Beseeching the Buddha to Live Long

True Buddha School chapters around the world to hold ceremonies on September 14 simultaneously, dedicating merits to wish for the stay of Buddha in the world

In Grandmaster`s recent works, he hinted at a wish to enter nirvana and return to Buddha land.

True Buddha Foundation would like everyone to take heed of Samantabhadra Boddhisattva`s great vow of ` Beseeching The Buddha To Live Long`.

Beseeching The Awakened Ones To Live Long
Those who might wish to pass into the Traceless,
with palm to palm, I beseech you to yet remain,
for eons as many as the atoms of all the Fields,
for the joy and benefit of all beings.

Hence, True Buddha Foundation is appealing to all True Buddha chapters to simultaneously hold a `Padmakumara Blessing and Eradication of Disaster ceremony` or `Padmakumara Blessing and Eradication of Disaster Homa Ceremony` on September 14, 2003 (the Sunday after Mooncake Festival). It is hoped that each country`s True Buddha Tantric Association or Lei Zang Temples would guide everyone in the praying for the stay of Buddha in samsara.

Before the ceremony, it is hoped that everyone will chant `Padmakumara Heart Mantra` 100,000 times as well as dedicate merits to Grandmaster, wishing that he will always stay in samsara. With the blessing and protection of all Buddhas, Boddhisattvas, Dharma Protectors, may Grandmaster enjoy good health and longevity, and not enter nirvana.
