                     Contemplation of Three Periods Dharma Function

Dana Citta Buddhist Society's annual Contemplation of Three Periods Dharma Function will be held as follows;

Date:  Saturday 3 June 2017 (农历五月初九)

Time:  9.00am to 6.00pm

Venue:  DCBS

The Dharma Function focuses on the recitation and explanation of the Amitabha Sutra as well as the recitation of the names of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and the repentance stanzas.  This memorial service essentially provides a platform for devotees to express their filial love and gratitude to their ancestors and departed loved ones.   At the same time, one may also dedicate merits to one's karmic creditors, aborted babies and wandering beings in the true spirit of repentance and universal compassion.

Besides participating in the Dharma Function, devotees may also contribute towards defraying the cost of organising the event as follows:

Major Sponsors
$300 per sponsor
Due to space constraint, we can take up to a maximum of 18 major sponsors.  Each major sponsor may put up two memorial tablets, each with one clan surname and the names of 6 departed loved ones within the clan

General Sponsors
$10.00 per name for each of the following categories:  Clan ancestors, departed loved ones, karmic creditors, aborted babies, departed pets and wandering beings

Food Sponsorship
Devotees may contribute any amount towards the food offerings as well as meals for the Sangha members and devotees
 

As DCBS is solely run by volunteers, we would like to request that all completed registrations reach us by 20 May 2017 to facilitate our preparation for the event.
 
We deeply appreciate the support from all devotees and may the merits from the Dharma Function be dedicated to the liberation of all sentient beings from suffering. Thank-you.

三时系念法会

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。
