Maitreya Buddha New Year Blessing

The ox has its special place in Ch'an Buddhism. The famous "Ten Ox Herding" pictures describe the Zen training path to enlightenment. Folk images are accompanied by poems and commentaries that depict a young ox-herder's quest to tame, train, and transform his heart and mind, a process that is represented by subduing the ox.<br /><br />We hope that this will be a transformational year for us as we emerge from a tough year before. As we tame our monkey minds, may we also triumph over the many challenges which life has for us!

Di Zang Lin 地藏林

Grand Offering to Buddha and Devas

As we draw to the end of the calendar year, we give thanks to the Triple Gems and to all heavenly Dharma Protectors and Devas. Dharma Protectors and heavenly Devas gave their vows before Lord Buddha to protect fellow Dharma practitioners and students of Lord Buddha. At the end of the year, we should give thanks for a peaceful year and be grateful that we are still well and alive.
