供灯和念佛:我对孩子的愧疚释怀了
我在2018年8月参加了菩提禅修的念佛班。在班上播放的开示,师父教导我们在农历7月这个重要的月份真诚地为往生的亲人或婴灵超度、点灯及念佛,祈求他们不再受苦,能往生极乐世界。

这让我想起20年前我做的堕胎手术。在怀孕期间,因为有出血的状况,医生检查的结果是这孩子可能有一些问题,建议把他拿掉。那时侯的我还没接触佛法,也不懂得因果或杀生等道理,所以就草率地结束了这小生命。之后,我也没把这件事情放在心上。

但这念佛班勾起了我对这孩子的亏欠和心酸,并对我之前草率的决定感到非常后悔。因此我很想弥补孩子,希望能为他做点事情。于是我立即为他点灯和念佛,也真诚地祈请佛菩萨加持他远离恐惧及怨恨。在课程第6天为子女念佛祈福时,我朦朦胧胧地看到一位小孩背着书包去上学的一幕,像是孩子已经投胎到好的人家了。这让我那愧疚、放不下的心灵得到了释怀。我相信他已获得佛菩萨的接引和护佑,他的未来一定是最光明吉祥的!

I attended the Bodhi Meditation Chanting Class in August 2018. In one of Grandmaster JinBodhi’s teachings, we were taught the importance of lighting lamps and chanting for our departed loved ones, including aborted babies, during the lunar month of July. This is to help them seek liberation and go to a better place. I was reminded of an abortion I had 20 years ago. During my pregnancy, complications developed and the doctor recommended that I go for an abortion. Since I was not acquainted with Buddhism back then, I made the hasty decision to end a young life and did not think much of it after that. However, this Chanting Class evoked my guilt and sorrow for the unborn child and I deeply regretted my hasty decision. Hence, I immediately lit a lamp for the unborn child and sincerely prayed to Buddha for blessings to rid him of any fear and resentment. On the 6th day of class when we were guided to chant for our children, a scene flashed before me. I saw a child carrying a school bag and heading to school; it seemed to indicate that my unborn child has been reincarnated into a good family. This brought great relief to me, and I firmly believe my unborn child has received Buddha’s blessings and a bright and good future await my child!
