    除讲课外,仁波切还会口传金刚萨埵百字明咒。请大家尽量参加。
     
    净除业障金刚萨埵心咒及百字明咒之功德
    在此略续中也宣说了此密咒「依此咒即便是造无间罪、欺骗一切如来、诋毁正法及造所有罪业者,依靠一切如来的手印金刚萨埵,现世中能迅速成就一切求的悉地,或者殊胜悉地、金刚悉地、或金刚萨埵悉地,或善逝之悉地」。

    这是出有坏如来金刚萨埵亲口说的,金刚萨埵的这一百字明在许多续中都出现过,是破密乘誓言等所有重罪的无上对治法,仅仅念诵,以前的一切罪业也会清净无馀,以後增上的相续能永远灭除,堪称为一切悉地大主尊、一切密咒之王。……

    【念佛人是否要念诵金刚萨垛心咒】 (里面特别提到了专修,圆修,杂修等区别。非常好的开示!)

  • 大家好,

    之前在早读小组以及佛学社讨论过的为梦想行动的捐书计划,现在情况如下:

    1。佛学社同学已经捐款$168. 2。我们和梦想行动的负责人已经联络上。并选好了两个初步试验捐书的点。从当当网上捐书,这对梦想行动来说,是第一次。所以选了两个点,一个是四川省宜宾市翠屏区南广镇初级中学校, 一个是湖南省株洲市茶陵县虎踞学校小学部。这两个学校一个离市区较近,交通还算方便,另一个处于偏远地区,交通不便,需要志愿者专门去很远的邮局取取书。所以梦想的负责人希望看看我们捐书的情况以及志愿者取书的情况,做一个初步测试,为今后可以大规模给更多点儿捐书铺个路。 附件里的PDF文件及为今年梦想各个点儿的介绍。我们帮忙的两个点,一个在第二页,一个在第三页(地区介绍)和第五页(学校介绍)。 3。佛学社的同学先在当当网上选了几本书,主要是弟子规等中华传统和道德的书。梦想负责人选了50本书左右,也在当当网上。他们的初衷是买孩子们有兴趣读的书。虽然我们的初衷不完全相同,但是我想肯定有共同之处。他选的书里,前一半主要是给中学的。后面的主要是给小学的。

    现在大家能做什么?

    我把这一共56本书的介绍都给大家集中到一个Word 文档里面了。主要是书名,作者名,出版社名,当当书价,读者评分, 书本简介。还有到详细介绍的链接。 这个文件是个表格。每本书右面那栏请大家 1)选择买还是不买,还是无所谓 2)任何其他评论。

    因为我之前比较忙,所以这件事一直拖拖拉拉没有做完。大家如果可以尽快回复(填好表格),再把附件回复这封信寄回来,我可以尽快总结整理,尽快在网上订书,书才可以在志愿者还在那里的时候寄到。谢谢大家!

    Jeff是否可以转发佛学社。

    今后进展再和大家汇报。或者如果需要捐款,再和大家说!

    晓静

  • 佛学社第一次募捐活动募集$100 (觉得真不错啊,因为那次活动只有几个人而已)。 捐款将用于在当当网上给菁菁所在的梦想行动买书,书会由志愿者带到各地图书室。这个募款行动会在每个月末的周五佛学社活动上进行。之所以每月都有捐款活动,是因为希望大家常常发菩提心,而不是一次捐款就好了。 每次捐款不用多, 但是经常捐可以激发大家善心常在。

    因为早读小组没有定期的实体活动,所以早读小组上的同学(在Bloomington) 可以直接和我/或者绍杰&冯惠/或者Jeff联系。或者单独捐助梦想行动。 希望单独和梦想行动联系的同学,可以去他们的网站:http://www.dreamcorps.org/ch/ (右上角有捐助信息) 

    同时也希望大家看到合适的好书,向我们推荐。我们好在当当网上订购。书要适合小学生读。最好是指导小朋友如何做人方面的。我们最近选了弟子规,爱心树,等书。 等书目和梦想行动的负责人确定下来,再和大家详细汇报。
