《转法轮经》(梵文:DharmacakraPravartana Sūtra;巴利文:Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta),是释迦牟尼佛证悟后开示的第一篇经。佛陀到鹿野苑向曾跟随他的5位修苦行行者说法,其中有行者当场得开法眼证初果成圣人,而当天请求出家,为佛陀的弟子,可称得上是“三宝圆满之日”。

佛陀说法度众45年,从《转法轮经》开始,而《转法轮经》是诸法之总纲,内容包括中道及四圣谛的三转十二行相。在开始时佛陀告诉苦行的五比丘舍弃追求欲望享受的乐行和折磨肉体的苦行的两种极端,因这两种极端无益,不能通往正觉。佛陀接着宣说离开两种极端,理智可行的中道修行方法,即八正道。众生修习中道法,可证悟四圣谛,走向圆满的清静涅槃及彻底解脱。说法完后,五比丘之一的憍陈如首先得清净法眼,佛陀说“憍陈如证悟了”(aññāsi vata bho Koņḍañño),从此被称为阿若憍陈如。接着是诸天众欢喜赞叹。

大家以巴利语诵念《转法轮经》时,忆念就像回归到佛陀首次说法给5位苦行的行者时,而内心法喜、清净明亮地诵念。当我们诵念,心就被提高升华,与百万尊佛结功德善缘。(巴利语:(pàli-bhàsà),英文名称(pali)是古代印度一种语言,是佛陀时代摩揭陀国一带的大众语。据说佛陀就是用这种语言说法的,所以弟子们也用这种语言记诵佛陀的经教。)

《转法轮经》中的每一个字都是财富,称为 “圣人财富”,即让人成为圣人之财富。我们应以清净无染及解脱烦恼之心,诵念每一段经文,而且要持之以恒,因为每一个字都是一笔宝贵的财富。

诵念《转法轮经》就如同在温习佛陀的教诲,品尝法味。我们应以清净纯洁之心温习,整个过程法喜充满,最终必然生起大功德与大财富,即圣人之财富。这是胜于人间及天人的财富,称为涅槃财富。

因此,诵念时千万不要漏字,因为每一个字都是历经20阿僧衹又10万大劫,以及加上2500多年才得来。有缘得见文字可一把眼福,有幸阅读则心满意足,如果还能背诵下来,则身心皆具无量之功德。该功德将会遍布全身内外,包括粗人身、天人身、色界梵天人身、无色界梵天人身和法身。

可以完整背诵《转法轮经》者,内心必将充满功德,全身上下清净庄严,戒法飘香,满溢财富,称为色身财。天人遇见人间钻石会无动于衷,却会常伴诵念《转法轮经》者之身旁。因为诵出的每一句经文,价值都胜过钻石,乃无上之珍宝。

诵念《转法轮经》会产生无量的功德,犹如一个功德的源泉,源源不断的生起世间财、天界财和涅槃财。

越诵念功德越多,就如同在财富的中央诵念一样。因为我们如法修功德,功德会去向人间和天界,产生无穷无尽的世间财和天界财。只需轻轻意念功德,它就会源源不断的涌现出来。

因此,一边诵念,一边保持轻松的心情,每一遍都很重要,可能会具足见法之因缘。这种机缘并不多见,持之以恒的诵念,财富自然会生起(内在财富和外在财富)。

不是每个人都具备这样的善缘,只有具足大福报的人,才会具足诵念《转法轮经》之善缘。试想一下,全世界有70多亿人口,信仰佛教的人却少之又少,具足诵念《转法轮经》善缘的人更是廖廖无几。具足此善缘者,可谓是具大福报之人,自己作为少数人之一,有缘诵念佛陀开示的第一部经。因此,大家可以多邀请身边的人一同来诵念,这非常重要。诵念者必将在世俗和修行道上圆满成就,且应常常自省,我们就是世间少数者之一。

诵念《转法轮经》的功德利益:具足悦耳之声、智慧如海、能言善辩、音色动听,朱唇皓齿,口齿留香。发出的声音不会尖锐、刺耳,同时耳朵灵敏,无耳鸣,外形漂亮,可听见粗细之声,甚至天人声。与此同时,眼睛所见之物都是美好的,甚至得见法轮。在诵念时双手合十,手指如蜡烛一般纤细漂亮。双手合十后,以虔诚心礼敬佛和诵念经文,那么生起的功德力量,将助我们所遇之事皆圆满美好,受众人爱戴。

以团队的形式诵念经文,力量会越大。作为一个团队时,做事会更加便捷,拥有无数的助手,且人人具足美德,具备能力与乐善好施。邀请更多的人来诵念,让团队不断的发展壮大。

除此之外,通过诵念《转法轮经》,可以很好的守护我们的心,如同一副佛法良药,诵经是外用,默念是内服,内外结合,可助身心健康。有些人患癌症晚期,却依然保持愉快的心情,不在意身体的疼痛,在住院期间法喜地诵念《转法轮经》。他们与一般的病患不同,因为他们通过诵经念佛,让心一直法喜充满,虽然身体疼痛,心却透明清净,让善道之路变得更加美丽。无论他们何时离去,色身庄严安详,不会患得患失,因为该色身只是暂时用来修功德波罗蜜而已。

具足福报的人才有缘来此诵念《转法轮经》,这些功德利益将回向给往生的亲人,若他们正在受苦,就愿他们远离苦;若他们正在享受快乐,就愿他们越来越快乐。身处恶道者痛苦万分,得离苦实在不简单。这些人不仅失去了累积波罗蜜的机缘,也没有机会接受回向的功德。

若心依然粗糙,是因为它牵挂着工作,想一下子让心细腻很难。但可以循序渐进地改善,通过诵经不断地磨炼它。一边诵念经文,一边净化心灵,时机成熟自然就会实现。虔诚诵经者,将具足证入佛法之因缘,愿每个人都能实现,因为这不是一篇简单的经文。

我们听见法师诵经,或许有的法师还没有明白其中的意义。但若不断地诵念,总有一天心会开悟。刚开始诵念时,心可能会很粗糙,但诵念多了之后,心会越来越有力量。重要的是,诵念《转法轮经》,会让一切都变得美好。

希望全世界每个人都可以将诵经的功德分享给自己的亲朋好友!大家一定要加油!每天实践修行、同登彼岸!

Dhammacakkappavaḍḍana Sutta (all)

in original Pali with translations

中英對照轉法輪經

Evaṃ me sutaṃ, Ekaṃ samayaṃ Bhagavā Bārāṇasiyaṃ viharati isipatane migadāye. Tatra khoBhagavā pañcavaggiye bhikkhū āmantesi

I (Ānanda Bhikkhu) have heard that once the Buddha was at the Isipatana Deer Park near the City of Benares, and gave a sermon to a group of five ascetics.

如是我聞:一時,世尊住波羅奈城鹿野苑。爾時,世尊告五比丘言:

Dveme, bhikkhave, antā pabbajitena na sevitabbā

There are two extreme paths that those seeking Enlightenment should stay away from.

“比丘出家者,世有二邊不得親近。

Yo cāyaṃ kāmesu kāmasukhallikānuyogo Hīno gammo pothujjaniko anariyo anatthasañhito,

One is the path of indulgence in material-based, sensual pleasure. Such engagement fuels worldly desires, induces attachment, and pollutes the mind. It is harmful, useless, and thus not the way of the Enlightened.

一者貪著凡夫下劣俗法及耽樂淫欲。

Yo cāyaṃ attakilamathānuyogo dukkho anariyo anatthasañhito.

Another is the path of self-mortification. Such is afflicting pain upon oneself. It is harmful and useless for defeating the enemies within (“Kilesa” or defilements).

二者自苦己身造諸過失,非賢聖求法。”

The Middle Way中道

Ete te, bhikkhave, ubho ante anupagamma Majjhimā paṭipadā tathāgatena abhisambuddhā Cakkhukaraṇī ñāṇakaraṇī Upasamāya abhiññāya sambodhāya nibbānāya saṃvattati

Steer clear of these two paths. Instead, follow the Middle Way in which the Buddha discovered through Enlightened wisdom for it leads to victory over the devils within, the end of ignorance, and complete freedom from suffering.

“比丘們,捨此二邊,便得中道。生眼智明覺。成等正覺,寂靜涅槃。

Katamā ca sā, bhikkhave, majjhimā paṭipadā Tathāgatena abhisambuddhā Cakkhukaraṇī ñāṇakaraṇī Upasamāya abhiññāya sambodhāya nibbānāya saṃvattati

What then is the Middle Way that the Buddha discovered? It is the path that activates inner vision, leading to Enlightened wisdom, total awakening, and triumph over Kilesa the inner foes.

何為中道。生眼智明覺。成等正覺,寂靜涅槃。

The Noble Eightfold Path八正道

Ayameva ariyo aṭṭhaṅgiko maggo, Seyyathidaṃsammādiṭṭhi Sammāsaṅkappo Sammāvācā Sammākammanto Sammāājīvo Sammāvāyāmo Sammāsati Sammāsamādhi.

The Middle Way involves practicing the Noble Eightfold Path, which comprises having the right views, right thoughts, right speeches, right actions, right livelihoods, right efforts, right mindfulness, and right concentration.

所謂八正道:正見、正思、正語、正業、正命、正精進、正念、正定。

Ayaṃ kho sā, bhikkhave, majjhimā paṭipadā tathāgatena abhisambuddhā Cakkhukaraṇī ñāṇakaraṇī Upasamāya abhiññāya sambodhāya nibbānāya saṃvattati.

Such is the Middle Way in which the Buddha discovered through Enlightened wisdom. It activates inner vision, leading to the supreme knowledge for complete Enlightenment.

是为中道。生眼智明觉。成等正觉,寂静涅槃。

O monks, since I have already achieved complete knowledge and vision of the Four Noble Truths as they are in their three phrases and twelve aspects (Saccañāṅa, Kiccañāṅa, Katañāṅa), I can rightfully declare that I have achieved full Enlightenment that no human beings, Mara, Brahmaloka deities and other celestial beings have ever attained before.

比丘們,我自修習此四聖諦三轉十二行。即生淨眼智明覺。爾時,能超越諸梵天、摩羅、沙門、婆羅門,世間人。證得解脫。出離顛倒。證得無上智。

Ñāṇañca pana me dassanaṃ udapādi

Akuppā me vimutti, Ayamantimā jāti, Natthidāni punabbhavo ti.

Supreme knowledge and inner vision arose within me. My victory over Kilesa the inner enemies is for good. This current lifetime is my last. I am no longer subject to rebirth.

今我智見已生:“我已證之解脫不動搖。我生已盡,不受後有。”

Idamavoca Bhagavā, Attamanā pañcavaggiyā bhikkhū Bhagavato bhāsitaṃ abhinanduṃ

All the five ascetics were delighted and enthralled by the Buddha’s words of wisdom.

此為世尊所說。五比丘聞世尊所言,心生法喜。

Imasmiñca pana veyyākaraṇasmiṃ bhaññamāne Āyasmato koṇḍaññassa virajaṃ vītamalaṃ dhammacakkhuṃ udapādi

Yaṃ kiñci samudayadhammaṃ, sabban taṃ nirodhadhammanti.

After the Buddha said “Whatever is subject to origination is also subject to cessation,” ascetic Kondhañña was able to see the truth of this statement and achieved the first level of Enlightenment (Sotāpanna).

Pavattite ca Bhagavatā dhammacakke Bhummā devā saddamanussāvesuṃ

They were joyfully talking about the Buddha having proclaimed his Dhamma for the first time at the Isipatana Deer Park near the City of Benares. Except for the Buddha, no human being or celestial being could have given the sermon that got the wheel of Dhamma rolling.

“仁者當知,世尊於波羅奈城鹿野苑,三轉十二行無上法輪,非諸梵天、摩羅、沙門、婆羅門,世間人所能轉。”

聞化樂天呼聲,他化自在天亦同發聲言,輾轉相告

Paranimmitavasavattīnaṃ devānaṃ saddaṃ sutvā,

Brahmakāyikā devā saddamanussāvesuṃ

Upon hearing the sound of happy cheers from the Paranimmitavasavattī deities, the deities in Brahmaloka reacted in immense joy.

聞他化自在天呼聲,諸梵天亦同發聲言,輾轉相告:

Etaṃ Bhagavatā Bārāṇasiyaṃ isipatane migadāye anuttaraṃ dhammacakkaṃ pavattitaṃ, Appaṭivattiyaṃ samaṇena vā brāhmaṇena vā devena vā mārena vā brahmunā vā kenaci vā lokasminti.

The Brahmaloka deities were talking about the Buddha having proclaimed his Dhamma for the first time at the Isipatana Deer Park near the City of Benares. Except for the Buddha, no human being or celestial being could have given the sermon that got the wheel of Dhamma rolling.

“仁者當知,世尊於波羅奈城鹿野苑,三轉十二行無上法輪,非諸梵天、摩羅、沙門、婆羅門,世間人所能轉。”

Itiha tena khaṇena tena muhuttena Yāva brahmalokā saddo abbhuggacchi.

For a moment, the happy cheers were heard through Brahmaloka.

爾時,一念傾須臾間,輾轉相告呼聲響徹梵天。

Ayañca dasasahassilokadhātu Saṅkampi sampakampi sampavedhi,

Even 10,000 galaxies trembled in acknowledgement.

十千宇宙顫抖、搖晃、震動,

Appamāṇo ca oḷāro obhāso loke pāturahosi Atikkammeva devānaṃ devānubhāvaṃ.

Light of unparalleled brightness enveloped the entire world, outshining the aura of all deities.

一道無量光現諸宇宙間,勝過天神之威德光。

Atha kho Bhagavā udānaṃ udānesi

“Aññāsi vata, bho, Koṇḍañño, Aññāsi vata, bho, Koṇḍaññoti!

The Buddha then said “Kondhañña is now a Knower. Kondhañña is now a Knower.”

爾時,世尊宏聲宣告:“喬陳如悟了!喬陳如悟了!”

Iti hidaṃ āyasmato Koṇḍaññassa ‘Aññākoṇḍañño’ tveva nāmaṃ ahosīti.

Hence, ascetic Kondhañña was given the name Aññā Kondhañña Bhikkhu or Kondañña the Knower.

故尊者喬陳如得名“阿若喬陳如”(覺悟的喬陳如)。

以虔诚清净的心发出的诵经声音,将会跟大家的心的力量相互融合,形成清净能量。无限地散发,消除环境中的污垢(烦恼),减除苦、悲、病、危、恶等。每当我们诵经,心就被净化清净,功德就生于自身。生生世世因被烦恼操控而身口意造恶业,功德会使业障被净化,从重变轻,轻就灭尽,混浊的心就变清净明亮。
