ABLS Year End Dharma Service Notice

歲末年終華嚴誦經會

《華嚴經》,全名《大方廣佛華嚴經》。為佛陀成道後,於天上、人間七處,經九次集會,藉普賢、文殊等諸大菩薩海眾,開顯佛陀的因行果德,正如繁華一般莊嚴富貴、芬芳燦爛,展現了佛境界廣大圓滿、重重無盡、事事無礙的生命智慧。本社自南亭老和尚1957年啟建「華嚴誦經法會」以來,每年春季、年終兩次的法界盛會,僧信共修不綴,延續至今。

本社謹訂於西元2016年12月25日(星期日)起至2017年1月1日(星期日)(農曆十一月廿七日至十二月初四日)止,啟建華嚴誦經會八永日。諷誦《大方廣佛華嚴經》卷六十至卷八十一。由本蓮社住持天承法師主持並開示《華嚴經》要義。在諸佛菩薩的慈悲加被下,祈願法界一切眾生,同遊華藏世界,共入毘盧性海。

法會圓滿日,適逢釋迦佛成道臘八紀念,舉行釋迦普佛及往生普佛各一堂。以祈本社延生堂上諸蓮友,福壽康寧,家門吉慶;並願以此功德拔度本社功德堂上地基神祇、各姓護法門中先遠宗親、父母師長、冤親債主、無緣子女等眾亡靈早生淨土。

華嚴誦經會,將於每天上午八時半開始,敬邀十方大德蒞臨參與,同霑法義,共植福田。
