          CONTEMPLATION OF THREE PERIODS DHARMA FUNCTION

Dana Citta Buddhist Society will be organizing our annual Contemplation of Three Periods Dharma Function as follows:

Date:   Saturday 30 June 2018 (农历五月十七日)

Time:   9.00am to 6.00pm

Venue: DCBS

The main motivation of this Dharma Function is rooted in compassion and filial piety.  At the end of the event, merits will be dedicated to our ancestors, departed loved ones, karmic creditors as well as wandering beings.

On this day, Sangha members will lead the congregation in the recitation of the Amitabha Sutra and the sacred names of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, repentance stanzas, homage and offerings to the Triple Gems, and “小蒙山” which is the offering of food to the wandering beings.

We welcome everyone to attend and participate in this meritorious event.  To help defray the cost of organizing this Dharma Function, we would like to appeal for your support and generosity as follows:

Major Sponsors

Each major sponsor will be allocated two memorial tablets.  Each tablet will bear the clan ancestor surname and a maximum of six names of departed relatives within the clan.

Each major will contribute $300.00.  Due to space constraint, we can take up to 18 major sponsors only.

Sponsors

Devotees can up name for memorial service in the following categories:

·       Clan Ancestors

·       Departed loved ones

·       Karmic creditors

·       Wandering beings

·       Aborted babies/stillborn

·       Departed pets

Each name per category is $10.00

Food Offering

The funds will be used to purchase offerings as well as meals for the Sangha members and devotees.

Any amount is welcome and deeply appreciated.

As we are run wholly by volunteers, we seek your understanding and cooperation to submit the completed forms to us by 16 June 2018 to facilitate our preparations.  If you would like to refer to your records from the previous year, do get in touch with any of our committee members.  Thank-you.

                           时系念法会

“三时系念”是净土法门殊胜的行持之一,由元朝中峰国师所倡导,主要在

规劝生者及亡者忏除罪业,对佛法信受奉行,时时系念阿弥陀佛名号,与

弥陀愿力相应,才能得以往生极乐净土,永离茫茫业海與生死轮回之苦。

法事不仅用來超度亡者,生者更為受用,可说是冥阳皆利。
