LONG LIFE PRAYERS & LÜD TANGWA
Date: 07 Feb 2016 (Sunday, Chinese New Year Eve)
(9.30am-11.30am, 1pm to 3pm, 11pm-12am)
Amitayus Long Life Prayer (9am to 11.30am)
Amitayus Buddha (the Buddha of
long life, merits and wisdom) is considered the Sambhogakaya aspect of the
widely known Amitabha Buddha. The main
practice of Amitayus is to prolong or extend one's lifespan. Longevity is seen as a contributing condition
that will allow us more time and opportunity to practice the Dharma so that we
can fulfill our true human potential - the achievement of ultimate happiness.
It is therefore very important to do the Amitayus Long-life practice.
Tangwa (1pm to 3pm)
The ritual of Lüd Tangwa is
performed to eradicate untimely death due to obstacles caused by evil spirits
& other negativities. During this ritual, participants will place their cut
nails, hair, unwashed worn clothing, len-chag
(a type of mold used for rubbing on unwell body parts) into a receptacle (Lüd) containing a figurine of a human
being. The figurine actually represents the obstacles and negativities of
participants, just like the various substances that we place into the Lüd.
Other offerings like food and etc are also placed into the Lüd, with the aim of pacifying the evil
spirits and other negativities.
Traditionally, at the end of
this ritual, the Lüd will be thrown
at crossroads, but due to legal constraints here, the Lüd will be burnt or sent away instead, thus eliminating all causes
of untimely death.
