文/蓮生活佛  盧勝彥

有人問師尊:「知未來事否?」
我答:「知也。」
「如果知道有災難,可否逃得脫?」
我答:「盡力去解脫,但,脫得脫不得,命也。」
「預知未來事,在密教可有方法?」
我回答:「甚多!」
我教大家,取一明鏡懸掛於壇城之中,清淨過火。行者買來香花,先唸誦『本尊咒』加持香花百○八遍,然後取香花,又誦一遍咒,將花拋向鏡面,如此二十一遍、四十九遍。行者正坐,注視鏡面,鏡子裡有文字出現,告訴你想知道的未來之事。
同樣的道理,取清淨之碗,裝清淨之水,先唸真言百○八遍,加持香花。再唸一遍真言,取一花瓣拋向碗中水,二十一遍、四十九遍,注視碗中水,會浮現文字,告訴你想知道的未來之事。
同樣的道理,取純淨的水晶球,過火置於壇城,行者唸密咒百○八遍,加持香花。再唸一遍咒,取一花瓣擲向水晶球,二十一遍、四十九遍,注視水晶球,會浮現文字或景相,告訴你想知道的未來之事。
然而,我則不必如此,我在上床時,向本尊祈禱,臨睡時眼睛一閉,眼前現白色光點,後來就成一螢光面,未來之事全部出現螢光幕上,如同看電影一般。
但是,我現在如此認為,「知未來事」實無意義,倒不如什麼事都不知道,因為先知先驚怕也!
認真修密法,心無憂惱,一切隨緣去,了生脫死為要!


The Art of Knowing the Future

Written by Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu

 Someone asked me, “Can you read the future?”
 I replied, “Sure.”
 “If you know a disaster awaits you, can you avert it?”
 I replied, “You can do your best to avert it, but your chances of success still hinge on your destiny.”
 “Are there methods in the teachings of Vajrayana where we can read the future?”
 I replied, “There are many ways!”
 I shall share one practice with you. Take a mirror; purify it over fire before hanging it in your mandala shrine. Then obtain some fragrant flowers and recite your personal deity mantra 108 times to bless and empower the flowers. Then take each flower and again recite the deity mantra once and cast the flower towards the mirror. Do this 21 or 49 times. Sit up straight and look into the mirror. The mirror shall reveal writings to inform you about your future.
 Based on the above principle, you may choose a clean bowl instead of a mirror. Fill the bowl with clean water. First recite the deity mantra 108 times to bless and empower the flowers, then with each additional recitation of mantra, take a flower petal and cast it into the bowl of water. Repeat this 21 or 49 times. Look into the bowl of water and pay attention to the writings that appear. You will be told what you wish to know about your future.
 Acting on the same principle, you can choose a pure crystal ball and purify it over the fire at the mandala shrine. The practitioner should recite the deity mantra 108 times to bless and empower the flowers. Then, with each additional recitation of the mantra, take a petal and cast it at the crystal ball. Do this 21 times or 49 times. Look into the crystal ball and it shall reveal words or images which will tell you what you wish to know about your future.
 However, I do not need to resort to these practices. When I go to bed, I just pray to my personal deity. Once I shut my eyes, a white spot shall appear, eventually forming a white inner screen. Events in the future will be projected onto this inner screen like a movie for my review.
 Today I see no meaning in knowing the future. It is better not to know anything, for any foreknowledge of things brings early fear.
 Do cultivate the Vajrayana practice truthfully, and rise above all afflictions. Go with the flow and know that self-liberation from life and death must always come first!
