 WELCOMING YEAR OF THE EARTH PIG

Dana Citta Buddhist Society wishes everyone a joyous Lunar New Year filled with blessings of prosperity, good health, longevity, happiness and success.

 

Medicine Buddha Light Offering

A good start to the Year of the Pig begins with the auspicious light offering to the Medicine Buddha.  Each image of the Medicine Buddha will bear the name of the sponsor and with a lamp lighted up throughout the entire year for abundant blessings.  We are collecting a token of $50.00 per name and $200.00 per company per year as these collections will help to defray the operating cost of our premises.

 

Birthday of Maitreya Buddha

The first day of the Lunar New Year is also the birthday of Maitreya Buddha, more commonly known as the “Laughing Buddha”.  To welcome the new year and to commemorate the birthday of Maitreya Buddha, DCBS will be holding a New Year service as follows:

Date:  Tuesday 5 Feb 2019 (农历正月初一)

Time:  9.30am to 12.00noon

 

Diamond Repentance Sutra Service

Every month, a service on a repentance sutra will be held and the merits dedicated to the sponsors of the Medicine Buddha light offering.   The session for February will focus on the Diamond Repentance Sutra and will be held as follows:

Date:  Saturday 9 Feb 2019 (农历正月初五)

Time:  9.00am to 1.00pm
