A Torch Lighting the Way to Freedom · Dudjom Rinpoche

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐌𝐚𝐡𝐚𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐝𝐡𝐚 𝐕𝐢𝐫𝐮𝐩𝐚

𝐕𝐢𝐫𝐮𝐩𝐚 was born a crown prince, the son of King Suvarnacakra (gser-gyi ‘khor-lo) of the city of Vesasa in eastern India. The court astrologers predicted at his birth that he would develop tremendous spiritual powers and would illuminate the teachings. He was given the name Rupyacakra (dngul-gyi ‘khor-lo).

不論此生或來生,壹切的幸福和利益都來自佛陀的教導。正如我昨晚所說,在壹生之中,我們需要很多的東西,諸如食物和房子等等,但在我們壹生中最有意義的事 情,莫過于了解壹切現象的真正意義及它們的實相。在佛陀的衆多教導中,萬事萬物都帶著無常的特質,這是壹個重要的課題,尤其是我們的生命,當中往往發生著 不同的事情或障礙,這些都能縮短我們的壽命。

四派如壹無二 · 薩迦法王達欽仁波切

問:甯瑪派中談大圓滿、噶舉派中談大手印,可否請仁波切談談薩迦派的道果?
