離開哦寺/ Leaving Manduwala

這幾天祿頂堪仁波切都忙著授戒。每天都有數十個小和尚過來領受沙彌戒或大一點的喇嘛來受比丘戒,從哦巴寺、薩迦中心…很多不同寺廟一批一批前來,也有尼師過來受沙彌尼戒,聽說是因為過去兩三年仁波切太忙,沒有時間授戒,所以才會積了這麽多求戒的人。

受戒後的小沙彌很高興,紛紛在哦寺照相留念。才旺喇嘛的櫻花樹繼續成為熱門照相景點,每天還都會有人問說印度怎麽能種出這麽漂亮的櫻花…(人生真是一場大幻相哪)。
Luding Khen Rinpoche has been busy for ordination of hundreds of monks these days. Everyday we would see tens of young monks from various insitutions e.g. Ngor Monastery, Sakya Center, waiting at the Ladrang to get their  sramana or bhikshu vows.

These novice monks love taking pictures under the cherry tree 🙂 Everyday there is still people asking how to grow a cherry tree in India…haha. The other two beautiful trees are at Sakya Dolma Phodrang; they reminds me of the trees in Sydney.

有一天去山下買東西,就在寺廟旁邊的路上等公車。印度的路很破,破到有個大洞,喇嘛們擔心人車不留意會掉進去,因此在兩旁堆了頗有禪意的石頭做警告標識。
This is where monks waiting for bus to go downtown. They piled up some rocks to mark a big hole in the road to prevent accidents. Very zen layout. 

後來我們沒有坐到公車,因為實在擠不上去,不過有攔到一台私家車帶我們下山,再換三輪車去德拉敦買東西。

離開哦寺的前一天下午,有隻猴子在我房間的窗檯上坐了好久。還好它是背對我的,所以我稍稍享受了有個眾生陪我一起坐坐的時光。要是它是一直面對著我、盯著我的話,我大概會有點害怕。

最後一天清晨有很多猴子在林間集體互相抓跳蚤,蠻和樂融融的。

The monkeys are such a daily scene now. I even had one sitting comfortably on my window for a very long time. It is actually pretty nice to have someone share the solitude quietly – sometimes they can be very loud, but this particular one was very gentle and friendly.

因為仁波切忙授戒要一直忙到去尼泊爾參加藍毗尼法會,所以決定在這段期間前往釋迦牟尼佛獲得證悟的地方——菩提迦耶朝聖。明天就要啓程,非常期待,所有去過菩提伽耶的人都說那是個非常特別的地方。

I am embarking on a trip to Bodhgaya, the place where Sakyamuni Buddha attained enlightenment 2500 ago. Really looking forward toward being in that place. Everyone who has been there unanimously said that Bodhgaya is such a special place that you can feel its unique quality vividly.
