「佛教儀式婚禮香讚」及「佛教儀式婚禮讚」
The Incense Chant for a Buddhist Wedding Ceremony and a Buddhist Wedding Song

編辑室

一九六九年元旦,上人最早的美國弟子易象乾與劉瑤仙兩位居士在舊金山金山禪寺舉行佛教婚禮。上人親為主婚之外,又親書「佛教儀式婚禮香讚」、「佛教儀式婚禮讚」及法器打法。
筵席上上人指示以後弟子們結婚時亦可照用。事隔多年,本刊徵得易氏夫婦同意特此刊出,以廣流傳。

Editor’s Note:
On New Year’s Day, 1969, the Venerable Mater’s two earliest lay disciples, Ron Epstein and Yao Hsien Liu held their Buddhist wedding ceremony at San Francisco’s Gold Mountain Dhyana Monastery. The Venerable Master was the host of this wedding. Besides authoring a personal note of congratulations, the Venerable Master also composed the “Incense Chant for a Buddhist Wedding Ceremony’ and “The Buddhist Wedding Sing” and instructions for playing Dharma instruments.
During the banquet, the Venerable Master pointed out that these pieces may be circulated and used during other disciples’ nuptials. Although it has been many years since their matrimony, Vajra Bodhi Sea has now obtained the Epsteins’ permission to publish these compositions to share with our readers.

The Incense Chant for a Buddhist Wedding Ceremony

Incense burns in the jade Censer,
Their hair is braided together in the highest condition.
Mind to mind mutually reflects
The Receptive and the Creative,
The Jasper Immortals (Yao Hsien) assemble
With the Golden Mother.
One single thought of real devotion,
There is happiness and ling life forever!
Homage to the Bodhisattva Incense Cloud Canopy, Mahasattva.

南無增福壽菩薩摩訶薩

Buddhist Wedding Song

The dharmas by which the Buddha transforms
the world are boundless.
In the world or out of the world
he crosses-over great trichiliocosms.
Joy, even-mindedness, friendliness,
compassion, and merits accumulated,
He courses in faith and wisdom
bearing testimony to the Perfection
of the Enlightenment Essence.
All superior people of good
will act as His retinue.
Together in their hearts through respectful love
they tie together Conditions for a harmonious union.
May they be constant companions for a hundred years!
May their fortune be just as they wish
for myriads and myriads
Of years!
Homage to the Bodhisattva Who Increases Happiness and Long Life, Mahasattva.
Homage to the Bodhisattva Who Increases Happiness and Long Life, Mahasattva.
Homage to the Bodhisattva Who Increases Happiness and Long Life, Mahasattva.
