Chan Meditation and Acupuncture 5 day Acupuncture and Meditation training Level I

May 05, 2020 - May 10, 2020

Breath observation, body and mind (White-bone meditation, Asubha Meditation), has the ability to soothe worries, transform our body, and overturn the unhealthy body into a flourishing state.  The two powerful practices have been called “Two manna door“ in Buddhist history.

According to the teaching of Tawya Gaing, Breath observation runs through the White-bone meditation. It actually lays a solid foundation for the White-bone meditation. In turn, the White-bone meditation would help “smashes” hard stasis or biofouling that are difficult to clear, allowing the breath to “wash” the bones and reach a state of birth. Master Ditanliao passes the valuable healing experiences that has been acquired in his 20 years of ascetic practice to the students without reservation. The various breathing techniques taught In his meditation are highly practical. So that the students participating in meditation workshop can effectively transform their body, overcome the “five hindrances”, and further cut off “body erroneous views”.

观呼吸与身至念(白骨观、不净观),具调伏烦恼,改造色身,化腐朽为神奇的强大威力。这两个影响深远的修法,在佛教历史上被称作“二甘露门”。腿疼是假相,禅修期间老师督战打坐,引领降服腿疼的观想,实证”外现为腿疼,实为身邪见”的禅法。

森林派在修法上的第一位祖师是阿姜曼,阿姜曼尊者是佛陀时代的比丘(尊者因想成佛而轮回至今,因改变想法成就阿罗汉而解脱,详见《阿姜曼传》),森林派的修法不是来自经典注解(这些注解早就偏离佛陀原意),而是来自佛陀本人(阿姜曼尊者通过轮回而带下来)。森林派的观呼吸贯穿于白骨观、不净观,观呼吸为白骨观、不净观打下坚实基础,反过来,白骨观“击碎”难以疏通的硬块,使呼吸透骨透髓,不净观截住小腹下滑的精气并令之逆流,使呼吸几达气住脉停。老师每次禅修都将十九年来苦行实践中积累的可贵经验,毫不保留地传授给学员,所教导的种种观呼吸技巧、白骨观观想技巧、不净观观想技巧、针与禅、药与禅,灵活而实用,令参加禅修营的学员有效地调伏粗糙的色身,降服五盖,为更进一步断除“身邪见”打下坚实基础。

TEACHERS

Tan, the Teacher was born in a traditional Chinese Medicine – Xu family.The Xu Family needling method (acupuncture technic) has been recognized by the Nang Ping city as an Intangible Heritance Treasure. Tan is the 12 generation lineage inheritor. Immediately upon graduating from college, Tan was very attracted to the rich original ancient Buddhist teachings. He became a monk at Xiamen South Putuo Buddhist Temple. He studied in the Min Nan Buddhist College. He went through lots of hardships traveling via Philippines to Thailand where he followed the Forest Buddhist Tradition with (阿姜摩訶布瓦- Achaan Mahaa Boowe) Ajahn Chah Subhatto for 11 years. Subsequently, he continued practicing at Korean Snow Mountain Temple for the next 6 years. In addition to observations about the mind, he has a depth of experience in practicing White Skeleton Meditation. His 20 years of meditation practice brought him insights into the Chinese Medicine and needling art(acupuncture). With this advanced and highly developed awareness and awakening, Tan went on to resolve the thousand years’ old mystery of the primordial energy transforming itself into Qi, and how the Qi then would go on to influence the soul. The breath and White Skeleton make our mind overcome our pain and help us enter the state of tranquility. While our Qi channels are in the process of getting purified, our muscles begin to rejuvenate, areas of stagnations are eliminated and mind awareness begin to improve. As our energy channels become visible,observing our body is like reading Chinese medicine classic: Inner Canon of The Yellow Emperor (黄帝内经), and observing internal energy moving channel is like reading the book of “Treatise on Cold Damage Diseases” (伤寒论). As the science of life is revealed in Chinese medicine, our human body is naturally characterized and exhibited in the natural law of harmony.

昙谛了
1968年生,出生中医世家,市级非遗徐氏禅针第十二代传人。自小莫名地酷爱禅法,并自觉强烈的使命感。受到良好的高等教育。本计划往美国留学,因接触到佛陀原始教法,受内心不可抵御的强大力量驱使,舍弃世间一切,1995年毅然于厦门南普陀寺出家。在闽南佛学院学习《天台藏》,深入了解到《天台藏》中所记载的当年从印度传来的完整而丰富的佛陀原始教法(从安般念到狮子奋迅如来)后,按抑不住内心的激动,排除重重困难(当时出国门很难),绕道菲利滨,1997子身一人抵达泰国森林求法,在以苦行出名的隆魄督战下修行,经受了泰国森林头陀最严酷的洗礼和训练,修行“观受念处”时,不是思维辨识而是直面不可逃避的疼痛,直到通过观想,心超越疼痛,并将疼痛打得丢盔卸甲,色身翻转,可以自由出入止观才起座,打坐常常不以小时计而以天计。之后,行脚到泰国森林派各大德处修行,在泰国森林修习前后达十一年,受隆魄和国师阿姜摩诃波瓦影响甚大。完整地继承了呼吸观、白骨观与不净观三大观法并多有三观交融的原创,而在过去,这三个观法即使是有名的祖师像隆魄、国师等也只是教导其中一个或两个。其后,在韩国雪山,唐宋风格的加行精进禅院中继续精修六年,修行透彻到观心的佛陀原始教法,历十九年头陀生涯,于2014年秋回国,将佛陀原始教法、森林派凌厉禅风与禅医带回中土。

(在泰国森林修行时) (在韩国雪山修行时)

由于特殊的出生家庭和所受到的中医熏陶,整个修炼过程,经历过“一味苦行”,而最终否定“一味地蛮干”,修正为“苦行加技巧”,积极主动地将佛陀原始教法、禅宗与古老的中医有机地结合起来,进行长期的实验、探索与实证,独创了“炼精化气针法与药方”,解决了千百年来精化气、气化神的难题。将佛陀原始教法引入中医,以三大观打通经络,净化气脉,改造色身,当色身改造后,百脉畅通,觉知敏锐,就可以观察人体内景隧道,不仅回归中医发祥的起点,同时,也找到了解读中医经典最可信最权威的方式——内证,因为观人体内景就是在读身体这本《黄帝内经》,观内景隧道就是在读身体这本《伤寒论》,每门科学都有自己内在的特性和发展规律,中医更有自己“天人合一”的哲学思想和发展轨迹,南宋以后,中医一衰再衰,其内在原因就是道医分离——失去了内证。中医要复兴要发展,不通过内证是无法达到“天人合一”境界的。这就是后来的“禅医”,“禅医”恢复了禅法与中医的内在的深刻因缘,这恐怕也是十九年来在禅法有满满收获的原因。
2018于昆明卧云禅林创办禅医学院,禅医学院一年级学生就有针灸有效治愈乳癌患者的案例,2019年春节,迫于现实环境的巨大压力,“熊掌与鱼翅不可兼得”,不得不舍弃比丘戒,以老师身份继续为弘扬禅医做不懈的努力。
