尼日寺的神奇彩虹和感人的老喇嘛 / Amazing rainbows and Old Lama at Niri Monastery

剛剛聽說尼日寺的老喇嘛圓寂了,很是感傷,不過也歡喜他的生死自在,因為最後一次見到他的那個時候,他就讓我想到貢嘎旺秋堪仁波切,有感覺到他要不久於人世了。希望大家能迴向給這位銀登炯列喇嘛,也祈願有人能為他立傳,相信他的故事必能啓發很多佛弟子。

尼日寺 / Niri Monastery

尼日寺位在新都橋和塔公之間,就是所謂的“攝影家的天堂”的木雅地方。

寺廟所在處有如藏地的江南,土地肥沃,藏民以畜牧為生,但也種了許多莊稼,甚至還有蘋果樹。

寺廟處在群山環繞的一片平原上,山谷中有一條河蜿蜒流過,環抱著寺廟和周圍的土地。

Niri Monastery is situated between Kangding and Tagong, at a valley surrounded by mountains like lotus petals with a river embracing the land. Compared to Tagong, the climate here is mild and the land is fertile. Yet there are only a few households in this beautiful place.

尼日寺的歷史悠久(參見:http://jtzl.org/profile-clsd.php?id=355),但是文革後僅存下遭毀壞的大殿和蓮師殿。

改革開放後,曾有人聚眾要將廟裡的土地收來挖金礦,但是守著寺廟的唯一一位老喇嘛拒絕了,還遭人打傷。

幸好村民都很支持老喇嘛,最後老喇嘛被賠了幾萬元人民幣,就全拿來修複大殿(有尖尖屋頂的那座殿)。

The old monastery was very much ruined after the cultural revolution with an ailing main hall and Padmasambhava shrine left.

For many years, only one old lama stayed here and guarded the monastery.

The neighboring areas were gradually taken by gold miners and they also sought for the monastery land for mining. Yet the old lama firmly declined and got beaten in the strife. Later on, he got some compensation for the injury and used all the money to renovate the main shrine hall (the 2-roofed building).

近幾年,老喇嘛鑒於自己年事已高,就請塔公的桑吉銀登仁波切接管尼日寺。

桑吉銀登仁波切從2009年開始重建蓮師殿的工作,僅僅不到一年的時間,蓮師殿就依傳統的木雅建築方式完成了大部分的外部建築(右邊平頂的建物)。

我們來是因為有上師説這片土地上若能建起一座佛塔,將有助這個世界的和平以及自然環境的安定,因此前來了解一下有什麼是我們能幫忙的。

The old lama is more than 80 years now and was quite worried about the future of the monastery. Therefore, he asked a rinpoche from the neighboring Tagong Monastery to take over Niri, to ensure the conservation of this place.

I visited the place because a friend was entrusted to help build a stupa here as it’s said that a stupa in this place would be very beneficial for peace and balance of the environment.

 

第一道神奇的彩虹 / The 1st amazing rainbow

到尼日寺時,正好接近中午。

喇嘛們在寺廟前的草原上搭起一座帳篷,接待我們喝茶、吃中飯。

是藍天飄著白雲的晴朗好天氣。

才剛坐進帳篷,就聽見仁波切的小姪子説彩虹出現了。

圓圓一圈的彩虹,環繞在太陽周圍!

It was about noon time when we arrived at Niri Monastery. A tent was prepared for us to have tea and lunch.

It was a sunny day with baby blue sky and puffy white clouds.

Right after we were all seated inside the tent, a boy noticed this amazing rainbow appearing, circulating the sun!

相機不好,沒能照出那虹彩斑斕的彩色景象。而且因為彩虹就在頭頂上,躺在草地上都還照不全,恨不得鑽到地底去照。

說真的,以前看到究給企千仁波切荼毗大典DVD裏的環日彩虹,還會心中存疑,想說是不是攝影機正對太陽時映出的光圈(沒辦法,要我相信沒有親眼見到的異常現象、神通等等的,就是有些困難)。現在,親眼所見,一群人一起見到,而且左照照、右照照,出來的都是同樣位置的一圈彩虹,也真是確信有這種神奇彩虹了。

聽說空行母為了我們這趟過來,有交代這一帶最大的一位山神照顧我們。聽這話時,心裡是問號多多。現在也只能想說,山神對我們很好,非常展現誠意地歡迎我們到這個地方。

Before seeing this, I had some doubts whether such shape of a rainbow really exits. Even though I saw it at Chogye Trichen Rinpoche’s cremation, but that was on DVD and there is always doubt like whether it is some sort of reflection caused by the camera lenses etc. But now, all the doubts were gone. There is indeed rainbow circulating the sun!

When my friend said that Dakini already asked the main mountain deity here to take care of us, I was really suspicious. First of all, the dakini wasn’t even in China with us. Secondly, I’ve been to all these mountains in Tibetan areas, yet never see a trace of any mountain deity. But now, somehow I wonder whether there is really such a mountain deity welcoming us with this special spectacle.

第二道神奇的彩虹 / The 2nd rainbow

第二天再回到尼日寺時,是下午了。天上烏雲密布。

先去見了老喇嘛。進去時,老喇嘛正在讀經書,八十歲老人家坐在床上,房間只有兩張雙人床大小,我們勉強擠在佛龕、邊桌外的剩餘空間裏。想到老人家的一生不知有多少時光耗在這裡,就覺得他真是挺不容易的。

就一個人哪!若非對三寶有堅定的信心和利益衆生的菩提心,如何能夠一個人守著一座寺廟無數年呢?一個人閉關修法、自求解脫容易,但是在動盪不安、障礙重重的年代能隻身持守利他之行,真不是凡人能做到的。

直到去年之前,老喇嘛都是一個人在廟裡。去年他的身體開始不好了,才有些村人過來照看他,幫他做飯。

老喇嘛給了我們一人一小袋他自己做的甘露丸。他就在我們面前,很認真地親手裝了一袋袋給我們,不像一般拿到的袋裏少少的甘露丸,他給我們各包了滿滿一小袋。

It was in the afternoon when we went back to Niri Monastery on the next day.

It was a cloudy day. Thick and dark clouds covered the whole sky.

We saw the old lama for the first time. He was very kind, living in a tiny humble room. Though over 80 years now, he didn’t require any help until last year when he was hit by some illness.

從老喇嘛的房間出來後,我們燒了一些香和咒輪供給當地的護法,祈求寺廟擴建和建立佛塔的順緣。

才燒沒多久,厚厚的雲層就開了一個洞,恰恰露出了耀眼的太陽。(我燒了一點後,就讓位置給仁波切和堪布們燒,一轉身就看到了太陽神奇冒出來的景象)

接著就下起了綿綿細細的小雨。映著明燦的陽光,感覺很幸福。

一會兒大家把咒輪都燒完後,只見一道彩虹出現,從燒東西的地方連到老喇嘛住的小屋。

Then we burned some incense and mantra cakras to the local protectors and deities to pray for the success of rebuilding the monastery and stupa construction – some masters indicated that building a stupa in this place is particularly beneficial for peace and the balance of the environment.

Right after we started burning the stuff, a hole emerged amongst the clouds and the sun shone beautifully right from that hole. Then it started drizzling. When we finished all the burning (just a matter of a few minutes), a rainbow appeared, connecting the fireplace and the residence of the old lama. The timing was really amazing!

我很是興奮地照了幾張相片,剛幫仁波切、堪布、大夥兒都照了一張後,彩虹就功成身退地淡逝了。

前後就那麽幾分鐘的時間。想來護法對於我們的供養頗為滿意。

 

老喇嘛説,他的心願已了 / Old lama’s wish fulfilled

最後一次見到老喇嘛,是在我們離開尼日寺的早晨。

新蓮師殿的蓮花生大士佛像運到了。仁波切把佛像包裝打開後,念誦了一些祈請文,然後請老喇嘛過來。

那天是2010年5月26日,是佛陀成道、涅槃日的前一天。

老喇嘛對著蓮師像坐了片刻,跟仁波切説,新殿的蓮師到了,他的心願已了,他覺得未來有希望了,還謝謝我們。(其實我們什麽都還沒做啊,應該是感謝長久以來護持尼日寺和仁波切的弟子信衆們)。

他坐在那兒時,雖然他跟仁波切說的話我一句話也聽不懂,淚水不知怎的就淌了出來,立馬發現悄悄拭淚的還不止我一個。想到他一人堅守這個地方這麽多年,終於守到有人能延續他的事業,讓此地的法脈續流不斷,利益當地有形無形的衆生,感動崇敬之心自然湧起。能目睹清淨修行者們的事業傳承和堅定淨信,本身就是莫大的加持。

The last time we saw the old lama was on the morning when we left Tagong.

Guru Rinpoche’s statue arrived from Chengdu, so we went to the monastery to see the statue.

老喇嘛跟仁波切在新大殿前面合影後,頭上蓋塊毛巾遮陽,在當地百姓的攙扶下,慢步走回自己的小屋。

聽說之後,老喇嘛就將自己的一切後事都交代好,所有的經書也一一交付給各人,然後在前天淩晨兩點(6月1日)圓寂了,恰恰是我們見他的一週後。

Old Lama came to see the statue. He sat in front of the statue for a while and said something to Sangye Yingden Rinpoche.

We couldn’t understand a word, but quite a few of us shed tears somehow. Later on, Rinpoche told us that Old Lama said he was really happy to see the Padmasambhava statue, that he felt his wish fulfilled and that he felt the future of the monastery would be taken care of.

After we left, it’s said that Old Lama made instructions and arrangement of everything that needs to be done after he passes away, including giving away each of his religious texts.

Then two days ago, he passed away. Exactly 7 days after we bid farewell to him.

    真的很殊勝!同時也是修學佛法弟子很好的榜樣。上次在Zhong, Mustang 祿頂堪仁波切也曾跟我提到在Zhong Gonpa有位老喇嘛辛苦照料寺廟及一些年幼的沙彌多年,仁波切說那位Zhong的老喇嘛是一位很好的修行者及一位真正的出家人。謝謝分享!
