Prize for Participation in 2023 Praying for the World Event
~ Great brilliance illuminates the world as mantra recitation resounds throughout the Dharma realms.
The True Buddha protects sentient beings by warming their hearts with compassion.
The True Buddha Foundation (TBF) is calling on True Buddha School disciples worldwide to join together in reciting the Disaster Relief Mantra. The recitation event will be held for six consecutive days from Taiwan time Sunday Dec. 25, 2022 to Friday, Dec. 30, 2022. The recitation will begin at 8:00PM each day. The merit of recitation will be dedicated as follows: "May the world be at peace and may the economy recover and prosper. May the spirits of those who died in disasters rest in peace, and may those who are suffering be relieved of their pain. May everyone everywhere have happiness, wellbeing, safety, and success in their undertakings."
Disaster Relief Mantra: ''Ta-chi-zha-zha-la。ta-chi-lu-lou-li。 ma-ha-lu-lou-li。ah-la-mo-la。duo-la。so-ha.''
Let’s pray for the world by reciting the Disaster Relief Mantra. May our prayers enter the hearts of buddhas and bodhisattvas, protecting mother earth and providing relief to those in need. May the sound of the mantra dispel rage and hostility, restoring Earth to a friendly and peaceful environment.
During the six days of recitation, let us also light lamps to pray for the world so that the world will be illuminated, darkness will be dispelled, and people’s hearts will be bright.
Let’s pray for the world and fill it with the love of the True Buddha!
