为人不做亏心事,半夜不怕鬼敲门 "Ghost Festival"-Chinese Culture

2012年8月17日 晴天

朋友们看了要小心..

鬼节,从农历七月初一起至农历七月三十,七月初一曰开鬼门,七月十五时鬼活动最

炽,七月三十曰关鬼门。尤其是在七月十四的这一天。民间很多庙会,都有很多活动

来膜拜好兄弟。一直要到二十九日,阎王才会将所有的鬼魂召回地府。虽然,

民间有「鬼月诸事不宜」的说法,不见得符合科学精神,但是藉由这样的警惕要提醒

大家,凡事一定要小心,切莫贪一时之快,忽略了安全上的问题。所以,

不论鬼神是否存在,

鬼门开的传说


根据中国传统民间传说,每年到了农历七月一日的凌晨,「地府」就会将鬼门打开,


让在阴间受苦受难的鬼魂们,回到阳间探访自己的家人。而有些鬼魂则是因为无家可归,


到处在阳间到处游荡。在阳间民众为了避免这些孤魂野鬼影响平静的生活,


便会准备丰盛的牲礼祭品,让他们「饱餐」一顿。


中元节的由来





在「鬼月」里,最盛大的祭祀活动就是十五日的中元节,家家户户都会在这一天



摆上最丰富的祭品,在每一道祭品插上香,并且烧纸钱给这些「好兄弟」。



古时候,农历七月时节是农民们庆祝丰收的日子,天子都会先以新收获的谷物来祭祀



祖庙,以表达对祖先的敬意,感谢祖先的庇佑让大家能年年丰收,这项仪式称为「荐



新」,因为敬畏、缅怀祖先德泽,是中国人饮水思源的优良传统,所以古人们便在七



月中举行扩大的祭祀活动。在一些古时候的文献里记载着:「正月十五为上元,七月



十五为中元,十月十五为下元。」最初道教订七月十五为中元节,是为了诵经做法事



以三牲五果普渡鬼魂;而佛教也会在这天举行「超渡法会」,由和尚诵经,并准备各



式供品来供养僧众。古时候的人相信这样的传言:农历七月时,掌管阴间的阎罗王会



释放阴间鬼魂,让它们来到阳间「透透气」,所以这个月也被称为「鬼月」。人们为



了安抚飘泊的鬼魂,会准备丰盛祭品来祭拜,让鬼魂在这个月能和人民和平相处,于



是就称呼他们为「好兄弟」。综合以上种种的典故,而有了「中元节」。











七月初一鬼门开啦!赶紧进来补习下-------鬼月禁忌

1、姓名勿直呼:晚上不要穿戴绣有自己姓名的衣物,以免元神被附身,另外最好避免连名带姓的直呼别人名字,否则一旦给好兄弟听到后,会趁机取走他的三魂六魄,同时若听到有人喊自己的名字时,也千万不要立刻回头或回应。

2、别拍肩膀:从灵学的角度来说,人的身上有三把火,分别在头及两个肩膀上,所以鬼月的时候最好不要随便拍别人的头及肩,以免熄掉他身上的火,让好兄弟有机可乘。


吃饭时不可以将筷子插在饭碗之上,其形状如同香插在香炉上,会招来好兄弟来与你分享食物;


3、不可吹口哨,当心好兄弟喜欢你;


经过坟地时,口中要不断默念“对不起,打扰了!”并保持肃穆不可吹口哨,以表示对好兄弟的尊重。


4、不可去危险水域戏水,传说中“水鬼”会找人当替死鬼,以便投胎;


5、不可偷吃祭拜的祭品,与鬼争食,恐遭来厄运;


6、床头不挂风铃,因风铃会招阴;也不玩碟仙。住家门口前别种容易卡阴的榕树,另外屋子内也别乱挂风铃,不玩碟仙、不上阴庙,这样可以减少阴灵上身的可能。


7、夜晚,少去荒郊野外或偏僻的地方,八字轻的人怕会撞见好兄弟;


8、地上的零钱及红包袋,不要乱随便捡起来;不要随便捡起路边的钱,因为这些钱可能是好兄弟们的,要不然这些就是冥婚招亲用的。


9、路经丧事场所,嘴里及心里不可有不敬的念头或言语;


10、忌乱踩冥纸或乱烧冥纸;


11、别乱靠墙休息:没事不要乱靠墙,因为好兄弟平时最喜欢依附在墙上休息,此举很容易引鬼上身 。


12、收好衣服防鬼“借”:晚上睡觉或天黑以前,要把晒在外头的衣服收回来,以免被鬼借去穿。


13、别乱照相:夜游时最好不要乱照相,否则好兄弟会入镜与你合影,手电筒也不要往树上乱照,以免惊动喜欢附着于树梢上的好兄弟。


诸多禁忌,族繁不及备载。其实,只要不影响正常生活作息,倒是宁可信其有不可信其无。对于许多人来说,不论灵验与否,至少也能求个心安。有人习惯随身带着开运避邪物品,像带着庙里求来的护身符、佛珠,或粗盐、糯米等避煞物;十字架或者具特殊能量的矿石等。
