 ULLAMBANA – CELEBRATING FILIAL LOVE, GRATITUDE AND COMPASSION

Based on the Ullambana Sutra, the full moon day of the seventh lunar month is known as the “Buddha’s Joyous Day” on account of Moggallāna’s filial piety in liberating his late mother from great suffering in the realm of hungry ghosts.

Dana Citta Buddhist Society will be organising the following events to celebrate the great virtues of filial love, gratitude and compassion as expounded in the Ullambana Sutra:

 

1) Offerings to the Sangha Community

We will be visiting several monasteries and nunneries to make offerings of basic necessities to the monks and nuns residing there:

Date:                                 Saturday 18 Aug 2018 (农历七月初八)

Time:                                9.00am to 3.00pm

Meeting Place    :              DCBS

Due to limited seating capacity (38 pax) in the bus, please register with Bro Lorenzo (HP 8188-7367) on a first-come first-serve basis.  To help defray the cost of the transportation and lunch for the participants as well as for the purchase of offerings for the Sangha members, we will be collecting a token of $50.00 per participant. 

 

2)  Recitation of Ullambana Sutra

Venerable Kuanjing will lead the service for the recitation of the Ullambana Sutra as follows:

Date;                                   Saturday 25 Aug 2018 (农历七月十五日)

Time      :                             8.00pm to 9.30pm

Venue    :                             DCBS

 

3)  Birthday of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva – Memorial Service

In conjunction with the birthday of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, DCBS will be holding a Dharma event focussing on the recitation of the Sutra on the Fundamental Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva as follows:

Date      :                             Saturday 8 Sep 2018 (农历七月二十九日)

Time      :                             9.00am to 6.00pm

Venue    :                             DCBS

Food offerings will be made and merits dedicated to all our clan ancestors, departed loved ones, karmic creditors as well as wandering beings.

 

We look forward to your support and participation. If you would like to contribute towards the offerings for the above events, please get in touch with any committee members.  Any amount is welcome and deeply appreciated. Thank-you.

 盂兰盆节 — 弘扬孝亲,报恩,行善的节日

《佛说盂兰盆经》中讲述了目连为解救饿鬼道的母亲,遵佛旨意,在农历七月十五日(佛欢喜日)供僧济众,承三宝功德力,目连最终救母超脱恶道。盂兰盆节就是由此而来。这部经典弘扬的是孝道精神,故有孝经之敬称。
