Since the founding of the Association, for the first time, the method of online Assembly was adopted to protect everyone from the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and enable everyone to obtain the merits and benefits of collective chanting of “The Amitabha Sutra” under the leading of the Teacher, Susan Duan. After the chanting was completed, when the Teacher read the names of the deceased relatives and friends whom the students and attendants wanted to dedicate the merits to, we received the warmth and strength in the Teacher ’s voice and words, feeling that the deceased whose names were read by the Teacher really got the guidance of the Amitabha and went to the Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss. They got pure peace, and there was no more pain. We really deeply touched and were so grateful to the Techer!
When the Teacher gave us instruction, she told us: "Everything starts from the heart. As long as the thought is sent out from your true heart, even if it is very small, it will exist in the universe and become strength. Only when you are moved by yourself first can others be moved by you." Thank the Teacher for teaching us that everything starts from the heart and showing us how to dedicate the merits to the sentient beings with the true heart. Because of the Teacher's sincerity, we were all deeply impressed, each had our own experience and also felt the strength of the true heart. We sincerely hoped that we can be the same as the Teacher, within our ability, do the things which benefit both oneself and others with our true heart.
