于伟城迎接佛的“欢喜月”

今天是农历七月初一,俗称“鬼月”的第一天。对学佛之人而言,七月却是“吉祥月”,也是佛的“欢喜月”,因为僧众在三个月的结夏安居期间都非常专注地修行,所以很快得成就。在这个月悟道、证果的弟子因此很多,令佛陀非常欢喜。

在这个吉祥又欢喜的中午,笼区的区长文英师兄及两位名誉会长东荣讲师、义哲讲师发动全职、学员举办广大供养。正巧来自斯里兰卡的Bhante Sumangala到访伟城中心,大家欢喜迎接,之后由他带领大家供灯、祈福。

Celebrating Ullambana Festival at Citiraya

Today is the 1st day of the seventh lunar month. While the occasion is known to most as the Hungry Ghost Festival, Buddhists on the other hand celebrates the Ullambana Festival. This is the time to make prayers and offerings such that the merits through our virtuous acts can be dedicated to the loved ones who have passed away. Importantly, this create the causes for them to be reborn in the fortunate realms.

At Citiraya Centre this afternoon, we did just that by organising a simple vast offering for the full time staff and those who were around. The occasion was graced by Bhante Sumangala from Sri Lanka, who led us with a prayer of dedication for our loved ones. Joyously, we made light offerings to the triple gems and also offering to Bhante Sumangala. Rejoice to all who attended, and may we dedicate these virtuous merits to those who have dearly departed!
