The extend we go for our mothers…
100+ people came together to pray for our mothers as well as all our mothers of infinite lives.
WE LOVE YOU MOM!
Rehearsal was put together in a matter of a week.
First, leading the way, was the full time staff of BW Monastery, setting the virtual backgrounds and adjusting light in our respective homes.
Then more members joined in to form the strength of at least of 100. These community of a 100 strong will for 5 days chant and dedicate the merits to our mothers as well as pray for COVID-19 to soon pass. May all be healthy and well.
Honored to be part of this meaning project and send well wishes into the world. For the first day we chanted the Universal Gate Chapter, 88 Buddha Great Repentance Prayers and the Heart Sutra. May all be well and happy!
Names in the Dedication lists was read by 10+ members of the chanting group. These were the Mother’s Day Special Offerings done by devotees to Buddha and Bodhisattvas for our members.
This will bestow divine blessings for our mother’s health and well-being. What better way to show our love and filial piety then making this offering as a gift for our beloved Mother.
Grateful to Abbot Venerable Jing Yuan for initiating this meaningful project for us.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL AMAZING MOTHERS!
