Let us create the causes for peace in our world by reciting together the Sutra of Golden Light during the Days of Miracles, a period of holy days in the Buddhist calendar when prayers are more powerful.
Register ahead to attend on Zoom.
“The most beneficial thing to have peace and to stop the wars is recitation of the Golden Light Sutra. This is the most beneficial thing to bring peace, everyone should try to do this, no matter how busy they are, even to recite one or two pages, even a few lines. When you read the Golden Light Sutra you also read the ‘mantra without attachment’ this practice is within the text. The benefits of reciting just this mantra: Even all the material possessions, all the human wealth, especially all the wealth of the deva realms (asura’s and sura’s) can not compare to the value of this mantra. It is nothing compared to this mantra. You collect limitless skies of benefit and merit by even just reciting one word of this mantra. So by reciting the whole text is unbelievably beneficial, one collects extensive merits, liberates numberless sentient beings from the oceans of suffering and brings them to enlightenment.” – Lama Zopa Rinpoche
You can receive the oral transmission of the Sutra of Golden Light from Lama Zopa Rinpoche online. This makes your recitation even more powerful.
