如何看待佛牙的真伪; 百度百科

佛牙真伪,已有明确界线。界线的一侧是两颗释迦牟尼佛火化后遗留下来的真身舍利。确切的说,

一颗是斯里兰卡康堤佛牙寺内供奉的 [锡兰佛牙];

另一颗是中国北京西山灵光寺佛牙塔内供奉的 [法献佛牙]。

其余所有[佛牙]都在界线上的另一侧。它们都是佛牙舍利的替代品、复制品,而非释迦牟尼佛的真身牙舍利。

我们应如何对待这些佛牙替代品和复制品呢?

(1)佛经上说,见佛舍利如见佛。据此推知见到佛牙舍利的代用品,也要像对待佛陀真身牙舍利那样恭敬礼拜。这有如以金、银、铜、木纸、泥各种材质制作的佛像都应视作佛陀本身而不可有些许轻慢。

(2)历朝佛牙都曾显赫一时,为帝王将相、高僧大德所重。其本身而及供养之物,不仅有特殊的宗教意义,亦因珍贵文物的属性而具重要历史价值和文物价值。凡此种佛牙出现,都要受到妥善保护,不应以佛牙真伪为由随便处置。

总之,无论何处发现有所谓出土佛牙者,佛教界和有关方面切勿以发现释迦牟尼佛真身牙舍利作宣传,只可以佛牙影骨或复制品称之。

只要不以真身舍利惑众,都可供养礼拜,都可以赞佛功德。退而言之,作为佛教徒,在真伪、实幻、空有等问题上应以佛陀精神为本,不必过于执著。

Star Ruby, Sri Lanka, 星光红宝石

Sri Lanka, Star Ruby 7.05cts

SRI LANKA-Star Rubies 斯里兰卡红宝星石

Star Rubies are beautiful gemstones that display a six-ray star that seems to glide magically across the surface of the gem when the latter is moved. This six-ray star is caused due to an optical phenomena known as “Asterism“. The term “Asterism” is derived from the Greek word “aster”, which means star, so asterism is commonly referred to as “star” or “star-effect”. In simple words, asterism is a star-shaped light effect across the surface of gems.

紅寶石屬剛玉硬度九,僅次於鑽石的珍貴寶石,這顆纯天然通透的斯里兰卡紅星寶石,沒有二度激燒等優化處理,是可愛高貴的收藏。星光現象的產生,是由於寶石內針狀金紅石內含物, 按照三方晶系的晶形生長.當其切磨成凸面寶石時,可在點光源下看到呈六線的交叉星芒, 星芒會隨著觀看的角度不同而移動,但是如果注意觀察,單條星茫光不論如何移動,星茫光的方向都是一致的,如此可印證此星光是由其內部結構所產生此星石,星光茫清楚,星茫光無斷裂,還有寶石本體的顏色純淨亮麗。

The Tooth Relic is house in this golden castet placed securely in the inner chamber of the Dalada Maligawa.

The most precious Relic – 珍贵的佛牙舍利

Sri Dalada – the Sacred Tooth Relic – now housed in the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy, Sri Lanka’s hill capital is the most venerated object by millions of Buddhists throughout the world.

In the ninth year (312 A.D.) of the reign of the Anuradhapura King Sirimeghavanna (303-331 A.D.). The Tooth Relic was brought by a princess disguised as a Brahmin lady, Princess Hemamala, the daughter of King Guhaseeva of Dantpura (Orissa) was accompanied by Prince Danta, his son-in-law. The King received the Relic with honour, kept it in a shrine within the Royal Palace and held an annual festival at which it was taken in procession to the Abhyagiri Vihara and exhibited to the people.

Foreign invasions and civil war disturbed the peace in the country from time to time and often resulted in the destruction of temples. The monks, however, ensured the protection of the Tooth Relic by taking it away from the capital and hiding it in various places. The Relic was brought back when peace dawned.

Gemstone Sri Lanka Cat's eye

Cats Eye or Lehsunia is the stone of planet Ketu, the Dragon’s Tail. Ketu is the trunk part of the planet “Rahu”. In Vedic Astrology, Rahu is said to be a shadow planet. He is the son of “Sinhika” the daughter of “Hirnyakashayp”.As per Hindu Mythology, at the time of “Sagar Manthan”, the devil “Rahu” managed to drink the immortal fluid “Amrit” along with holy angels “Devtas”. Lord Vishnu became angry and cut his head using his “Sudarshan Chakra”. But as Rahu managed to drink “Amrit”, he could not die. As the result the head and the trunk of his body were still alive. Afterwards, these two parts of his body became the shadow planet by the name of “RAHU” and “KETU”.
