大家好,今天想跟大家分享一件奇事,我們是一間家族企業的金屬製造工廠,跟大部份經營者一樣,董事長向來很注重民間習俗,「拜拜」這事,除了每月的農初二及十六以外,每逢農曆七月的「普渡」,是事在必行的。而且,董事長還要找他信任的法師,辦好這場法會,自覺馬虎不得。

 

但妙的是,今年9月初,一如往昔的照常辦理,該有的牲禮、五齋、五果、花了上萬元的餅乾、罐頭、零嘴等等,以往地基主只有拜2隻雞腿和2罐飲料,這次還升級成雞腿便當,該有的一點也不少。普渡當天,一早就大費周章的排好供品,法師也依照慣例來陳列器物,時間一到下午兩點,就開始儀式,進行中的法會不時也要主管們輪替端著一盤供物,當日的天氣也相當炎熱,還有同仁幫法師打傘遮陽,就這麼一位主法師和一位助手在這般鏗鏘敲打中於四點左右便完成普渡法會,過程還少不了點香插在所有的供品上,方便好兄弟可以取用,和最後燒金紙等,法會結束後,法師還會丟饅頭、銅板、釘子,要大家去撿(末學參與了3回還是不知其用意為何,只知道撿到錢是帶財之意。)。

 

 

 

法會結束後大家很開心的分給員工供品,感覺這個普渡法會好像在辦活動似的,為了準備澎湃的供品,以示我們的大器,前一天連跑了2次賣場,心想好兄弟們真幸運,遇到今年我們準備的比較豐盛,唯獨這一年可以把兩個大大的供桌擺滿供品,往年都有點擺不滿的感覺。

 

但是,一切到了隔日,末學的身體開始非常不適,頭疼不是我的慣性,除了有時經期來前一天,但絕對不會這麼痛,當時還一直不斷想著,為何我頭會這麼痛,便開始不停的猜測著各種可能:會不會是最近超時加班,睡眠不足;會不會更有可能是自己性情不柔和心緒不穩定等等。正當末學在心中不停反覆的疑惑著,也嘗試著念佛,心中只念個兩句佛號,便再也念不下去了,反倒更加頭痛欲裂,不只如此,還加碼一直不停乾嘔。

 

這是我從來沒有一天之中這麼頻繁的現象,我也開始不免想到昨日的法會是不是不圓滿,總之,我有再多的猜想,乾嘔的狀況更嚴重了,甚至乾嘔出白沫,在身體百般的不適下,末學心中反覆幾次升起了替廠內眾生們護持一覺元的念頭,但心裡還是有些猶豫,覺得好像有點偷吃步,平常不練功,一但一發生狀況後就只想求特效藥的感覺,但是已經這麼難受了,難受到不這麼做好像不會停止頭痛,甚至快要呼吸困難,彷彿生命垂危。難受之餘,有種被逼著要去幫工廠眾生布施,連怎麼署名護持都不假思索的想好,而且還反覆在腦中不斷閃著。

 

最後末學再也受不了了,便拿起手機迅速的以廠內眾生之名義,轉護持款入一覺元專戶,神奇的是,竟從發送完的那一刻起,便沒再乾嘔,頭痛感也隨著睡眠慢慢消散,隔日也沒有再持續前一日這般頭疼的現象。生平頭一次在農曆七月有這麼劇烈難耐的感受,末學不解,為何我們這麼投注心力的普渡儀式,卻不及一個小小的三分鐘舉動。原來還有比供桌上的美食還來得有實質意義的看不見、摸不著的「能量」~ 好兄弟真的太識貨了。感恩一覺元這樣不思議的能場,救了末學也救了不同維次的眾生們。

 

再次感恩 弘聖 師父上人的正量救渡。

 

阿彌陀佛

Something Is Invisible, Intangible But Does Exist. / Experience Sharing

Author:Lee, Duan Rong

 

Hello everyone, I would like to share a strange thing with you today. We are a family-owned metal manufacturing factory. Like most owners, our chairman has always cared a lot about folk customs. Besides the second and sixteenth day of each lunar month, "worship” in every lunar July, "Pu Du," is a must do. Moreover, the chairman usually finds a master that he trusts to host this Dharma Service, and he is very cautious about this matter.

 

However, something was strange. At the beginning of September this year, everything about Pu Du was done as usual, including the sacrifices, Wuzhai such as daylily, black fungus, bean noodles, shiitake mushroom, and dried bamboo shoots, five fruits (orange, apple, passion fruit, peach, mango, pear), biscuits that cost more than ten thousand dollars, cans, snacks, etc. In the past, we only prepared 2 chicken drumsticks and 2 cans of drinks for the foundation guardian, but this time we upgraded to a chicken drumstick bento box, nothing less than what we should do. On the day of Pu Du, we made much effort to place the offerings. The monk placed his appliance as usual, and the ceremony began right on two o’clock in the afternoon. During the ongoing Dharma Service, the supervisors would take turns holding a plate of offerings from time to time. The weather on that day was quite hot, and some colleagues held the umbrellas for the master to protect him from the sun. Under the circumstances, the master and the assistants finished the ceremony till around four o’clock in such a sonorous atmosphere. The process also involved lighting incense and inserting it on all the offerings so that the good brothers could take them, and finally burning gold paper, etc. In the end of the ceremony, the master tossed steamed buns, coins, nails, which everyone could pick them up (I have participated the ceremony for 3 times and still don’t know its purpose. I only know that picking up money means bringing wealth.).

 

 

After the Dharma Service, everyone was happy to distribute the offerings to the employees. It seemed the Pu Du Dharma Service was being held as a party. In order to show our generosity, we went to the supermarket twice in a row yesterday. I thought that good brothers were so lucky. This year we had prepared more abundant food. This was the only year that we could fill two large tables with offerings fully. In previous years, there was space left on the tables.

 

However, on the next day, I started feeling very uncomfortable. I don’t often have headaches, except sometimes the day before my period, but that wasn’t as painful as this time. Then I kept thinking about why I had such a bad headache, so I started to guess various possibilities. Could it be the reason that I had been working overtime recently and not getting enough sleep? Was it because I wasn’t tender and stable enough? While I was questioning over and over again in my mind, I also tried to recite the Buddha's name. I only recited two sentences of the Buddha's name in my mind, and I couldn't recite it anymore. Instead, my headache became severe. Not only that but I kept retching.

 

I had never had so many problems during a day. I also began to wonder whether yesterday's Dharma Service was not completed well. In short, no matter how many speculations I had, the retching became more serious, and I even retched foams. When I suffered from the physical discomfort, the idea of donating money to the Yi Jue Yuan for all the sentient beings in the factory came up in my mind for several times, but I still hesitated a little. I felt like I was cheating, because I didn’t learn hard. And when the bad situation happened, I looked for a miracle pill instead. But I was already so uncomfortable that if I didn't do it, my headache would not stop. And I even had difficulty in breathing as if I was dying. While feeling uncomfortable, I felt compelled to give alms to all sentient beings in the factory. I even knew what name I should sign, and it kept occurring in my mind over and over again.

 

Finally, I couldn't bear it anymore, so I picked up my phone and quickly transferred the funds to the Yi Jue Yuan in the name of all the sentient beings in the factory. Miraculously, from the moment I donated, I stopped retching. The headache gradually disappeared when I slept, and there was no headache the next day. It was the first time in my life that I had such an uncomfortable feeling in the July of the lunar calendar. I couldn’t understand why the Pu Du ceremony that we put so much effort into was not as good as the three-minute action. It turned out that there was an invisible and intangible "energy" that was more substantial than the delicacies on the table. The good brothers were definitely insightful. I am grateful to the incredible energy field of Yi Jue Yuan for saving me and all sentient beings in different dimensions.

 

Thank Master Hong Sheng again for saving me by his compassionate energy.
