Shui Lu Grand Prayer 水陆法会

Significane of Shui Lu

The Grand Prayer that Blesses and Benefits All Sentient Beings is one of the grandest and most supreme of Chinese Buddhist prayers. This grand prayer liberates sentient beings from suffering through the extensive merit generated by making offerings of Dharma and food, so that all beings can attain happiness and enter the path of Buddhahood.

Participating in this grand prayer generates inconceivable merit for both the living and deceased. As one is making offerings to the Triple Gem of the ten directions and to tens of thousands of sentient beings within the six realms, the merit arising from this benefit not only oneself, but also one’s immediate and extended family.

This grand prayer takes seven days and nights to complete, and involves approximately 100 Venerables. 11 different prayer texts are recited in the various Inner and Outer Shrines.

水陆法会,是佛教佛事中最隆重殊胜的一种,即施斋食供养水陆众生,并说法以救拔。据说梁武帝曾夜梦神僧告之“六道四生,受苦无量,惟启建水陆无遮大法会拔济之,始能离苦得乐,步向佛道。

参与水陆法会,冥阳两利,亡者超度;生者植福。水陆法会以众缘共同成就,发一善心随喜参与,就有无量的不可思议功德存在;功德其实贵在一念的虔诚,能够不为一己而为一切众生,其所发的愿心愈是广大,功德愈是不可限量。

启建一堂水陆法会,需七昼夜才能功德圆满,共分内坛、外坛八个坛口;法师领众礼忏、修福。其中洒净、焰口法会及圆满日的送圣,是整个法会三大重点。总计约需百位以上法师,动员人力、物力颇巨。

Join us in one of the grandest Mahayana Buddhist rituals in the forms of extensive prayer and merits dedications; it is a majestic example of universal compassion. The opportunity to participate in such a meritorious event is most precious and should be cherished by all.

宏船老和尚圆寂廿八周年纪念
“佛法博大精深,其弘传之责任,不仅出家人,而尤赖在家居士共肩此艰巨任务。俾人人皆知正觉之大道。吾人研习佛法,约有远缘,近缘两大类别之根器,其夙根敏颖者,一闻千悟,可以顿超如来地,此曰近缘。其由积渐勤学,循序而进,终至解行相应,契合佛心而成道者,虽不一定今生证得,而待来生者,即曰远缘。便不论如何,诸位如能时时得有闻法之机会,或得阅及而受文字般若之熏陶;心生欢喜,以是因缘,即是种下菩提之因,久远将来,当亦有成佛之机会。故曰佛教方便多门也。”—— 摘自《宏船长老法汇》

法界圣凡水陆普度大斋胜会

水陆法会是佛教中最隆重最殊胜的一种经忏佛事法会。全名是:法界圣凡水陆普度大斋胜会

法界是指诸佛与众生本性平等,理常一故,通称法界。

圣凡是指十法界中,有四圣界即佛、菩萨、缘觉、声闻;有六凡界是天、人、阿修罗、地狱、饿鬼、畜生。

水陆是指在水、陆中三界众生居住受报之处。空中飞行之众生须依陆地而休息,故属于陆地,加上水中生灵,共称水陆。

普度是指悉皆度化六道众生,使之解脱饥饿之痛苦。

大斋是指不限制的给予众生饮食。

胜会是法施之意。除布施众生饮食外,又有诵经持咒之法施,令受苦众生心开意解,得法水之滋润,故名胜会。

会者聚集之意,教渡者与被教渡者集会于一堂。

即是说藉此启建水陆法会普度大斋之功德,超度六道中受苦众生,使之离苦得乐,趣入佛道。
