南吐司 – 财宝天王

财宝天王乃四大天王之一,为帝释天之外臣。以能护持世间故又称“护世者”,梵名“毗沙门天”。藏名“南吐司”译为“多闻”- 表其福德之名,闻於四方居须弥山北,率夜叉诸部

世尊释迦牟尼佛示现涅槃时付嘱四大天王,在未来世邪见王毁灭佛法时,必须护持佛法。当时财宝天王顶礼佛前应允率领一切眷属来保护佛弟子,裨使正法,久住世间,并给予众生财富资糧,助其成就世间法。

“南吐司”其外相虽显财宝天王之貌,但实质上乃五方佛之南方宝生佛所化现。周边围绕八路财神为部属,协助财宝天王救度众生,以满众生之愿。

本尊“南吐司”经多位上师在法会中加持。此次法会卓登上师也特别加持唸诵。希望佛友们能祈请“南吐司”本尊作为供养。每尊新币$100元。全数供养金将捐助秋嘉仁波切在西藏建设闭关中心之费用。

Namtose (Vaishravana)

Vaishravana is one of the Four Heavenly Kings, and the subject of Lord Indra. In Tibetian, Vaishravana is known as Namtose (“Multi-Hearing”) – symbolizing manifestation of immense merits, governing the Yakshas and residing in the northern direction of Sumeru. Vaishravana, Bishamonten in Sanskrit, is also known as the “Worldly Protector “.

When the Lord Buddha was nearing Nirvana, He instructed the Four Heavenly Kings to protect the precious Dharma at the times of Dharma degradation by the Defiled One.  Vaishravana led his retinue in offering their prayers to the Lord Buddha and vowed to protect all Dharma disciples; committed to Dharma flourishment and conferring wealth merits to support sentient beings in Dharma practices.

Namtose, in the form as Vaishravana Heavenly King, is a dharmapāla manifestation of the Ratnasambhava, one of Five Directional Buddhas.  Namtose is circumvented by wealth deities of the eight directions, supporting the liberation of sentient beings through wish fulfillments.

The statues of Yidam Namtose have been blessed by many great masters in Pujas, including prayers by the Togden during Chang Chud 2015.  The Yidam Namtose statues are available for offering at S$100/- each. All proceeds will be donated to fund H.E Choegyal Rinpoche’s retreat centre project in Tibet.  We look forward to all Dharma Brothers’ support in the offering of the Yidam Namtose statues.

Chang Chud 2015 冥阳两利 三十五佛除障大法会

Notice: Dharma Promulgation by Todgen Yogi

H.E Drugu Choegyal Rinpoche will not be presiding over the Chang Chud 2015. H.E Choegyal Rinpoche has to attend to monastic matters in lieu of H.E 8th Kyabje Dorzong Rinpoche’s medical condition. Hence, H.E Choegyal Rinpoche sought the special permission of Tashi Jong Abbot for Togden Thutop Nyima Yogi to preside over Chang Chud 2015 in Singapore.

Togden Thutop Nyima is a yogi who took the complete Bhikshu-vows. The Tibetan term “Togden” means one who realizes the nature of their own mind and accomplished the tantric practices. Although they are fully ordained Bhikshu, the Togdens display the matted hair and white robes of the Milarepa traditions.  Togdens would only don the white yogi robe after 12 years strict retreats on the profound tantric teachings and meditations (such as the Six Yogas of Naropa and Mahamudra meditation etc), and be endorsed by lineage masters.

Togden Thutop Nyima, now in his 50s, holds the Drukpa Kagyud lineage’s tantric essences.  Togden spent his youth in strict retreats at the Khampagar Monastery of Tashi Jong.  Togden led a life of celibacy and simplicity, befitting that of an accomplished Buddhist master.

Although Togden spent most of his life in retreats, he recently accepted occasional requests to lead the lamas in major Pujas and recitations.  The Chang Chud 2015 participants are blessed with the auspicious merits to witness Togden Thutop Nyima presiding the Chang Chud Pujas, and to receive Togden’s blessing. May all Dharma Brothers cherish this rare Dharma opportunity in gracing the Dharma event.

通告:卓登瑜伽士弘法缘起

此次三十五佛法会主持秋嘉仁波切基于高僧杜松仁波切病况而须留印主持寺院事宜,不能亲临来新。由于事态遽然骤发以及法会早在数月前就已筹办就绪,秋嘉仁波切特此恳请禅觉丛主持允准 卓登敦督尼玛瑜伽士前来主持新加坡法会。

卓登敦督尼玛是位具足比丘戒的梵行瑜伽士。藏文”卓登”译意为修行者已了悟自心本性,成就修持密法的根器。卓登身著白衣蓄发留鬚,修行一直以来都依止密勒日巴祖师的传承。有关白衣瑜伽装,并非普通参与闭关者可以随意穿著。而是至少经过12年的长期不间断的闭关,接受完整深奥的密续教导和实修(诸如那若六法及大手印等等)。此外还须要得到传承上师的认可。

现年约50岁的卓登敦督尼玛持有竹巴噶举传承主要密法精要,年轻时就已经在康巴噶闭关中心接受竹巴噶举传承的密续修持。卓登一生过着简朴的闭关生活,是位具德成就的上师。

卓登虽然长期在闭关中心精进修行,近年来也应寺院的祈请出关领导喇嘛修持大法会仪轨和唸诵。此次三十五佛法会佛弟子具足殊胜的福德因缘能见到卓登敦督尼玛瑜伽士而且接受他的唸诵和加持,希望大家能珍惜这毕生难得一见的法缘。
