Dharma Service – Three Thousand Buddhas Repentance

February 23, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Three Thousand Buddhas Repentance Dharma Service is one of the biggest Dharma Services held at Mahayana Temple. During this three-day event, Buddhists gather at the Grand Buddha Hall to pay homage to the 3,000 Buddhas of the three eons (Past Adorned Kalpa, Present Worthy Kalpa, and Future Constellation Kalpa).

In one past life of Shakyamuni Buddha, he heard the names of 53 Buddhas, and was filled with Dharma joy. He went on to teach many men, until his teachings reached 3,000 people. These 3,000 men altogether praised and single-mindedly prostrated to the 53 Buddhas. With the auspicious merits, they were able to transcend samsara, and attained Buddhahood.

Buddhists usually recite all three thousand Buddhas’ names to pray for blessings and prosperity in the New Year.
