Grandmaster Debuts Great Mengshan Deliverance and Grand Luotian Ritual

An Earth-shaking Great Mengshan Deliverance and Grand Luotian Ritual Will Soon Commence!

On June 30, 2018, HH Living Buddha Lian-sheng will visit Oakland, California, U.S.A. to preside over a Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Grand Luotian Ritual, Dark-faced Golden Mother, and Pure Land Trinity Ceremony. The ceremony is being organized by the True Buddha Vijaya Temple. This is the first dharma ceremony to commence with the Great Mengshan Deliverance and Grand Luotian Ritual [Luotian Dajiao in Chinese]. During the ceremony, Grandmaster Lu will personally sing the Mengshan verse, converse directly with spirits, and discourse Buddhadharma to them. There will be 100 members of the True Buddha sangha present to support the ceremony. With his magnificent virtue and compassionate buddha power, Grandmaster will subdue evil spirits, liberate them from suffering, and deliver them, thereby bringing peace to the world. This is an unprecedented dharma opportunity which is certain to create a sensation!!

It was reported that in the past, disciples unknowingly attended ceremonies performed by XX. Disciples also registered the names of the deceased at these ceremonies, including the names of ancestors. Therefore, disciples are not only worried that they themselves may suffer disturbances from spirits, but are also concerned that the deceased and their ancestors may fall into an adjacent hell, a spontaneously manifested hell contingent upon XX House and located adjacent to the main hell.

Upon hearing this, Grandmaster was truly heartbroken and compassionate for sentient beings. He will therefore preside over this special ceremony to subdue spirits of XX House and deliver beings in the netherworld to the pure land.

As for all others who registered their deceased and ancestors but are uncertain whether they were actually delivered during the aforementioned XX ceremonies, the deceased will receive Grandmaster's blessing to gain relief from suffering and for rebirth in the pure land based on the merit of Mengshan ceremony participants who register as main supplicants. The living will also be blessed for good health, removal of obstacles, purity restoration, increase of blessings and wisdom, elimination of karmic obstacles, and protection by buddha light. Hence, this ceremony is rare and extraordinary. Not only can the living register as main supplicants of this ceremony, but they can also register the deceased as main supplicants.

For the first time, Grandmaster will preside over a ceremony that performs Luotian Ritual and has Ksitigarbha, Dark-faced Golden Mother and Pure Land Trinity as personal deities. This will inevitably shake the ten dharma realms, deliver unfortunate and helpless spirits, conquer evil, and rescue sentient beings from danger and adversity. It will be a tremendous deliverance event that will benefit living people as well as the deceased. Grandmaster will personally bestow empowerment of the Ksitigarbha Luotian Ritual. It is hoped that everyone will inform everyone else about this rare event as this golden opportunity is not to be missed.

The True Buddha Vijaya Temple is inviting members of the True Buddha School (TBS) sangha to attend and support the ceremony. In addition, for sangha members participating in the ceremony, True Buddha Vijaya Temple will sponsor all expenses related to accommodation, food, transportation, and the one-day tour during the timeframe of the ceremony. All the merit of this offering to ordained renunciants will be dedicated to Grandmaster and Shimu for their good health, longevity, non-hindrance, auspiciousness and happiness.

(All acaryas and reverends who will participate in the Luotian Ritual need to prepare their own brown precept sash. They must also pre-recite the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Sutra three times and dedicate the merit to this dharma event. The registration deadline for sangha members is May 31, 2018.)

This unprecedented event is indeed precious and we welcome everyone to register as soon as possible. When the time comes, we urge everyone to bring their entire family. Everyone will definitely receive dharma benefits and blessings never before experienced, bright and luminous fortune, and everything auspicious!
