Home|FGS Hsi Lai Temple Amitabha Dharma Service

Dear Dharma Friends,

As the birthday of Amitabha Buddha approaches, Hsi Lai Temple will conduct the annual “Amitabha Dharma Service” from December 23~30, 2018. According to the sutras, “Reciting the Buddha’s name gains limitless merits; making a full bow to the Buddha eradicates endless unwholesome karma.” The merit of reciting the Buddha’s name is truly auspicious because it helps us realize our intrinsic Amitabha nature, eradicate the karma of our defilements and be reborn to the Western Pure Land. In the pure land, we can see the Buddha, hear the Dharma and develop the views and understanding of the Buddha.

During the service, participants are encouraged to recite the Buddha's name or transcribe the Amitabha Sutra as additional practice. At the conclusion of the service, an “Amitabha Triple Contemplation Service” will be conducted on December 30 at 1:30 pm, the merits of which will be transferred to the departed loved ones of our devotees for rebirth into the Pure Land. All are welcome to attend and share in the joy of the Dharma.

Rising Dawn of Success
