Message from Rinpoche for those chanting the Seven Line Prayer

Published on 03 November 2015

Rinpoche just sent us a message about the accumulation of the Seven Line Prayer  - 

"I request that those who are participating chant and count as accurately as possible.

 

When I say “accurately,” I am not talking particularly about pronunciation or speed. Of course the main thing is always guru devotion and one-pointed trust in Guru Rinpoche. But here I am talking about clicking the mala.

 

Especially so-called older practitioners often have a habit of clicking and counting the mala very fast. So for instance, in one Seven-Line Prayer, they may habitually click the mala about seven times.

That is not only a misdeed, but adding their wrong count to the group total may cause others to think they don’t need to chant. So please count very accurately.

 

And although individuals can always chant – and I am sure there are very many people chanting and praying to Guru Rinpoche individually – it is sometimes much more effective to do this as a group.

 

Just like trying to lift a big mountain or something very heavy, many people coming together to pray and joining hands in a group effort can achieve wonderful things through teamwork.

 

That’s why we have the concepts of 'Operation Skull Garland' and 'Operation Following in Your Footsteps'."

仁波切致参与《七句祈请文》持诵者的讯息

 

我请大家要尽可能地精确持诵和计数。

我说的“精确”并非特别指发音或速度上的精确。当然,首要的一直都是对上师的虔心和对莲师的专一信赖,不过我在此谈的是念珠的拨动。

尤其是所谓的资深修行人,他们往往习惯非常快速地拨动、计算念珠。例如,他们可能念一次《七句祈请文》就惯性地拨了大约7次念珠。

这不仅是一个过失,而且因为把错误的计数加进团体总数里,可能会导致其他人觉得自己就无需持诵了。所以请非常精确地计数。

虽然个人总是可以持诵,而我也确信有许多人各别地在持诵和对莲师祈愿。有时在团体里如此修持更有效力。

就如企图移山或重物,众人聚集祈愿,在团体里携手共修,能够透过团队合作而成就美妙的结果。

这就是我们有《颅鬘》和《随汝尊》两个计划的原因。

Please remember that this initative is for the accumulation of the Seven Line Prayer, not for the Vajra Guru Mantra. Of course, people are welcome to do Vajra Guru mantras as well, but the accumulation request is only for the Seven Line Prayer.

 

此外,请留意此计划是为了《七句祈请文》的持诵累计,不是《莲师心咒》。当然也是欢迎大家持诵《莲师心咒》,但持诵累计的要求只针对《七句祈请文》。
