Celebrating the 77th Birthday of HH Living Buddha Lian-sheng,
Happy Birthday, Grandmaster!
The 77th birthday of True Buddha School Root Lineage Guru Dharma King Lian-sheng is fast approaching!
This year, the Guru Buddha’s birthday falls on the same day in the lunar and the solar calendar. In other words, May 18th of the lunar calendar just happens to be June 27th of the solar calendar.
The “77” of the Guru Buddha’s 77th birthday represents double auspiciousness!
To celebrate the Guru Buddha’s birthday, the True Buddha Foundation has arranged a series of activities: 108 collective recitations of the True Buddha Sutra; 24 hour non-stop recitation of the Longevity Buddha Heart Mantra; encouraging every cultivation venue in the world to light 77 lamps; single mindedly praying for Guru Buddha to stay in the world; and dedicating all the merit to the health, longevity, happiness, and non-hindrance of the Guru Buddha to provide good fortune and happiness to infinite sentient beings.
This year’s birthday cake will be different.
Grandmaster said that the True Buddha Sutra is a revelation from the heart, an intuitive realization through entering the ocean of Vairocana, and a transforming wish-fulfilling jewel. It illuminates sentient beings and is magnificent. If sentient beings have faith in it, they will gain infinite merit.
On the occasion of the birthday of the Guru Buddha, we are asking True Buddha School disciples worldwide to collectively perform 108 recitations of the True Buddha Sutra and dedicate the merit to the Guru Buddha. Participation in this activity is equivalent to offering the Guru Buddha 108 marvelous and incomparable wish-fulfilling jewels.
The melody of Happy Birthday will resonate around the world this year.
It is stated in the Buddhist scripture that by reciting the Amitayus Mantra, one can extend one’s lifespan, increase good fortune and wisdom, eradicate negative karma, achieve the accomplishment of immortality, or gain rebirth in the Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss. By practicing Longevity Buddha, one can eradicate illnesses, increase longevity and good fortune, enhance virtuous affinities, eradicate evil affinities, and lengthen life for worldly undertakings.
We are asking True Buddha disciples to unitedly make a relay effort to recite the Amitayus Heart Mantra for 24 hours, invoke and offer Amitayus with this collective mind power, and pray that the Guru Buddha will enjoy good health and longevity, be happy and unhindered, turn the Dharma wheel forever, and benefit and bliss infinite sentient beings.
Let this year’s candles shine even brighter. Light up every cultivation venue in the world with 77 heart lamps and the hearts of the five million disciples.
We are asking True Buddha School cultivation venues worldwide to light 77 heart lamps to supplicate the Guru Buddha to stay in the world. In this way, disciples show their gratitude to the Guru Buddha for transmitting the supreme True Buddha Tantric Dharma and bringing infinite light to this saha world.
May the heart lamps of the True Buddha lineage always shine and the True Buddha lineage continue forever.
May the light in the hearts of 5 million disciples shine with the radiance of the Guru Buddha. May the darkness of ignorance be dispersed, and may light shine throughout the world, illuminating the souls of sentient beings.
Grandmaster, we love you! ❤️ 愛してる ❤️ Happy Birthday! ❤️
