Adamantine Transcendent Wisdom (Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita)

Master Shen-Long, Adamantine Transcendent Wisdom (Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita)  金剛般若婆羅密, 2002. Ink and mixed media on xuan paper, 12 x 4.9 ft

Explanation by Master Shen-Long:

Adamantine means it can never be produced or annihilated, can never be destroyed. 

Transcendent Wisdom is using unsurpassed wisdom to awaken to become Buddha.

Therefore, unsurpassed wisdom is the original energy and ability (enlightenment power) possessed within every being.  Buddha is the fundamental essence of enlightenment power originally possessed within all beings.  Thus, to start one’s own nature wisdom, to restore the enlightenment power of one’s original nature, and then perfect the completion of leading to Buddhahood is known as “Adamantine Transcendent Wisdom (Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita)”. 

The art presented here demonstrates all being’s enlightenment power is a universal illumination, by means of unsurpassed wisdom perfectly completes the sphere of leading to Buddhahood. At that moment, Amitabha sends out an illuminating ray, penetrates the universe, the voice of Buddha is all over the cosmos, and immeasurable beings are all instantly awakened to the truth, satisfied with one’s lot and correct path, cultivating oneself diligently progressing in the good and eliminating the evil, never receding, until all is wholly complete and to everyone’s delight and satisfaction. 

神龍解:

金剛者即永無生滅,永不摧毀之意,般若婆羅密者乃以無上智慧覺悟成佛之謂。所以無上智慧即每位衆生本具的能量與能力(覺能)。而佛者即一切眾生本具之覺能本體。因此開發自性智慧,恢復本性覺能,進而完全成就佛道乃名之曰:金剛般若婆羅密。

茲畫面所呈現者乃吾人之覺能遍照法界,以無上智慧圓成佛道之境界。當下佛陀全身放光,穿透宇宙,迦陵仙音週遍十方,無量眾生悉皆剎那覺醒,安住正道,修行精進,永不退轉,一切圓滿,皆大歡喜是也。
