噶瑪巴對拉薩大昭寺火災的訊息

噶瑪巴對拉薩大昭寺火災的訊息

親愛的法友,

大多數人在週末都應該看到拉薩大昭寺火災的消息和圖片。

雖然損害的程度尚未清楚,但對許多人來說,看到我們其中一座最神聖的寺廟發生火災,會引起不安的情緒,這是可以理解的。

我小時候在拉薩時,幾乎每天都會和家人一起去大昭寺,向佛像覺沃仁波切禮拜。跟許多人一樣,我經常在覺沃仁波切面前祈禱,並在那裡作供養。我記得我對覺沃仁波切有著深厚的信賴 – 我甚至偶爾坐在佛陀的膝上,感覺非常安全和舒適。

對所有藏傳佛教徒來說,大昭寺是一個特別和精神之地。同時,它是我們最神聖的地方之一,也是西藏社區的重要聚會場地。

我祈願這場火災沒有造成任何長遠的損害,並且感到安慰沒有傷亡的報告。

同時,很重要的是我們應該緊記,我們不是被我們的寺廟、頭銜或人們對我們的看法或言論來作定義。作為佛教徒,我們需要勇於理解和接受,像真實的、堅固的或恆久的家,這樣的事物是不存在的 ,因此沒有什麼需要執著。從究竟上來說,真正重要的是我們能利用智慧與慈悲這種固有價值 ,我們的內在財富來利益所有有情。

因此,不應該讓情緒紛擾我們的思想。相反,不管我們是誰,也不管我們在哪裡,讓我們保持冷靜,並開發我們慈悲與智慧的寶庫。

泰耶多傑

##Karmapa’s message regarding the Jokhang Monastery fire:

Dear dharma friends

Many of you will have seen the news and images of the fire at Jokhang Monastery in Lhasa over the weekend.

While the extent of the damage is unclear, it is understandable that for many people, seeing one of our most sacred monasteries alight may give rise to disturbing emotions.

When I was in Lhasa as a young boy, I used to visit the Jokhang with my family almost every day, to pay respects to the Jowo Rinpoche – the statue of the Buddha. Like so many others, I would regularly pray in front of the Jowo and make offerings there. I remember feeling such a deep sense of trust in the Jowo – I even occasionally sat on the Buddha’s lap, feeling very safe and comfortable.

The Jokhang is a special and spiritual place for all Tibetan Buddhists. As well as one of our most sacred sites, it is also an important meeting place for the Tibetan community.

I pray that the fire has not caused any lasting damage, and feel comforted that no casualties have been reported.

At the same time, it is also important for us to remember that we are not defined by our temples, our titles, or what people think or say about us. As Buddhists, we need the courage to understand and accept that there is no such thing as a real, solid or permanent home – and therefore nothing to be attached to. In absolute terms, what really matters is that we use our innate values of wisdom and compassion, our Inner Wealth, to benefit all living beings.

Therefore, we should not let our minds be disturbed by emotion. Instead, let us keep our minds calm, and tap into the pool of compassion and wisdom that lies within all of us, no matter who or where we are.

第十七世大寶法王嘉華噶瑪巴泰耶多傑對菲律賓最近一場風暴的訊息

親愛的法友,

菲律賓南部的一場風暴已經造成200多人死亡和160人失踪。這是菲律賓最近的一場災難,菲律賓每年有20場颱風和熱帶風暴。

全國90%以上的人口是天主教徒,我們應該留意到,這場災難是在國家慶祝聖誕節前兩天發生。

我請所有我的學生為受這場風暴影響的所有人祈禱。

Dear dharma friends,

A storm in the southern Philippines has left more than 200 people dead and 160 people missing. This is the latest disaster to affect the Philippines, which experiences 20 typhoons and tropical storms every year.

More than 90% of the country’s population is Christian, and we should be mindful that this disaster comes just two days before the country was due to celebrate Christmas.

I ask all of my students to pray for all of those affected by the storm.

噶瑪巴對羅興亞危機的訊息

噶瑪巴發表關於羅興亞危機的訊息

9 October 2017

無論我們是不是著重靈性的人,不管我們是不是佛教徒 ,看到這些人類悲劇,這些人為的錯誤,都是可怕的。我們感到無能為力,但同時我們想要承擔責任、參與、幫助減輕苦難和解決問題。

然而,事情不是那麼簡單,因為承擔責任必然導致我們去尋找某種意義或理由,尋找誰錯誰對。我們永遠不會找到絕對的理由或解決辦法。我們可能會提出解釋、理由、過失 – 但這些都只是相對的觀點而已。

與其尋找一個意義或理由,最好是把我們的功德和祈禱獻給受苦的人。作為修行者,我們也可以訓練自己嘗試認知惡化的痛苦情緒,例如憤怒所造成的有害後果。

在生活中,遇到誤會和懷疑的感覺是正常的。當這些經歷出現時,我們不能試圖掩蓋或壓制它們 – 它們是不可被阻擋的。所以當它們出現時,我們應該讓它們生起,然後讓其自然消失。

我們越試圖壓抑情緒和延遲它的生起,情況會越糟糕 -情緒會愈益惡化。延遲情緒會導致真正的焦慮,結果可能是越來越嚴重的反芻思考,這樣就可能演變成為暴力。

在這種情況下,人們甚至會用宗教、哲學、科學甚至是種族來合理化對這些情緒上的行為。因此,我們必須找到勇氣讓我們的情緒自然而然地生起,就像風暴一樣它會自然的產生和自然的消失。一場風暴從來不帶有任何目的或意圖。
所以,當情緒出現時,我們絕對不要對它採取行動,否則,我們就會被暴風雨所困擾。相反,我們可以觀察它們,讓它們自然消失。這樣,我們將有助於防止更多的痛苦。

致上祈禱

Karmapa’s statement on the Rohingya crisis

9 October 2017

Whether we are spiritual people or not, whether we are Buddhists or not – it is terrible to witness these human tragedies, these human errors. We feel powerless, and at the same time we feel like we want to take responsibility, get involved, and help alleviate the suffering and solve the problems.

However, it is not as simple as that, because taking responsibility will inevitably lead us to search for some kind of meaning or justification, a search for who is at fault, who is in the right. We will never find an absolute justification or solution. We might come up with explanations, justifications, faults – but they will all be relative perspectives.

Rather than search for a meaning or justification, it is better to dedicate our merits and prayers to those who suffer. As practitioners, we can also train ourselves to try and recognise the harmful consequences of festering afflictive emotions, such as anger.

In life, it is normal to experience misunderstandings and doubtful feelings. When those experiences arise, we must not try to cover them up or suppress them – they are unstoppable. And so when they arise, we should let them rise on their own, and then let them fall on their own.

The more we try to resist emotions and postpone them from rising, the worse they get – they fester. It is this aspect of postponing emotions that causes real anxiety, and as a result one could ruminate more and more, and this then has the potential to transform into something violent.

In this situation people may even use the name of religion, philosophy, science or even race to justify acting on those emotions. Therefore, we must find the courage to let our emotions rise and fall naturally, just as a storm rises and sets on its own. For a storm never acts with an agenda or intention.

So, when emotions arise, we must never act upon them, for then we are caught in the storm. Instead, we can observe them, and let them settle on their own. In this way, we will help prevent any further suffering.

With prayers,

Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje

噶瑪巴對拉斯維加斯射殺事件的訊息

噶瑪巴對拉斯維加斯射殺事件的訊息

親愛的法友,

我感到非常悲傷當得悉拉斯維加斯的大規模射殺事件,導致至少59人失去生命,超過500人受傷。

昨天是聯合國國際非暴力日。面對這樣的暴力場面,要繼續走一條非暴力的道路,似乎是一個白費心力而徒勞的任務。

不過,我們要繼續這條路。追隨佛陀、甘地等實踐非暴力的偉大人物的腳步,無論處境有多困難,我們必須繼續堅持非暴力的柔和力量 。

我祈禱我們能找到勇氣運用慈悲與智慧來化解暴力。這樣,我們就能幫助減輕世界上的痛苦,幫助所有跟隨我們的人實現非暴力的道路。

請與我一起為受害者和所有受拉斯維加斯事件影響的人祈禱。

致上慈悲

#Karmapa’s message on the Las Vegas shooting:

Dear Dharma friends,

I was saddened to learn about the Las Vegas mass shooting, which has led to at least 59 people losing their lives, and more than 500 injured.

Yesterday was the United Nations International Day of Nonviolence. And, in the face of such violent scenes, it may seem like a futile or even failing task to continue to tread a nonviolent path.

Nevertheless, we continue on our path. Following the footsteps of Buddha, Gandhi and other great beings who have led the nonviolent way, we continue to believe in the gentle power of nonviolence – no matter how hard it may feel in times like this.

I pray that we can all find the courage to respond to violence with compassion, with wisdom, and with nonviolence. In this way, we will all be helping to reduce suffering in our world, and serve all those who follow us.

Please join me in praying for the victims and all those affected by the Las Vegas incident.

With compassion

噶瑪巴對聯合國國際和平日的訊息

September 21, 2017

噶瑪巴對聯合國國際和平日的訊息

親愛的法友,

只有當我們的思想是平靜的,我們才能為和平的繁榮創造其有利條件。

當我們花點時間觀察心識的時候,我們可以看到和平並不是一種「外在」且抽象的東西,而是「內在」,它是一種內在與此時此刻的東西。

和平就像慈悲和智慧,是我們與生俱來,是我們的內在財富。它不是給創造出來,而是給發現和孕育出來的。

在這個聯合國國際和平日,我們大家可以用一些時間思考心識的本質。這樣,將自然地在自己的心田,對本來俱有的和平種子給施肥,然後也同樣地會給予所有的有情眾生。

#Karmapa’s message on the UN International Day of Peace:

Dear dharma friends

Only when our mind is calm can we create the fertile conditions for peace to flourish.

And when we take some time to examine the mind, we can see that peace is not something abstract that is ‘out there,’ but it is ‘in here,’ in the here and now.

Peace is, like compassion and wisdom, part of our innate nature, our Inner Wealth. It is not to be created, but discovered and nurtured.

On this United Nations International Day of Peace, may we all take some time to reflect on the nature of our minds. By doing so, we will naturally fertilise the innate seed of peace, first in our hearts, and then for all sentient beings.

With prayers

噶瑪巴造訪古晉噶瑪噶舉佛法協會的訊息

親愛的法友,

我即將爲第三次造訪古晉噶瑪噶舉佛法協會而起程。在1999年底我第一次的海外弘法期間,是我第一次到古晉,其後再次在2006年年底到訪。
我分享這個消息,希望更多法友能夠和我一起參與2017之行。
古晉噶瑪噶舉佛法協會是我們歷史最悠久的中心之一,事實上於1980年我的前任,第十六世嘉華噶瑪巴讓炯日佩多傑到訪古晉時就種下了第一顆種子。不久,是我的已故老師夏瑪仁波切的造訪,這次的到訪最終造就第一個噶瑪噶舉中心於1984年在砂拉越正式註冊。
在過去的兩次到訪中,我認識了許多中心的成員,我感受到他們對佛法的真誠奉獻和信仰。我期待再次與所有這些舊法友會面,並與許多新朋友交流。
我特別高興的是,活動將包括第一次在古晉舉行的噶舉祈願法會。
噶舉祈願法會的主要精神是共同祈願。我們將念誦由偉大證悟者所編的各種祈願文,特別是普賢行願品祈願文。祈願是非常強大而有力的,因為它深植入我們的意識。雖然我們都希望並渴望許多事情,但是我們要在充分意識下去祈願並不常有。
事實上,我們大多數人並沒有真正意識到祈願的力量,或者如何有效地運用它。如果我們能夠正確運用這個工具,我們將能夠實現我們的日常需要和願望,為我們自己和所有其他眾生的和平和擁有良好條件做出貢獻。不僅如此,祈願最終將有助於我們更了解自己的本性,並認識到我們善良和仁愛的本質。我真的很高興我們能夠共同參與這個美好的修持,許多學生能夠參與這累積資糧的機會是我的希望和願望。

Dear dharma friends,

Soon I will be departing for my third visit to the Kuching Karma Kagyu Dharma Society. I went there for the first time in late 1999, during my first tour abroad, and then once again in late 2006.
I share this message in the hope that many dharma friends will be able to join me for my 2017 visit.
Kuching Karma Kagyu Dharma Society is one of our oldest centres – in fact, the first seed for it was planted by none other than my predecessor, Ranjung Rigpey Dorje, His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, when he visited Kuching in 1980. Soon to follow was a visit by my late teacher, His Holiness Shamar Rinpoche. This eventually led to the official registration of the first Karma Kagyu centre in Sarawak in 1984.
I have known many of the members of the centre for many, many years, and during my past two visits, I have felt inspired by their genuine devotion and faith in the Buddha dharma. I look forward to meeting all of these old dharma friends again, as well as connecting with many new ones.
I am particularly pleased that the programme will include the first Kagyu Monlam ever to be held in Kuching.
The practice of the Kagyu Monlam focuses on making aspirations together. We will recite various aspiration prayers composed by great realised beings, with a particular emphasis on Samantabhadra’s King of Aspiration Prayers. Aspirations are very powerful, because they go to the depths of our consciousness. Though we all wish and aspire for many things, it is not common for us to do so with full awareness.
In fact, most of us are not really aware of the power of aspirations, or how to utilise them effectively. If we are able to utilise this tool properly, we will be able to accomplish our daily needs and wishes, and contribute to peace and good conditions for ourselves and all other beings. More than that, aspirations will eventually help us to understand our own nature better, and to recognise our kind and loving nature. I am truly glad that we will be able to engage in this wonderful practice together, and it is my hope and wish that many students will make use of this opportunity by joining in these accumulations.
