給所謂「金剛乘」弟子的社交網站行為準則--宗薩欽哲仁波切 - 达摩流浪汉 -          达摩流浪的博客

宗薩欽哲仁波切 2013年1月以英文公布於其臉書

如果你自認是個金剛乘弟子的話---無論事實上是真是假---只要你認為自己是金剛乘的修行者,那麼你就有責任維護這個深奧的傳統。

在金剛乘中,保持祕密非常重要。金剛乘之所以稱為「密咒乘」,是因為它要你祕密地修持。它並非有什麼見不得人之處因而需要保密,而是為了要讓修持者不落入「我執」對修持所可能帶來的陷阱與毀失。尤其是,修行者很容易受到「靈性物質主義」的侵蝕,以至於修持不是真的為了馴服與轉化自心,而只是另一種時尚宣言,用來裝點「我執」、加強自己的重要性;或只是讓他們感覺隸屬一個很「酷」的社交族群而已。以這種方式修持,金剛乘之道就會變得不只一無是處,還可能更糟。

同時,金剛乘教法所謂的「隱密」,是指對尚未接受恰當教法的人而言,其意義不太明顯,有點像是一種外國語言。由於金剛乘的某些形象與象徵對於尚未受過灌頂者來說,可能會狀似怪異甚或暴力,因此,通常都會建議將它們隱藏起來,以免讓新進的修行者心生退卻,甚至對佛教或金剛乘的法道產生謬誤的見解。

所以,當你在社交網站張貼任何東西時,請注意:你並非只為了一己閱讀之樂而張貼的,而是給全世界觀看的。而且你要知道:絕大多數的人看到你那些瘋狂的照片,或讀到你對所謂「上師」的那個人各種奇特的欽慕與幻想時,並不會像你一樣,享有相同的愉悅之情。

因此,對於所謂金剛乘弟子同伴們,我在此提供給諸位如何保護自己的建議。一方面讓你避免出糗,一方面保護你的佛法修持---同時,也藉此保護深奧的金剛乘傳統。

一、維護金剛乘的祕密性(這包括持守你的上師、你的修持、密續圖像、你所受過的灌頂、你所參加過的開示等祕密)。

切勿張貼密續圖像:如果你認為張貼令人驚聳的密續圖像(諸如多手、多腳、動物頭、雙身相、忿怒相等本尊)會讓你更形重要的話,你大概並不真正了解這些圖像的意義。

切勿張貼咒語或種子字:如果你認為將咒語或種子字張貼在臉書上可以拿來做為心情符號或自我改善輔助物的話,你不如去改變形象或去剪個頭髮,可能更為有用。

切勿談論你受過的灌頂:如果你認為自己在週末密乘灌頂的照片值得跟你貓咪的照片一齊張貼在臉書上的話,你應該先把貓咪送到尼泊爾去接受灌頂。而且,除非你得到上師的允許,切勿張貼任何金剛乘灌頂、開示或咒語的照片、錄影(錄像)或錄音。

切勿談論你領受過的深奧或祕密教法:有些人似乎覺得不時地把「大圓滿」、「大手印」這類的字眼掛在嘴邊是很時尚的。如果你領受了甚深的法教,最好依據教法所言,自己修持就好,不用告知他人。

二、避免落入靈性物質主義的誘惑,而把佛法拿來做為服侍我執的工具(切勿企圖拿你的上師、你的了悟、你的修持來自吹自擂。相同的,切勿批評其他修行人或法道)。

切勿與他人分享你的經驗或所謂的「成就」:如果你認為宣示你自以為證得的成就是值得做的事,那麼你可能一直都在忙著膨脹你的染污而已。須知:試圖用自己的修行來讓別人敬佩你,不是修行的一部份。切記要真誠、謙遜。沒有人會在乎你的禪定經驗,即使你有親見佛陀、獨角獸或七色彩虹的淨相。如果你自忖這些經驗都毫無自欺的話,再試一次,再想想看。

切勿誇耀你的上師:無論你認為自己的上師有多偉大,為了你自己之故,最好把虔敬心放在自己心上就好。切記,做為佛教徒不是參加某種膜拜式的異教。如果你認為自己的上師比別人的上師更好的話,那麼你可能也認為你的「平等捨」與「淨觀」都優於別人的「平等捨」與「淨觀」。

切勿與人分享你的所謂的「智慧」:如果你認為接受過深奧教法就是允許你四處宣說這些教法的話,那麼你就只是在展現你的愚痴而已。在你與他人「分享」佛陀或任何上師之話語前,先想想看:他們是否真的說過這些話?他們是說給什麼樣的聽眾聽的?

切勿混淆佛教與非佛教的見解:無論你受到七色彩虹與虹光球的啓發有多大,也無論你如何深信世界末日即將到來,請勿將你個人的幻想與偏好混入佛教。

尊重他人:若是沒有上座部與大乘做為基礎,就不會有金剛乘。金剛乘修行者若是鄙視或輕視上座部與大乘佛教的話,那是全然愚蠢的。如果你認為攻擊其他佛教徒就能改善佛教的話,請你幫佛教一個忙,不妨集中火力攻擊你自己的我執與偏見。

切勿造成不和諧:在你的網站聊天室中,試圖作為一個造成同修團體和諧的人,而不是一個引起麻煩與爭端的人。

永遠要檢視自己的動機:請勿在網路(網絡)上展現「瘋狂智慧」的行止,你只要啓發他人有顆善良的心即可。如果你認為自己完全是基於大悲心而張貼某項內容的話,試圖先確定你這麼做不會造成任何傷害。無論何時,若是你情不自禁地一定要張貼某項內容時,請先確定這些內容對於讀者與佛法都有幫助。

SOCIAL MEDIA GUIDELINES FOR SO-CALLED VAJRAYANA STUDENTS

If you think or believe that you are a student of Vajrayana—whether or
not that's true is another matter—but as long as you think you are a
Vajrayana practitioner, it becomes your responsibility to protect this
profound tradition.

It’s important to maintain secrecy in the Vajrayana. The Vajrayana is
called ‘the secret mantra yana’ because it is intended to be practiced
in secrecy. It is not secret because there is something to hide, but
in order to protect the practitioner from the pitfalls and downfalls
that ego can bring to the practice. In particular, practitioners tend
to fall prey to “spiritual materialism,” where their practice becomes
just another fashion statement intended to adorn their egos and make
them feel important, or have them feel that they’re part of a ‘cool’
social tribe, rather than to tame and transform their minds. When
practiced in this way, the Vajrayana path becomes worse than useless.

Also, the Vajrayana teachings are ‘hidden’ in the sense that their
meaning is not apparent to someone who has not received the
appropriate teachings. It’s like a foreign language. Because some of
the imagery and symbolism can seem strange or even violent to the
uninitiated, it’s generally recommended to keep it hidden so that it
doesn’t put off newer practitioners, who might develop wrong views
about the Buddhist path in general and the Vajrayana path in
particular.

While posting on social media, please bear in mind that you are not
only posting for your own reading pleasure, but to the whole wide
world who most likely don't share your amusement over crazy photos,
nor your peculiar adoration and fantasies of certain personalities you
call as guru.

Given this, here are some suggestions I offer fellow so-called
Vajrayana students about how you can protect yourself—both by avoiding
embarrassment and by protecting your Dharma practice—and also protect
the profound Vajrayana tradition:

(1) Maintain the secrecy of the Vajrayana (this includes secrecy about
your guru, your practice, tantric images, empowerments you have
received, teachings you have attended, etc.)

- Don’t post tantric images: If you think posting provocative tantric
images (such as images of deities with multiple arms, animal heads,
those in union, and wrathful deities) makes you important, you
probably don’t understand their meaning.
- Don’t post mantras and seed syllables: If you think mantras and seed
syllables should be posted on Facebook as mood enhancement and
self-improvement aids, a makeover or haircut might do a better job.
- Don’t talk about your empowerments: If you think images from your
weekend Vajrayana empowerment are worthy of being posted up next to
photos of your cat on Facebook, you should send your cat to Nepal for
enthronement. Unless you have obtained permission from the teacher, do
not post any photo, video or audio
recording of Vajrayana empowerments, teachings or mantras. - Don’t
talk about profound/secret teachings you may have received: Some
people seem to find it fashionable to hang words like "Dzogchen" and
"Mahamudra" in their mouths. If you have received profound
instructions, it is good to follow those instructions and keep them to
yourself.

(2) Avoid giving in to the temptations of spiritual materialism and
using Dharma in service of your ego (do not attempt to show off about
your guru, your understanding, your practice etc. Likewise, do not
speak badly of other practitioners or paths.)

- Don’t share your experiences and so-called attainments: If you think
declaring what you think you have attained is worthwhile, you may have
been busy bolstering your delusion. Trying to impress others with your
practice is not part of the practice. Try to be genuine and humble.
Nobody cares about your experiences in meditation, even if they
include visions of buddhas, unicorns or rainbows. If you think you are
free of self deception, go ahead, think again.
- Don’t boast about your guru: No matter how great you think your guru
is, it would probably serve better for you to keep your devotion to
yourself. Remember that being buddhist is not joining a cult. If you
think your guru is better than another’s, you probably think your
equanimity and pure perception are better than another’s.
- Don’t attempt to share your so-called wisdom: If you think receiving
profound teachings gives you license to proclaim them, you will
probably only display your ignorance. Before you “share” a quote from
the Buddha or from any of your teachers, take a moment to think if
they really said those words, and who the audience was meant to be.
- Don’t confuse Buddhism with non-Buddhist ideas: No matter how
inspired you might be of rainbows and orbs, and how convinced you are
about the end of the world, try not to mix your own
fantasies/idiosyncracies with Buddhism.
- Be respectful to others: Without Theravada and Mahayana as
foundation, there would be no Vajrayana. It would be completely
foolish of Vajrayana practitioners to look down on or show disdain
towards Theravada and Mahayana. If you think attacking other buddhists
will improve Buddhism, do a service for Buddhism, take aim at your own
ego and biasedness instead.
- Don’t create disharmony: Try to be the one who brings harmony into
the sangha community with your online chatter, instead of trouble and
disputes.
- Always be mindful of your motivation: Please do not attempt to
display "crazy wisdom" behaviors online, just inspire others to have a
good heart. If you think you are posting something out of compassion,
try first to make sure you are doing no harm. Whenever you can't let
go of the itch to post something, make sure that it helps whoever who
reads it and the Dharma.
