Our biggest dharma event of the year, the Emperor Liang Repentance Ceremony, is here! The ceremony will commence on Dec 1st and end on Dec 7th, with the Yogacara Ulka-Mukha (Flaming Mouth) deliverance ritual taking place on Dec 8th. We are very happy that Vajra Masters Lian Moon and Lian Chuan from Seattle will conduct these ceremonies.
The participation of Emperor Liang Repentance is much like our monthly True Buddha Repentance. Overall, it involves worshiping prostrations for each chant of the buddhas’ names. There are 1,275 buddhas in all ten scrolls of the text. Between the sets of prostrations, we also chant the scriptures on our knees. Through the reading of the sins we committed in the past (current or previous lives) and the miserable consequences we are reaping, we pray for cleansing and forgiveness. Each scroll (or session) lasts about two hours. Please refer to the complete schedule for ceremony times.
There will also be two fire offering ceremonies (11/30 & 12/7). Everyone is cordially invited to join .
We will also have feng-shui consultation on 12/29, and spiritual consultation on 12/5. Please call the temple if interested. On 11/28 we will have a Thanksgiving/Welcome dinner. And on 12/25 there will be a holiday potluck.
It is a huge expense to host a weeklong program. While all the activities are free and monetary offerings always voluntary, we express our greatest gratitude to those who are willing to contribute a greater share to support our events. The sponsorships for this year are as follows:
