Fo Guang Shan Monastery has been able to propagate the Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings through the enthusiastic support of its devotees and benefactors since its establishment. The founder, Venerable Master Hsing Yun said, “The best way to make offerings to the Triple Gem and support the monastery is to make offerings to the monastic community rather than to just one person or a small number of people; to the entire year rather than for only one meal.” In this way, we are supporting the Sangha and helping them practice and spread Buddhism.
In order to thank devotees and benefactors for their support over the year, monastics will recite the Ksitigarbha Sutra and transfer all merits to devotees and benefactors’ parents, ancestors, and loved ones during the entire seventh lunar month. Furthermore, on August 28th, the Temple will conduct the Sangha Offering Merit Dedication Service. Everyone is welcome to participate.
May all beings live without fear and coexist in peace.
