VESAK DAY CELEBRATION
of the most important events in the year for the Buddhist community is the
observance of Vesak. This is where Lord Buddha Sakyamuni’s birth, enlightenment
and parinirvana all fall on the full moon of the lunar month, 13 May 2014.
this day, Buddhists take part in the ceremonial bathing of the statue of baby
Prince Siddhartha. A small standing statue of prince is placed in a basin of
perfumed water strewn with flowers. Buddhists scoop the perfumed water with a
ladle and pour it over the statue. This act of bathing symbolizes the
purification of one’s unwholesome actions. Besides being a festival for
rejoicing and making offerings to the Triple Gems, it is also an occasion for
reflecting on our personal spiritual development.

SHER NYING DUD DHOG (Dispelling Obstacles through Prajna Paramita)
Date & Time: 01 Jun 2014 (Sunday, 10am – 12pm, 2pm – 5pm)
Sher Nying Dud Dhog is known as "Dispelling
Obstacles through Prajna Paramita". "Sher" means "Paramita",
"Nying" means "Essence",
"Dud" means "Maras"
and "Dhog" means "Obstacles".
the time of Sakyamuni Buddha, there was a Hariti (known as the mother of
bhutas) and her five hundred sons. In order to feed her sons, she would abduct
and killed the human's children. Buddha knew about it, stole one of her son and
hid him under his rice bowl. She realized that one of her son was missing and
went desperately throughout the universe to search for him. Finally, she went
to the Buddha and pleaded for his help. The Buddha pointed out that she was
suffering because she had lost one of her sons and asked if she could imagine
the suffering of parents whose only child had been devoured. She replied
contritely that their suffering must be many times greater than hers, and vowed
not to abduct or killed the children and pleaded with Buddha to return her
missing son. Hariti was also worried that without food, her sons would be
hungry. Buddha knowing this, took out the leftover food from his rice bowl and
gently pressed it together to form the imprint of his 5 fingers, blessed it and
gave it to Hariti to release the hunger of her sons. Buddha also mentioned that
he will preach the offering of "len-chang"
which mean the leftover portion of the food, as an offering to Hariti and her
five hundred sons and hope that they will not cause harm to the human again.
The benefits of this puja are:
1. To reverse diseases and harms generally
2. To remove obstacles like bad dreams, bad signs and omens
Interested participants are requested to bring fingernail cutting, a small piece of fabric worn by the
participant and strands of hair.
