问:请上师讲述〈古鲁古里佛母修法简轨〉中,〈发菩提心偈〉之「清净施等我誓作」的含意。
答:它的意思是要下决心实践菩萨道之六度万行的修持。
This means to engage in the practice of “菩萨道之六度万行”.

问:古鲁古里佛母与二十一度母中之增威权度母(红度母),是否是同尊?因为有些文献中是说一样,为度母所化现。
答:我不晓得。我只知道古鲁古里佛母是观世音菩萨的化身。我记得有些网站说她是二十一度母之一。
I don't know. I know only that Kurukula is a transformation of Guan Yin. I remember that some ?
websites said she is one of the 21 Taras.

问:上师曾教导我们「古鲁古里佛母手印」,不知: (1)此手印有何作用? (2)另何时才需要结印呢?诵咒时?还是观想时?
答:(1)使得身体(的动作)专注于古鲁古里佛母。(2)任何一时都可以。一般上是在修持之始。一阵子后你就散印,以便专注于持念或观想。
To keep the body (activities) concentrated on Kurukulla. Either time is fine. Usually at the beginning
of the practice. After a while you may release the mudra and concentrate on the repetition or the
visualization.

问:古鲁古里佛母之种子字「啥」(Hrih),读音是「悉」吗?
答:陈上师之读音似「谢」,并且他把它写为「啥」。而在此咒语中,他则读为「叶」。
It is pronounced like“谢 ”by Guru Chen. And he wrote it as “啥”. In the mantra he pronounced it
as
“叶”。

问:佛母咒轮是逆时钟方向转吗?上回我附上之咒轮是向左转的(逆),如「绿度母咒轮」一般。
答:一般上,咒轮是顺时钟方向转(右旋)。但是在护法的咒时或当咒语是被用来做救渡工作时,它也可逆时钟方向转动(左旋),以扭转不利的情况。
Usually mantra wheels turn clockwise. But in case of Dharma protectors' or when the mantra is used
to achieve some salvation activities, then it could turn counter-clockwise to counter the adverse
conditions.

问:何谓三红法口诀?
答:怀法当用鱼,一也;当用红色,二也;当如钩,三也。
Red in color, hook as shape and 腥味(鱼).

问:除了专依据〈古鲁古里佛母证契仪轨〉修习外,平时做功课持诵古鲁古里佛母心咒,是否要观想?若要,是观想古鲁古里佛母法像于行者前虚空上,或观想佛母红色种子字『啥』于空中,放射无量红光
明,普照一切众生? 
答:你可以不用观想。
如果你要加入观想的话,你可以观想古鲁古里佛母在你(行者)面前上方的虚空;你也可以观想种子字(啥)在你的心轮,放出红光普照一切有情。
You can do without visualization.
If you want to add visualization, you can visualize Kurukula as in the space above and in front of
you. Also, you can visualize that the seed word is in your heart chakra and radiating red light to
all beings.

问:『观想古鲁古里佛母如彩虹般安住行者前面上方虚空之中,与上师无二无别的。』此处之无二无别,即是指上师与佛母是一体,对吗?而如此描述,是有何作用?
答:虽然表相是古鲁古里佛母,然而其实质则与上师无别。
The appearance is Kurukulla but the essence is no different from Guru.
