Invitation Letter of the Great Ceremony of VU LAN Online 2564 – 2020

Pháp Nhãn Temple

Namo The Original Master Sakyamuni Buddhaya

To: Dear Monastics, lay Buddhists, and everyone,

Discourse on Showing Great Gratitude to Parents states: “On the Full Moon Day of yearly lunar July, people with filial piety and deep gratitude have to repay their parents.” Indeed, when the Vu Lan Ceremonial Season comes, everyone spends their free time going to the Temple so that they can practice the Buddhadharma and attend the Vu Lan Ceremony together happily.

The Vu Lan is the most important Spiritual Cultural Festival yearly to Vietnamese Buddhists, consisting of the following events: The first is praying blessings for the living parents arousing virtuous merit and longevity. The second is praying blessings for those who passed away were born up to a peaceful realm. The third is praying blessings for oneself and for others getting peaceful joy and happiness, and the fourth is praying blessings for the world peace, people obtaining peaceful joy. Through learning, understanding, practicing, spreading, and applying the Dharma into our daily lives, we can enjoy flowers and fruits of the Dharma pleasure for ourselves and for others right here and right now in the present life.

This year, because pandemic spreads everywhere, to contribute to preventing epidemics, Pháp Nhãn Temple will hold the ONLINE VU LAN – Parents’ Day Ceremony on Sunday, September 6, 2020. Please send your dead loved Ones’ names or your living loved Ones’ names to the Temple at the address above so that the Temple can chant and pray peace for them all.

Wholeheartedly praying for effectively early vaccines to treat this pandemic quickly being ended.
