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!

灯,是光明、是希望、是温暖的象征,更是智慧的代名词。

千年之暗,一灯即能破!若是万灯汇聚的灯海,该是何等壮观!

想事业创高峰、学业成绩优、人际关系佳吗?别迟疑,到吉祥寺点灯启智慧吧!

智慧之因,由您点亮!

Date: 29 – 31 December 2018 (Specially tailored to different groups on different days)
