They will be included in the book Yu Tang You Yong as appendices because that book is a collection of my poems in my calligraphy.

弥恩:
没什么特别缘起的,就是当时想写而已。
简单的解释一下。颂里面包括了:

一、林上师经常教授的几个观念:法界是无限的一体;一切本来清净;智慧和悲心圆融不二。

二、向三身上师祈请:法身金刚总持、报身观自在、林上师是化身。

把四句颂平排,就可以看到:
(1)前三句头两个字组成「法界无限一体」。
(2)前三句第三第四个字组成「本净智悲圆融」。
(3)第一句第五个字开始的金刚总持是法身,第二句的「持莲花」(Padmapani)就是观自在或者观世音的异名,在一些密法系统里观自在作为报身,第三句的化现居士就是化身。

前三句就这样包含了法义和向三身的祈请。

第四句就是祈请加持。祈求的是加持行者见到法性;不用枝叶,就直指根源。本面也就是禅宗说的「本来面目」。

弟子  林成穗

Supplication to Guru Yutang Lin Disciple Stanley Lam

Arising from original purity of Dharmadhatu, Vajradhara
Limitless wisdom and compassion, activities of Padmapani
Oneness in harmony emanates an Upasaka’s form.
Please reveal my original face, to you I pray!

(Note: Padmapani is a name for Guan Yin.)


Written in Chinese and translated by the disciple named Stanley Lam
On July 21, 2004
Day of the First Turning of the Wheel of Dharma by Buddha Shakyamuni according to Tibetan calendar


This supplication includes:

1.Several concepts that Guru Lin often teaches: Dharmadhatu is limitless-oneness; all are originally pure; wisdom and compassion are one in union.
2.Supplication to Three-Kaya Gurus: Vajradhara as Dharmakaya, Avalokiteshvara as Sambhogakaya, and Guru Lin as Nirmanakaya.

When the four lines are aligned (in Chinese), we can see that:
i.The first two characters of the first three lines read: Dharmadhatu (is) Limitless Oneness.
ii.The third and fourth characters of the first three lines read: (In) original purity, wisdom and compassion are (united) in harmony.
iii.From the fifth characters of the first line, Vajradhara is Dharmakaya. Padmapani in the second line is another name for Avalokiteshvara, who is also Samboghakaya in some Vajrayana teachings. Upasaka's form is Nirmanakaya.

Hence, the first three lines include Dharma meanings and supplication to Three Kayas.

The fourth line is to pray for blessings. What is being prayed is for the practitioner to be able to comprehend Dharmata by reaching directly to the root without going through branches and leaves. “Original Face” is something that Chan Buddhism often talks about.
