As one spring comes to an end, another begins. Auspicious greetings!
As we come upon the Year of the Rooster, Lingyin Temple wishes everyone a new year filled with soaring aspirations and eminence. Starting now, we should stay steadfast and progressive in the Buddhist practice and propagate altruistic Buddhism in accordance with Buddha and the Dharma. The realization of proper speech and proper deeds relies on the spirit of benevolence, inclusiveness and gratitude. What should be remembered is that we should be a messenger of alturistic Buddhism to proactively spread positive energy, joy and warmth.
It is the fervent wish of Lingyin Temple’s fourfold assembly of disciples that peace and harmony may prevail in this world. Let there be world peace, national prosperity, social harmony, happiness and wisdom for everyone.
