Sutra Recitations on Lord Buddha’s Descent From Tushita
Saturday 4 November @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Today we celebrate the holy day of Buddha’s Descent from Tushita Heaven, with a group recitation of the Diamond Cutter Sutra. Merit created on this day is greatly multiplied, so it’s a perfect opportunity to re-focus our Dharma practice and altruistic intention.
We will also be chanting the Heart Sutra, reciting short praises, and offering chai tea with personal and community dedications.
The recitation helps to purify one’s speech, calm and harmonise the mind, and bring the blessings of the Buddha’s wisdom. By reciting we remove obstacles and gather the inner energy and resources to be able to take teachings in person from our precious guru.
You will have the opportunity if you wish, to make special prayers for sick family members, for the success of projects and endeavours, the removal of obstacles, and the flourishing of Dharma and the resources for a meaningful life.
