15 Days of Miracles-Merrit Multiplying Days

The Sutra of Golden Light Recitation from Home

On Friday, February 16,  Losar (Tibetan New year) marks the beginning the 15 days of miracles, a period when the Buddha performed many miracles to benefit others. This is a highly auspicious time and any merit incurred on these days is said to be magnified by 100 million times. Merit is imprints of positive actions, which will result in happiness in the future.

Please join us from your home to recite sections of The Golden Light Sutra for each of the 15 days of Miracles.

Here is the Sutra

Here is the transmition from Lama Zopa Rinpoche

You may wish to receive the oral transmission before reciting the sutra. Receiving the Oral Transmission of the Sutra makes the recitation of the Sutra much more powerful, and in future lives we will realize this meaning of the Sutra very easily. The transmission is quite long so we reccomend listening to it in several segents a few days before you commence the recitation on Feb 16th.
 


Lama Zopa Rinpoche, urges us to recite the Sutra of Golden Light for these reasons:

Here is a set of pages to read

per day

“The holy Golden Light Sutra is the king of the sutras. It is extremely powerful and fulfills all one’s wishes, as well as bringing peace and happiness for all sentient beings, up to enlightenment. It is also extremely powerful for world peace, for your own protection, and for the protection of the country and the world. Also, it has great healing power for people in the country.  … Anyone can read this text, Buddhists and even non-Buddhists who desire world peace. This also protects individuals and the country from what are labeled natural disasters of the wind element, fire element, earth element, and water element, such as earthquakes, floods, cyclones, fires, tornadoes, etc. They are not natural because they come from causes and conditions that make dangers happen. They come from past inner negative thoughts and actions of people, and from external conditions. The benefits of reading this sutra are immeasurable … reciting just a few lines of  the Sutra of Golden Light creates more merit than making … immeasurable offerings to the Buddha. Reciting this sutra directs one’s life towards enlightenment. There is so much merit … one’s life becomes so easy, whatever one wishes for one receives … there is unbelievable purification … one liberates numberless sentient beings from the oceans of samsaric suffering and brings them to enlightenment.”
