Event description

Description

As was taught by the Gyalwang Karmapa previously, the purpose of the Buddha Akshobhya practice is to offer us a method which prevents our mind being overwhelmed by negative emotions, especially anger and hatred. The empowerment itself, the Karmapa explained, could be understood as making an auspicious connection with Akshobhya and permission to do the practice, or it could be taken as a blessing. “It is only the beginning,” he emphasized. “Now you have to do the practice.” The main point is for all of us to put effort into protecting our own mind streams from aggression and anger.

By receiving both the teaching and empowerment on Akshobhya we can develop a deeper connection to Buddha Akshobhya and accomplish the best result that can be attained from the practice. If we lack either the empowerment or the teaching, the benefit is limited for ourselves and others.

Please remember to buy tickets for both June 23 and June 24th. On June 23rd in the evening and Saturday June 24th in the morning the Gyalwang Karmapa will teach about the Akshobhya practice. On June 24th in the afternoon he will give the Akshobhya empowerment.

尊聖的嘉華噶瑪巴曾經開示,不動佛法門的修持能夠讓我們提防各種煩惱擾亂自心,尤其是瞋恨的情緒。「灌頂」如大寶法王噶瑪巴云,可以被理解為與不動佛結緣、得到修持此法門的殊勝應許,或者視為一種加持。法王強調:「這個步驟只是一個起端,再來就要實際去修持。」換句話說,想捍衛心續不被瞋恨染污,主要取決於我們自身的努力。

領受不動佛法門的修持指導與灌頂,能讓我們與其產生更大的共鳴,在修持此法門時得到最高的效益。反之,倘若我們缺乏指導或灌頂任何一者,所成就的自他利益就會大幅減退。

謹提醒您,欲參與不動佛全程活動,請各別購買23和24日的入場卷。週五,6月23日下午與週六,6月24日上午法王將授予修持指引、週六下午主法灌頂法會。
