Medicine Buddha Blessing Ceremony & Memorial Service
The Zen Center together with all the other branches of Chung Tai Chan Monastery in Taiwan and worldwide will hold Medicine Buddha Blessing Ceremonies during the summer months. In these ceremonies, we will chant the “Medicine Master Lapis Lazuli Radiance Tathagata Original Vows and Merit Sutra.”
By chanting the Sutra and making offerings, we will dedicate the blessings and merits to the Sangha, our families, all sentient beings, and world peace. All are welcome to set up blessing and memorial tablets and/or other offerings.
In addition to the Ceremony, a Memorial Service dedicated to the deceased will be held in the afternoon, 2:00-3:00 pm.
Anyone can set up Blessing and/or Memorial Tablets for special dedication in this ceremony.
