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 Assemblies and Seven Places. Huayen Lotus Society has been hosting the Avatamsaka Sutra chanting ceremony twice a year, every year since 1957, following the direction of Master Nan Ting, the Abbot at the time.

From December 15th, 2019 (Sunday) to December 22nd, 2019 (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. With the blessings from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, may all sentient beings roam through the world-systems of the Flower Treasury and enter the Vairocana’s nature sea.

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

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