2018 Chinese New Year Celebration at Guan Yin Citta Buddhism Practice Frankfurt Chapter

The Spring Festival, also known as Chinese New Year, is one of the most important traditional holidays in China from ancient times to the present. It is celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunar Chinese calendar in which winter is over and spring is coming, and everything starts all over again. It’s a holiday worth celebrating and it also brings joy to the world. Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu has shown us, in metaphysics, the Spring Festival is a very important day. By offering the First Incense to Guan Yin Bodhisattva on the Chinese New Year eve will bring more peace and good luck for that year.

Although German Buddhist practitioners are far away from the native land, they are not alone. The German Association of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door specially arranged the veggie dumpling making in the afternoon on February 15th at Guan Yin Hall; a vegetarian dinner gathering at 6 pm, and the offering First Incense from midnight to 2 a.m. in the morning.

Around 300 Buddhist practitioners gathered together with compassion and gratitude to pray for the health of their families. On that day, a lot of Buddhist practitioners came with their family members. All the attendees were very happy. After everyone offered the First Incense, each attendee had a chance of drawing a number, according to the number order they are able to offer incense for themselves and their family members.

Dharma and Health Thematic Studies with Vegetarian Function

Dozens of local Buddhist practitioners enjoyed a very delicious vegetarian lunch together, and then began the Dharma and health thematic study. First, Buddhist practitioners watched the exciting video of Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu’s Buddhism propagation and the 2018 Sydney Dharma Public Talk on health and precautions. Then, Buddhist practitioners listened to the remarkable radio lecture of Master Lu’s Dharma in plain terms: Dharma and Health – Seven Regimens of Health Care. Finally, three Buddhist practitioners gave their wonderful and touching speeches on the trip to Sydney Dharma Public Talk. The Buddhist practitioners were deeply grateful to their greatest and most compassionate teacher, Master Jun Hong Lu, whom, like their father, regarded them as the most loving children and finally went home to see him. Selfless Master Jun Hong Lu would travel long distance to Europe see these Buddhist practitioners. He endured too much and had given up his own time just to bless these Buddhist practitioners. Buddhist practitioners stated that they would attend Master Lu’s Dharma Public Talk more often if they ever have more opportunities. Furthermore, they truly cherish Master Jun Hong Lu and Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door as well as their affiliation with Buddha.

Performing fish liberation for Master Jun Hong Lu on Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s Birthday

Buddhist practitioners from Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door are very grateful to Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu for his dedication to the propagation of Buddhism. As a father figure, he not only helps many Buddhist friends alleviate from physical and mental suffering, but also provides advice on everyone’s daily life issues. It’s a great blessing for all the Buddhist practitioners to have such a powerful and compassionate mentor in their lives.

On the Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s birthday, dozens of German Buddhist practitioners performed fish liberations for Master Jun Hong Lu to thank for his contributions in promoting Buddhism. They sincerely prayed to Guan Yin Bodhisattva for Master Jun Hong Lu that he could stay healthy with longevity. The Dharma propagation could be smooth sailing around the world. There will be more people on the path of practicing Buddhism.

Performing life liberation is good way to accumulate tremendous virtues. It takes three forms of “giving,” including the giving of materials, the giving of Dharma, and the giving of fearlessness. The virtues accumulated are immeasurable.

By the river, many Buddhist practitioners saw the iridescent clouds and the light illuminated by Buddha. Master Lu is regarded as the primus inter pares with compassion and benevolence in contributing to the society.
