護持三鶴道場

親愛的發心大德們,

三鶴道場乃台灣大華嚴寺的北美分院,位於風景秀麗的美國密西根州雀兒喜市。在2012年底,由芝加哥、多倫多與安納堡三地的善眾共同發⼼買下。自成立以來,道場接待了來自世界各地的求法及參訪的學員。正是得力於十方眾生和志工們堅持不懈的護持,道場才得以不斷地更新和愈加完善。現在努力的目標是要建立三鶴道場為真心求道者精進修行的聖地,這也是為十方眾生培植善根、積累福報福田的沃土。

在未來的幾年裡,三鶴道場將進行幾項重大的建設項目,工程包括聖解脫道關房建設和禪堂住宿新床鋪。我們感恩任何數目的捐贈供養,建設工程細目如下,請細心關注。


解脫道關房建設

佛教轉凡成聖的修行系統可分為兩類——圓融道與聖解脫道。

圓融道為世間大部分佛教徒所常見之修法。然世間若只有圓融道而無聖解脫道,則佛教便失去了自身最大的特色。

聖解脫道是真正的百千萬劫難遭遇,欲依此門而得成就,所需具備的先決條件十分苛刻,可受此法者百萬人中不得其一。即便行者資糧具足、善根猛利,仍要得遇大善知識、依止明師方能順利起修。

換言之,具格行者與大善知識需同時圓滿,方能對“聖解脫道”發起挑戰,一窺究竟正法之堂奧。這其中的聖行成就,即是佛法中最為寶貴稀有的資產。行者為兌現此一正法的用功方式即為閉關精進、一路涅槃。

以其“聖解脫道”行者之萬難遭遇,是故發心護持之機緣同等殊勝難求!

護持聖解脫道關房建設,即為護持真實不虛之無上正法,耕耘罕有難得之種大福田,莊嚴十方三世一切之諸佛殿堂!

供養護持者所積深遠福報與無量功德不可思議,更與解脫聖僧結下殊勝因緣,是求道者一切最勝成就的方便善因!

關房建設預算:US$60,000
護持聖解脫道關房建設總功德主:3A(US$30,000)(關房功德埤留名)
護持聖解脫道關房建設功德主: US$1,000/一單位 (關房功德埤留名)


禪堂住宿新床鋪

由於禪堂的住宿床鋪和床墊已陳舊且狹窄, 禪堂住宿新床鋪可以讓行者們在經過漫長的練習後,在晚間能完全的休息。此護持供養行者寢具功德無量!

住宿新床鋪預算: US$5,000 (共14個床鋪)
護持住宿寢具功德主:US$350/一床鋪 (功德主芳名留名)


三鶴道場是非營利宗教組織,所以捐贈都可以免稅。

僅此代表三鶴道場,我們感謝您的發心護持、慷慨奉獻及隨喜功德。

祝願您闔家吉祥如意!

What is Huayen?

The Huayen School of Chinese Buddhism takes its name from the scriptural text on which it is based, known in Chinese as the “Huayen Ching” and in Sanskrit as the “Avatamsaka Sutra”. (“Huayen” literally means “flower adornment” or “flower ornament”.) It was founded as a separate lineage in the seventh century and has continued down to the present day.

The Spirit and Distinctive Features of the Huayen Teachings By Venerable Master Haiyun Jimeng

The three aspects of Huayen Strictly speaking, when talking about Huayen there are three aspects that one should take into account. One is the teaching of the Avatamsaka Sutra itself, another is the teaching of the Huayen School, and the third is the point of view of the person who is expounding the Sutra. But it is the last of these three that people usually get to hear most of Fruit-sellers are bound to say that their own fruit is the sweetest, and in the same way, every priest, monk or nun is bound to say that the doctrine they are teaching is the best, otherwise there would be no point in their teaching it at all. So, the Huayen teachings that I would like to introduce to you today are based on my own personal reading of the Avatamsaka Sutra and on the conclusions that I have reached after studying the Huayen School as a whole. But if you really want to know what the Sutra has to say, you should go and study it for yourself, absorb its message directly, and then judge and choose for yourself, in accordance with your own wisdom. For when someone else expounds the Sutra, even though their exposition may be based on the text, when they try to convey its essential spirit or its deeper significance, they can hardly help doing so from their own point of view. Even a teacher who is already fully enlightened, let us suppose, will still be expressing his or her individual way of understanding the teachings that are being transmitted. After the realization of Enlightenment, every Buddha preaches the Avatamsaka Sutra, although when I say “preaches”, I am not referring to a verbal exposition, but to a direct manifestation of the realm of Enlightenment. Although each Buddha’s realization is equally profound, the way in which that realization is manifested is not necessarily going to be the same in every case. When different Buddha preach the Avatamsaka Sutra, therefore, different realms of Enlightenment may appear.

The Huayen School

The Huayen (Korean Hwao’m, Japanese Kegon) School is based on the Avatamsaka or “Flower Ornament Sutra”, and counts as one of the four major schools of Chinese Buddhism. Its teachings emphasize the integration of Buddhist practice with all aspects of life, and yet, Haiyun believes that they are particularly suitable for the modern age. The school took shape during the Tang Dynasty (618-906), and although the monk Tu Shun or Fa Shun (557-640) is regarded as its First Patriarch, the real founders were Chih Yen (602-668) and his chief disciple Fa Tsang (643-712). Another important figure at the time was the hermit-scholar Li Tung Hsuan (63 5-730, or 646-740). After the Fourth Patriarch, Cheng Kuan (738-839), who wrote a massive commentary and subcommentary on the Sutra, and the Fifth Patriarch, Tsung Mi (780-8 14), who was also a lineage-holder in the Chan tradition, the Huayen School entered a period of decline, although its influence remained pervasive in East Asian Buddhism generally, and in the Chan (Korean S’on, Japanese Zen) School in particular.

An Introduction to the Origin and Development of Northern Mahayana Buddhism

Two ways to understand the ‘origin’ of Buddhism The ‘origin’ of Buddhism may in fact be understood in two ways. First, it may refer to the Buddha’s awareness, upon his enlightenment, of the ultimate truth of the universe and the meaning of life itself, an awareness that transcended the traditional concepts of the Indian society of his day. In Brahmin belief, there was a higher-than-human sphere, occupied by a God who created and governed the world. Since the Buddha had, through his profound practice and realization, attained the state beyond that of the heaven where there is neither thinking nor not-thinking (Naivasamjnanasamjnayatana), the doctrines that emerged from his spiritual experience where obviously bound to be different from those of other religious figures. In this sense it is the Buddha’s own supreme Enlightenment that is the ‘origin’ of Buddhism as a universal teaching which has transformed our world.

DAILY LIFE IN ONENESS

Humility - humble yourself in The eyes of The God. Merge into oneness through complete surrendering to the nature of is'ness. Rid yourself of separateness and allow Divine union to help you experience who and what you are. ~ACIM Please Join us this special event at Triple Crane monastery.
