On May 16, 2021, FGS Temple of Toronto will commemorate the joyous occasion of Buddha’s birth and International Buddha’s Light Day (Fo Guang Shan’s 55th Anniversary). At 10:00 am there will be an online “Bathing Buddha Dharma Service”, followed at 7:00 pm by a “Global Simultaneous Sutra Transcription Event”. The merits of bathing the Buddha will be dedicated to all beings. Our own defilements of greed, hatred and anger will be purified. We will pray for peace and harmony in our lives and on Earth. May Buddha bless everyone and keep them healthy and safe. The service will be online and everyone is welcome to participate in this wondrous practice of repentance. For more information, please visit www.fgs.ca.

 

Gatha for Bathing the Buddha
I now sincerely bathe all Tathagatas,
Gaining merits of pure wisdom and majesty.
May beings be free from defilements in all,
Thereby attain Tathagata's pure Dharma body.
