To quote the Usnisa Vijaya Dharani Sutra, “… if someone hears this Dharani even for just a moment, he will not undergo karmic retribution from the evil karma and severe hindrances accumulated from millions of lifetimes, that would otherwise cause him to revolve in the cycles of birth and death – in all kinds of life forms in the evil paths – hell, hungry ghost, ferocious animals, crawling creatures and even ants and other life forms … he will be reborn in the Buddhalands, together with all the Buddhas, or in a distinguished, wealthy and reputable family.
The Usnisa Dharani also states, “… If one can chant this Dharani 21 times daily, he is worthy of accepting all the immense worldly offerings and will be reborn in the Land of Ultimate Bliss after his death. If one chants this Dharani constantly, he will attain a form of enlightenment and be able to lengthen his lifespan besides enjoying the most extraordinary bliss … ”
This is an extremely important spiritual prayer.
It can eliminate all evil karmic hindrances and eradicate the suffering of all evil paths. This prayer can also elevate the souls of ones ancestors out of debtors prisons and other hell-like conditions.
This prayer has the power to liberate parts of the soul trapped in the clutches of lower entities.
After hearing this prayer, it totally eliminates any possibility that the listeners soul may end up in a hell-like existence in the next life.
This prayer liberates all souls who hear it (animal or human), from of falling into the sea of birth and death; samsara.
The cycle of physical birth and death is ended by repeating this prayer.
Therefore, The Usnisa Vijaya Dharani is a powerful and wonderful medicine that can universally free sentient beings from the sufferings in the cycles of birth and death. This has fully demonstrated the great compassion of the Buddha to save the world. Memorizing this prayer permanently transforms and elevates the soul.
The Usnisa Vijaya Dharani is given with the aim that all sentient beings living in this troubled and tumultuous world would benefit from it. The Usnisa Dharani will help beings overcome their sufferings and obtain happiness, increase their prosperity and longevity, and help them achieve rebirth in a world of light populated by Immortal Enlightened Beings.
節錄自二零一二淨土大經科註 （第八十五集） 2012/12/24
by Tibetan Bodhisattva Gyalsé Tokmé Zangpo , 1245-1369
You see that all things are beyond coming and going,
Yet still you strive solely for the sake of living beings—
To you, my precious guru inseparable from Lord Avalokita,
I offer perpetual homage, respectfully, with body, speech and mind.
The perfect buddhas, who are the source of all benefit and joy,
Come into being through accomplishing the sacred Dharma.
And since this in turn depends on knowing how to practise,
I shall now describe the practices of all the buddhas’ heirs.
Here I have set down for those who wish to follow the bodhisattva path,
Thirty-seven practices to be adopted by all the buddhas’ heirs,
Based on what is taught in the sutras, tantras and treatises,
And following the instructions of the great masters of the past.
Since my intellect is only feeble and I have studied but a little,
This is not a composition likely to delight the connoisseurs,
Yet since I’ve relied upon the sutras and what the saints have taught
I feel these are indeed the genuine trainings of the buddhas’ heirs.
Still, the tremendous waves of activity of the bodhisattvas
Are difficult for simple-minded folk like me to comprehend,
And I must therefore beg the indulgence of all the perfect saints
For any contradictions, irrelevancies or other flaws this may contain.
Through whatever merit has here been gained, may all beings
Generate sublime bodhichitta, both relative and absolute,
And through this, come to equal Lord Avalokiteshvara,
Transcending the extremes of existence and quiescence.
This was composed in a cave near Ngulchu Rinchen by the monk Tokme, a teacher of scripture and reasoning, for his own and others’ benefit.
People like to use different terms to A) associate and B) disassociate with others and it applies even towards their meals.
Example A) :
“this is my best friend.” or “this is the love of my life”,
these are terms that we use to let others know the other party’s status with us. When he/she is our friend, there’s no need to classify them into different categories or “classes”. Friends are friends. But indirectly we are inputting this illusory thought into our own mind. We are only causing more pain and suffering onto ourselves. Just like when every friendship sours or relationship ends, we will be having all sorts of mixed feelings within again. Always contemplate on impermanence and the happiness/sorrow that you experience will be nothing more than a temporary fleeting emotion.
However, don’t misinterpret what i’m trying to say here, i’m not asking everyone to be zombie like without emotions. But it is to clarify that we don’t put specified terms or preference to people around us but to treat everyone with equanimity, altruism & love. But when in special cases, if the person is dragging you down in terms of well being or growth spiritually, it would be in one’s advantage to let go of hindrances. Wish them well and let it go. Move on.
Example B) :
People like to disassociate their meals they ordered from its source.
Simply because they want to feel less guilty in the process of consumption.
Examples: Pig (Pork) & Cow (Beef steak) , Baby Calf (Veal) , Goose / Duck Liver (Foie Gras) , Sturgeon Eggs (Caviar) etc
Save a life, opt for vegetarian meal options when dining.
