At Leong Hwa Monastery, our goals remain steadfast to embrace and propagate the Buddha’s Teachings as well as to practise His Teachings, thereby cultivating loving kindness and compassion to benefit us and other sentient beings. We will therefore continue with our Sunday Dharma talk, led by Venerable Sek Meow Ee until we take a break on 20 January 2019 for the Lunar New Year.
In the New Year, we will have the Yogacara Ulka-mukha (Puja) Dharma Service (放焰口) on the last Sunday of every Gregorian (Western) calendar except for January which will be held on the 20 th . This Puja helps the lost souls such as the hungry ghosts (Pretas) to be relieved from sufferings and reminds participants to enhance their spiritual cultivation, stay as faithful and sincere Buddhists and be always mindful of Buddha and His Teachings.
In December, we will commemorate the birthday of Amitabha Buddha by having the 8-precept retreat and reciting the ‘San Shi Xi Nian’ sutra. Amitabha Buddha is a celestial Buddha probably the best known of the Dhyani Buddhas. In particular, devotion to Amitabha is at the centre of Pure Land Buddhism. After accumulating great merit over countless lives, he finally achieved Buddhahood and is still residing in his land of Sukhavati, situated in the uttermost west, beyond the bounds of our own world.
We welcome all to join us in our activities. If you need further information, kindly contact us on telephone 6253 3532.
May the Merits of the Triple Gem be always with you!
