Announcement for Oct 9, 2022, The Great Compassion Repentance Dharma Service
Dear Members and Devotees:
Fo Guang Shan San Bao Temple, Fo Guang Temple will be conducting The Great Compassion Repentance Dharma Service on Oct 9 at 10:00 am online.
We welcome everyone to participate and pay homage to the Buddha!
The 2022 Ullambana Festival (the month of filial piety) is approaching soon. To emulate the Arhat Maudgalyayana’s memorialization of his mother and promote the virtue of filial piety and repaying kindness, Northern California Fo Guang Shan Temples will be conducting the Filial Piety Emperor Liang Repentance Dharma Service from July 28–July 31 (Real-time online broadcasting). Merits gained from these Dharma services will be dedicated to the ancestors and departed loved ones so that they may be reborn in the Buddha’s pure land. This is also a good opportunity to repent transgressions, purify the minds, and nurture wisdom.
May the Triple Gems bless the society with peace and harmony and bless you and your family with safety and auspiciousness!
The schedule for the Emperor Liang Repentance Dharma Service is as follows:
I now sincerely bathe all the Tathagatas,
As pure wisdom adorns the ocean of merits.
May sentient beings distance themselves from defilements,
And realize the pure Dharma body of the Tathagatas.
Buddhists go to the temple to bathe the Buddha on Buddha’s Birthday every year, in hope to purify their mind through the actions of bathing the Buddha. Also, following the Buddha, they learn to be more compassionate, more patient, more peaceful and learn to serve and help others.
Fo Guang Shan San Bao Temple and Buddha’s Light Temple will be hosting the Buddha’s Bathing Dharma Service on May 8 (Sun) at 10:30 am online. We welcome everyone to participate and pray homage to the Buddha.
Also, San Bao Temple will be opened to the Fo Guang members for bathing the Buddha on May 8 from 10 am to 3 pm and on May 10-14 from 10 am to 3 pm. Please wear a face mask and follow the guidance and instruction when you come. Thank you for your cooperation!

The 56th Fo Guang Shan Anniversary – Simultaneous Global Sutra Transcription Cultivation
Auspicious greetings to all devotees,
The anniversary of the founding of Fo Guang Shan, which is also Buddha’s Light Day, falls on May 16th every year. The power of Venerable Master’s vows accomplished the Fo Guang Shan that is today. Throughout Venerable Master’s life of Dharma propagation, he hoped that everyone can emulate the actions of the Buddha, and practice the Three Acts of Goodness, Four Givings, Five Harmonies, and Six Paramitas. He encourages us to take patience as our strength, not to forget our initial vows, develop kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity, and enlighten ourselves and others.
Fo Guang Shan San Bao Temple set May 15, Sunday 4 pm to commence live stream of the virtual Global Sutra Transcription Cultivation.
