文/蓮生活佛  盧勝彥

「漏」這個字,原來是煩惱的別名,有「漏泄」及「漏墮」的含義。每一個人,日夜煩惱不休,於是一些元氣,由六根漏泄流注而不止,這就變成「有漏皆墮」。墮是會墮落到三惡道中。
 據我所知,「漏」也有口漏、身漏、意漏。
口漏--妄語、兩舌、惡口、綺語。
身漏--殺、盜、淫、酒。
意漏--貪瞋癡。
我過去讀【瑤池金母解脫真經】,金母也說:「漏泄則死,人的精神從何處泄漏出去,便要從何處收回來。」可見有漏,即是有煩惱垢染的身體。
原來每一個人的身體,可以說都是「有漏體」,例如:
 女性漏經血。
男性漏精液。
在密教,女性漏的經血,我們稱為「紅菩提」。男性的精液,我們稱「明點」或「白菩提」。
密教修法之中,有「無漏法」,能夠使男行者永遠不漏精液,女行者永遠不漏經血。這個「無漏法」可以使密教行者修成無漏金剛體、金剛身、身體不壞。
我個人如此認知,「漏」也有無形、有形之分,無形的是貪、瞋、癡等等煩惱。有形的,是漏經血、漏精液均是。不管無形、有形,均影響到修行人。
 一個真正的行者,在無形方面,清心寡欲,斷盡一切的煩惱。在有形方面,修「無漏法」,完全使精血一點一滴也無漏失,這樣才是身心都得到解脫,這才是無所怖畏。
身心皆解脫,離一切的妄染,才稱為「無漏」。
 

 Leakage Spells a Fall 
 
Written by Lian-shen Linving Buddha Sheng-yen Lu

 The word Leakage is another term for afflictions, which carries the meaning of leakage or dissipation. When we are troubled and worried at all times, the primal chi or essence within us continuously leaks through the six sense organs, and this leakage develops into a condition known as  leakage spells a fall'. This  fall' implies falling into the three lower realms.
 To my knowledge, the areas of  leakage' include the leakage of speech, leakage of body, and leakage of mind.
 Leakage of speech - lying, slander, abusive speech and idle chatter. Leakage of body - killing, stealing, debauchery, alcohol
Leakage of mind - greed, anger, ignorance I read the Golden Mother of the Jade Pond on Liberation Sutra and the Golden Mother says,  Death comes with leakage, and it is through the same areas where the vital and spiritual energies of humans have dissipated that they have to be replenished.' This shows that leakage does refer to a body contaminated with afflictions.
 The human body is indeed a vessel of leakage. For example: a woman experiences leakage through menstruation, and a man through semen. In Vajrayana Buddhism, the discharge of menstrual fluid from the female is known as the red bodhicitta. The male's semen is called the drop or white bodhicitta.
 Among the cultivation practices of Vajrayana Buddhism is the non-leakage practice, which conditions the male practitioner to attain permanent non-leakage of semen, and the female practitioner to attain permanent non-leakage of menstrual fluid. Thus, the non-leakage practice helps the Tantric practitioner develop the non-leakage vajra body, which is indestructible.
 My view is that even leakage is categorized into invisible and visible. Invisible leakage is the afflictions of greed, anger and ignorance. Visible leakage is the discharge of menstrual fluid and semen. Whether the leakage is of the visible or invisible, it does affect the cultivator.
 A true practitioner shall maintain a desireless state, cutting all afflictions in the spiritual aspect of cultivation. And in the physical aspect of cultivation, he or she can cultivate the non-leakage practice and completely prevent the leakage of semen and menstrual blood. Only then can one achieve true liberation of body and mind, and achieve fearlessness.
 Only upon the liberation of body and mind, being free from all delusions and contamination, can it be called  non-leakage'.
