印度 - 金刚菩提湿婆供品
India – Rudraksha of Lord Shiva Offering

公元(1419年 - 2019年) A.D. (1419 - 2019)

此类文物在古印度十四世纪只在皇宫贵族群在使用,比较珍贵,十九世纪以后比较流行于民间。金刚菩提子,是印度教中“湿婆神的眼泪(或者眼球)”,“湿婆”这个名字是在印度教时代出现的,他的原型一般被认为是吠陀时代的风暴之神鲁陀罗。湿婆,又译作“希瓦”,是仁慈的意思,象征着“昌盛”和“吉祥”,同时又象征着“毁灭”。佛教文献称他为大自在天,住色界之顶,为三千界之主。有地、水、火、风、空、日、月、祭祀八种化身,拥有毁灭和再生的力量。常常有人认为金刚菩提子有着无穷无尽的能量,在约600年前,已经在印度,印度尼西亚,尼泊尔的山区內生长。

此罕见的金刚菩提湿婆供品,源自于50年代南印度寺廟中供奉“希瓦”神枱上,后由印度苦行僧几经辗转半个世纪落入东南亚收藏家中,经过90年代再传入新加坡让另一位华人修行者中来供奉佛祖。

Such artifacts were used only among the nobles of the Imperial Palace during the 14th century in ancient India. They were considered quite precious and only became popular among the commoners after the 19th century. Rudraksha is the “tears of Shiva (or eyeballs)” in Hinduism. The name “Shiva” appeared during the Hindu era. His original form was generally considered to be the god of storm of the Vedic era. Shiva, also translated as “Siva”, also means benevolence, and symbolizes “prosperity” and “auspiciousness”, while also symbolizing “destruction.” Buddhist literature addressed him as Maheśvara, living at the top of ‘Form Realm’, and the ruler of the three realms. He is capable of eight incarnations namely earth, water, fire, wind, air, day, month, and sacrifice, and has the power to destroy and regenerate. It is often believed that Rudraksha has infinite energy and was already growing in the mountains of India, Indonesia and Nepal about 600 years ago.
This rare Rudraksha of Lord Shiva Offering originated from the “Shiva” altar in a South Indian temple in the 1950s. After that, the artifact changed hands among many Indian monks for half a century, and reached a Southeast Asian collector’s hands in the 1990s. It finally ended up in the ownership of a Singaporean Chinese who used it to worship Buddha.
