文/蓮生活佛  盧勝彥

有一回。
我和很多弟子爬山,其中有幾位是歐洲來的,他們是下午的班機,要飛回去。
有兩位弟子得知他們的本尊是「藥師琉璃光王佛」時,便當場跪下,獻上供養,要求我給他們本尊灌頂。
在當時,我只穿喇嘛裝,沒有淨瓶法器,沒有戴冠,沒有法座,當然更沒有壇城。
我想了一想,點點頭,我說:
「好,我給你們兩位本尊灌頂,你們兩位結藥師印,口誦藥師咒,觀想藥師如來住頂。」
我伸手摸弟子頭頂。
只一下子,便灌頂結束。
事後,我對弟子解釋:
密教灌頂,應該在壇城曼荼羅,因為壇中是聚集具足諸尊功德之故。金剛上師戴冠,上法座,以法相或淨瓶灌頂,一一表徵「本尊力」、「上師力」、「法界力」加持灌頂弟子,如此灌頂才是如法的灌頂。
在荒郊野外山林之中,原本是不可以,不如法的。上師沒有戴冠、沒上法座、沒有法器、沒壇城,均是不如法的。
但,我為何可以?
我說,我已相應五佛。一念之中,五佛已住頂化為寶冠,腳下踏的地即刻化為蓮花座,手就是法器。我眉心輪、喉輪、心輪、臍輪、密輪,住著「五佛五金剛」,我的身子,聖賢集會,萬德交歸,根本就是曼荼羅。
我今天,告訴真佛行者,修持「氣脈明點」,可以修出「身曼荼羅」。
一、 氣——一切成就的作用。
二、 脈——化為一切境界,佛國淨土。
三、 明點——佛。
四、 拙火——淨光。
如果能夠修證「氣脈明點」而達到轉化,才知道真如實相。真如無自性,隨變不守自性。染淨真妄交轍,事事無礙,重重無盡。
密教絕重儀軌,儀軌不周全,即是不如法!
但,唯有修證身「曼荼羅」者,才能超越!才能總持無量佛法,而無漏失!
誰能證明:「真如即我身。」
我答:
「氣脈明點法。」


The Body Mandala

 Once, I went mountain climbing with many of my disciples. Several of them had come from Europe, and their flight was scheduled for departure that very afternoon. When two of my disciples learned that their principal deity was the Medicine Buddha, they immediately knelt down on the spot, gave their offerings and requested the principal deity empowerment.
 At that time, I was dressed only in my lama outfit without the necessary pure vase, the Buddha crown and the Dharma throne.  Needless to say, there was no mandala available for this purpose. I thought about this and agreed to their request. I said, “All right. I’ll give both of you the principal deity empowerment. I want you to form the Medicine Buddha Mudra and recite the Medicine Buddha Mantra, and visualize the Medicine Buddha seated on top of your crown.”
 I extended my hand to touch their crowns, and gave them the empowerment. Then I explained to my disciples: All Tantric empowerments should ideally take place in the sanctuary of a mandala(shrine), because the mandala houses the combined merits of all Buddhas and deities. When the Vajra Master wears the Buddha crown, and ascends the Dharma throne, he gives the respective empowerment either with the image of the deity or the pure vase. This symbolizes an empowerment given to the disciple with the power of the principal deity, the power of the Guru, and the power of the Dharma realm. Only then can an empowerment be considered valid.
 Otherwise, it is not permissible and not in accordance with the law to offer the empowerment in the wild mountain areas. Without his Buddha crown, without the Dharma throne to which the Guru ascends, without ritual objects and the mandala, the entire empowerment is considered invalid.
 Yet I could give the empowerment. Why? I wish to say that I have already achieved spiritual union with the Five Buddhas. In an instant, the Five Buddhas resided on the top of my head and transformed themselves into a precious crown. The ground that I stood on was instantly transformed into the lotus throne. My hands were my ritual objects and, abiding within my five chakras, namely the brow chakra, throat chakra, heart chakra, navel chakra, and root chakra were the Five Buddhas Five Herukas.  Hence, you shall find the assembly of sages residing within my body, where a multitude of meritorious virtues converge. My body itself is the mandala.
 I wish to inform the True Buddha practitioner that by the cultivation of winds, channels and drops, one can develop the Body Mandala.
 Winds or Chi -- The mover of all accomplishments.
 Channels -- Transformed into every realm, and the Buddha Pure Land.
 Drops -- Buddhahood.
 Inner fire -- Clear light.
 If your cultivation and attainment in your practice of winds, channels and drops, reach a stage where a transformation occurs, you will recognize True Reality. True Reality is without individual nature, and adjusts to changes without holding to a fixed self-nature. Impurity and purity, truth and delusion intertwine with no hindrances in an infinite matrix of interaction.
 Vajrayana Buddhism places the utmost importance in the sadhana ritual. If the ritual is incomplete, then all is considered invalid!
 Yet, only by cultivating and attaining the Body Mandala can one rise above and beyond all things! Only then can one hold the key to infinite Buddhadharma without fail!
 Who can verify this statement: “The True Reality is that which I am.”
 My reply: “One who practices winds, channels and drops.”
