问:在《药师如来证契仪轨》之〈五、供奉〉中:『一切圣众放五色光(蓝、白、黄、红、绿)充遍法界,加持一切众生。然后,药师琉璃光如来以外之一切圣众皆化光进入药师琉璃光如来心中』。

1﹑ 一切圣众放五色光充遍法界,是从心轮,还是全身?
2﹑ 另一切圣众化光进入药师琉璃光如来心中,是何种颜色的光呢?
3﹑ 所有光是否是从药师如来头顶进入至心轮呢,还是直接进入心中?

答:1﹑Either way is fine.
  任何一种都可以。
  2﹑You can think of different holy beings transforming into different colors of lights or all holy beings tranforming into 5- color lights. The main point is that five colors represent five wisdoms, five elements, five classes of Buddhas families, etc. So all good qualities and pure qualities of the Dharmadhatu merge into Medicine Guru Buddha.
  你可以观想不同圣众化为不同颜色的光,或者一切圣众化为五色光。主要的是五色代表着五智(法界体性智、大圆镜智、平等性智、妙观察智、成所作智),五大(金、木、水、火、土),五方佛(毗庐遮那佛、不动佛、宝生佛、阿弥陀佛、不空成就佛)等等。所以法界中一切好的及清净的性质融入药师佛。
  3﹑Gathered from all directions into the heart chakra. Only when there is some holy being on top then you need to think that it came down through the top of the head.
  来自所有方向的光集中,直接进入心轮。只有当本尊顶上另有圣尊,才需要观想光从头顶降下。

问:《仪轨》中之〈七、成就〉:『在一切众生经药师琉璃光如来甘露加持而回归本净,全都化光融成无限的天蓝色光明。药师琉璃光如来渡生圆满,亦化光融入本净之光明中。全法界成为无限无分的一体』。

1﹑一切众生也是包括行者在内?
2﹑全都化光是指一切众生化为白光,或是蓝光,抑或清净光明?
3﹑药师如来是否是化蓝光融入本净之光明中?

答:1﹑Of course.
  当然。
  2﹑Into the sky-blue light.
  化为天蓝色光。
  3﹑Sure. All join in the same sky-blue light.
  正确。所有都化为天蓝色光。

问:《仪轨》中之〈十、相即〉:『药师琉璃光如来与众生交融于本净光明中;圣凡之名相区分渐渐消逝』。其意思是药师佛与众生都融于本净光明中不见了,全法界是呈现无边际之蓝色光明?然后以药师佛化现为行者之相,也是说行者即为药师佛,行十二大愿教化及救渡诸有情于世间?
答:The self of the practitioner is no longer there. Medicine Guru Buddha, in order to help beings in this world, appear in the form of the practitioner to carry out the salvation activities.
行者之自我已不复存在。药师佛为了救渡此世间的众生,即现行者之相,展开教化之工作。

问:在《仪轨》之〈三、整体〉中,观想药师七佛的形相,是否是与〈七、成就〉中的药师琉璃光如来的形相一样,都是蓝色之虹光身?或是以〈药师佛圣像〉,还是以密宗唐卡中药师佛,做为观想之用?而药师七佛是观想成七尊不同的身色、手印的药师佛?还是同一形式的药师佛,如《药师法门常课简轨》般?
答:Actually either way is fine. Therefore it was not spelled out clearly.
确实上任何一种都可以。所以没有明确的标明。

问:此《药师如来证契仪轨》之〈七、成就〉中,在观想蓝色光明中,忽然炳现羯摩杵,杵上现八狮子座,再渐次于座上现莲、日垫、月垫。而在《阿弥陀佛证契仪轨》中,则为现莲、月垫、日垫。是否是一样的含意?
答:According to Guru Chen’s teachings, all Buddhas have sun cushion and moon cushion because they have both wisdom and compassion. But in some cases sun appears and moon is under the sun, and in other cases, moon appears and sun is under the moon. So in reality they have both wisdom (sun) and compassion (moon). But they may appear to emphasize sun aspect or moon aspect.
根据陈上师的教导,所有的佛都有日轮 (垫)与月轮(垫),因为佛都兼拥智慧与慈悲。但是有时候日轮显而月轮在下;也有时月轮显而日轮在下。事实上一切佛都兼有智慧(日)与慈悲(月),但也可显示强调智慧或慈悲的特质。

问:在〈八、转咒〉中, 咒语及咒轮停止后,此时药师佛心轮之莲、日垫、月垫及吽字,是否也跟着消失不见了?接着再修〈 九、一气〉 呢?
答:No. It just said it stopped. It did not say that it disappeared.
不是。《仪轨》只是说它停止,并没有说它们消失了。

问:若果修习者在〈三、整体〉中,把药师七佛观想成七尊同样形相的药师佛,如〈药师佛圣像〉的,还是如藏传唐卡中药师佛蓝色的虹光身像,任选一种,应该可以是不是?
答:Yes. Better to use the holy image of Medicine Guru Buddha. But visualize it as blue rainbow-like body.
是。最好是用〈药师佛圣像〉。但是观想药师佛为蓝色之虹光身。

问:上师,在〈七、成就〉中,则必须观想药师琉璃光如来成蓝色之虹光身,所以不用〈药师佛圣像〉做观想,才比较符合仪轨,是吗?
答:Shape is as the holy image of Medicine Guru Buddha, but its substance is blue rainbow-like. How come you stick to the form as the holy image of Medicine Guru Buddha that it has to be not like rainbow? It can very well be of that shape and still rainbow-like.
形状是如〈药师佛圣像〉,但其性质是如蓝色之彩虹般。你何以执着于形相如〈药师佛圣像〉而一定不是如彩虹般的呢?它可以正是那样的形状(药师佛圣像)并且是如彩虹般。

问:虹光身是指身体是光明的、很明显,但没有实质,是透明的,与彩虹一样?
答:Yes.
  对。

问:对于两个不同的仪轨--《药师法门常课简轨》及《药师如来证契仪轨》,两者该如何修习?请上师说明。
答:Sadhana of Medicine Guru Buddha is more for the sutrayana practitioners. Medicine Guru Buddha unification Sadhana is for tantric practitioners. People can choose one for regular daily practice, or practice them alternatively.
《药师法门常课简轨》是倾向于供显教行者修习。而《药师如来证契仪轨》则是为密乘行者而设。修习者可以任选其中一种做为日常的修持,或者两者轮修。
