Home|2019 Sangha Day Celebration

Dear Devotees & Dharma Friends,

The annual Sangha Day is also approaching. According to the Buddhist tradition, one may cultivate tremendous merits by making offerings to the Sangha, and practice filial piety by dedicating the merits to their parents and ancestors, and to all the sentient beings. The best way to make offerings to the Triple Gem and support the monastery is to make offerings to the monastic community rather than to just one person or a small number of people; to make offerings for the entire year rather than for only one meal; to make offering consistently rather than just for the present. In this way, one is supporting the Sangha and helping them practice and spread Buddhism, and therefore make this practice with deepened meaning. In order to thank all the devotees and Dharma friends for their kind support, Hsi Lai Temple will conduct a Yogacara Offering Service in the afternoon of the Sangha Day (Sunday, July 14at 2:00 pm) for them.

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.

Yours in the Dharma,      
Hsi Lai Temple
