Geshe Gyalten Teaching of The Six Yogas of Naropa – Tummo

GEshe Gyalten

Within the secret treasure house of highest yoga tantra instruction, the Six Yogas of Naropa, have long been held most dear to the heart of great yogis and yoginis. The Six Yogas of Naropa are one of the most highly regarded teachings in Vajrayana Buddhism.

These extraordinary meditation techniques – the Yogas of Tummo, Illusory Body, Bardo, Clear Light, Dreams, and Phowa – were transmitted in great secrecy for many generations. They are the crystal-clear basis for developing the body, speech and mind of a Buddha.

Tummo, the Yoga of Inner Fire, is lam kyi mag-do, “the foundation stone of the path”. It is fundamental to all the completion stage practices of tantra. The practice of Tummo causes all the vital energies within our body to enter, stabilze and absorb in the central channel of our subtle nervous system.

While providing teachings on the Six Yogas, this teaching will focus on both the teaching and practice of Tummo. This will be a rare and in-depth teaching and meditation opportunity for us to gain a deeper and more hands-on understanding and experience of Tummo. This retreat welcomes both practitioners of Tummo and beginners.

For those who have received these teachings before, this is an opportunity to extend and deepen your practice of the Six Yogas, Tummo in particular. For those new to the teaching, this is a rare chance to learn about these practices with a great teacher and setting.

显密文教基金会非常荣幸的邀请到尊贵卻殿仁波切心子, 慈田格西, 莅临中心给予那若六法的系列教授。那若六法是西藏佛教的著名无上瑜伽密续口授传承之一。此法是由公元十一世纪的印度大成就者谛洛巴及那洛巴汲取无上瑜伽父母二续的扼要,并透过二师本身的实修证量糅合而成的一套完整密续修法次第。

所谓六法就是: 拙火, 中有, 幻身, 光明, 破瓦, 睡梦

这一系列的修法是以脉, 风, 明点的瑜伽修法, 强令二现分别粗识停灭, 使最细品根本心显露从而现证空性。 这种修法称为方便道, 而有别于大圆满, 光明大手印等一类直观心性的解脱道。 著名的密集, 胜乐轮, 喜金刚, 时轮, 大威德, 大幻化等均属于方便道的教规。 事实上, 无上瑜伽的方便道正是西藏佛教不同于汉传佛教及南传佛教的最大特色。 虽然这些密续教授的重点各有不同, 但是那洛六法的架构却把这些密续教授有条不紊的归纳成一种互为助伴,前后呼应的道次第。 所以深受古今印藏行者推崇, 那洛巴尊者的弟子妮古玛后来更开出另一系六法传承,此规经大瑜伽士谵波那佐传至西藏后,便出现了与玛尔巴译师传出的达波噶举齐名于世的香巴噶举传承。 此派后为西藏各派吸纳, 特于格鲁一派与香巴噶举的法缘极深, 历代格鲁大德常有撰文疏释香巴噶举传承教授。

本次教授以拙火的修持为主。在西藏, 行者称拙火为道之基石, 此即指它是证取幻身,光明等证德之关键扼要。 事实上拙火是一切密续圆满次第之前导。 要言之, 欲得证悟我们需要以拙火的修持令一切风息命力入, 住, 融于中脉, 由此而引发俱生大乐之证德。

此大乐非仅是一般喜悦心态, 而是一种超越庸常妄想之甚深证境, 进而与证空之慧和合, 并最终能幻身与胜义光明相运, 复究竟达至圆满正觉。慈田格西为尊贵卻殿仁波切心子, 其教授风格明了,直接, 完整的讲解那若六法修持。格西拉专长于佛学理论, 实修, 西藏医药和瑜伽,可以熟练的用西藏文, 英文, 印度文,和中文教授佛法, 实为珍贵。

卻殿仁波切

卻殿仁波切是当今格鲁大德, 戒律精严, 在色拉寺被称为持毘奈耶者,因為他懂得毘奈耶的所有細節。從幼年開始,仁波切學習的主要目標就是能夠將所學運用於實修,因此他專注於經典的內涵。十歲左右,就有很強烈的意願要實修所學。他從未穿過祖古的特別服飾,雖然出身官宦之家,他在色拉寺也沒有屬於自己的僧院、家族。他混在一般的僧眾之中,每個人都喜歡他。仁波切主要的上師是帕繃喀仁波切、赤絳仁波切和達賴喇嘛尊者。
