On December 1st, the Association held the Dharma Assembly of chanting the three chapters of “Avatamsaka Sutra” : “Pure Conduct, Brahma Conduct and Discourse on Samantabhadra's Beneficence Aspirations ”to celebrate the second anniversary of the Association and the fifth anniversary of the Classroom.
This lecture, the Teacher gave the speech on chapter 6 “The Praise of the Tathagata” of the “Sutra of the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva” which not only demonstrates the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s compassion and convenience to enlighten the sentient beings with the dialogue between the Bodhisattva named Universally Vast and the Shakyamuni Buddha, but also gives a convenient way for the sentient beings of all kinds of needs (for example, women who don’t want to be born again as a woman, women who want to be a good-looking woman, people who have long-term illness, people who are in horror because of dreaming ghosts and spirits, people who are born as slaves or painful people in a state of non-freedom, and people who have newborns at home) to get rid of difficulties or getting peace and happiness.
On October 13 and 14, the Association of Pure Buddhist(APB) held its first trip of two-day and one-night for the annual work conference, meditation and autumn viewing.
On Sunday of September, the Class A gave the Teacher a special surprise in their class and wished the Teacher a Happy Teacher’s Day. It seemed that the Teacher was surprised!
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.
