阿底峽尊者建的廟與龍樹菩薩取出的般若波羅蜜多經 Prajnaparamita Sutra retrived by Nagarjuna

周一是IBA每周放假的日子,今天有同學組織去加德滿都市中心Thamel區裏一座歷史悠久的廟宇。Monday is the weekly holiday for IBA students. Today one schoolmate organized a tour to a very old and holy temple in Thamel, i.e. downtown Kathmandu.
 
 
這座廟據信是阿底峽尊者前往西藏傳法前所建,他並在此居住了相當長的一段時間,當時是僧衆衆多的佛學院,現在只剩下讓人朝拜的廟堂。The temple is believed to be established by Atisha on his way to Tibet. At that time, it was a monastery with buddhism school.
 
 
廟裏特別殊勝的是一套據說是龍樹菩薩當年從龍宮取出的十萬頌《般若波羅蜜多經》。取出經書的鑰匙由四家人管理,要四家人一齊到場才能開啓,所以要禮拜此經得事先預約。共四大冊存放在四大銅匣內,內文是黑底厚紙上書金字,巴利文、梵文一起,看的出來很古老。保管鑰匙的人很熱情,故事講得天花亂墜,說經書卷首是由文殊菩薩手寫的……我姑且聽之,心裏不是很信,但是頂禮經書時卻感到很大的加持力。回來跟堪布說,堪布說,故事版本他聽到的就有三個,不過只要想到那經書是多少偉大上師、學者們讀過的,加持是必然的。What is also very precious with this temple is that it holds a set of Prajnaparamita Sutra belived to be THE set retrieved by Nagarjuna from the Naga’s realm. The precious text is guarded by 4 families and it’s only accessible with keys from all the 4 families’ presence at the same time, therefore, you need booking in advance. The sutra is of 4 volumes with gold letters written on very thick black papers in both Pali and Sanskrit languages. The guardian was passionate and told a lengthy amazing story including how Majushri wrote the 1st page with his thumb…it’s a bit hard to believe yet I did feel unexpected strong blessings from the text. I told Khenpo about the surprising feeling and he said of course, jut think of how many great masters had gone to read and pay homage to that scripture. Indeed.
 
南摩摩訶般若波羅密。Namo maha prajnaparamita.
 
中午在附近的以色列素食餐廳OR2K吃飯,薄荷檸檬水超讚! We had lunch at a nearby Israili vege restaurant OR2K. Their mint lemonade is superb!

明天堪千阿貝仁波切慈悲答應給我們講法,太期待了!Tomorrow Khenchen Appey Rinpoche will kindly bestow some teachings (out of request from some schoolmates who supplicated before I came!) . Am really looking forward to it!
