文/蓮生活佛  盧勝彥
◎燃佛心燈

手印是手所結成的印契,手印象徵著心佛與一切眾生的體性平等,毫無差別。
密教所傳授的祕密印契,是有其祕奧之義,十個手指,就是十法界,又象徵地、水、火、風、空。
又有一說:
大拇指——法界體性智。
食 指——大圓鏡智。
中 指——平等性智。
無名指——妙觀察智。
小 指——成所作智。
右手結印是「福」,左手結印是「智」等等。
我最初結手印,是虛空中的靈師三山九侯先生所傳授,也就是我靜坐,雙手合掌,漸漸的手自動彎曲伸直旋轉,各式手印一一比劃而出。
所以《真佛宗》的手印,很多是虛空中所傳授的手印,真實不虛,我(蓮生活佛盧勝彥)絕不妄語,我的手印的確是虛空中直接傳授的。我學手印,真的是靈妙不可思議,手印變化莫測,無拘無礙,神奇異常。
當初,三山九侯先生告訴我:「手印通心也,也即是身如其意也,身心合一,變化無窮。」
手印能通心,一切就了無障礙了。
當我又學會了「心中心印」時,一剎那明白,原來手印一結,再觸,就直接觸動了本尊的心,此時行者的心與本尊的心,原是相通的。
我如此說,手結印契,金剛莊嚴,無量百千萬光,一一普照。


Mudra as transmitted from Space

Written by Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu
Translated by Cheng Yew Chung edited by Victor Hazen

 A mudra is a seal formed with one’s fingers. It symbolizes the equanimity and non-difference that exist between the mind of a Buddha and the true nature of all sentient beings.
 The secret mudras that are being transmitted in Vajrayana Buddhism are embedded with hidden meanings. The ten fingers represent the ten Dharma realms, and they also symbolize the five elements of earth, water, fire, wind and space.
 Another interpretation suggests:
 The thumb -- the wisdom of ultimate reality.
 The index finger -- the great mirror-like wisdom.
 The middle finger -- the wisdom of equanimity.
 The ring finger -- the wisdom of discriminatory awareness.
 The little finger -- the all-accomplishing wisdom.
 The right hand’s formation of a mudra represents blessings, whereas the left hand’s formation of a mudra represents wisdom.
 When I first learned to form mudras, they were transmitted to me by my spiritual teacher, the Eminent Sanshan-Jiuhou, who resided in space. I was seated in meditation with my palms placed together. Gradually, my fingers began to bend, straighten and turn automatically, and in so doing, formed different kinds of mudras.
 Thus, the many mudras found in the True Buddha School were first transmitted from space. This is true. I, Living Buddha Lian-sheng, Sheng-yen Lu do not lie. My mudras were indeed transmitted directly to me from space. When I was studying these mudras, I found them amazing and incredible, as they could transform freely in many unexpected variations. It was simply magical and extraordinary.
 Back then, the Eminent Sanshan-Jiuhou told me, “A mudra connects the mind to the body. In this way, the body reflects the mind. As the body and mind become one, its transformations are endless.”
 When the mudra is connected with the heart, nothing shall stand in the way. When I later learned of the ‘heart of heart mudra’, I instantly realized that when I formed this mudra, and made contact, I would directly touch the heart of the principal deity. At this moment, the heart of the practitioner and the heart of the principal deity are interconnected.
 Let me say this. When your hands form the mudra, it creates a matrix of adamantine adornment that emits infinite streams of light, illuminating all of creation!
