Join in the community recitation of the Sutra of Golden Light. The recitation helps to purify ones’ speech, calm and harmonise the mind, and bring the blessings of the Buddhas directly into your own environment. This sutra has a very powerful effect in creating harmony between neighbours and community, and pacifying destructive politics and climate change.
Today is a special Buddha Day so all actions done with a positive motivation have incredible power to bring far-reaching and beneficial results. The afternoon will be a leisurely recitation, with time for several breaks, with delicious chai and refreshments, and a chance to catch up with your Dharma buddies! At the end we make individual dedications, and dedications for world harmony and peace.
We will also recite the much shorter Diamond Cutter Sutra, especially dedicated to the health and long life of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, along with the Praise to Dependent Arising. Both of these texts have been recommended by Khandro-la as being very beneficial in removing obstacles to our precious guru’s health and long life. By reciting we remove obstacles and gather the inner energy and resources to be able to take teachings in person from our precious guru.
