马头明王 Hayagriva Avalokitesvara
Posted On 29/11/2010

Hayagriva Avalokitesvara 马头观音, the fierce 3-eyed horse-headed burning-red form. Otherwise known as 马头明王 Hayagriva Vidyaraja, and the Vajra of Chewing or Speed. He is both a Bodhisattva & a Guardian Deity, situated at the bottom of the 1st row of the Lotus Section of the Garbhakosa Mandala. The horse head represents the single-minded desire of the horse for water and grass, which is like his will to save sentient beings; or the great running speed of the horse, which can be compared the speed that he appears to those who need him. He is the esoteric guardian of the Lotus Section, all devotees of Avalokitesvara, & the teacher of sentient beings in the animal realm.
马头金刚也叫马头明王、马头观音、马头观自在,藏语称“丹真”其重要标识是小马头正仰天长啸。梵名Hayagrīva 何耶揭梨婆,胎藏界观音院之一尊,密宗认为他是六观音之一,也有说是无量寿佛的忿怒身。以配止观所说六观音之狮子无畏观音,为畜生道之教主,是无量寿之忿怒身,以观音为自性身,以马头置于首,故曰马头观音,亦曰马大士。为大忿怒威猛摧伏之形,故称马头明王,乃五部明王中莲华部之明王也,如转轮圣王之宝马驰驱四方而威伏之,表跋涉生死大海摧伏四魔之大威势力、精进力也,又表啖食无明重障之意 。

历史记载
《大日经疏》五曰:「何耶羯梨婆, 译云马头,其非黄非赤,如日初出之色,以白莲华为璎珞等。庄严其身光焰猛盛,赫奕如?指甲长利,双牙上出,首髻狮子顶毛,作极吼怒之状,此是莲华部忿怒持明王。也犹如转轮王宝马巡历四洲,于一时一切处去心不息,诸菩萨大精进力,亦复如是,所以得如是威猛之势,于生死重障中不顾身命,多所摧伏者。正为白净大悲心故, 故以白莲璎珞而自严身也。」

马头金刚
《大日经义释》七曰: 「莲华部眷属以马头为忿怒明王。」义轨曰:「马头明王,贺野纥里缚,啖食无明诸障尽也。」 《秘藏记》末曰:「马头无量寿忿怒,自性轮观音。」 又曰:「马头观音菩萨,赤肉色,大忿怒之相,并三面,牙在唇上,头有白马之形如轮王宝马。」经轨有《诃耶?婆观世音菩萨法印咒品》(出陀罗尼集经第七)何耶揭?婆像法,何耶揭?婆观世音菩萨受法坛。一面二臂的马头明王,他是佛,也是菩萨,也是护法; 以后者的资格而为莲花部的明王。该明王一面二臂,身红色,三目圆睁,獠牙外露,发须皆红黄上竖,头顶上有绿色马首。 右手持骷髅宝杖,左手施期克印。头戴五骷髅冠,项挂五十人头璎珞,以虎皮为裙,以蛇饰为庄严。 双足右屈左,以莲花日轮为座,威立于炽热般若烈焰中。

马头金刚为一头四臂,火焰发髻中有三个马头形象,并排而立。左肩斜披长蛇,蛇头尾系于肩上。右上手持杵,下手持匕首,左上手持莲枝,下手持金翅鸟。左展立姿,下踏长蛇,蛇身扭曲如绳状。着虎皮裙,裙上有阴线刻花装饰。
清宫所系黄纸签云:“口克达穆?玛大利益马头金刚。二十年十月二十五日收,……。”可见这种少见的马头刚形象为嘎当派所供奉,多强调他与金翅鸟和龙族的关系。
马头金刚,梵文原义为“马项”,即神像头上有马头形象出现,此尊的标志。马头金刚来源于印度教。据印度教传说,梵天创造了天神和魔鬼,二者间经常发生战争。天神凭《吠陀》经典赋予的力量屡战屡胜,魔鬼为了摆脱困境,相毁掉《吠陀》。他们派出两名魔鬼乘天神睡熟之际,盗出天书,撕碎后藏到海底。在印度教观念中,《吠陀》不仅是一部神圣的经典,它还是世界每次大劫毁灭后重新再生的基础,是众神力量的源泉。没有了《吠陀》后,世界一片混乱,面临毁灭不能再生的绝境。毗湿奴化身马头金刚的形象将魔鬼杀死,抢救出《吠陀》,拯救了世界。作为毗湿奴神化身之一的马头金刚由此成为经典的守护者,知识的保护神。同时由于毗湿奴神具有太阳神的性格,骑着金翅鸟(太阳的化身),所以马头金刚跟金翅鸟也有密切的关系。
莲华生入西藏将马头金刚的信仰带到了西藏,并亲自指导吐蕃赞普赤松德赞修习。在宁玛派的神系中,本初佛是普贤如来,是法身,马头号金刚是受用身,莲花生为变化身。从这个角度也能解释莲花生与马头金刚的特殊关系。由于莲花生大师的极力宣传,马头金刚的信仰在西藏得到了广泛的传播,为各教派所接受。另外,在西藏的一则传说里提到观音菩萨化身马头金刚解救困于恶魔中的众商人,反映出马头金刚与观音菩萨的关系。所以在神系里,马头金刚被看作是无量光佛的化身。但是,也有记载他是阿闪佛的化身。后一种马头金刚应是在密教盛行后出现的,以三头六臂(有时拥明妃)为代表。马头金刚在传入西藏的过程中内容越来越丰富,变化也越来越多,可以区分为宁玛派和格鲁派,宁玛派的马头金刚除了有马头外还有一双翅膀。

由于观音菩萨在佛都的特殊地位,马头金刚也就成为少数几乎普遍供奉的金刚之一,其造型有单、双身之分,双身多为3头6臂,单身则有单面2臂、4臂和3面6臂。因教派不同,有的带翅膀,有的不带翅膀。
马头金刚项挂骷髅头项链,腰围虎皮裙,圆睁3眼,膝、手、腕、颈处都盘绕着蛇,各手分别持骷髅碗、绳索、蛇、骷髅杖等。

马头金刚的显著标志,是在红色的鬃毛里有1个或3个绿色小马头,个别的头顶上同时还有一条小蛇。

功德
在西藏,马头金刚是咒师们的主要本尊。每逢有旱灾、水患或任何大自然灾害,咒师以及僧人或者牧民们便会聚集一起,修诵这位本尊的仪轨,来禳解灾难。
修持马头金刚本尊,不单可以除障,而且临终可以往生于观音或弥陀的净土。故此,不仅藏密非常重视马头金刚,即使日本的东密也同样极其青睐。
马头明王的主要功德为:降伏罗刹、鬼神、天龙八部之一切魔障, 消无明业障、瘟疫、病苦、免一切恶咒邪法等。 修持此本尊法,可获无痛苦之大乐空性成就果位。 诸本尊中唯有马头明王在发髻上有一或三个马头。 此表征为啖食一切众生无明罪障,摧破诸恐而现之形。

马头金刚本身有多种化相,四续部都有修持方法,各教派也都比较重视和修习,从而衍伸出多支传承。其中的密相马头金刚,属于无上密续本尊,在格鲁派内比较流行。密相马头金刚的咒轮,可以对治及防止各种魔类、邪术、星兆不祥、地神及龙族灾害等,力量远远高于其它咒轮。
格鲁派密相马头金刚的传承也很殊胜,是来自嘎举的“奔顿究刚巴”的祖师(Dpon Ston Skyur Gang Pa)。奔顿究刚巴是一位香巴噶举派的祖师,修行境界很高,以“梦身”去到莲华生大师座前,请求一个能令众生轻易地除障伏魔的法门,莲师便向他传授了这个密相马头金刚。
密相马头金刚的形象,如仪轨中所描述:
红色三头共六臂,中红右绿左白脸,
上有马头翠绿色,怒啸震慑众邪魔,
右持金杵尸杖剑,左手斥印矛肠绳,
表情愤怒具九相,尸林装束具八足,
左伸右屈踩八蟒,周围熊熊烈火烧,
体肉从喉至足跟,密布微尘金刚身。

disorder
Posted On 24/11/2010

J was about 33 this yr. Was working as a accountant in a company before. Life was suppose to be good for her then. However, her hubby had an divorce with her last yr becos of a third part from china. and she lost a marriage and had a 2 yr old kid with her.

both her parents were already no longer around and she hv no siblings to turn to and she had to live in a rented room wiht her kid. Things gt worse this yr as she lost her Job…be-cos she got a problem….she hv sleeping disorder and cannot handle her emotions…

she had seek help from a few doctors and psychiatrist, but things are not improving…………..

She was intro to me by her friends and we meet up at my usual McDonald after many explanation…as she said the meeting place was too far , but i explain to her, for ba zi reading, I only do it at that particular mac…not be-cos im lazy but be-cos that area i chose hv my protecting guardian around and thus it will be safer for me and my client when i need to reveal more detail about karmic debtors in her life.
finally she agreed.

We meet up at the appointment time, she was a very nice looking lady but with a very negative aura energy engulfing her…its sooo dark green..

after some ice breaking, she starts to tell me more abt her life..while talking, her tear just uncontrollably roll down… i observed that her fingers were full of cuts and her hands gt lots of scratches, n further observation i saw her keep scratching her own hands while talking to me.and its not normal scratching but “hard” one…

Besides her actions , the way she talk was very very very negative.

Her ba zi belongs to the weak body element and they are full of 官杀.. i guess this the cause of her depression and bad marriage.

her this 5 years luck pillar was 伤官 破 正官。。。thats y both work and marriage hv problem. and i realise she like white so much and metal in her case aggravate the situation.

well i guess she was just like many others who is not aware for their life template , thus keep going the wrong way and doing the wrong thing to worsen their life.

a person need to ensure his physical body element energy well balanced and need to do the correct things to atone their karmic debts and good mental energy in-order to walk out from their life template..

I went through her life template with her and advise her ways to help her to get her required element in her 衣食住行。 I also explain to her about her karmic debts on killing in her previous life and the effect on her current OCD in this life. And taught her , her way of lightening her karmic debts.

I scanned her soul..well she is not a 先天灵 which I hv been searching for but i see that her ling belongs to quite high energy type but because its never being awake before and its not sync with her mind, n being negative..she attracted lot of negatives energy which in turn tinted her soul energy. if this were to go on…i believe her soul will just gets lower n lower..n it will jus make her total break down in no time.

I decided to to wake her soul abit and teach her my 光音法门 meditation..which will help her to flush her negative energy, build up her body element energy and attract positivity to her.

I took quite some time to explain to her on soul and soul cultivation.
After which i ask her if she want to learn?

after some consideration her say yes.

while sitting in the mac, i summon energy from 光音天 and blast it at her soul, while she close her eyes and relax…in no time, her soul waken…she was shock but luckily before it , I had already explain the things that she is going to exp…i din fully awake her soul as she still hv karmic debtors and negative energy attached tot her soul…i jus wake it abit so that she is able to do 光音法门

well…. though my main ideal was to find and trained 先天灵 but still i dun neglect normal 灵 bodies….i believe all the normal ling if were to cultivate properly, there will be time they will 灵归元 too!

at the end session, i ask J will she follows my advice… she told me..if she hv already found the way and she still dun follow..well..she then really deserved to suffer..

我会祝福你。。。
