We will host a 3-Day Amitabha Session on December 25 – 27, 2015
December 27 Schedule:
8:30am Celebration of Amitabha Buddha’s Birthday
10:00am Liberation of Life Ceremony
1:00-4:00pm Amitabha Session, Transference of Merit
During the Amitabha Session, we will single-mindedly recite Amitabha Buddha’s name to purify our body, mouth and mind and to perfect our faith of being reborn in the Western Pure Land. May we take this special opportunity to cultivate together and gain benefits of this dharma practice.
If you recite the Buddha’s name, reciting without cease,
The mouth recites “Amita” and makes things of a piece.
Scattered thoughts do not arise, samadhi you attain.
For rebirth in the Pure Land, your hope is not in vain.
Mindful of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha,
One is born in the jeweled lotuses of the pure lands of the ten directions.
When the lotus blossom opens, the Buddha manifests and one attains full realization.
One is then free in each moment to come and go.
Everyone is welcome to join us, single-mindedly reciting Amitabha Buddha’s name.
Lecturer: Dharma Master Jin Yu
Every Monday & Tuesday, 7:30-9:00pm
Unless you read the Shurangama Sutra, you won’t know the key to cultivating the mind and awakening from confusion.
The Venerable Master Hsuan Hua’s said in one of his talks:
The Great Master Han Shan (Silly Mountain) once said: “Unless you read the Shurangama Sutra, you won’t know the key to cultivating the mind and awakening from confusion.” This says it exactly right, because every dharma that exists is found within the Shurangama Sutra, so there are no potentials it fails to attract. It is the essential Dharma for all generations: It is the right seal for becoming a Buddha or a Patriarch.
Meditation is like food from Nature that nourishes our Dharma-Body, which nutrients from the empty space [while we meditate], and grows healthily.
