Dana Citta Buddhist Society will be organizing our annual Contemplation of Three Periods Dharma Function as follows:
Date: Saturday 15 June 2019 (农历五月十三日)
Time: 9.00am to 6.00pm
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:
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 sponsor will contribute $300.00. Due to space constraint, we can take up to 20 major sponsors only.
Devotees can put up name for memorial service in the following categories:
· Clan Ancestors
· Departed loved ones
· Karmic creditors
· Aborted babies/stillborn
· Departed pets
Each name per category is $10.00
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 1 June 2019 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.
