    因為今年除夕恰逢週日,来湛山上香的香客络绎不绝。他们中既有耄耋长者,也有幼童少年,既有华夏子孙,也有其他族裔。有的专门赶来聆听大和尚讲解《心经》。按倓虚大师所创规矩,每年除夕大和尚都要為心中开示《心经》。这一传统已经延续了近百年。

    入夜,湛山精舍的大殿前广场人头攒动,人声鼎沸,人们从四面八方赶来,参加一年一度的除夕撞钟祈福庆祝活动。人们纷纷前去香油台,在许愿带和许愿牌上写下写下自己的心愿和祝福。辞旧迎新时刻,许愿十分神圣。

    11点半,一阵紧密的锣鼓声响起,两头威武的灵狮飞舞而来。整个湛山喜气洋洋,热闹非凡。达义大和尚和加拿大联邦加拿大移民、难民及公民部长麦家廉(John McCallum)及夫人,中国驻多伦多总领事薛冰及夫人以及加拿大联邦多名国会议员、安省议员和多伦多市议员等握笔为这对灵狮点睛。

    湛山精舍新年吉祥物有家喻户晓的财神、金猴和沙弥向大家走来,向大家招手。小沙弥是“智慧”,金猴是“自在”。因为小沙弥出家修行代表“智慧”,同时“智慧”也是湛山的弘法理念。金猴是代表聪明灵巧、活泼可爱、应对自如,故命名“自在”,也是达义大和尚的《智慧人生》系列丛书的第一本书《自在人生》的写照。该书在节前由中国宗教出版社发行,现在各大书店均售。大家纷纷上去与之大踏步合影留念。

三、二、一!随着除夕倒计时的最后一秒,位于多伦多东北部的湛山精舍上空礼花飞舞,祝福声、欢笑声汇聚在这个加拿大历史上第一座汉传佛教寺院。加拿大和中国两国政要与当地社会名流、各族信众见证了这辞旧迎新的难忘时刻。

中国驻多伦多总领事馆薛冰总领事在现场致辞表示,佛教是世界四大宗教之一,两千多年来倡导众生平等、众善奉行、世界和平,为世界的文明史做出了重要贡献,也为社会和谐发挥了重要的作用。加拿大佛教会长期以来在加拿大传播佛教教义,传播中华文化,功德无量。

麦家廉部长在致辞中用粤语和普通话向在场信众和华人恭贺新年,他说:“加拿大人民和中国人民是好朋友。贾斯汀·特鲁多总理领导的政府将致力於加强加中两国的友好交流,促进两国人民的经济和文化交流。这方面,湛山精舍已经走出了一大步。”他并向湛山精舍长期致力于领导和建设加拿大佛教社区表示敬意。

金猴迎春贺吉祥,敲鐘祈福祝平安。达义大和尚和各位来宾还為大家爱赠送利是(红包),送上祝福,恭贺新禧。人们纷纷围拢过来向达义大和尚和各位法师,希望得到诸佛菩萨的护佑。

信众们无惧严寒大殿前广场上,排队等候撞钟上香的信众排起了长龙,远不见队尾,撞钟声此起彼伏。一位姓林的华人激动地说:“这样过除夕,全年最吉祥!”

湛山的新年祈福庆祝活动声势浩大,寺院周围的邻居都施以援手,纷纷腾出自己的停车位供湛山宾客和信眾使用。附近的基督教堂也腾出180个车位给湛山,湛山在这裡设立了中转站供来往迎送整个祈福庆祝活动从一直延续到清晨,大殿争上头柱香的信众才慢慢散去。

加拿大湛山精舍成立于1973年,是加拿大多伦多宣扬中国大乘佛教成立最早、规模最大的佛教组织之一,现任住持为达义法师。湛山精舍正发起筹备在加拿大建设佛教四大名山的工程。

现场嘉宾专家表示,由汉传佛教寺院带给海外华人以回家过年的感觉,能在海外展示中国传统文化的精彩给世界,这种现象值得探究。
