麻巴上师 林钰堂


令弟子密勒日巴
盖房子
盖了又拆 拆了又盖
折磨到半死
其实只是为了消其罪业
以便在清净的基础上
令其易于达到大成就
心中怜悯 不舍弟子如此受苦
而私下垂泪
这样智悲圆融
而能施展无情的金刚手腕
令后来真诚的密法弟子们
垂泪敬仰

投入修行的密乘弟子
极易不断遭遇世俗的阻障与责难
就将这些施予折磨的有情
都观成麻巴上师的化现吧
比起密勒日巴的折磨
我们还是在温室里享福的
除了感谢他们的加持消业
就只有更精进努力了

麻巴上师


Guru Marpa

Yutang Lin

 

Ordered disciple Milarepa
To build several stone huts
After completion of one then to tear it down
And after torn down one to rebuild another one
Torturing him thus till he is half-dead
Indeed the intention was simply to extinguish his sinful karma
So that, upon a foundation of renewed purity
The disciple could readily attain great accomplishments

Pitiful inside, could not bear torturing the Dharma son to such extent
And shed tears behind others' eyes
So harmonized in wisdom and compassion
And yet still capable of applying Vajra means without reservations
Thus render sincere disciples of Vajrayana who come later
All shed tears in admiration

Disciples of Vajrayana who devoted their lives to Dharma practices
Quite often encountered worldly hindrances and criticisms
Simply regard all these sentient beings that conferred sufferings
As transformations of the graceful Guru Marpa
Compared with the sufferings that Milarepa endured
We are still enjoying good fortunes in greenhouses
Besides thanking them for blessings to reduce our karma
We could only exert more efforts diligently toward enlightenment
