An Explanation of the Dudjom Dharma Flag

Discipline comes first. So just as the earth is said to be the support for all qualities, the base of the design represents ethical discipline, which is signified externally by the the vows of individual liberation.  The lotus flower with its fruit in the middle of the design signifies the bodhisattva vehicle together with the result of this path. Just as lotus flowers grow out of mud without being stained by it, bodhicitta means remaining in samsara yet being unaffected by its faults.  The golden vajra at the top of the design symbolizes Secret Mantra Vajrayana.  This is the quintessence of the Perfect Buddha’s wisdom speech, like pure refined gold – the vehicle of Secret Awareness-Holding Mantra.  Furthermore the vajra signifies the dharmakāya nature of wisdom mind, which is unchanging and characterized by the seven aspects of indestructibility.  The vajra also symbolizes wisdom speech, training disciples through the lotus eyes of sambhogakāya, which are said to gaze upon all
beings with compassion.  The lotus symbolizes nirmanakāya, pristinely blooming and untarnished by faults and defects.   Similarly the base, like a throne, symbolizes the Dharma King Trisong Detsen.  The lotus symbolizes the great Khenpo Bodhisattva, and the vajra symbolizes the Lake-Born Vajra, Guru Rinpoche.  So they represent the three: Khenpo Shantarakshita, Padmasambhava and King Trisong Detsen. The radiance of five-colored lights symbolizes the five paths, the five kāyas, and the five wisdoms.  From within the lotus, which is shaped like a crown, the encircling light radiance symbolizes the three vehicles spreading everywhere.  This also signifies the precious teachings of the Buddha, carried by the prayers of these three peerless masters – Khenpo Shantarakshita, Padmasambhava and King Trisong Deutsen, who are worthy to be placed upon the crown of our heads – spreading everywhere and leading all beings to the path of liberation.


                    敦珠法徽之解释

  首先,佛说“戒律犹如地基,为一切功德之基础”,下方法徽之基代表外别解脱戒。中间莲花及果实代表内菩萨乘之地道果,犹如莲花出淤泥而不染,菩萨虽于轮回中而无轮回过患。上面金色金刚杵:代表密咒金刚乘,此乃正等正觉佛所传教法之精髓,犹如纯金一般之秘密持明密咒乘。
  另外,亦可将金刚杵解释为不坏七法之不动自性意法身及如佛说“大悲眼观视有情”,象征报身佛以莲花眼调伏众生。
  莲花无过失之垢染洁净出生,犹如化身佛。此外,下基宝座可表法王赤松德真;莲花可表寂护论师;金刚杵可表海生金刚莲师等三位堪布、阿阇梨、法王。五色光芒表五道、五身、五智。莲帽界代表三乘之外围,光芒照彻十方。此帽能承载堪布、阿阇梨、法王三者无与伦比之发心所引生之珍贵佛法,令其弘扬诸方;象征引导一切众生至解脱道。
