「霁」印 林钰堂

梦见「霁」印兆若何?法露等雨济群生;
云消烟散灌溉后,普天同享霁后晴。

北京王居士尝于梦中见「霁」字印,请余解之。「雨、齐」当为平等润泽之义,故解为以法雨甘露普济群生。「雨霁天晴」,故又有烟消云散(出离尘扰)后普天同享无云晴空之义。彼既有此吉祥法印之梦兆,余即顺缘请彼于暇时刻石,以志此梦示。

Seal of Ji

Seal of Ji


Seal of Ji Yutang Lin

Seeing a seal of word Ji in a dream, what be the omen?
Shower Dharma nectar equally on all beings to benefit.
After the irrigation clouds vanish and smokes disperse;
All in the world share the sunny sky after rain stopped.

Comment:

Upasaka Wang in Beijing once saw a seal of the Chinese word Ji in a dream, so he asked me to explain it to him. The Chinese word Ji consists of the word Yu (rain) on top and the word Qi (even) below. Hence, the dream should be conveying the meaning of showering equal benefit. Therefore, I interpreted the dream to signify showering Dharma nectar equally on all sentient beings so as to benefit them. One original meaning of the word Ji refers to the sunny sky after rain just stopped. Hence, there is also an additional meaning of, after the clouds dispersed and smokes vanished (after having renounced worldly concerns), all in the world will share the cloudless sunny sky (signifying the attainment of Dharmakaya). Since he had received this dream omen of such an auspicious Dharma seal, I acted in accordance with the dream by asking him to carve such a stone seal in leisure. Thereby this teaching through a dream would be pronounced.
