佛学讲座《佛说盂兰盆经》

授课法师: 释宽净

 
《佛说盂兰盆经》,又称盂兰经。内容记述佛陀之大弟子目连定中见母亲在饿鬼道受苦,悲痛万分,便祈请佛陀指点。佛陀示之于七月十五日广设种种供物饮食,斋僧济众,承仗佛力超度亡灵,目连遵佛旨意,母亲终于得脱。现在普遍流行于民间的盂兰盆会就是由此而来的。佛陀借这因缘开讲了本经,经中宣扬行孝之道,可算是佛门一大孝经。

The Ullambana Sutra

The Ullambana Sutra celebrates the virtues of filial piety, gratitude and compassion. It describes how Venerable Mahamaudgalyayana in his meditative state saw his late mother in great suffering in the hungry ghost realm. He could not bear to see his mother suffering as a hungry ghost and sought help from the Buddha. The Buddha instructed Mahamaudgalyayana to make offerings of food and other basic necessities to the virtuous assembly of the Sangha (monks) at the end of the rain retreat (15th day of the 7th month in the lunar calendar). The merits gained from this noble act of giving helped to liberate Mahamaudgalyayana’s mother from her suffering. This is the origin of the Ullambana festival.
