Buddhists also believe that offering light is an especially quick way to accumulate merit and to receive blessings. By making light offerings, we collect merits to being born in a higher rebirth, in a pure land. Hence, we will be able to be liberated and attain Nirvana more quickly. It is mentioned in the Sutra of the Arya Loving Kindness:
If you offer 1,000 light offerings, or offer flowers 1,000 times; if you offer 1,000 blue upali flowers to stupas or make statues of Buddha, when Maitreya Buddha shows the holy deeds of enlightenment in this world, you will be born in front of Maitreya Buddha at that time.
So let’s grab the opportunity to make 10 000 light offerings as we venture into 2019! Join us on this three-day auspicious event and gain vast merits for a better tomorrow!
