法會時間:2009年3月6日~3月11日(藏曆一月十日至一月十五的神變節)。

法會地點:尼泊爾的柯槃寺。
  (柯槃寺是FPMT的根本母寺,由耶喜喇嘛及怙主梭巴仁波切所建立。)

活動內容:誦經、修法、辯經、開示、齋僧等諸多項目。
     誦經包括般若經論等;祈願文包括宗大師祈願文、八大祈願文等。

參贊截止日請於3月3日前將隨喜參贊的金額及迴向名單告知經續法林,以便彙集。(最遲3月5日截止)迴向名單最好是以閤家為單位。

 

簡介:柯槃寺每年在藏曆一月十日至一月十五的神變節期間,舉行祈願大法會。今年的祈願法會是在國曆3月6日~3月11日舉行。

柯槃寺每年在舉行這個祈願大法會之前,先向達賴喇嘛尊者報備,由達賴喇嘛尊者指派格魯派三大寺的高僧前往柯槃寺主法。通常是指派色拉寺的高僧主法,往年皆是由洛確仁波切主法。

在尼泊爾加德滿都地區的格魯派僧眾皆會參與祈願盛會,而且於藏曆一月十五的佛陀神變日,加德滿都地區各教派的高僧亦會參加,約有千位以上僧眾參加。

 

活動殊勝:藏傳佛教極重視佛陀的神變節,因為這段期間所作的任何善行,不論是修法、供養,其福德皆增長一億倍,所以祈願大法會是共植福田的最佳時節。

祈願法會於早上六點就開始,上午的活動稱為「倫梭」,意思是可以飲食,所以於誦經、修法中間可以享用早餐及午餐。下午的活動稱「甘梭」,意思是過午就不再吃東西,而於整個下午都在修法。所以這段期間的齋僧通常是指供養僧眾早、午餐。藏曆正月十五的神變節,加德滿都地區各教派的高僧亦會前往,約計有一千位以上的僧眾參加。

Only then it became known to the hundreds of monks, nuns and lay people devoted to Geshe Lama Konchog the extraordinary qualities of this modern-day Milarepa.

Our History 尼泊爾柯槃寺歷史

Just north of the ancient Buddhist town of Boudhanath is the Kopan hill (pictured left), rising up out of the terraced fields of the Kathmandu valley and visible for miles. Dominated by a magnificent Bodhi tree, it was once the home of the astrologer to the king of Nepal. It was to this hill that these lamas came with their first Western students in 1969.

Kopan Monastery had its beginnings in the Solu-khumbu region of the Himalayan mountains. In 1971 Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the reincarnation of the Lawudo Lama, a yogi of the tiny hamlet of Lawudo, fulfilled the promise of the previous Lawudo Lama to start a monastic school for the local children. The school was called called it Mount Everest Center. Twenty five monks moved down from the mountain to Kopan in 1971 - prompted by the harsh climate at an altitude of 4000 am, which made study barely possible in winter.

Now Kopan is a thriving monastery of 360 monks, mainly from Nepal and Tibet, and a spiritual oasis for hundreds of visitors yearly from around the world. Nearby is Khachoe Ghakyil Ling Nunnery, home to 380 nuns. Both the monastery and the nunnery are under the spiritual guidance of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and the care of the abbot, Khen Rinpoche Geshe Lhundrup Rigsel. And it is the wellspring of the FPMT, a network of some 140 centers and activities world-wide, themselves expressions of the Buddha activity of Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Monastic Life

Monks and nuns from the age of seven come from all over Nepal and the Himalayan countries such as Tibet, India, Bhutan, Sikkim, and even Mongolia to attend this Gelugpa monastery, one of the best in Kathmandu valley, to receive a classical monastic education.

The students receive extensive training traditional philosophical subjects as debate. A small tantric college under the supervision of teacher from Gyumed college in South India was established some years ago, where rituals subjects such as torma making, chanting, and ritual dance are taught and tantric texts are studied. Additionally the monks and nuns assemble twice a day for prayers dedicated to the well-being and happiness of all sentient beings.

A fully fledged geshe study program has been established. This enables the students to complete most of their philosophical studies at Kopan, before moving on the the Monastic Universities in South India for the continuation of their studies, and higher degrees.
The newly established Tantric colleges houses about 60 monks studying tantric rituals such as making sand mandala, making butterscultpure, arranging initiations and prayerceremonies. They also study the tantric texts in details and learn how to assist those wishing to do retreat.

Not all monks are interested in pursuing a scholastic career. After finishing grade ten in the monastery school, some of them continue their monastic life by offering service to the monastery in a variety of ways. Those who wish to dedicate their life to the pursuit of religious activities may do so under the guidance of qualified teachers and meditation masters.

Preserving the religious and cultural heritage of Tibet

The yearly cycle of ceremonies and rituals at Kopan includes the observance of the annual rains retreat during the summer months, and the observance of other monastic disciplines and rituals. In this way the tradition of the Buddhas teachings on monastic discipline (Vinaya) are upheld and preserved.

The commemoration of the Buddha's holy deeds through prayers and spiritual practice is performed on the respective days according to Tibetan calendar: The 10 Days of Miracles, Saka Dawa, Chokar Duchen, and Lha Bab Duchen.

Purification rituals mark the end of the Tibetan year, culminating in a day of prayers and ritual dances, while the negative actions of the year are symbolically burned in a huge bonfire. In December the anniversary of Lama Tsong Khapa, the founder of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism is commemorated with a procession of lights.

 

 

All facilities, board, and education at the monastery are totally free for all monks and nuns, to give an opportunity to all those who wish to follow the religious life. This is financed through the program of meditation courses for foreign visitors as well as through a sponsorship scheme in which people who are supportive of the goals of the monastery sponsor the living cost of a monk or nun.

Khachoe Ghakyil Ling - the Kopan Nunnery

In 1979 Lama Yeshe invited nuns to study at Kopan, an uncommon practice in Tibetan monasteries. There are now 320 nuns, most of whom are Tibetans living in their own monastery nearby, who participate fully with the monks' philosophical studies and debate as well as following their own practices.

An International Centre for Study and Meditation

From the very beginning, Kopan was conceived by Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche as a place of study and meditation for both the Himalayan sangha and for their many foreign students. In preserving this tradition to this day, Kopan has become a unique place, a meeting place between East and West, between religious and worldly life.

Kopan has truly been an oasis for the thousands of foreign visitors, who, tired of their materialism and hungry for something more, have made the place their home for weeks, months, even years. Regular meditation courses have been held at Kopan since Lama Zopa Rinpoche, one of the founders, gave his first public teachings at Kopan in 1971 to a group of twelve Westerners. The rest is legend. This intensive one month introduction to Buddhism became the model for the meditation courses now held throughout the year at Kopan.

The first 'One Month Meditation Course' was held at Kopan in 1971 .Since then up to two hundred students come every year to participate in the annual one month meditation course. Many more come for the seven and ten day courses during the rest of the year. These meditation courses throughout the year provide an opportunity to "taste the Dharma" and to facilitate reflection about living a meaningful life.

Kopan offers an extensive library with books in several languages as well as an audio and video library. Tibetan as well as Western sangha (monks and nuns) are available for private talks and advice.

Daily Dharma talks are offered when there are no courses scheduled.

Full board and accommodation is available to visitors throughout the year at a very reasonable cost. The income generated through this form an important part of the income of the monastery, and help in providing free facilities to all the monks and nuns.

From the beginning Kopan has managed to be many things to many people, sometimes uncomfortably for the traditionalists, but it always has been successfully blessed by the practice of the holy and ordinary beings who have lived or visited here.

We invite you to come and experience this special place in the foothills of the Himalayas.
