Living Buddha Lian-sheng Donated to Taiwan Earthquake Relief Efforts

Taiwan experienced a devastating earthquake
HH Living Buddha Lian-sheng promptly donated NT $3 million to assist in post-disaster relief efforts

The True Buddha Foundation is calling on everyone to collectively recite the Disaster Relief Mantra and dedicate the merit to Taiwan earthquake disaster relief.

On April 3rd, at 7:58 AM, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck the eastern coast of Taiwan. The epicenter, which was located in Hualien County, had a maximum seismic intensity of 6. This is the strongest earthquake since the “921” earthquake 25 years ago. Aftershocks continue to occur, with the Central Weather Administration's Seismological Center predicting aftershocks over the next 3-4 days ranging in magnitude from 6.5 to 7.0 .

The catastrophe has been constantly unfolding since April 3. Several residential buildings in Hualien, the earthquake’s epicenter, have collapsed. In Yilan County, the massive cliff at the head of Guishan Island, which resembles a turtle, crumbled. Rockslides along the Central Cross-Island Highway have left a number of people stranded inside tunnels, awaiting rescue. Additionally, reports of disasters are emerging from various locations.
According to the Central Emergency Operation Center, as of 8AM on April 5, the powerful 7.2-magnitude quake in Hualien has left 10 dead, 1,106 injured, and 705 trapped nationwide. The number of missing persons has risen to 18, including four foreigners: an Indian, a Canadian, and two Australians. Rescue teams have been dispatched to search for them along the Shakadang Trail.

Let’s join together to recite the Disaster Relief Mantra and dedicate the merit of recitation to Taiwan’s earthquake disaster relief operations.

May the victims who have lost their lives be reborn in the Pure Land.
May the injured receive the best medical care and recover quickly.
May those who are missing be swiftly located.
May the aftershocks subside and reconstruction efforts in disaster-stricken areas proceed smoothly without a hitch.

The Disaster Relief Mantra:
"Ta-chi-zha-zha-la。ta-chi-lu-lou-li。 ma-he-lu-lou-li。a-la-mo-la。duo-la。so-ha."

Om, guru, lian-sheng, siddhi, hum.
