 

And I offer

Every kind of gift there is,

Both here before me

And those my mind can create.

 

I confess

Every bad thing I have ever done,

And every vow I have broken,

For time with no beginning.

 

I take joy

In all the goodness ever done

By those who have seen emptiness,

And those who have yet to see.

 

I beg my Lamas

To stay perfect here in the world,

Until there is no one left

Within the cycle of pain.

 

And as you stay,

I beg you to turn

The Wheel of the Dharma,

For every suffering living being.

 

Then finally I dedicate

The seeds of all the good

Accomplished by myself and others

To the Great Enlightenment.

 

我顶礼,

用我的身体,

用我的语言,

用我的意识;

 

我供养

献上所有可能的礼物

包含所有我面前的

还有我意识所能创造的。

 

我忏悔

从无始以来

每个我曾犯过的错

每条我曾破的戒律。

 

我随喜

每个曾作过的善

那些曾直观空性的圣者所作的善

和那些还未直观空性者所作的善。

 

我祈请我的上师

请您留在这个世间,

直至所有众生皆已离开

苦的轮回。

 

您留在世间时

我祈请您

为所有受苦的众生

转动佛法之轮。

 

最后我回向

自己和他人所作的所有的善业,

回向给伟大的证悟。

With these words, you have offered the prayer in seven parts, in either its expanded or its abbreviated form.  Next, prostrate yourself three times; and as tribute for being granted the vows, offer either the full or the shorter form of the mandala—the world of perfection:

念诵完这些话,你已经做完七支供,无论是以详述或精简的形式。 接着,顶礼三次; 作为得到戒律的敬意,献上完整或简短的曼达—— 圆满的世界:

If you are wearing robes, then drop your shawl from your left shoulder.  Kneel now with your right knee to the floor, and join your palms.  Think to yourself as follows:

若你穿着僧袍,请脱下左披肩,从左肩部垂落。右膝着地,双手合掌。心中默念下文:

Well now.  I and every other living being in the universe—beings who stretch as far as space itself—have had countless chances, from time with no beginning up to the present moment, to experience the suffering of the cycle of pain in general, and more specifically that of the three lower realms.

现在,我和宇宙中的所有众生——遍布虚空的所有生命——从无始以来至今,有无数的机会经历总体的痛苦循环,或更确切地说下三道。

And yet in all this time, we have never felt even a single moment of real dismay, or even real inconvenience, about our condition.  We have lost ourselves to a terrible state of mind in which we hold pain to be pleasure, and hold things which are not themselves to be themselves.  And because of the power of these perceptions, we have come under the thrall of our karma, and negative emotions.

在此期间,我们甚至从未曾有一刻对身处的环境感到真正的沮丧,或真正的不便。我们自己迷失于可怕的境地,将痛苦视为欢乐,将不是他们本身的事物视为其本身。受这些感知之迫,我们遭受到自身业力及负面情绪的束缚。

And now again, helplessly, we will have to undergo this suffering of the cycle of life and of the lower realms—so difficult to bear—infinitely more times than we ever did before.

此刻再一次地,眼睁睁地,我们不得不经历生命的轮回之苦,以及下三道的痛苦——如此难以忍受——比我们曾经历过的还大无数倍。

And yet the fact is that none of the conquering Buddhas who have ever come in the past—Buddhas like Shakyamuni, and all the others—were beings who started out enlightened.

然而事实是,过去曾经来过的胜者佛陀们——比如释迦摩尼佛,和其他所有的佛陀——没有一位是一开始就证悟了的。

In the beginning they were just like us—living in the cycle of suffering.  And then each of them met with own spiritual guide; and due to the kindness of this guide, they were able to develop distaste for the wheel.

最初他们都和我们一样——生活在痛苦的轮回中。然后他们每一位都遇到了自己的精神导师;缘于这位导师的仁慈,他们才能心生对轮回的厌弃。

And then they began to feel love for every living being; and finally they developed the Wish for enlightenment.  With that, they decided to take on these vows of cleaning and restoring, here in the greater way.  And they honored these vows perfectly; and walked the path; and only then became Buddhas.

接着他们开始感到对所有众生的爱;最终升起了证悟之愿。以此愿力,他们决定受持大乘长净戒。他们很完美地尊崇这些戒律;践行此道;惟其如此方可成佛。

Now the same is happening with me: due to the kindness of my own spiritual guide, I have been able to meet with the teachings of the greater way.  If now I can grow within me the Wish for enlightenment, and then practice the path, then beyond a doubt I too can reach the state of enlightenment.

现在同样的状况也发生在我身上,因为我精神导师的仁慈,让我有幸能值遇大乘教法。如果我能升起证悟之愿,并实践这条道路,那毫无疑问地,我也可以达到证悟的境界。

Just so, there are certain people who are the closest of all my friends and family; ones who are completely indispensable for me, in every place and time—whether as I was in my original condition; or as I am now on the path; or as I will be when I reach the goal.

也因为如此,有那么一些与我最亲近、不可或缺的朋友与家人,不论在何时何地,不论是作为处于原本情境中的我,或是正在道上的我,或是未来达成目标的我。

They are the wishing jewel that will grant me each and every thing which is good; whether it be in his life, or in the life to come.  They are people who have cared for me here in the cycle of life, for time with no beginning—and who will continue to care for me until the last day of this wheel.

 

 

他们是赐予我所有美好事物的如意宝,不论是在他的现世或是来世。无始以来,他们在轮回中给予我照顾,一直延续到生命之轮的最后一天。

And so no matter what I will work now to attain the precious state of a fully enlightened Buddha, for the sake of each and every one of those living beings, who live scattered about the infinite expanse of the universe itself.

所以无论如何我都会努力去达到那个珍贵的圆满开悟的佛之境界,为利益遍布虚空的无边众生。

To attain this goal, I will in turn take on—here before the victorious Buddhas, and before their daughters and sons—the one-day vows of cleaning and restoration, according to the greater way.  And I promise to keep those vows until daybreak tomorrow.

为了达到这个目标, 我愿意依据大乘教导在胜者诸佛佛子面前,受持大乘一日长净戒,且我承诺持戒直到明日破晓。

Here now are the commitments you make for how you act after you have accepted the vow.  The enumeration of the commitments you are going to keep for the 24-hour period is divided, in the Treasure House of Higher Knowledge, into the following components:

In the one-day vow within the vows of individual liberation, there are four commitments in a group focused on giving up some action.  The first is (1) to give up killing any living creature, from an insect on up.

于别解脱近住戒(个人解脱戒,即八关斋戒)之一日戒中,有一组断除某些行为的四条戒律(戒支)。第一条(1)为不杀生,断除杀蝼蚁以上之生命。

 

 

89 Leave a comment on block 89 0

The second is (2) to give up stealing anything which is in the possession of someone else—anything from the leaf of a tree, on up.

第二条(2)为不偷盗,不偷取他人的财物,乃至树叶以上之财物。

The next component consists of (5) the single commitment to give up all forms of intoxicants.

下一支包含了(5)不饮酒,断除一切形式的让人迷醉的物品。

There are a number of elements in the next commitment, which is called (6) “giving up dance and the rest, and giving up garlands and the like.”  First is to give up dancing, singing, or playing music—or doing other such things—in a mindless way, and without any special spiritual purpose (such as making offering to the Three Jewels).

下一戒律包含数个要素,称为(6)“不跳舞唱歌及其他,不戴花蔓及类似的”。首先是戒掉因盲目以及无任何特殊修行目的(如供养三宝)的歌舞伎乐或类似行为。

94 Leave a comment on block 94 0

[94]

We also give up putting on garlands or jewelry out of some mindless motivation, or else desire or the like.  An exception here is jewelry that we wear on a regular basis already.

同时戒掉因盲目或欲求等动机而配戴花鬘或珠宝首饰,除了个人日常佩戴的珠宝饰物外。

And then finally there is giving up things like applying fragrances to our body.

最终则为戒掉以香油涂身。

96 Leave a comment on block 96 0

[96]

Next there is what we call (7) “the commitment relating to chairs and beds which are too luxurious.”  This relates to giving up sitting or laying on (without any compelling need) luxurious chairs or beds which are made with expensive materials like gemstone or precious metals; or even on those made of lesser materials (such as wood or the like), if they exceed a cubit (the length of your forearm and hand) in height.

下一条称之为(7)“不坐高广大床。”(若无迫切需要)不坐价高昂贵珠、玉金银等质地的椅或床,或高度过一肘以上(前臂及手掌之长度)木料等质地略低劣的床座。

Last is the commitment (8) not to eat food and certain drinks after noonthings like yogurt, milk, and the like; and rice or other dishes.  This then makes a total of eight commitments.

最后一条为(8)戒掉午后饮用乳、酪等物,以及食用米饭等餐食。这就是完整的八项戒律。

98 Leave a comment on block 98 0

[98]

As noted, the first four of these eight are said to constitute a component of morality; and then the fifth by itself is a component of mindfulness; while the remaining three are a component of spiritual hardship.  Here in the practice for cleaning and restoring in the greater way, they function in the same way.

如记录所述,此八戒中,前四条戒律组成道德的部分,第五条本身即为正念的部分,其余三条则为修行障碍部分。在大乘长净戒中,它们以相同的方式运作。

You might think to yourself then, “Are these vows no different than the one-day vow of individual freedom?”  The answer is that there is a huge difference between the two.

There are a great number of differences here: the ones you take the vows from are different; the person who takes the vows is different; the motivation is different; the ceremony used to take the vows is different; the way you observe the vows after taking them is different; and the way—in the end—that you achieve your goals is different.

这里有巨大的不同之处:你从谁那里得到戒律有所不同;受戒人有所不同;动机发心不同;受戒仪式不同;受戒后查看戒律的方式不同;你最后达成目标的方式不同。

Now how is it that the ones from whom we take the vows are different?  The one-day vows found in the commitments of individual liberation will form within you when you take them from anyone who possesses any class of these commitments—from a person with lifetime layperson’s vow on up.

我们从谁那里受戒是如何不同的呢?关于别解脱一日戒,当你从任何拥有任何级别的别解脱戒中的一日戒(近住戒)——从一个受了终身居士戒的人或以上受戒,那么此戒就会在你身上形成。

Here in the vows of cleaning and restoring in the greater way, though, the person from whom you take the vow must be someone who possesses vows of this same greater way.  And they will also form within you even if you take them before a holy image of some kind.

但在大乘长净戒中,给你授戒的那个人一定要是拥有同样的大乘长净戒的人。甚至如果你在某张神圣的佛像前受戒,戒体也会生成。

[103]

As for the person who takes on the vow, in the case of the one-day vows of individual liberation it is wrong for a novice monk or nun—or a full monk or nun—to take them.  In fact it would be inappropriate to the extreme, since when a novice monk or nun, or a full monk or nun, takes on the one-day vows of individual liberation—in the moment that they say “I commit to the eight components of this one-day vow”—then it causes them to lose their higher vows of individual liberation.

对于那个受戒的人来说,就别解脱一日戒而言,对于沙弥或沙弥尼,或全圆具足戒的僧人或僧尼,是不可以受此戒律的。当一位沙弥或沙弥尼,或全圆具足戒的僧人或僧尼,受了这个别解脱一日戒的时候,事实上是极其不妥当的,就在他们说“我受此一日戒的八戒”这句话时,这会导致他们失去原来的更高的别解脱戒的戒体。

It has been stated though that the one-day vow of cleaning and restoring in the greater way can be taken by any pure monk or nun.

但据说任何清净的比丘或比丘尼可以受持大乘长净戒。

 

 

105 Leave a comment on block 105 0

[105]

Now for the difference in motivation.  The one-day vow of individual liberation will form with a person if they take it with no more than thoughts of renunciation.  For the one-day vow of cleaning and restoring in the greater way, however, we must at the very least bring up, within our heart, the contrived form of the Wish for enlightenment; we have already covered this point above.

现在是动机之不同。人们可以仅仅用出离心念来受别解脱一日戒,戒体会生成。但是对于大乘长净戒之一日戒而言,我们必须至少在心中带出来造作的证悟之愿(菩提心),这一点我们之前已经讲过了。

 

 

106 Leave a comment on block 106 0

[106]

How do the two ceremonies for taking these vows differ?  The one-day vow in the commitments of individual liberation is received when one takes on—by repeating the wording three times—the eight components of this one-day vow, having begun the process by going for shelter; all as described in Word of Vowed Morality, and the Sutra of Establishment.

受此戒律的两个仪式有什么不同呢?在受别解脱一日戒时,通过重复念诵那些一日戒之八条戒律三遍,人们就获得戒体了,而通过寻求庇护(皈依)就已经开始了这个过程。毗奈耶和《安住经》中有讲述这一切。

 

 

107 Leave a comment on block 107 0

[107]

With the vows of cleaning and restoring here in the greater way, though, it’s completely different.  We take, as our model, the way that Buddhas of the past have done it, while they were still on the path; and we commit ourselves to a practice which emulates the life they lived.

但对于大乘长净戒而言,是截然不同的。我们则如诸佛修道位时所作,以其为榜样而受持,我们承诺一套效仿他们生活方式的修行方法而行为。

 

108 Leave a comment on block 108 0

[108]

As for the difference in how we keep the vows, there is no discussion in the one-day vows of individual liberation of how we must give up eating meat; whereas once we have taken the one-day vows of cleaning and restoring, we definitely have to give up meat.

就我们如何持戒的不同方式而言,在别解脱一日戒当中并没有描述我们必须如何断除吃肉食,然而一旦我们受了大乘长净戒的一日戒之后,我们绝对必须放弃吃肉。

 

 

109 Leave a comment on block 109 0

[109]

Now how, in the end, is the result of these two kinds of vows different?  A person who takes the one-day vow of individual liberation may aspire to the goals of any of the three different tracks.  If they feel an aspiration for the goals of one of the lower tracks, then what they achieve will be a lower goal.  If they feel and aspiration for the goals of the higher way, then what they achieve is a higher goal.

现在,持守这两种戒律的最终结果有何不同呢?一位守持别解脱戒之一日戒的人可能会对三乘中的某一道途的目标心生志向。如果他们有志于某一小乘修行道路的目标,那么他们就会达成小乘的目标。如果他们有志于大乘修行道路的目标,那么他们就会达成大乘的目标。

But when you take the vows of the cleaning and restoring in the greater way, you most certainly—unless you lose this motivation of the Wish for enlightenment—reach the goal of total enlightenment.

但当你持大乘长净戒,除非你放弃了达成证悟之愿的发心(菩提心),几乎可以肯定,你会达成全然证悟的目标。

And so—since the Buddha has deemed it so—people like full monks and nuns can also take this version of the one-day vow.  And then in other situations, related to the practice of fasting, it’s also the case that all kinds of practitioners—whether they have taken ordination vows or not—may take these vows before their Teacher or before a holy image, following the ritual that we have described above.

因此——由于佛陀应许了——已受全圆具足戒的僧人或僧尼也可以受这一种一日戒。在其他相关的斋戒修行的情形下,各类修行者——无论是否受过出家戒——都可以依照上述仪轨,在老师或佛像面前受戒。

And if then they keep well what they are supposed to keep, they will derive tremendous benefit; and if they don’t keep it, they will derive incredibly serious problems.

如果他们可以依律很好地持戒,他们会获得极大的收益;而如果他们不能持守,则会遇到难以致信的严重问题。

There are descriptions of people in the past who observed a single moral guideline for only half of each day, and then failed to observe it for the other half of each day.  From this, they derived exactly corresponding results.  You can learn this point from sources such as the Word of Vowed Morality, and the Sutra of A Hundred Deeds, where we hear the life stories of people like Shronakoti Karna, and Sangha Rakshita.

据记载,过去人们受持一日戒,若半日守护,半日未持。由此,他们会获得相应结果。在「毗奈耶」及「百业经」中,可以找到二十亿耳和僧护的相关真实故事。

Our body and mind are relatively healthy.  And this short, precious moment has arrived—just this once—when we might be able to do something good for ourselves, and for those around us.  If now we pass our days and nights in activities which have no real meaning, then it’s just the same as a poor man who travels to the Island of Jewels and returns empty-handed.

我们的身心都还算健康。简而言之,珍贵的时刻已然来临——就在此刻——我们应该能做些自利利他的事。如果我们在毫无意义的事情中虚度时光,那就如同一个穷困的人,身入宝山却空手而归。

Even every single day

You used a skillful method like this

To drink your share of the very heart

Of the highest of the ways.

By the good seeds of my efforts here

To do a thing of highest power

May infinite numbers of living beings

Become lords among the warriors:

Sons and daughters of the victorious Buddhas,

Undaunted in their search for freedom.

 

以我精进的善业

做最高力量的行为

愿无量的众生

成为勇士之王:

胜者佛陀的儿女们,

在追寻解脱的道路上勇敢无畏。

There is venerable nun of matchless faith from the nunnery of Gerpel Shi whose name is Lobsang Trinley Chukyi.  She noted that most of the texts available at present for performing this ceremony of cleaning and restoration in the greater way are rituals, for example, for fasting which include—at the beginning—the binding of the seal of pledge, according to the Lotus Family; as well as practices of prostration and offering ones body such as the one beginning with “Om sarva Tathagata”: all related largely to rituals of the Action Class of the secret teachings.

有一位拥有无上信心的女尼格贝吉尊洛桑赤列却吉。她记载说,现有的《大乘长净戒仪轨》,例如,斋戒——起始时——结莲花部手印;行礼拜并供养身体,而诵“嗡萨瓦达塔噶达”:大多与事部仪轨相关。

And she made me a request, including the offering of a mandala, saying that we needed a ceremony text written in prose: one which is practical to use for occasions when we are only performing the rite of cleaning and restoring, unrelated to those other practices.

她向我祈请,供养曼荼罗,并请求道,“我们需要仪轨文本:可以据此修行,这一修行仪轨是单纯的大乘长净戒仪式,与其他修行无关。”

And so this work has been set down in writing during the auspicious days of the waxing moon in the Month of Miracles—the first Mongol month—of the Wood Monkey Year (1944) by myself, whose name is Trijang Rinpoche: Darhan Holder of the Throne of Ganden, personal philosophical mentor to the High Lama.

我于木猴年(1944年)神变月——蒙历第一月——上弦月良日,一个吉祥的日子,撰写此作品。作者赤江仁波切:甘丹寺法座座主,大德的个人哲学导师。

These words are a nectar moon

That restores and stops low tide

In the sea of milk, the powerful deeds

Of the highest of all ways;

It cleans away the fiery heat

Of cherishing oneself.

 

此文犹如甘露月

恢复并停止

牛奶海的低潮,

这是最胜道中强大善行;

去除珍视自我的炙热火。

And we were drawn to it

By the fair winds of our willingness

To take responsibility

For every living being—

Our names are Lobsang Dargye,

Lobsang Lungtok, & Puntsok Hlawang.

 

以此大愿之风,

激励我们为每一位众生

承担责任

——洛桑达结,

洛桑龙图,庞措拉旺

By this good deed, may all of those

Connected in any way to the resources

That made this possible—

Persons passed away or else still with us—

Dive deep into the ocean waves

Of the deeds of the bodhisattvas;

 

愿以此功德

普及一切对此有所贡献的

资源相关的人——

已离开或仍与我们同行的人——

深入菩萨善行的海浪中;

May they travel with speed to the Jewel Isle

Of all three of those holy forms;

And then fulfil every one of the hopes

Of infinite living beings.

 

愿他们速速前往宝洲

以三种神圣的形式;

并圆满无量众生的

每一个愿望。
