ABLS Year End Dharma Service Notice







Year End Avatamsaka Sutra Chanting Ceremony

The Avatamsaka Sutra, or the Flower Adornment Sutra demonstrates Buddha’s endless virtues and wisdom through Samantabhadra, Manjushri and other Bodhisattvas in nine meetings, seven places of heaven and earth after he reached enlightenment. Huayen Lotus Society has been hosting the Avatamsaka Sutra chanting ceremony twice a year since 1957, following the direction of Master Nan Ting, the Abbot at the time.

From December 10th (Sunday) to December 17th (Sunday), ABLS will host an eight-day ceremony chanting the Avatamsaka Sutra Volumes 60 through 81. Abbess Tian Cheng will also lecture on the essentials of the sutra. All sentient beings are endowed to explore the Huayen world of ultimate reality and to enter the great field of Bodhi.

On the last day, Buddha honoring services will be conducted to bless the living as well as to commemorate the deceased.

The chanting ceremony will start at 8:30 AM on each day. You are all cordially invited to participate and receive the blessings.





Bodhi Day Dharma Service

On Sunday, January 21, 2018, ABLS will celebrate the Bodhi Day, which commemorates the day when Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, attained enlightenment. Starting at 9:00 AM, Shakyamuni Buddha honoring service will be conducted, followed by food offering ceremony and vegetarian lunch. The assembly will chant the Aspiration of Bodhisattva Samantabhadra in the afternoon. Everyone is invited.

All are invited to pray for Shakyamuni Buddha’s blessings, and the merits will be dedicated to all attendees for happiness and wisdom.
