Bathing the Buddha Dharma Assembly
To celebrate the holy birthday of Sakyamuni Buddha, Bathing the
Buddha Dharma Assembly will be held by United International World
Buddhism Headquarters, Hua Zang Si in San Francisco, and Sanger
Mission on Sunday, May 16, 2010 at 9:30 a.m. in the Sakyamuni Buddha
Hall at Hua Zang Si in San Francisco. At this Dharma Assembly, we will
beseech Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to bless all living beings, bring peace
to the world, free living beings from disasters and misfortune, and help
them attain happiness!
Bathing the Buddha statue will bring you great merit. As stated in a
Buddhist sutra: “After the Buddha entered Nirvana, you recite the holy
name of the Buddha while you bathe the statue of the Buddha as if he
were present. As long as good believers perform the bathing the Buddha
statue ritual with the greatest reverence, it will not only cause their body
and spirit to reach a pure and solemn state but also cause them to obtain
great virtues and good health in their next life. Their parents and families
from seven life times will be blessed with wholesome happiness and good
fortune. The merit of bathing the Buddha statue will cause them to be
free of attachments, which will facilitate their condition in attaining the
enlightenment of a Buddha.”
The merit obtained from bathing the Buddha statue will empower
everyone to increase his wisdom, good fortune and well being. We
sincerely invite all good believers to attend this wonderful event and share
the joy of the Dharma.
