妈祖的足迹-保赤宫

星期六,儿子好心拉我出外共游。烈日下,沿着新加坡河畔走,和兴致勃勃的儿子相反,我可一点也提不起劲。眼看我这个老女人就要快要枯竭了,路的尽头,就看到了保赤宫,突然,就像是一股清泉,所有的埋怨都不见了,这无疑是我今天的意外收获。

在庙的右侧看到了妈祖,好开心!

马上拿起手机就要拍照。可是,手机的摄像头却老是漆黑一片。我倒退了几步,手机才出现妈祖影像。靠近时又漆黑一片,怎么啦??庙里的一位先生告诉我,太近给神明拍相片是对神明不敬的。哦!那么神奇啊!妈祖是不让我近距离拍相吗?我退后几步,恭敬的拍了一张相片作纪念。(附)

新加坡很多古庙就像保赤宫一样在闹市的一角,静静的看着历史的脚步经过,不管时代如何的改变,在繁华的都市里依然屹立,卓然出众,守着先辈的伟大情操。我看了墙上的捐款榜,虽然经历了百多年,我仍然深深感动。谢谢您们!

 离开时,不禁感慨,古庙在闹市里,超凡入圣。而三巴旺天后宫却是费尽心思要远离尘嚣。。 不知道一百年以后。。又将会如何?

庙宇不是遗弃良心的场所

星期三,8月8日,放工的时候,隐约听到小猫无助的哀嚎声。财神庙饲养的几只大狗,追逐着,口里不知道叼着什么东西,从我身边竄过。

义工亚妹告诉我,早晨有人将2只初生的小猫放在天后宫门口。

曾经,在闭路电视里,亲眼目睹,这几只大狗撕咬一只枉死的猫。立即忘了自己的骨质疏松症,抢救大狗嘴里的小生命。过后,我替小猫那混账的主人接下了这个烫山芋,伤足了脑筋,寻找肯收养牠们的人。。。

庙宇不是遗弃良心的场所。您们的观赏鱼,植物,宠物,经书,佛像,破钞票,衣物,玩具,甚至生命。我们都没有义务承受呀!!

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.
