Putuo Mountain, Miao-Shan great master 妙善法师 (595)
Zhejiang Province

妙善法师:

      南海观音铜像是普陀山“海天佛国”的象征。来到景区入口门楼处,扑面而来“南海观音”四个金铜色大字,这应是出自妙善法师之手。

      妙善法师(1909—2000),江苏如皋人,1932年他在丹阳地藏寺礼寂宽法师出家为僧,后在普陀山傅经护法五十多年。曾任中国佛教协会咨议委员会副主席、浙江省佛教协会会长、普陀山全山主持。他生平“教宗天台、行兼禅净”,学识渊博,戒行高洁,堪称一代宗师。于2000年2月26日14时38分在普陀山圆寂,享年92岁。

      妙善法师任普陀山全山方丈时已年逾八十,但他壮心不已,为振兴普陀山佛教事业做了四件至关重要的大事。

      一是统一管理,化零为整。将历史上一直沿袭的“各寺为政”分散型管理,改为全山寺“财务、人事、修建”三统一的新型管理模式,形成全山“一盘棋”。

      二是开办学院,培养人才。先后开办佛学院、女众班、硕士班和佛教历史文化研究所等,培养了200多名佛教人才。

      三是以法会友,广结善缘。组织本山法师赴台湾、香港、日本、菲律宾、新加坡、美国等数十个国家和地区,开展宗教文化交流,不仅提高了海天佛国的知名度,还为保护、建设佛教名山引进了大量资金和人才。

      四是扩大建设,提升地位。期间普陀山又新建了洛迦山五百罗汉塔、法雨寺牌坊、紫竹林紫竹壁、西天铜殿等一批新的人文景观。尤其是1997年建成的高达33米的南海观音铜像,已成为驰名世界的一大佛教文化瑰宝。

妙善法师所作《南海观音开光法语》:

      宝坨岩上大悲尊,相好光明转金轮,婆心切切施无畏,万众景仰万古存。

      震旦普陀洛迦,地处南海,道续西乾,经云:“勇猛丈夫观自在,为度众生住此山”,既云圣人所居,故而瞻礼如潮,因兹梵宫遍布,钟馨相闻,可谓宝纲交光,运台共观。时适中华崛起,象教重兴,南海观音铜像应运落成,国事家事,频传佳讯!仰见宝像凌空,海众欢腾,龙天齐赞,谨延诸山尊宿,共为开点灵光。且道大士心光、身光,两皆具足;智光、慈光,照耀无量;既今开光一句,又作么生道呢?

       真如界内不染尘,佛事门内万法生,悟得三谛归一贯,不妨朱笔点虚空。
