神奇的度母唐卡 Tara Thangka in New York

日前法王和這次上課的學生一起吃飯,期間聽美國中心的貢嘎尼師講了一個很有趣的故事,跟大家分享。
During a dinner with HH Sakya Trizin and students attending his teachings this time, Ani Kunga at Sakya Tsechen Kungchab Ling, New York, shared this interesting story.

140411 Dinner_001(LR)01 這位是噶桑嘉岑堪布(Khenpo Kalsang Gyaltsen),美國中心是由他負責建立的。堪布過於辛勞,之前嚴重中風,腦部手術後,完全癱瘓不醒人事很久,卻在不吃藥的情況下,現在已經恢復到除了因負責語言能力的腦部區域受損不能說話,腳比較沒有力氣,行走時需要人攙扶以外,頭腦竟然非常清楚,主事弟子還是不時請示他做各個大小決定。

看見他站都不是站的很穩,卻還是很堅持地起身跟法王恭敬合十聞訊,每次都覺得很感動。

This is Venerable Khenpo Kalsang Gyaltsen who has been working tirelessly in building this center. Heard that he went through a severe stroke, but has miraculously recovered wonderfully without taking any medication, just one surgery. Though I don’t really know him, you can certainly feel his devotion radiating brightly whenever H.H. walks past him.

Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche and Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche were also there.

這位是講故事的貢嘎尼師。事情是發生在幾年前建廟時,有一次法王子大寶金剛仁波切應邀前來傳法。期間適逢大女兒傑尊瑪的(一歲?)生日,於是大家一起慶祝了一番,並在大殿裡點了一萬隻蠟燭做供養。
So Ani said a few years ago, while Dungse Ratna Vajra Rinpoche came to Walden to give teachings, one day happened to be his daughter Jetsunma’s birthday. So the whole gathering celebrated together and lighted 10,000 candle in the shrine room as offering.

誰知夜晚沒人在大殿裡負責看著蠟燭,有些蠟燭到最後就燒了起來,恰巧是在一幅度母唐卡下面的左半部。唐卡那兩條長長的飄帶是最容易燒起來的,萬一燒了起來,就會延燒釀成大火。
At night, there was nobody in the shrine room and apparently some candles below a Tara thangka started to burn, right at where the bottom part of the left dangling ribbon was. And these ribbons are very inflammable. (The thangka mentioned is the right one in the photo below.)

140413 Teaching_002(右邊那幅就是那幅21度母唐卡)他們第二天進大殿時,只見度母唐卡下面左半邊的墻壁已被燒得黑黑的,而那個極可能會燒起來的飄帶神奇地被拉到上面大樑上,於是沒有被火燒到,也幸而沒釀成大火。

And what they saw the next morning when entering the hall was that, the left half of the wall below the thangka was all black due to the flames while the ribbon which was highly likely to catch fire was high up over the beam where the thangka was hanged.

廟裡問了一圈,卻沒人有去做這個難度很高的護廟善舉。那個屋頂有5-6米高吧,飄帶輕飄飄的,他們試著把右邊那條拋上去,發現完全沒有辦法拋上去。

140411 Dinner_055(LR)01而且,後來他們發現那根飄帶不只是掛在上面樑上,還被好好地打了一個結!

真的只能說是法王加持,度母顯靈了!

So they asked around to see who did that virtuous deed to prevent a potential fire. Nobody did.

140411 Dinner_046(LR)01-2Actually the beam is so high, at least 5 meters from the ground. Though they tried, can only conclude that no one can simply throw the light weight ribbon over the beam like that.

And when they took a closer look, the whole thing became even more intriguing, as the ribbon was not simply being hanged over the other side of the beam, but “someone" made a proper knot of the ribbon!

There is really no explanation of the whole thing. We can only say, thanks to the blessings of HH and inconceivable manifestation of Green Tara, the shrine was kept intact.

再來瞻仰一次這幅度母唐卡的近照。願聖度母平息火、水災等一切災害,護佑一切眾生,特別是佛法修行者。
May Arya Tara pacify all disasters such as fire and water, alleviate all beings from suffering and grant favorable conditions for practitioners until enlightenment is attained. 140413 Teaching_003(LR)
