The Association of Pure Buddhist(APB) held the Dharma Assembly of the Zhongyuan Festival (Ghost Festival) of chanting “Sutra of the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (the Sutra)” on August 19, 2018. At the beginning, the Teacher encouraged us to experience the depth and breadth of the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s great wishes with heart in the process of chanting. Although it’s hard for us mortal to attain the state of the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, we at least can make vows to deliver ourselves and help ourselves get rid of troubles. When our vexations are lessened, we can naturally radiate positive energy to the beings around us.
Therefore, everyone chanted the Sutra with peace of minds together, in the course of chanting, the APB study was filled with firm chanting. In the end, we dedicated all the merits of chanting the Sutra today to the Teacher’s mother and the Board Director‘s father who passed away in recent days and hoped them never fall into the three lower realms and go to the Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss. We also blessed the attendants of the Dharma Assembly and their families, and even all the beings of six realms to be free from sufferings, gain true happiness, and fulfill the accomplishment of Bodhisattva early.
