咒轮

In Tibetan Tantra it also depends on the deity practiced, some turns clockwise and some turns counter-clockwise.
在藏系的密续中也是依所修法的本尊而有的顺时钟向转,有的逆时钟向转。

In Buddhism, clockwise is the norm.
佛法中,顺时钟是通则。

But in doing salvation activities, in order to counter the hindrance, it can turn counter-clockwise. So in this case, Green Tara is mainly to help solve sentient beings' problems, so the wheel turns counter-clockwise.
然而在从事救渡的事业时,为了回遮障碍,是可以逆时钟转的。因此在目前这件事上,由于绿度母主要是要帮助众生解除困难,所以咒轮是逆时钟旋转。

You have many questions because you want to compare with many things. If you follow one thing at a time, then there is no problem.
你之所以会有这么多问题,是因为你要和许多事情一起比较。如果你一次只依循一件事,那么就没有问题了。


May all beings attain Enlightenment soon!

愿一切众生早日成佛!

尊贵的上师,

一般上,藏传之咒轮多是向左转,也即是逆时钟方向包括绿度母咒轮、大白伞盖佛母咒轮及药师佛咒轮。
而我们网页上之咒轮,大都是向右转的,即顺时钟方向。如中文版百字明咒轮、净土咒轮、龙王咒轮、上师心咒咒轮及药师佛咒轮,甚至包括了藏字之咒轮如:文殊证契仪轨、阿弥陀佛证契仪轨、白度母证契仪轨,还有最近上师敬绘之〈度母坛城〉,也是向右转(顺时钟)。

如今,惟独此〈绿度母修法〉中之咒轮,必须根据藏传的改为向左转,即逆时钟方向。是不是说咒轮向左或向右转都可以?请恕弟子愚昧,因弟子有些溷乱,请上师慈悲指点!

法安

弟子 敬行顶礼
