第八屆香港噶舉祈願法會

日期:二零一二年十月五日至七日

地點:香港尖沙咀街坊福利會會堂

在佛陀和岡倉傳承的加持下,第八屆香港噶舉祈願法會順利地於二零一二年十月五日至七日連續三天圓滿舉行。我們很榮幸邀請到尊貴的卓智吉仲仁波切主持本屆的香港噶舉祈願法會,而蘇曼寺騰求仁波切和貢嘎寺蘇南仁波切也出席參與該法會。

為了追隨大寶法王於環境保護意識的步伐,因此本屆香港噶舉祈願法會增加了環境保護的主題─「環愛世界‧保護眾生」,希望能喚起參與者對環境保護議題的關注。為了響應此主題,法會裡設有環保藝術攤位,其中由義工們製作了一棵由回收塑膠水瓶組成的菩提樹,並展示了法王「擴育」(一關注環境保護的網站)的短片。法友們在菩提樹葉上寫上個人的願望並把它們掛在菩提樹上。這些祈願菩提葉將會送至今年十二月在菩提迦耶舉行的噶舉大祈願法會中由大寶法王加持後放置於菩提樹下,我們祈求所有願望都能迅速得到實現。我們也開辦環保植樹計劃,亦收到法友們的慷慨捐助。明年三月將會於青海大蘇曼寺種植樹木。「千盞手製蓮花明燈」也是本次法會特別的活動之一,熱心的義工們在短短三個星期時間中以手工製作了一千盞蓮花燈。此活動的構思理念是以蓮花燈取代傳統的酥油燈或蠟燭,藉以減少燃點酥油燈而產生的垃圾,而這些蓮花燈亦可以當作紀念品擺置一段較長的時間。

今年的香港噶舉祈願法會有三位仁波切,三位堪布、一百二十位喇嘛,以及漢傳比丘、比丘尼出席參加。同時超過一百位熱心且勤奮的義工們護持協助法會的進行。在法會的第三天有超過八百位的法友出席參與。

二零一二年十月五日 – 法會的第一天

法會的第一天,列隊儀式於早上九時開始,行列中先是旗幡勝幢、散花天女、再由仁波切們迎請尊貴第十七世嘉華噶瑪巴的法照進場,接著是僧眾抬大藏經進場。法會由念誦布薩律儀開始,接著是祈願儀軌二十支,普賢行願品及其他祈願儀軌。尊貴的吉仲仁波切連續兩個晚上給予「普賢行願品」的開示。第一天的法會以念誦迴向文完結。

二零一二年十月六日 – 法會的第二天

第二天,法會於九時開始,參與者領受布薩律儀,念誦祈願儀軌及祈願儀軌二十支。

於法會舉行之前及法會舉行期間,主辦單位設立了往生超薦蓮位及消災延壽牌位。於下午四時,仁波切主持不動佛超薦儀式。不動佛超薦儀式是一個具廣大淨化業障力量的法門,能夠利益一切眾生,包括己往生者及在生者。功德迴向眾生脫離下三道及輪迴之苦。

晚上七時半,吉仲仁波切繼續給予「普賢行願品」的開示。第二天的法會以功德迴向世界和平及眾生離苦得樂結束。

二零一二年十月七日 –法會的第三天

早上九時以念誦布薩律儀及祈願儀軌為開始的環節。上師’供養儀軌於下午二時進行,供品經過加持後派發給現場的法友們。為了響應是次保護環境及減少製造廢物的主題,供品只有水果。每一個人都因著能得到一個新鮮又好看的水果而高興,同時亦欣賞「沒有塑膠包裝」的概念。會場信眾亦向在場的僧眾作供養。

下午四時,香港噶舉祈願法會舉行酬謝功德主的儀式。為表示對功德主們的感謝,仁波切給予他們持及致送珍貴的紀念品。噶舉祈願(國際)的執行長卓德喇嘛感謝諸位仁波切,僧眾、功德主、義工及參與者對此一年一度的盛事中的支持及參與。卓德喇嘛亦頒發紀念品予諸位仁波切,朵瑪製作師、維那師及戒律師。大會公佈第九屆香港噶舉祈願法會的協辦單位為波卡具大悲佛法中心,法會舉行日期為二零一三年九月二十日至二十二日。本年度香港噶舉祈願法會的協辦單位主持  卓達滇佩喇嘛也感謝所有參與者的支持,使這次法會圓滿成功。

在最後的一個環節裡,尊貴的吉仲仁波切給予不動佛灌頂,有超過八百人出席。灌頂完結後,薈供品隨即派發給現場的信眾。之後,點燈祈願法會開始。義工們向仁波切及僧眾派發人手製作的蓮花燈。會堂的燈光被關掉,奇妙燦爛的一刻到來。當參與者開啟他們的蓮花燈時,整個會堂頓時充滿讚嘆的聲音。這是一個迷人的時刻,整個會堂猶如一個飄浮著亮光四射的蓮花燈的大海。這些蓮花燈是為了響應本年度的保護環境的主題而設的,藉以減少從傳統酥油燈或蠟燭而來的垃圾。同時,此燈可以被帶回家送給家人朋友擺放。每個人都在喜悅地唱誦著由阿底峽尊者作詞的藏文版及中文版點燈祈願文。每個人以最大的虔敬心,捧起蓮花燈,將一切所累積的功德迴向給佛法的興盛和世界和平。

出席是次八屆香港噶舉祈願法會的所有參與者都能感受到祥和喜悅的氣氛。

感謝

我們向尊貴第十七世噶瑪巴及所有傳承上師致以最深切的感激,感恩他們給予不可言盡的加持及慈悲的指導。我們深信勝的噶瑪巴從一開始就與我們同在,並一直的在幫助我們。

我們特別鳴謝尊貴的吉仲仁波,騰求仁波切和蘇南仁波切主持及參與本屆法會。感謝噶舉祈願(國際)的執行長卓德喇嘛給予我們關於法會的策劃和準備上的寶貴意見。我們亦感謝維那師,朵瑪製作師、翻譯師,以及所有幫忙本次香港噶舉祈願法會的喇嘛及僧眾。

我們亦感謝促成本次香港噶舉祈願法會圓滿成功的一切助緣及順緣。

法會的功德主們,我們要向你們說聲:“無限感激!”

最後要感激遠道而來的參與者及所有為圓滿本次法會盡心盡力的義工們。

我們需要互相幫忙和友愛才能彼此依存在這個世界上,讓我們一起將這個世界變成為一個更美好及快樂的安居地。

噶瑪巴千諾!

The Eighth Hong Kong Kagyu Monlam

Date:  Oct 5th -7th, 2012

Place:  TST Kaifong Welfare Association, Hong Kong

With the blessings of Buddha and Kamtsang lineage, the Eighth Hong Kong Kagyu Monlam was successfully held for 3 days from Oct 5th to 7th, 2012.  We had the honor of having His Eminence Je Dzhung Rinpoche leading the Hong Kong Monlam. Also, Thekchok Rinpoche and Sonam Rinpoche joined this year’s Hong Kong Monlam.

To follow His Holiness Karmapa’s footsteps on environmental protection and awareness, Hong Kong Monlam has added an environmental theme – “Love our World, Protect all Sentient Beings” and wishes to arouse the participants’ awareness on environmental issues.  In order to echo this new environmental theme, the event has opened an environment/art booth featuring a recycled plastic bottle Bodhi tree and His Holiness short video on Khoryug (a website on environmental awareness). Disciples wrote their wishes on paper Bodhi leaves and hung them onto the tree.  These paper leaves, which had already been blessed by His Holiness Karmapa, will be placed underneath the Bodhi tree in December’s Kagyu Monlam in Bodhigaya and we will pray that all these wishes will be fulfilled.  A tree planting program is initiated and a substantial amount of sponsorship had been received from generous disciples.  Trees will be planted in Zumang Monastery, Chinghai next March.  A “1000 hand-made lotus lamps” project was introduced.  Volunteers helped to hand make 1000 lamps and the lamps were completed in less than 3 weeks.   The whole idea is that the traditional butter lamps or candles are replaced with this lotus lamp.  Thus, garbage left from the butter lamps will be reduced. In addition, this lamp can be kept as a memorial item for a long time.

This year’s Hong Kong Monlam was attended by 3 rinpoches, 3 khenpos, 120 lamas and Mahayana monks and nuns. Over 100 dedicated and hard working volunteers joined to help out in the event.  Attendance reached more than 800 disciples on the 3rd day.

Oct 5, 2012 – The First Day

The procession began at 9 am on the first day, during which Sangha members carried a photo of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, followed by 8 flower offering ladies and the Kangyur and Alms procession.  The puja began with Sojong Vows (the eight precepts), followed by chanting of aspiration prayers.  The Twenty-Branch, The King of Aspirations and other prayers were chanted throughout the day. His Eminence Je Dzhung Rinpoche gave a teaching on King of Aspirations Prayers for two consecutive nights.  The Monlam’s first day closed with reciting dedication verses.

Oct 6th, 2012 – The Second Day
On the second day, Monlam began at 9 am and participants took Sojong vows and chanted aspiration prayer and twenty branch monlam prayers throughout the day.

Before and during the Monlam, the organizers collected donations to make prayers for the deceased and those living who are in great difficulty. At 4pm, Rinpoche led the Akshobhya Purification Ritual. The Akshobhya ritual is a very powerful purification practice that benefits all sentient beings, including those who have passed away as well as those still living. Merit was dedicated to freeing beings from sufferings in samsara and in the lower realms.

At 7:30pm, Je Dzhung Rinpoche continued to give teaching on Kings of Aspiration.  The second day was closed by dedicating the merits to world peace and harmony and all sentient beings.

Oct 7th, 2012 – The Third Day
The morning session began at 9 am with Sojong vows and aspiration prayers. At around 2pm, Guru Yoga feast offering was performed and Tsok offerings were blessed and distributed to participants.  Only fruit was used for Tsok offerings to echo the environmental awareness theme and garbage-reducing campaign.  Everyone was happy to receive a piece of beautiful fresh fruit and appreciated the “no plastic wrapping” concept.  Devotees and Sangha members also made offerings to the assembly during the three days.

At 4pm, Hong Kong Kagyu Monlam held an appreciation ceremony for this year’s sponsors.  As a token of appreciation and gratitude, the sponsors were blessed by Rinpoche and offered precious souvenirs.  The International Kagyu Monlam Executive, Lama Karma Chodark, made a speech of appreciation to  Rinpoches, sangha, sponsors, volunteers and all participants for their devotion and dedication to this annual event.  Souvenirs were given to Rinpoches, Torma masters, Chanting masters and discipline master respectively.  It was also announced that Bokar Mahakarunika Centre will be the co-organizer for the 9th Hong Kong Kagyu Monlam, which will be held on Sept 19th – 21st, 2013.  Lama Choedrak Tenpel, this year’s Hong Kong Kagyu Monlam co-organizer, also made a thank you speech to all participants for helping to make this Monlam a success.

During the last session, His Eminenece Je Dzhung Rinpoche bestowed Akshobhya Empowerment.   Over 800 disciples attended this session.  Tsok offering was given to each disciple after the empowerment was received.  Then Marme Monlam began.  Volunteers distributed hand-made lotus lamps to Rinpoches and sangha for the lamp offering at Marme Monlam.  Hall lights were off, and the beautiful and amazing moment came.  All participants then turned on the lotus lamps, and immediately the hall was filled with praising voices.  It was such a mesmerizing scene just like a sea of illuminated lotus flowing in the entire hall.  These lotus lamps were introduced to endorse this year’s environmental awareness theme – they are made to replace the traditional butter lamps or candles and to reduce the amount of garbage.  Also, those who purchased this lamp can bring it home for family or friends and keep it for a long while.   Everyone recited “The Lamp Prayer” composed by Atisha with bliss and joy. The Lamp Prayer was recited in Tibetan and Chinese sequentially. Holding the lamps with utmost sincerity, everyone dedicated the merit that have been accumulated and offered this towards the thriving of Buddha Dharma and World Peace.

The festival stimulated harmony and happiness in all those who attended the 8th Hong Kong Kagyu Monlam.

Appreciations

We would like to express our deepest appreciation to His Holiness the 17th Karmapa and all the lineage masters for their immeasurable blessing and kind guidance.  We earnestly believe that His Holiness helped us and that he was with us right from the beginning.

Special thanks go to His Eminence Je Dzhung Rinpoche, Thekchok Rinpoche and Sonam Rinpoche for leading and attending the ceremony. We would like to thank you Lama Chodrak, the executive officer of the International Kagyu Monlam Organization, who has given us valuable advice in planning and preparing this event. We would also like to thank the chanting masters, torma masters, translators, and all other Lamas and Sangha members who helped in this year’s Hong Kong Monlam.

We would like to express our genuine gratitude to all the wonderful connections and conditions that we’ve accomplished to make Hong Kong Kagyu Monlam a successful one.

To our great sponsors of this event, we would like to say a big “thank you” to you all.

Lastly, a big round of applause to the participants who came from afar and to all the volunteers for their dedicated efforts in making this event a success.

We need to help, love and depend on each other to live in this world and together we make this world a more wonderful and happy place to live in.

Karmapa Khyenno!
