Home|Filial Piety Emperor Liang Repentance Dharma Service

Dear Dharma Friends,

The 2019 Ullambana Festival (the month of filial piety) is approaching soon. To emulate the Arhat Maudgalyayana’s memorialization of his mother and promote the virtue of filial piety and repaying kindness, Hsi Lai Temple will be conducting the Filial Piety Emperor Liang Repentance Dharma Service from July 28–August 4 and the Yogacara Offering Service on August 4. Merits gained from these Dharma services will be dedicated to the ancestors and departed loved ones so that they may be reborn in the Buddha’s pure land. This is also a good opportunity to repent transgressions, purify the minds, and nurture the wisdom.

In addition, during the entire seventh lunar month (from August 1 to August 29), the monastics will lead devotees to chant the Ksitigarbha Sutra every morning and evening in the Main Shrine, and transfer all merits to the devotees and benefactors’ parents, ancestors, and loved ones. You and your family are most welcome to attend the services and share in the Dharma joy.

May the Triple Gem bless you and your family!

Yours in the Dharma,      
Fo Guang Shan Hsi Lai Temple
