Report from the Manjusri Bodhisattva’s Birthday Ceremony

On the auspicious sunny day, a grand celebration of the Holy Birthday of Manjusri Bodhisattva has been held by Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi at the Guanyin Holy Mountain. Attendees were all grateful in receiving this precious Dharma teaching.

The Honorable Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi imparted his teaching to his followers, revealing the predestination between Manjusri Bodhisattva and Exalted Shakyamuni Buddha:
Where is the Pure Land?
Who will have the fortuity to be born in the illuminated Pure Land?
How can Dharma help people become born into the illuminated Pure Land?

The compassionate Holy Master urged his followers to cherish their lives for doing something meaningful, and not try to waste time, because the chance of listening to the righteous Dharma, practice the Dharma, and accumulate their merit is priceless.

All attendees were deeply touched by Holy Master’s teaching. With gratitude in their hearts, they answer the calls of His Holiness, devoting themselves to developing the Guanyin Holy Mountain. Their goal is simple: to develop a place where people can learn and practice the Dharma, and promote the mission of Guang Huan Mi Zong – Human Health, World Peace and Religious Harmony.

On the date of April 5th, 2020, the ceremonies were held at three locations: Guang Huan Mi Zong Holy Mountain Buddha Land, Guanyin Holy Mountain, and Hong Kong Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Temple. These rituals were intended for all the deceased medical workers and patients, with no distinction to nationality, as well as sending blessings and prayers to all beings in the world.
