Celebrating our nation's birthday with Pujas seeking blessings and refuges
What manner of birthday celebrations are most joyous and auspicious? As Buddhists, nothing beats seeking refuges in the Triple Gems as the most joyous and auspicious way in wishing for blessings for our nation!
This morning, on National Day, BW Monastery celebrated our nation's birthday with two Puja sessions - the first one-hour session from 9am, praying for our nation's prosperity and progress, and the second two-hour session for refuges seeking. Both sessions saw a total of 500 participants.
Among those who came, there were BW Monastery's members and their families, as well as other fellow Buddhists. Under BW Monastery Venerables' guidance, all who took part in the Pujas, followed through with pure fervent hearts and immersed themselves fully, wholeheartedly and joyously as the sounds of chant and prayers of Buddhist sutras and rites filled the Shrine Hall of the Monastery.
