To: Dear Monastics, Buddhists, and Everyone,
“Pay respectful homage to the World-Honored One – the Master has shown the way of Peace to living beings all over the planet. His loving kindness, compassion, and wisdom shine all over the directions. We express our deeply wholehearted hearts to him to be directed toward the admiration of the Master of gods and human beings.”
We know that the Sakyamuni Buddha, the Fully Enlightened One, the Founder of Buddhism, the path of awakening, enlightenment, and peace to the many right in the present life, has appeared in the world for over the past two thousand and six hundred years. Wherever Buddhism has been spread, there anciently as well as presently, a religious war has never happened. Wherever Buddhism has been present, there it contributes to bringing authentic joy, happiness, and peace to many people.
To express our gratitude to the Buddha, Pháp Nhãn Temple has a wholesome opportunity to invite the Most Venerable Monk Thích Pháp Quang, Bhante Gnanaratana, Bhante Thilakarathana, Senior Venerable Monk Thích Tâm Đạo, Thích Nhuận Tánh, Thích Quảng Chơn, Venerable Nun Hạnh Huệ, and Nun Hạnh Minh, to attend the Great Ceremony of the Vesak Day and preach the Dharma.
