天妃显圣录 - 十六则


作者:柳滨 来源:妈祖城网

妈祖生平有许多传说,据《天后志》记载的有十五则,据《天妃显圣录》记载的有十六则。它们分别是:

A:莱屿长青: 湄洲岛旁边有一个小屿,传说有一天,妈祖到小岛上游玩时将菜子撒在地上,不久菜子奇迹般成长,花开满地。随后,每年无需耕种,自然生长。当地人视仙花采之。以后,人们就把这个地方称为"菜子屿"。

B:祷雨济民: 相传妈祖二十一岁的时候,莆田地方出现大旱,全县百姓都说非妈祖不能救此灾害。于是,县尹亲往向妈祖求救,妈祖祈雨,并说壬子日申刻就会下大雨。到了那天,上午晴空无云,丝毫没有要下雨的征兆,申刻一到,突然乌云滚滚,大雨滂沱而下,久旱遇甘雨,大地恢复往日生机。

C:挂席泛槎: 相传妈祖在世时,有一天,海上起风浪,妈祖要渡海,岸边船只是有,但是船上没有船桨,也没有船篷,加上风急浪大,船手不敢开船,妈祖对船手说:你只管起船。随即叫人将草席挂在桅杆上用作船帆。船开上海面,乘风破浪,飞弛而去。

D:化草救商: 相传妈祖在世时,湄洲屿西边有个出入湄洲的要冲叫门夹(就是今天的文甲),有一次,一艘商船在附近海上遭到巨风袭击触礁,海水涌进船舱,即将沉没,村民见狂巨浪,不敢前去营救。在这紧急时刻,妈祖信手在脚下找了几根小草,扔进大海,小草变成一排大杉划到并附在即将沉没的商船上,商舟免遭沉没,船中人免难。

E:降伏二神: 相传在妈祖二十三岁时,湄洲西北方向有二神,一为顺风耳,一为千里眼。二神经常出没贻害百姓。百姓祈求妈祖惩治二神。为了降服二神,妈祖与村女们一起上山劳动,这样,一直过十多天,二神终于出现了,当二神将近时,妈祖大声呵斥,二神见妈祖神威,化作一道火光而去,妈祖拂动手中丝帕,顿时狂风大作,那二神弄不清所以,持斧疾视,妈祖用激将法激二神丢下铁斧,丢下铁斧之后二神再也收不起铁斧,于是认输谢罪而去。两年后,二神海上再次作崇,十分厉害,妈祖用神咒呼风飞石使二神无处躲避,二神服输,愿为妈祖效力,于是妈祖收二神为将。

F:解除水患: 相传妈祖二十六岁时,那年上半年,阴雨连绵,福建与浙江两省倍受水灾之害。当时当地官员上奏朝廷,皇帝下旨就地祈雨,但祈求毫无改观。当地请求妈祖解害,妈祖道:灾害是人积恶所致,既然皇上有意为民解害,我更是应当祈天赦佑。于是焚香祷告,突然天开始起大风,并见云端有虬龙飞逝而去,天空晴朗了。那一年百姓还获得了好收成,人们感激妈祖,省官于是向朝廷为妈祖请功并准得到褒奖。

G:救父寻兄: 相传妈祖十六岁那年秋天的一天,其父兄驾船渡海北上之际,海上掀起狂风恶浪,船只遭损,情况危急。这时妈祖在家织布,忽然闭上眼睛,使劲全力扶住织机,母亲见状,忙叫醒她,妈祖醒来时失手将梭掉在了地上,见梭掉在了地上,妈祖哭道:父亲得救,哥哥死了!不久有人来报,情况属实。兄掉到海里后,妈祖陪着母亲驾船前去大海里寻找,突然发现有一群水族聚集在波涛汹涌的海面,众人十分担心,而妈祖知道是水族受水神之命前来迎接她,这时海水变清,其兄尸体浮了上来,于是将尸体运回去。此后每当妈祖诞辰之日,夜里鱼群环列湄屿之前,黎明才散去,而这一天也成为当地渔民的休船之日。

H:恳请治病: 相传妈祖在世时,有一年,莆田瘟疫盛行,县尹全家也染上了疾病,有人告知县尹妈祖有解难之法力。于是,县尹亲自拜请妈祖,妈祖念他平时为官不坏,加上他是外来官,告诉他用菖莆九节煎水饮服,并将咒符贴在门口。县尹回去后遵嘱施行,不日疾病痊愈。

I:收伏二怪: 相传妈祖在世时,湄洲有嘉应和嘉佑二怪,经常出没害民。有一天,一位船客遭怪物作怪,船将沉没。妈祖见之即化作一货船,前去救难。嘉佑见货船前来,立即来追货船。妈祖口念神咒,将其制服。嘉佑当即叩首服罪,妈祖将其收入水阙仙班。为制服嘉应,妈祖施计,于山路独行,嘉应以为只是民间美女,便起歹心前来触犯,妈祖一挥尘拂,嘉应见之不妙逃去。时隔一年,嘉应又出来为害百姓,妈祖说:"这个怪物不归正道,必然扰害人间。"于是叫村民带符焚香斋戒,自己则乘小舟,到海上出其不意,降服嘉应。妈祖也将嘉应收为水阙仙班一员。

J:窥井得符: 相传妈祖十六岁的时候,有一次,与一群女伴出去游玩,当她对着井水照妆时,一位后面跟着一班神仙的神人捧着一双铜符,拥井而上,把铜符授给她,一起玩得女伴们都吓跑了,而妈祖则接受铜符,并不怀疑。妈祖接受铜符后,灵通变化,符咒避邪,法力日见神通,以至她常能神游,腾云渡海,救急救难,人门称她是"神姑","龙女"。

K:妈祖诞降: 妈祖父亲林惟悫(讳愿),母亲王氏,二人多行善积德。惟悫年四十多岁时,已生有一男五女。但担忧一子难保传宗接代,所以经常焚香祷告,想再生一个儿子。惟悫夫妇的虔诚感动了南海观音,一天晚上,观音托梦给王氏并对王氏说:"你家行善积德,今赐你一丸,服下当得慈济之赐。"不久王氏便怀孕了。北宋建隆元年(960年)三月二十三日傍晚,王氏分娩时,西北处一道貌岸然红光射入屋中,并伴有隆鸣之声,妈祖降生了。因妈祖是女孩,父母非常失望,但妈祖生得奇异,因此十分疼爱。妈祖从出生到满月,一声不哭,所以,其父母给她取名林默。相传妈祖诞生在湄洲岛。

L:湄屿飞升: 宋太宗雍熙四年,妈祖时年二十八岁,重阳节的前一天,对家人说:"我心好清净,不愿居于凡尘世界。明天是重阳佳节,想去爬山登高。预先和你们告别。"家人都以为她要登高远眺,不知将要成仙。第二天早上,妈祖焚香诵经之后,告别诸姐,一人直上湄峰最高处,这时,湄峰顶上浓云重重,妈祖化作一道白光冲入天空,乘风而去。此后妈祖经常显灵显圣,护国佑民,救人危难,当地百姓感激她,在湄峰建起祠庙,虔诚供奉。据传祖庙后的摩崖"升天古迹"处就是妈祖飞天的地。

M:驱除怪风: 相传妈祖在世时,湄洲对面吉蓼城西面,有一座跨海石桥,是当地百姓南来北往的要道。有一天,忽然怪风刮起,刮断了全部桥桩,一时交通断绝,人们无法过往。百姓以为是风神所为,于是祈求妈祖解难。妈祖到石桥处察看,见远处天空一道黑气,知道是有怪所为,于是施展灵术将怪驱逐远去,从此石桥通畅无害。

N:收伏晏公: 相传妈祖在世时,海上有一怪物叫晏公,时常在海上兴风作浪,弄翻船只。有一天,妈祖驾船驶到东部大海,怪物又开始兴风作浪,妈祖乘坐的船只摇晃的非常厉害。妈祖即令抛锚,见前方波涛中一舟上有一金冠绣袖、掀髯突睛之神在作怪。妈祖不动声色,掀起狂风巨浪与之抗击,晏公害怕妈祖的神威,叩拜荡舟离去。但怪物一时为法力所制有所不服,于是变成一条神龙,继续兴风作浪,妈祖说到:"此妖不除,风波不息",在中游抛锚,制服神龙。妈祖命令晏公统领水阙仙班(共有十八位),护卫海上船民,后来晏公成为妈祖部下总管。

O:收高里鬼: 相传妈祖在世时,有一个叫高里的地方出了一个妖怪,当地百姓受其害,染上百病,当地百姓前去求妈祖医治,妈祖给求治者一符咒,叮嘱百姓回去后,将符咒贴于病人床头上。妖怪知符咒法力巨大,于是变成一只鸟逃去,妈祖追出,见鸟藏在树上,鸟嘴还喷出一团黑气,妈祖口中念到:"此怪物不能留此,为患乡里",追击并将鸟抓获。原来是一只鹪鹩,妈祖用符水噴洒小鸟,小鸟落地变成一撮枯发,妈祖取火烧之,枯发现出小鬼原相。小鬼忙叩请妈祖收留,妈祖于是将它收在台下服役。

P:铁马渡江: 相传有一天,妈祖要渡海,可是没有船只,这时候,妈祖见旁边屋檐前悬有铁马,于是灵机一动,取之挥鞭,铁马奔海对面风驰而去,待人上了对岸,忽然之间,铁马无影无踪,旁边的人无不惊叹"龙女"的神通广大。

媽祖 (韓寶儀主唱)

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.
