《慈悲地藏宝忏》简介 | About the Puja


The Puja is based on the Buddhist script <Compassionate Ksitigarbha Repentance Rituals>. Developed during the Ming Dynasty, it combines the teachings of multiple Buddhist scriptures about Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva. The intention was to recommend a series of ceremonial rituals for Buddhists to participate and over time gain insights into their practice in relation to how they have been living their lives.


Specifically, practitioners are expected to sincerely repent on individuals acts arising from the 3 poisons (delusion, greed & aversion), and also empathetically repent on behalf of beings in the realms of animals, ghosts and humans. In doing so, they are able to cleanse their karmic balance, develop compassion for all sentient beings and progress further in their cultivation.


《慈悲地藏忏法》共有三卷,是依据《地藏菩萨本愿经》、《大乘大集地藏十轮经》、《占察善恶业报经》等有关地藏菩萨的经典制订,其中详述了《地藏忏》的缘起。我们凡夫众生虽然粗略的知道什么是三宝,但因为没有发心修行,所以还与一切众生分别你我,并任由自己的贪嗔痴,随着色声香味触法而造作五逆、十恶、杀、盗、淫、妄等等,乃至广开八万四千诸尘劳门。


这些尘劳之门遮蔽了八万四千诸般若道,令我们无始至今,仍未能从生老病死中解脱,因此佛陀与地藏菩萨在忉利天宫,深感哀悯,教授我们忏悔净业的次第与方法:


首先,忏悔贪嗔痴三毒烦恼;

其次,忏悔淫、贪、慢、嗔等业障;

再次,忏悔六根招致的报障;

然后,忏悔鬼、畜、人三道余愆;

最后,劝佛弟子效仿地藏菩萨发广大愿:

上弘佛道,下化众生

究竟圆常,等归寂灭

常见问题|FAQ


Q1: 会不会限制可以登记的供养选项组合吗?| Is there a limitation to the categories I can register for?


A1: 不会限制。分组别只是为了让大家更容易明白法会的各种供养选项。| There are no limitations. Categorisation is solely meant to facilitate the understanding of various options for the Puja.


Q2: 《地藏忏悔消灾法会》和《慈悲地藏宝忏》全年法会有什么不同?| What is the difference between this Puja and the <Ksitigarbha Repentance &Negative Karma Elimination Puja> ?


A2: 根本上很相像,只不过《地藏忏悔消灾法会》比较短(两小时左右),而《慈悲地藏宝忏》法会时间比较长(七小时左右)。因此前者产生的功德比较适合为登记者消灾,而《慈悲地藏宝忏》法会产生的功德比较大,因此除了能为自己消灾,也适合为往生者超荐。| Both are fundamentally very similar. The main difference is the duration of the Puja i.e. <Ksitigarbha Repentance &Negative Karma Elimination Puja> is shorter at around 2 hours, while <Ksitigarbha Compassion, Repentance and Ancestral Remembrance Puja> is much longer at around 7 hours. Therefore, the merit produced for the former is more suitable for blessing living individuals, while the latter is also suitable for individual blessing, AND additionally suitable for blessing those who have passed on.


Q3: 大牌位和小牌位的区别在哪里?| What is the difference between big and small tablets?


A3: 每个大牌位将会摆在法会专用的桌上,并有专属的供斋与供品。而小牌位是贴在木板墙上,供品与斋菜是共享的。由于每个人的经济能力不同,所以本寺也设了小牌位以方便更多善信们登记。最重要的还是诚心与信心。| Big tablets are placed on the prayer table and each tablet has its own dedicated offerings. Small tablets are placed on wooden wall boards and the offerings are shared. We understand the reality of different financial standings amongst our fellows and so offer the small tablets to give more people access to the Puja. At the end of the day, sincerity and confidence in the Dharma matters the most.
