圆满供施简轨

 

林钰堂

 

 

  1. 陈列供品,唸「嗡 阿 吽」加持之,令变多、变净、成甘露。
  2. 观全法界四圣六凡,一切有情皆现于前。
  3. 观全法界所有胜妙供品皆圆摄入所陈供品之内。
  4. 观此等供品先呈于诸佛、菩萨、等圣众前。彼等于受用满足之后,欣喜此供所含之菩提大心而放光回施,加持所有供品成为能令众生离苦得乐、早证菩提之上妙甘露。
  5. 观以此等甘露普施六道一切众生,令得满足。彼等于受用之后,业障清净,趋入佛道,并能精进不懈、永不退转。
  6. 以此圆满供施功德,回向一切有情体会一切无常,无可执着,而得意消心开,早证圆满觉悟。

此轨可应用于一切供施之上,而不为供施之方式所局限。若能了悟受供者、供品及供者皆为无限一体之显现,即可超越对立,而由三方之本来无限,圆融一切于一体中。

Simple Ritual for Complete Offerings

 

Guru Yutang Lin

 

  1. Arrange offerings, and then repeat the mantra "Weng A Hong" to bless them, so that they become multiplied in quantity, purified into original purity, and transformed into nectars.
  2. Visualize that all beings in the whole Dharmadhatu, from the four levels of holiness (Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Pratyekabuddhas and Arhats) to the six realms of worldly beings (heavenly being, Asuras, human beings, animals, hungry ghosts and hell beings), appear in front of the practitioner.
  3. Visualize that all wondrous and sublime objects of offering are completely absorbed into the offerings that have been arranged in front.
  4. Visualize that all these offerings are first presented to Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and the rest of the holy beings. After they have enjoyed the offerings to their full contentment, they become delighted by the Bodhicitta that is inherent in this offering, and hence they emit lights as reward, and these lights bless all the offerings into superb wondrous nectars that will enable sentient beings to escape from sufferings, attain happiness and realize full enlightenment soon.
  5. Visualize that all these nectars are equally offered to all beings in the six realms of transmigration to their full gratification. Having enjoyed them, the sentient beings become purified of their karmic hindrances, engaging in Dharma practices, and they become capable of diligent practices without sagging, and never regress on the enlightenment path.
  6. Dedicate the merits of this complete offering to all sentient beings, so that they will realize that all are impermanent, and nothing can be hold onto, and consequently their personal intentions fade away and minds become open, and thus soon attain perfect awakening.

This ritual is applicable to all kinds of offerings, without being confined by the details of the particular offerings. If the practitioner can comprehend that the beings who receive offerings, the objects offered and the offerer are all manifestations of limitless oneness, then duality will be transcended, and all will merge into oneness through the original limitlessness of all three parties.
