Akshobhya Teachings and Empowerment



From June 23rd to 24th, 2017, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa gave a two-day teaching on dealing with disturbing emotions in relation to the Akshobhya practice. At the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the Gyalwang Karmapa greeted a variety of ordained and lay sangha, totalling as much as twenty five hundred attendees in the audience, with his wisdom and compassion. Over the course of this teaching, His Holiness shared with the audience his experience with the Akshobhya practice, from the inspiration he has found while reading the sutras on Buddha Akshobhya, to the benefit he has reaped from this practice. The teaching was concluded with the Akshobhya empowerment. At the end of this memorable last teaching for the Gyalwang Karmapa’s first visit to Canada, he noted his intent to return and answer unaddressed questions from the audience. At this instant, the theatre roared with applause, cheers, and filled with smiling faces. His Holiness also suggested performing a Long Life Prayer on his “official birthday” for the Very Venerable Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, which took place at Thrangu Monastery Canada from 8:00AM until 11:00AM this morning, June 26, 2017. Thus concluded His Holiness’ month-long tour across Canada. Both teachers and students alike, who have participated in any of these public events, have expressed the highest gratitude and appreciation. We hope the Gyalwang Karmapa will constantly remember his students in Canada, and return to guide us time after time after time. On the auspicious occasion of the precious Karmapa’s birth, may we wish all of our gurus dwell long in good health to see the teachings of Buddha flourish throughout space, and the end of suffering for all sentient beings.

尊聖的第十七世大寶法王於2017年6月23至24日給予了長達兩日的不動佛指引,教導了群眾如何面對煩惱和負面情緒。法王在伊莉莎白女王戲院,面臨高達由2500位來賓組成的四眾,鮮活地展現了他的慈悲與智慧。於此眾會,法王跟聽眾分享了他修持不動佛法門的經驗,由他從不動佛相關經典中體驗的感動,乃至法王親自修持不動佛法門後得到的利益。這個兩天長的活動最後以不動佛的灌頂法會畫下句點。活動接近尾聲之際,法王暗示將再次親臨加拿大回覆此次未有時間解答的觀眾提問。法王言畢,戲院及時掌聲如雷,歡笑不斷。同時法王也應許在他「官方生日」舉行長壽法會,祈願尊貴的勘千創古仁波切法體安康。此法會於今日,2017年6月26日,從上午8:00至11:00已圓滿落成。這便為大寶法王噶瑪巴長達一個月的首次加拿大弘法行落幕之際。所有出席此公眾活動的上師與弟子們無一不獲益,誠心感謝法王。我們都希望法王時常憶念住在加拿大的弟子們,並且一再、一再、一再地歸來引領我們。在噶瑪巴尊者誕辰之吉祥日,願我們尊貴的每一位上師皆福壽延綿,得以親見佛法昌興遍布虛空、眾生煩惱盡。
