颇瓦渡亡
Powa Saves Deceased Beings

 

弟子来电邮,求开示颇瓦法对亡者的重要性,以便具有正确的修法动机,并且增长慈悲。她说,虽然自己能察觉坟场亡者众都重视及欢迎她播放我修颇瓦的录音带,却不明白此中的道理,并且也不了解颇瓦加持过的米对亡者有何用途,请我说明。

亡者随所造宿业,或罪或福,而流转六道;必须等到宿业消尽,才能超脱轮迴。具证德之修行人修颇瓦法,基于纯正菩提心,传递诸佛菩萨及历代传承祖师之加持力量,能为亡者众消业,令得回归本来清净。但是众生业障深浅各异,以致各别领到的加持效果也有差别,所以有些一经修法便得往生,而有些则需多修几次,并多做功德,方得清净。

颇瓦加持过的米,简称「颇瓦米」,对亡者众来说,便是佛法加持之甘露,领之便得消业增福之利益。所以我们在坟场及亡者遗体上都可撒之。

愿以此说明,帮助具有正信之大众,早得解脱轮迴之道!

Powa Saves Deceased Beings

 

A disciple sent me an email asking for teachings on the importance of Powa service to deceased beings so that people will have correct motivation in participating in this service and thereby cultivate compassion for deceased beings. She wrote, even though she is able to sense that all deceased beings in the cemeteries welcome and pay attention to her playing the audio tape of me practicing Powa; however, she cannot comprehend why it is so. Besides, she also fails to comprehend what is the use of Powa-blessed rice to the deceased beings, and she asked me to explain it.
Deceased beings transmigrate in the six realms of life-and-death according to their karmas, sinful or meritorious; not until all karmas are extinguished can they become free from such transmigration. When Dharma practitioners who have attained realizations conduct Powa service, based on genuine Bodhicitta, they can thereby convey the blessing powers of all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and lineage Gurus to extinguish karmas of the deceased beings so that they may resume their original purity. However, sentient beings have variegated degrees of karmic hindrances, and consequently, the resulting effects of having received the Powa blessing also varies. Therefore, for some one service is enough for gaining rebirth in Pureland, while for some it will take several Powa services and additional accumulation of merits to become fully purified.

Rice blessed by Powa service are called ″Powa rice″. To deceased beings, they are blessing nectar of Dharma because receiving them will result in reduction of karma and accumulation of merits. Therefore, on cemetery grounds or bodies of deceased beings we may scatter Powa rice.

May this explanation serve to help people with correct faith to reach the path of liberation from transmigration sooner!
