In today’s Buddha’s Ascension Ceremony, the total width of all three Buddha’s aura carvings were wider than the width of the shrine. In addition, we discovered today that the angle of the aura and the size of the lotus seats were not the same. Therefore, we had to make last minute adjustments, but these problems were quickly resolved. Of special mention is that the position we marked out last evening turned out to be the best and only position that can fit in all three statues. Thank you to all sangha and lay disciples around the world for your sincere supplication, and to all committee members and workers of the monastery team for your meticulous planning and response. Most grateful to Teacher for your thoughts and blessings to ensure everything went smoothly.
Teacher was most delighted, saying, “The Buddha has come to BW Monastery upon the sincere requests of sentient beings!”
Both sangha and lay disciples at the ceremony were in very high spirits, and excitedly took pictures in front of the Buddhas.
