<妈祖传奇>之龙女投胎来济世


传说五代时,湄洲湾一带海妖水怪经常兴风作浪,翻船吃人,危害渔民百姓。金龟山的山神,很想为民除害,替百姓报仇雪恨,但心有余而力不足,只好转告当地的土地公,请求他申报玉帝。

玉皇大帝闻报,勃然大怒,委命观音菩萨处治此事,观音对随身的龙女说:“龙女贤徒,近日闽中南莆之南,湄洲之北,俄顷风涛大作,覆没商舟渔船数十只,幽魂葬于鱼腹,无一人救护,今派你一凡,择其良家投胎出世,一则除妖,二则庇民,待功德完满之日,自有造化。”龙女鞠躬行礼道:“小徒遵命!”

再说,巡海官林惟悫,原是五代闽王时的都巡检。因为要改朝换代――五代将亡,宋朝必兴,林惟悫弃官为民,隐居天涯海角打鱼为生。林惟悫夫妇俩为人忠愿老实,好善乐施。林夫人王氏生一男五女。那时海难经常发生,惟悫担心单传一子,万一遇到海难,就有绝户的危险。夫妻两人初一、十五都到观音亭去烧香拜佛,祈求观音菩萨再赐男儿。特别是林夫人,格外虔诚,天天烧香,日日拜佛。真心诚意,终于感动了观音菩萨。

六月中旬,一天夜里,林夫人做了一个梦,梦见观音菩萨赐一颗晶莹的丸药给她,并对她说:“你家世代行善积德,今赐胎丸一粒,服下当得慈济之赐赠。”林夫人高兴极了,一口吞下,便怀了孕。

翌年三月二十三日酉时,林夫人要分娩时,天变紫色,地动山摇。此时,有一道红光从西北天空射入卧室,晶莹夺目,照耀得林家一片通红。屋顶红光闪烁,四周异香扑鼻。左邻右舍,纷至沓来,观音如堵。室内红光耀眼,香气袭人,林夫人生下了一个千金――龙女投胎出世了。

林夫人生下了六小姐,父母虽大失所望,但又认为她出世时山摇地动,又有红光灵气,一定不是等闲之女,也很疼爱她。因为自出生到满月时,都没有听见她啼哭过,所以为其取名“默”,也有人称她为“龙女”。林默就是后来“护国庇民,泽施四海”的妈祖。

媽祖靈驗傳奇:

Mazu and Mazu Culture

Over 1,000 years ago, a beautiful young girl by the name of Lin Mu was born at the Xianliang Port of Meizhou Bay in Putian, Fujian Province. Clever, brave and kind-hearted, Lin Mu could forecast the weather and was happy to help fishermen in distress at sea. She encouraged the people to conquer nature and defeat evil, so she was much loved and esteemed by the people in her hometown. Unfortunately she died an early death at only 28. As the legend goes, she ascended to heaven and became an immortal at Meizhou Bay located opposite to the Xianliang Port.

For more over 1,000 years, she has been living, with a composed and tender smile, in the hearts of the people. The people pay homage to her, respectfully calling her fairy, the daughter of dragon, goddness, the mother or Mazu ( a title of respect for an aged woman): rulers of past dynasties upheld her and granted her the titles of "Lady", "Heavenly Queen" and "Holy Mother"; the times have bestowed her a series of loveable and respected names such as "Goddess of the Sea", "Goddness of the the Straits" and "Goddess of Peace of the Straits".
She is none other than the world-renowned Mazu, goddess of the sea, of Fujian, China.
The respect for Mazu has turned into a wide-spread belief with the passage of time. Following the footprints of sea merchants and overseas Chinese, Mazu went out of Putian, out of Fujian and out of China, making her presence in many corners of Asia, America, Australia and Europe. Consequently, over 1,500 Mazu temples are found all over the world, where Muzu from Meizhou are consecrated. The belief in Mazu has become a sort of transnational folk belief with more than 100 million worshippers. However, different from a religion in the ordinary sense, is a special kind of ideology connected with theology, religion, folklore, sociology as well as the history of sea commnication overseas Chinese, culture and the development of Fujian and Taiwan. This is the culture of Mazu which has aroused an extensive interest and great attention of Chinese and foreign scholars and is now under integral part of the culture of the Chinese nation and a part of the brilliant civilization of China.


In recent years, there are a number of academic groups, experts and scholars working on research of Mazu and published special works on the subject in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao regions and in such countries as Japan, the United States, France, Singapore and Malaysia. The research on the Mazu culture has a great appeal and cohesive force to the Chinese both at home and abroad. Now the achievements in the research on the Mazu culture have become valuable material in the research on the history of navigation, science, overseas Chinese, development of off-shore islands and economic and cultural exchanges with foreign countries as well as the history of folklore and religion of ancient China.
