Pictures of VU LAN-Parents’ Day at Pháp Nhãn Temple

Pháp Nhãn Temple        Ven. Thích Trừng Sỹ

Dear Monastic, lay Buddhists, and everyone,
We respectfully hear that:
“Each year, lunar July, the full Moon Day
The filial children diligently say well-being prayers;
Praying for parents to live long
Instructing children and grandchildren to take refuge in peacefulness together.”
Indeed, yearly, when the great Ceremony of Vu Lan – Parents’ Day, the Buddha’s children, despite living in different countries, spend the appropriate time going to the Temple for Dharma learning and Dharma practice, and attending the great Ceremony of Vu Lan joyfully.
We know that VU LAN, the most important Spiritual Cultural Festival to the Buddha’s disciples, includes the following events:
The first is to pray for the current parents to increase virtuous blessing and longevity.
The second is to pray for those who passed away will be born up to a peaceful realm.
The third is the effort to develop the learning and practice of the Buddha Dharma and the protection of the Three Jewels in the Vassa Vassa – Summer Retreat of lay devotees and monastic people.
The fourth is to pray for world peace and for people to obtain joy and happiness
The fifth is the Ceremony of Offering Ca-sa Kathina robes to the Sangha after completing the annual Vassa Vassa – Summer Retreat.
Through cultivating, learning, applying, and practicing the Buddha Dharma into our daily lives, we can enjoy reaping the flowers and fruits of peacefulness and happiness for ourselves and for other people right here and right now in the present life.
Below are pictures of the great Ceremony of VU LAN- Parents’ Day of Pháp Nhãn Temple this year.
You are cordially invited to open and see them happily.
