09/02/2020 – Commemoration of Buddha’s Joyful Day

09/02/2020 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am

September 2, 2020 (Wednesday)

The observance of Buddha’s Joyful Day on the full moon day of the seventh lunar month is based on the story of Maudgalyayana, a disciple of the Buddha. Buddha’s Joyful Day is observed by making offerings of necessities to monastics, reciting sūtras and performing acts of generosity. The merit from these deeds is dedicated to all beings, especially to relieve the suffering of the deceased.

It is said that, “no matter how long ago your deceased dear ones or relatives have passed away, it is still very vital to make prayers and offerings for them to increase their merit.”

You may donate any amount and provide us with the names for dedication (both living and deceased).  To make these dedications, download the Amitabha Sadhana Dedication Form in Chinese and English.
