Dear devotees, donors, and friends
Qing Ming Remembrance Festival
The Qing Ming Remembrance Festival is a time to continue to express our filial piety to our beloved ancestors, regardless of how long they have passed away. In the Buddhist community, we commemorate this event by encouraging you to dedicate merits to them, a good deed for which you and your family will also be blessed through your participation.
In addition, you may also wish to have the transference of merits can also be dedicated to your past and present life “Karmic Creditors”.
We will be reciting “The Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva” on Mondays to Saturdays during the two-week period. This sutra is fundamentally a teaching on ‘karmic retribution’ and it describes the consequences one creates for oneself by committing undesirable actions. This is especially beneficial for future beings in this dharma ending age, to help them to perform more good deeds and avoid being reborn in the lower realm.
Dates: 26 to 31 March and 2 to 7 April 2018
Time: 10.00 am to 3.30 pm
