In China, the prayer for the deceased was originated from Emperor Liang Wu Di. It is said that his wife, Empress Chi, was a jealous person when she was alive and was reborn into the lower realms as a snake after passing away. One day, she appeared in the palace to seek help from Emperor Liang (Wu Di). Emperor Liang immediately approached Dharma Master Zhi Gong for help. Thus, Dharma Master Zhi Gong composed the《Emperor Liang's Treasury of Repentance》and conducted a Dharma ceremony. Finally, Empress Chi was extricated from the animal realm and reborn in the heavenly realm. Since the offerings of vegetarian food were for the sentient beings who inhabited the water and land, the ceremony eventually developed into a prayer ceremony for the spirits. Many people take the chance to set up "Rebirth Tablet" for their late relatives, friends and ancestors, during the ceremony that is held in the monastery. They also seek blessings for their living relatives and friends.
For the benefit of all devotees, the Bliss & Wisdom Sangha will conduct a three-day "Spring Sutra Chanting Ceremony" from 12 May 2016 to 14 May 2016 in Taiwan. We welcome everyone to participate in this event for cultivating blessings for our relatives, friends and ancestors. Master Venerable Jih-Chang decided on the chanting of the《Perfection of Wisdom Sutra (Mahāprajñāpāramitā Sutra)》. With the strengths from the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Dharma and Sangha, as well as, everyone's sincerity, he hoped to achieve the effects of benefiting both the deceased and the living — late relatives, friends and ancestors will be extricated from the miserable realms, reborn in the happy realms and gain protection from the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas; the living relatives and friends are free of karmic obstacles and illnesses, enjoy increase of happiness and wisdom, be well and safe at every moment.
You can submit the "online application for dedication of merits" to the monastery with effect from today. The closing date is 13 May 2016, 5:30pm.
From 12 May 2016 to 14 May 2016, the monastery will also provide online access to the Chanting Prayer and dedicate the merits of the ceremony, so as to let devotees who are unable to attend the ceremony to have the chance to create this splendid collective karma. For every living person whose name is on the name list for dedication of merits, the Bliss & Wisdom Sangha will supplicate for "the eradication of karmic obstacles and illnesses, healthy body and mind, safety for the whole family, increase of happiness and wisdom". For the deceased, Bliss and Wisdom Sangha will supplicate for "advantageous rebirths in the happy realms, increase of merits and wisdom". The application for this event is completely free.
