ABLS holds a one-day Cundi Dharma practice on every 5th Sunday. This is to ensure the tradition of leading lay people practising Dharma in monastery on a monthly basis, as well as to integrate practices into key teachings of Huayen Buddhism. The 5th Sunday of this month falls on 10/29/2017, and there will be a Cundi Dharma event consisting of five sessions. The 1st session starts at 9am with Master Tian Cheng, the Abbess, leading the assembly to practice Cundi Repentance; during the 2nd session, Master Hsien Du（賢度法師）, President of Avatamsaka Buddhist Lotus Society, will give a public teaching during her one-week visit to the U.S; the 3rd session will be food offerings to the Buddha. In the afternoon, the assembly will practice Cundi Sutra, Cundi Mantra for the 4th session at 1:30pm, and Eighty-Eight Buddha Repentance, Meng Shan Food Bestowal Ceremony (Food for the passed away) for the 5th session.
Cundi Dharma practice was carried out since the time of Master Zhi Guang, the first Abbot of Huayen Buddhist Lotus Society in Taipei. Cundi practice was passed on as a Dharma Gateway for contemplating on the non-obstruction reality-realm and the Indra’s net, as well as to dig up the dormant treasures inside practitioners’ mind and body. The key to this practice is to follow the One-Vehicle tradition’s doctrine of realizing the Vairocana Buddha nature of our own, and developing our native Samantabhadra’s deeds. Huayen practitioners have benefited immensely from the Cundi Dharma practice, thus this Dharma Gateway has always been popular among both the monastic and lay people. This practice allows people to the Huayen world of ultimate reality and to enter the great field of Bodhi. We hope more people are taking this great opportunity to this unsurpassed practice.
