主七和尚:莊嚴寺新任方丈 法曜法師

佛說般舟三昧經云:「立一念信是法隨所聞,念其方宜一念,斷諸想……」
念佛三昧是先從相信心外有佛,而後精進用功。時時念佛,念到心沒雜念與煩惱時,自能與佛感應道交;那時就算不求阿彌陀佛接引,也會身置淨土世界,去體驗極樂世界的清淨莊嚴。
今年佛七,將由方丈法曜法師主持,法會中方丈將開示淨土寶典《般舟三昧經》及《觀無量壽經》,圓滿日將邀請本會教授法師明光法師領眾施放三時繫念一堂。
念佛功德無量無邊,為利法會大眾業障、病障消除,在世者福慧增長、過往者蓮品高昇。法會期間敬設長生祿位及往生蓮位,費用隨喜。不克前來參加欲隨喜功德或供齋,廣求福田者,歡迎將支票寄至莊嚴寺。支票抬頭請開B.A.U.S 並請註明用途。
法曜法師於斯里蘭卡出家至今20年,有系統的接受巴利佛教正規教育,獲得學士及碩士學位後,負笈英國,在著名的巴利佛教學者Rupert Gethin指導下攻讀,獲得博士學位。研究範圍涵蓋阿毗達磨 、唯識、禪法及早期大乘佛教。法師求學不倦,能掌握巴利、梵、漢、英、藏、日、德、法語言,除了以各種語言深入各國藏經、博覽中外佛學研究著作,也參訪世界各國之道場,修習禪法。
