森林一日游

请大家尽量使用防蚊液,白蛉及蚊子因工程的进行而大量涌出,它们会隔着衣服叮咬大家。你当下不会发现自己遭叮咬了,但过了几天后你就会感觉疼痒不已。

我在系鞋带时听见董俊鹏的这几句话。蚊虫能隔着衣服叮咬人?真的吗?

我首次前往马来西亚郊野的经历就是将防蚊液喷满全身——这犹如一种激起冒险感与敬畏感的现代仪式。

我并不期待成为某只蚊虫的午餐,或醒来时看见自己的整只手臂出现红色斑点。然而,如果我放弃探索热带地区的这一片翠绿森林,以及人们形容为“真正的马来西亚”的这片土地,我究竟是一个怎样的旅客呢?

当天我跟随一支大多是克切拉职员或志工的70人队伍,一同前往参观这片即将成为克切拉禅修林的土地。克切拉禅修林是一个旨在给过度工作的城市人,以及附近城镇的人们带来宁静、幽静及简单生活方式的闭关中心。

在与克切拉佛教团体的精神导师尊贵的詹仁波切会面前,负责人为大伙儿安排了游览环节。詹仁波切是一名转世高僧。在加入印度甘丹萨济寺前,仁波切于美国长大。仁波切于1992年前来马来西亚弘法,而在十年之内,他便创立了克切拉。话说回头,负责导览的董俊鹏摇身一变,由一位时髦的城市人,变身一位常在野外生活的人——他戴着一顶棒球帽、脚踩着长筒皮靴并身穿着常在他身上看见的白衬衫。他带领我们走过大门,然后步入35英亩的土地。顿时我们走进一片沼泽地,四周的野草中隐隐约约传出蝉和青蛙的叫声。看到眼前这片景象,我实在难以想象这片荒野终有一天将被开发成一个他人从远处而至的目的地。

董俊鹏带领我们步上穿过那片沼泽地的泥路,接着我们跟着蜿蜒的山路走上小山丘。一路上,一些人发现地面上有上百只红蚁到处乱窜。红蚁跳上人们的长靴上,并爬上人们的裤子上去。在尝试摆脱这些饥饿的小昆虫的同时,我们也只好加快脚步。当我们抵达山顶时,站在高处的我们能眺望到四周绿油油的风景,之前的疲累在那一刻也都值得了。

在山顶上,我们从远处观望山林。“我们站着的地点,就是拉章的建筑地。”董俊鹏如是解释。我低头看着山下的土地,那里大规模的艰巨工作使我感到钦佩不已。清除一长片森林土地的工作已经完成,然而,要把广阔的森林包围成一个供克切拉职员做闭关的货柜屋范围,以及公开禅修林让疲惫的城市人,还有那些对拥挤的交通与购物广场感到厌倦的人、希望吸取新鲜空气并置身于大自然及宁静中的人前来拜访,这还需要一段时间。

接下去的两个小时内,董俊鹏向我们解说克切拉禅修林的建筑布局。禅修林的焦点将会是释迦牟尼佛世界和平大殿(“Shakyamuni World Peace Hall”之暂译名)。这是一座能容纳3000人的禅修大殿。在那里,人们可以进行坐禅,以及找寻内心的清明和平静。克切拉禅修林力求将灵修与实践融合,因此在那里也将设有有机菜园及蜡烛制造设施。人们会在该处制造蜡烛,而访客也可以将那些蜡烛供养在酥油灯屋里,当作是向佛菩萨做供养。

经过两小时的徒步,以及喷了更多一些的防蚊液后,我们就停下脚步,在临时住处歇息下来。到了傍晚时分,我们享受由克切拉素食餐馆为大伙儿准备的美味素食晚餐。接着,我们从这里走进主要帐篷内,仁波切就在这里与我们进行私人会晤。当仁波切步入帐篷并坐下时,他不急不缓地挥动传统的达玛茹鼓,同时以一段祈愿文作为会晤的开始。

在会晤中,仁波切叙述创立克切拉禅修林的灵感乃来自苏格兰一个名为芬霍恩(Findhorn)的灵修社区。他自小便得知芬霍恩(Findhorn)这个地方,因此他也想打造一个类似的社区:一个供不同宗教信仰的人前来大自然环境进行冥想的地方。

克切拉禅修林中的克切拉之村,就会是这样的一个社区。那里将会是仁波切的弟子(或被仁波切亲切地称为“克切拉人”)歇息放松,以及在大自然环境中与自己内心沟通的一个地方。

仁波切想象访客们前来进行两种禅修法:一是行禅,二是坐禅。这两种禅修法是任何人都能做的,不一定是佛教徒才能这么做。虽然这两种禅修法看起来非常简单,但这两种禅修法能帮助人们将心安抚下来,并帮助我们增强记忆力、集中力及专注力。仁波切在结束会晤前给大伙儿送上礼物,并念诵最后一个祈愿文。席上的佛教徒也跟着一起念诵,一致的藏语念诵声顿时在帐篷内回响。

我的郊野一日游,成了充满宗教仪式的一天;从如淋上防蚊液到古老的藏语念诵。那都是简单且神圣的仪式——这一切都与范·莫里森(Van Morrison)所唱出的普世真理“Behind the ritual, You’ll find the spiritual”一样。

步行了一整天,我在夜里离开森林时虽然感到疲惫,但心里却是满足的。我不需要担心蚊虫的叮咬。无论我的精神崇高与否,为了在几英里的路上避开每一只蚊虫,我已“浸泡”在大量的避蚊胺里了。

In Bentong (Malaysia), the town we live in and where Kechara Forest Retreat is, we have built a public chapel to Dorje Shugden for the locals. They really love it. Many locals like to come early in the morning to make offerings and special prayers to Dorje Shugden then go to work. The locals have reported many of their prayers being fulfilled from praying to Dorje Shugden at this chapel. As a result, more are joining in to pray to powerful Dorje Shugden the world peace protector who is no other than Manjushri. That is beautiful. ~Tsem Rinpoche

I am not liked by everyone because I choose to not give up my practice of Dorje Shugden even when I am threatened, segregated, hated, degraded and accused of all manner of things just for it. But at least I kept my promise to my guru to practice Dorje Shugden 30 years ago. I am a person that keeps my promises. My respect for integrity makes me who I am. ~ Tsem Rinpoche - Follow H.E.
