To celebrate the holy birthday of Medicine Buddha who eradicates disasters and prolongs life spans of beings
Medicine Buddha, also called the Medicine Master, Tathagata of Vaidurya Light is the founder of the Eastern Paradise of Vaidurya which is an adorned land full of bliss. When Medicine Buddha practiced the Bodhisattva path in the past, he made 12 great vows to relieve the sufferings from sicknesses for living beings so they can develop the root of kindness which will lead them to liberation.
We are delighted that the holy birthday of the Medicine Master, Tathagatha of Vaidurya Light is approaching. On Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 9:30 a.m., a Medicine Buddha Dharma Assembly will be held in the Sakyamuni Buddha Hall at Hua Zang Si in San Francisco. It will be jointly conducted by the World Buddhism Association Headquarters, Hua Zang Si and Sanger Mission.
We will recite respectfully The Sutra of the Merit and Virtue of the Past Vows of Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata. The Lamps of Brightness for blessings will be lit and Meal Offerings to Buddhas will be practiced. It is our hope that the merit accrued from the dharma assembly will increase the good fortune and wisdom of all beings, eradicate their sicknesses and disasters, and purify their karmic hindrances. We will pray for world peace and safety of our country. We welcome all good believers in ten directions to the event and share the Dharma benefit.
