放光召請

文/蓮生佛  盧勝彥
有人問我:「密教召請諸尊,如何召請?」
我回答:「手結召請印,誦召請咒。行者應先緣念,諸佛菩薩,一切三寶,遍滿虛空,無所不在。而且十方諸佛,諸大菩薩,金身巍巍,坐寶蓮台,周匝圍繞,重重無盡,大放光明。」
「召請有祕密口訣嗎?」
我回答:
「有。」
例如我想召請我的本尊阿彌陀佛,其祕密口訣就是「放光召請」,觀想自己心際的心月輪,中間有阿彌陀佛的種子字「咄唎」,放紅光三度,紅光從中脈衝頂竅,入於虛空。此時阿彌陀佛自然隨著行者的召請光明而下降。
另有一祕密口訣是,行者舉「金剛勾」召請,觀想金剛勾的勾,勾住佛菩薩的雲,如此佛菩薩必然應請而來。
還有:
觀想蓮華座去迎請。
觀想佛菩薩衣袂震動而來。
觀想佛菩薩舉足。
觀想佛菩薩飾物環扣叮噹而響。
大致上來說,密教召請諸尊,以「放光召請」為最重要,這三度光明,全仗「運心而作」也就是自心放大光明,只要自心放大光明,無量佛菩薩,咸放光明,來照我身。
放光的意義甚廣大,有攝召義,有皈命義,有驚覺義,有供養義,有功德義,更有一切法無量義。在密教裏,是無量光義啊!
運心「放光召請」,佛菩薩諸尊一定降臨!


Light Emission Invocation

Somebody once asked me: “How does one invoke all the buddhas and deities in the Tantric teachings?”
I replied, “We must form the Invocation Mudra and chant the Invocation Mantra. First, the practitioner should hold the thought that all buddhas and bodhisattvas, the Three Jewels, are filling the space with their omnipresence. The assembly of buddhas and mahabodhisattvas of the ten directions, seen with their majestic golden bodies, are seated on lotus thrones, encircling the field in endless multiple rows and radiating lights of great luminescence.”
“Are there any secret keys in the invocation?”
“Yes,” I answered. “For example, the secret key for invoking my principal deity, Amitabha, is called the ‘Light Emission Invocation.’Visualize Amitabha’s seed syllable HRIH seated within the moon disc at your heart chakra, radiating three beams of red light which travel upwards through the central channel, projecting through the crown chakra into space. At once, Amitabha shall respond naturally with the light of invocation and descend.
Another secret key lies in the use of the Vajra Hook Mudra for invocation. The practitioner visualizes the hook attaching itself to the cloud that the respective buddha or bodhisattva rides upon, and the buddha or bodhisattva shall definitely descend.
Other approaches of invocation include:
Visualizing a lotus throne ascending to welcome and receive the respective buddha and bodhisattva.
Visualizing the respective buddha’s or bodhisattva’s sleeve fluttering as he or she approaches.
Visualizing the respective buddha or bodhisattva raising his or her foot.
Visualizing the jewels and adornments worn by the respective buddha or bodhisattva tinkling as he or she moves.
In general, the most important of all invocation practices in Tantric Buddhism is the ‘Light Emission Invocation.’ The emission of the three lights relies completely on the working of the heart. This means that your heart is radiating light of great luminescence. As long as your heart emits light of great brilliance, countless buddhas and bodhisattvas shall all radiate lights upon you.
The emission of light itself carries vast significance, which includes the significance of magnetism, the significance of seeking refuge, the significance of alertness, the significance of making offerings, the significance of merits, and the significance of infinite Dharma. In Tantric Buddhism, it carries the significance of infinite light!
Should you exercise your heart and radiate light to invoke the buddhas and bodhisattvas, they shall definitely descend.
