妙音佛母讚   林鈺堂簡繁轉換 - 繁體

 

 

妙音源本寂 辯才顯智深
慧堪配文殊 德稱在磋嘉
啟智賜證悟 開通增善巧
心明福自臻 千弦傳萬古

弟子本寂請我為佛母造讚,而有此作。妙音出乎法身,故謂「源本寂」。佛母又號「辯才天女」,故云由此而顯彼之智深。在密法中此佛母乃文殊之明妃;而其功德則由彼化現之益喜磋嘉佛母之事蹟而得見一斑。佛母之加被,一般以開智慧、增善巧而著稱。或謂修此尊則在物質上難免匱乏,而我則深信「心明福自臻」——若能開慧,心地清明則種種福緣便會自然遇合。佛母所彈樂器有千弦,故能弘傳妙音、法音遍法界而達永久也。

Praise to Wondrous Sound Mother Buddha

 

Yutang Lin

 

 

Wondrous sounds emerged from original silence
Your abilities in debating reveal wisdom profound
While good enough to match Manjusri in wisdom
Equal in merits to Yeshe Tsogyal in Dharma services
Germinating wisdom in beings to grant enlightenment
Opening minds to increase their abilities in skillful means
With clarity of mind all good fortune will naturally gather
Your thousand strings will spread Dharma sounds forever

Comments:

Disciple Ben Ji (Original Silence) requested me to compose a praise to this Mother Buddha, and hence it was done accordingly. Wondrous sounds emerged from Dharmakaya, and hence the expression, "emerged from original silence." Another epithet for this Mother Buddha is "Goddess of Debates," and hence I mentioned that through her abilities in debating her profound wisdom revealed. In Buddhist Tantra she is recognized as the consort of Manjusri; and her merits may be recognized through the Dharma activities of her transformation, Yeshe Tsogyal. Some remarked that if one practices only teachings associated with this Mother Buddha, then it could become unavoidable that one will be lacking in material supports. And yet I firmly believe that "With clarity of mind all good fortune will naturally gather"—If one's wisdom has become germinated, and one's mind abides in clarity, then all sorts of good fortune will naturally gather together. The musical instrument, as played by this Mother Buddha, has thousand strings, and hence it could spread wondrous sounds and Dharma sounds everywhere in the Dharmadhatu forever.
