Celebration of Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu’s 36th Anniversary of Ordination
Lighting a Lamp for Grandmaster and Reciting the Longevity Buddha Mantra Event
March 6-13, 2022
“The ordination of Living Buddha Lian-sheng symbolizes a body that, after 100 years of asceticism, has entirely entered the Bodhi realm. Wholeheartedly wishing to spiritually travel through the lotus realms, sit on a lotus platform, observe the buddha nature, and be unhindered.
The ordination of Living Buddha Lian-sheng means seeing through a century-old dream of the mundane world. There is no place that can be called one’s real home. Wishing worldly people will soon be awakened, begin practicing as soon as possible, and find the home of self-nature.
The ordination of Living Buddha Lian-sheng means becoming a teacher in heaven and of mankind, a cool man. Cutting attachment to the mundane world, realizing absolute truth, and accompanying sun and moon.
The ordination of Living Buddha Lian-sheng is a vast and complete journey, precisely the journey of patriarchs of all generations. It signifies the immeasurable holy body and the meaning of all truth.”
The tenth day of the second month of the lunar calendar in 2022 is the 36th anniversary of the renunciation of the Root Lineage Guru His Holiness Living Buddha Lian-sheng of the True Buddha School (TBS). Out of gratitude for Grandmaster Lu′s great vows, the True Buddha Foundation (TBF) will hold a Lighting a Lamp for Grandmaster and Reciting the Longevity Buddha Mantra for Buddha to Stay in the World Event.
On March 6, 2022 (Sunday) at the Great White Padmakumara Homa Ceremony, Rainbow Temple in Seattle will hold a ceremony of Lighting Lamps for Grandmaster and Supplicating Buddha to Stay in the World.
During March 6-12, 2022 (7 days) we are asking worldwide TBS cultivation venues and disciples to light lamps for Grandmaster and recite the Supplication for Buddha to Stay in the World and the Longevity Buddha Mantra.
On March 13, 2022 (Sunday), the overall merit dedication will be performed at the Amoghapasa Bodhisattva Homa Ceremony at Rainbow Temple in Seattle. Cultivation venues and disciples are welcome to attend and register for the ceremony and collectively dedicate the merit to TBS Root Lineage Guru HH Living Buddha Lian-sheng to stay in the world for a long, long time, turn the Dharma wheel, and live in the world in health and happiness!

I pay homage and supplicate Grand Master, the virtuous and marvelous Tantrika, All Buddhas of the Ten Directions of the Buddhalands as numerous as grains of sand, All Bodhisattvas who are full of compassion toward all sentient beings, All Herukas, Dharmapalas and Dakinis, protectors of Dharma. The nights are long, the three poisons are proliferating. My body and soul are stricken, tumbling in the misery of perpetual rebirth. With great compassion, Grandmaster came to this world to salvage the deluded ones. Henceforth, the Three Treasures emanate wondrous light to provide refuge for all. All fortunate beings, humans and those in the heavens, rely on his Vajra Body For the bestowal of teachings, vows, precepts, empowerment, and attainments. We, the disciples of Buddha, plead for you to stay in the Saha World to turn the Dharma Wheel. To benefit and give happiness to multitudes of sentient beings.
Longevity Buddha Heart Mantra: "「Om。ah-ma-re-ni。zu- wen-di-ye。so-ha。」”
We welcome all cultivation venues and fellow disciples to send photos or videos (made within 1 minute of lighting up the heart lamp) to the TBF Publication Department for the purpose of making commemorative videos. https://forms.gle/65cDi6afLQhsDySA6
