智悲无二 林钰堂

古德修悲祈通智,观音经板文殊接;
护摩主尊妙吉祥,感应莅临观自在

今年陈上师示寂十三周年之文殊火供,曾有祥光闪烁之瑞应,已有诗〈祥光屡现〉志之。昨日佛友来访,出示当日照片,在火坛上方有观音菩萨之形象出现。陈师曾示,古德修悲多年,欲通空智,将观音经板上掷,以求将来得证之瑞应,蒙文殊示现接住,以示智悲无二。今于文殊火坛示现观音,更显本来融通之义。其中奥义,尤有进者﹕由智运悲而行救渡,三十二应普济群生,方是智悲澈底之通融。

Subject: Two More Poems in Calligraphy_翰墨两首:智悲无二、六字大明

Disciple Hong Fu spent 3 days to write up the request attached for these two poems. I like this kind of request, not because she spent such a long time, but because she expressed how these poems enlightened her and helped her. Thereby the significance of these poems to her was made very clear, and readers may benefit from her experiences.
弟子虹福花了三天的时间写了附呈之两首诗的提请文。我喜欢这类的提请并不是因为她花了那么长的时间来写,而是因为她表达了这些诗是如何令她觉悟并帮助她。因而这些诗对她的重要性都表达得很清楚,而读者们可能由她的经验而获益。

敬爱的师尊:

弟子于一九九七年读了「劝念佛」,蒙曾老师引荐,第一次向 师尊请法,师尊告以须对所有众生都慈悲,当时不甚明瞭。

师尊于二○○○年十月所造诗偈〈六字大明〉,跋中教示「以六音分别代表大悲及于六道之所有众生。自心随之而开展及于全法界,得以回归本来清净。再由本净自然发起渡生之万行,于持诵之际观想:六道皆蒙唤醒,离于迷妄,而同证本净,融入无限之一体」。弟子始恍然大悟。

二○○一年,弟子有机缘开始持修观音法门,平日以六字大明咒用功,故而敬谨提请师尊慈赐墨宝〈六字大明〉。

六字大明       岫慧提请

字字悲悯众生苦,慈怀开广弥法界;
本净深智启万行,声声唤醒愚痴迷。

再者, 师尊圆满了陈上师的〈净土五经会通〉演讲,弟子恭阅完毕,立即索阅所剩无几的《陈上师净土五经会通演讲笔录》;后来阅读《观音法门》,翻开第一页,即见文殊火供示现之观音圣像,非常欢喜,于今思之,正符师尊于二○○六年,应吴荣利师兄之请而造之〈法脉皈依境启请颂〉:「本来清净陈祖师 ,金刚莲华林上师;文殊观音正法脉,智悲融通传十方。」特此恭请师尊再书〈智悲无二〉一诗偈。

智悲无二       虹福提请

古德修悲祈通智,观音经板文殊接;
护摩主尊妙吉祥,感应莅临观自在。

弟子尚有一不情之请,二○○五年,弟子蒙师尊恩赐与「岫慧」相得益彰之名「虹福」,因此拟以「岫慧」提请师尊慈赐墨宝〈六字大明〉。以「虹福」之名提请师尊慈赐墨宝〈智悲无二〉,若无不妥,万分祈盼师尊见允!

敬颂
圣安


                     弟子虹福    顶礼

Oneness of Wisdom and Compassion Yutang Lin

An ancient sage practiced compassion to attain wisdom.
Up in the air Avalokitesvara's sutra received by Manjusri.
Fire puja offered to Manjusri on Yogi Chen's memorial,
Holy image of Guan Yin appeared to bestow blessings.

Comment:

This year we had the 13th memorial of Yogi Chen commemorated by a fire puja to Manjusri. During that fire ceremony there were auspicious flashing lights miraculously appearing for several times. A poem entitled "Lights Auspicious Flashing" was composed to record it. Yesterday Buddhist friends came to visit and showed photos taken then. In one photo, right above the flame that raised upwards, there appeared a clear image of a sitting Guan Yin. Yogi Chen taught that, there was an ancient sage who practiced compassion for many years in order to comprehend wisdom. One day this practitioner threw a printing block of Avalokitesvara's sutra up in the air, with the prayer that if he would eventually realize wisdom then this block would not come down. Immediately Manjusri appeared and received the sutra block. Manjusri comforted him by saying that he would eventually achieve his goal. This incident served to reassure the teaching that wisdom and compassion are inseparable. Now, during this fire puja to Manjusri, Guan Yin appeared to give blessing. This incident further illustrated the teaching that wisdom and compassion are originally in oneness. Furthermore, there is a even deeper meaning: Based on wisdom to carry out compassionate salvation activities, using suitable means to help all sorts of beings as Avalokitesvara is known to do, only then is the ultimate unity of wisdom and compassion.
