Amitabha Chanting for Liberating the Deceased and Benefiting Beings (Qing Ming) – 清明節法會
April 9 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Please note schedule change from April 8 (Saturday) to April 9 (Sunday)
The sangha of PTC will be making prayers and offerings for our parents, ancestors, and the deceased through a special recitation of the Amitabha sadhana with tsok offerings and aspiration prayers for the well being of ourselves and all other beings, especially those to whom we dedicate the practice by name, both living and deceased.
The practice entitled ‘Jangchok’ will be included within the chanting of the Amitabha sadhana. Jangchok is done for the benefit of the recently deceased to achieve liberation. For persons who may have passed away a long time ago the Jangchok practice will still bring great blessings to the deceased and create the causes and conditions for the liberation of the person. For the living, it is said that once their karmic debtors are liberated through this practice, the person will have less obstacles. For all beings, this practice will help to create favorable conditions and enhance their well-being.
During the chanting Lama Tsering Dakpa will bless and burn all the names of the deceased to symbolize purification of their defilements, obscurities and negative karma by the fire of wisdom, ripening their merit to be reborn in Amitabha’s pureland of Dewachen. Also included will be a dedication of merit to all sponsors and their designated names for blessing.
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.
There will be two sessions: 10:00am and 1:30pm.
This event is also being offered on Zoom. If you would like to participate, please click here.
Please do not visit the monastery if you feel unwell and/or have a fever.
We look forward to your visit when you feel better.
