忿寂百尊护轮
Hundred-deity Protection Wheel


弟子弥恩电邮来问:

上师
弟子在唐卡公众号中发现这张咒轮的出处是:
佩戴解脱——忿寂百尊护轮,14 世纪由噶玛林巴(Karma Lingpa)所取出之伏藏。

但咱们网站中的图是这样的:


说明: f0988%20adimandala


经仔细观察,网站中的图是黄颜色的图的镜像版,也就是图像和藏文都是反着的;您看有必要将网站的图进行调整为如下(将图片翻转)吗? 还是保持原样呢?

弥恩拜上

 

答: 问得好。这个问题,很多年前我也曾在偶然间注意到。

原先交佛友印制时,给的是金属刻版。但是承办者没有设备可用该刻版来印,就照相来印。然而,经手的都是不懂藏文的,所以也没看出是反过来的。其实是应该先用该版印一张,然后才照相,就不会弄反了。

虽然发现了这一点,我没有改动。因为,首先,并非有心搞反的。再来,密法的传续及功效,其实是完全基于以菩提心维护的传承,而不在于表相如何。所以,此咒轮还是一样可以佩戴解脱的。

这样,让世间有正反两面的此咒轮流通,又可以让提出问题的深入弟子们因而了解密法的真髓所在,应该是可以的。

Disciple Mi En noticed that the mantra wheel we posted at our websites is mirror-image version of the mantra wheel with yellow background he found online. Hence, he asked if we need to convert it back to the original fashion.

Many years ago, I noticed by chance this same point.

When we asked Dharma friends to print this mantra wheel, we provided a metallic carved board. However, the printing company lacked the facility to use that board for printing copies. Then, they made a photocopy of the carved board and print from there. Since none involved in the printing processes knew Tibetan, the mirror-image result was not discovered. Actually, they should have print one copy from the board, and then make photocopy of that print, then no reversion would have occurred.

Even though I noticed this point a few years after the printing, I did not make changes. This is because, first of all, the reversion was not done intentionally. Furthermore, the transmission and effects of Tantric teachings are, indeed, rooted in the lineage as sustained by pure Bodhicitta, and not dependent on how external appearances are. Therefore, this mirror-image mantra wheel can grant the same protection through wearing it.

Thus, there will be two versions of the mantra wheel in circulation, and thereby offers opportunity for Tantric disciples who notice this point to realize the true essence of Tantric teachings. Hence, it should be fine to do so.
