Pháp Nhãn Temple
Namo The Original Master Sakyamuni Buddhaya
To: Dear Monastics, Buddhists, and Everyone,
“Pay respectful homage to the World-Honored One – the Master has shown the way of Peace to living beings all over the planet. His loving-kindness, compassion, and wisdom shine all over the directions. We express our deeply wholehearted hearts to him to be directed toward the admiration of the Master of gods and human beings.”
We know that the Sakyamuni Buddha, the Fully Enlightened One, the Founder of Buddhism, the path of awakening, enlightenment, and peace to the many right in the present life, has appeared in the world for over the past two thousand and six hundred years. Wherever Buddhism has been present, there it contributes to bringing authentic joy, happiness, and peace to many people.
In the past 2020, because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, works in social activities in general and religions in particular, all stopped being inactive. In 2021, thanks to the Pfizer and Modena vaccines being popularly applied in the United States, over a quarter of the population, people, communities, and societies start to return to their activities gradually.
To celebrate the Great Ceremony of the Buddha’s Birthday this year, Pháp Nhãn Temple has enough wholesome conditions to invite the Most Venerable, senior Venerable, Buddhist and non-Buddhist followers coming to the Temple to attend this great event. We are very happy to welcome you all.
