2016 Hsi Lai Temple Ullambana Dharma Function
Dear Dharma Friends,

The 2016 Ullambana Day is fast approaching. We will be holding the Ullambana Dharma Function in order to practice filial piety and honor our parents the way Maudgalyayana, disciple of the Buddha, did. During the month of Lunar July, in addition to chant the Ksitigarbha Sutra every morning and evening, we will also be conducting the Emperor Liang Repentance Service and the Yogacara Offering Service. Merits gained from these Dharma functions will be shared with our ancestors and departed loved ones so that they may be reborn in the Buddha’s pure land. It is also a good opportunity to repent our own transgressions, purify our minds, and cultivate wisdom and merit.

You and your family are cordially invited to attend these functions, the schedule of which is attached below.

Yours in the Dharma,      

Venerable Abbot Hui Dong      

Fo Guang Shan Hsi Lai Temple
