Merit created on this day is greatly multiplied, so it’s a perfect opportunity to re-focus our Dharma practice and altruistic intention. No need to book, just come along!

Sutra Recitation for BUDDHA’S BIRTHDAY

A short recitation of the Diamond Cutter Sutra and lots of light offerings on this special Buddhist day, SAKA DAWA – Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and parinirvana! This short recitation helps to purify one’s speech, calm and harmonise the mind, and bring the blessings of the Buddha’s wisdom directly into one’s heart. We will also have a chance to bathe the Baby Buddha, a practice that helps to cleanse all negativities and sufferings of oneself and others.

Diamond Cutter Sutra Recitation

Join in the community recitation of the Diamond Cutter Sutra, especially powerful as today is a special Buddha Day and the anniversary of Milarepa. Remove the causes of confusion and plant the seeds of wisdom in your mind. Lama Zopa Rinpoche says that even just hearing about emptiness, even with a mind of confusion, is like an atom bomb to the delusions!
