Description

Details

Of all the days in the year, the holiest for Buddhists is Wesak. Commemorating the three most significant events in the life of Shakyamuni Buddha — the birth of Prince Siddartha Gautama, his Enlightenment in becoming Buddha Shakyamuni and the occasion of his parinirvana, this day is so sacred that the merits from any virtuous deed are multiplied 100,000 times.

The Sutra on the Merit of Bathing the Buddha’ describes how:

“If the Buddhas are given various offerings with a pure heart: incense, flowers, gems, garlands, banners, parasols, and cushions ... the dark smoke of the burning incense will carry your mind to the Dharma realm”


and produces merits which

“...will be immeasurable and without limit; it will be perpetually continued through successive rebirths to the point of Enlightenment.”


Our Wesak 2018 Essentials Offering Package combines selected offerings into an affordable bundle, which includes everything necessary to connect with the Buddha and his blessings.

Holy Walk Light Offerings (1 set of 10 candles)

Light represents wisdom. When we offer candles, we brighten the lives of people under the shadow of difficulty and ignorance, and create the causes for wisdom and awareness to grow. The Holy Walk at Kechara Forest Retreat features ten holy sites where candles can be offered to ten enthroned Buddhas, each bringing additional unique benefits:
  1. Buddha Shakyamuni and Lama Tsongkhapa (for auspiciousness)
  2. Dorje Shugden (for the fulfilment of wishes)
  3. 4-armed Manjushri (for wisdom)
  4. Gyenze (for wealth and abundance)
  5. Manjushri Nagaraksha (for protection)
  6. Tsem Rinpoche’s cabin (for general blessings)
  7. Vajrayogini Stupa (for attainments)
  8. Buddha Nageshvaraja (for purification)
  9. Loma Gyonma (for healing)
  10. Green Tara (for swift assistance)

2-feet Incense Offering (1 stick)

Incense has powerful purification properties. Just as the scent of incense purifies a room, so too are we when we offer incense — we create the causes for purity, for ourselves and our surroundings. Each incense stick burns for approximately 3 hours.

Gold Leaf Offering (1 set of 3 leaves)

A 3-foot Fasting Buddha statue, whose holy form is a reminder of how much difficulty the Buddha went through to become fully enlightened, will be adorned with gold leaf on your behalf to help you realise the virtues of generosity and to create the causes for wealth, resources and abundance.

Complimentary Offerings!

The Wesak 2018 Essentials Offering Package also includes two complimentary group offerings to extend the merits you generate on this virtuous day.
  • A ‘Sangsol’ — Tibetan incense ritual — will be offered at the traditional Sangphur in Kechara Forest Retreat, to clear your obstacles and for the success of all your endeavours.
  • A Body, Speech and Mind offering to H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche — an 8-inch statue of H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, a sacred Vajrayogini Dharma text and a Stupa — to create the causes for you too to attain the enlightened body, speech and mind.
Recommended for individuals, new practitioners, and those on a modest budget.
