Medicine Buddha Puja @BW Monastery is here!
BW Monastery is holding a seven-day Medicine Buddha Puja from 6-12 November 2017 at 7:45-9:30pm. To offer blessings for the community and families for longevity and to clear obstacles.
Medicine Buddha was a great medicine healer, he has strong healing power who is able to cure physical and mental pain. It was mentioned in the "Sutra of the Merit and Virtue of Past Vows of Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata" that Medicine Buddha, while serving his Bodhisattva Vows, could not bear to see the mental and physical sufferings of all sentient beings. He thus made a vow to relieve all sentient beings who are afflicted with these pains.
If you chant the sutra of the Medicine Buddha with one-pointed mindfulness for longevity and to clear obstacles, you can eliminate your illness and afflictions, grow your blessings while reducing your sins and all your wishes will come true.
Our compassionate Venerable Jing Yuan presided over the ceremony on the first day of the Puja, with both the Sangha and devout practitioners chanting in sync with good faith, sounds of their chantings resonated through the main shrine hall.
Venerable Jing Yuan then led the congregation to dedicate the accumulated merits to all sentient beings. May all sentient beings rid themselves of all sufferings and misery. May all sentient beings attain Buddhahood in no time.
Have you attended the Puja yet? We welcome you to join us for the next remaining days of the Puja - to pray for blessings from Medicine Buddha. To pray for good health for one and all. And may all your wishes come true!
