On 28 November 2019, volunteers from the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, Singapore Branch and the Cambodian Branch visited the Children’s Hospital of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and made a charitable donation on behalf of the Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu. The hospital provides free medical care to children in Cambodia and treats between 1,500 to 2,000 critically ill children each day.

In the afternoon, the volunteers also visited the Future Light Orphanage in Phnom Penh. The orphanage is home to more than 60 children. The children’s education is funded by the orphanage up to the completion of High school. The volunteers represented the Buddhist teacher Jun Hong Lu and donated living essentials to the Orphanage, although it was only a small act of kindness, the children were very happy. Together with the volunteers, they said “gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Grandpa Lu”.

The day trip was, although very brief, the volunteers felt deeply emotional and reminded them of their task of bringing the Buddhist teaching to help relieve more people who are in need.

A Great Give Back to The Society — SUMMERICE 2017: Care package distribution to the needy families, Guan Yin Citta Singapore

A Great Give Back to The Society — SUMMERICE 2017: Care package distribution to the needy families, Guan Yin Citta Singapore

SummeRICE 2017

With the dawn’s first thin thread of light made its way through the window, a new day had begun. Volunteers from Guan Yin Citta Singapore started the day with the busy preparation for the Care Package delivery. After checking the inventory and loading them into cars, all the volunteers were off to the destination, the Redhill in Singapore. This seemingly ordinary day soon turned to an extraordinary memory for the residents living in there.

On June 3, 2017, the Bukit Merah Community Center, collaborating with Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door Buddhism Practice Center in Singapore, organized a SummeRICE 2017 activity. It aims to provide support and comfort to low income families with the free distribution of Care Packages. Over 100 volunteers from Guan Yin Citta joined this operation. They worked together to do the packing and handed out packages with sincere greetings to the needy families. Every Care Package contained several kinds of dried food, which were convenient for long term use.

All the volunteers felt glad and honored to have such a good opportunity to serve the marginalized group in society. One volunteer remarked, “It is my honor to be able to assist the Community Center to do the good things for the residents in this district. As a Buddhist practitioner, I have benefited a lot from Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu teaches us that unconditionally loving all the sentient beings is to love ourselves. Since the Guan Yin Hall is so close to the Redhill, we will try our best to service the community in the future and help more people.”

Another volunteer also commented that this was not her first time participating in the similar activities organized by Guan Yin Citta Practice Centre (Singapore). “All these years, the Guan Yin Citta Singapore has been dedicating to holding diversified activities and events with the integration of social responsibility. Normally, when the Mother’s Day is on its way, we’ll organize Flower arrangement class for both mothers and children, which can remind participants of the filial piety, a virtue of respect for one’s parent. During the Mid-Autumn Festival, we’ll organize activities to introduce traditional Chinese culture. Not to mention other big days, such as Dragon Boat Festival, Lantern Festival, Chinese New Year, etc.”

By applying Master Jun Hong Lu‘s teaching ‘benefiting others benefits oneself’ to practice, the volunteers’ self-devotion actions are remarkable and admirable. This operation demonstrates the Buddhist concept of selflessness, which provides an avenue to social awareness and engagement to the care of low income families. It also shows the act of giving is such a powerful benevolence to bring inner peace and joy. Spreading more love, kindness, and compassion into this world will reward an abundant life with happiness.

Dharma Propagation Activities in Hawaii, Chicago, Seattle Picture 1

FIRST STOP:   HAWAII

Hawaii is the 50th state of U.S., an isolated volcanic archipelago in the Central Pacific. Its islands are renowned for their rugged landscapes of cliffs, waterfalls, tropical foliage and colorful beaches. According to the 2010 US Census, over 1/3 of Hawaii’s population is Asian, most of them with Chinese ancestry. This made Hawaii a perfect place to begin the Buddhism Propagation in the spring of 2018.

From April 2nd through April 10th of 2018, over 40 Buddhist practitioners from New York, Pennsylvania, California, Arizona, and Vancouver joined at this beautiful location to propagate Buddhism. Their intention of “sow lotus seeds” at Hawaii is an act of transmitting love and peace. During the short stay in Hawaii, volunteers spent their time on the streets, handing out flyers and newspapers with the hope that more fellows could take on the path of practicing Buddhism. In addition, this group of volunteers attempted to spread out the message about Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu’s coming Dharma Talks in US to more people. The two free admission Dharma Talks will be held at Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Los Angeles on October 7, 2018, and Madison Square Garden in Manhattan New York on October 14, 2018.

SECOND STOP:  CHICAGO

After a short break, a new round of propagation started from April 25th through May 1st of 2018. More Buddhist practitioners from Alabama, Washington, Maryland, Texas, and Michigan joined this volunteer group at Chicago. The city of Chicago has been known by many nicknames, but it is most widely recognized as the “Windy City.” Despite this year’s spring was not feeling much like spring during these times with the chilly gusts, Buddhist practitioners were still enthusiastic and continued with “sow lotus seeds” volunteer works regardless of the chills. On the last two days of this journey, Buddhist practitioners made various flavors of mochi, sweet deserts, and snacks as gratitude in return to the community.

THIRD STOP:  SEATTLE

Seattle, the last stop of this journey, brought all the Buddhist practitioners together from May 4th to May 8th, 2018. Although not every “lotus seed” sown by Buddhist practitioners will “grow” along this journey, every location will eventually bring new Buddhist practitioners based on the efforts volunteers put into. Every volunteer was practicing Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu’s teachings that “remain steadfast in cultivating without expecting anything in return.”

Miri, the second largest city in Sarawak, Malaysia, has been famous for its diversified National Parks and breathtaking sceneries. On June 6, 2018, the Miri Civic Center became the focus of attention. Many people were flocking to the Civic Center not for the good views, but for the diversified vegetarian cuisine and Dharma Talk videos from Master Jun Hong Lu. It’s such an inspiring event that many people felt the warmth of love and kindness permeated all over the place.

For years, the Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Association of Malaysian has been dedicating to the Buddhism propagation throughout the nation. Nearly 20 large scale free vegetarian tasting events have been held in different places of Malaysia. The Miri Brunei Vegetarian Tasting Event is just one of the series of events.

On June 2, 2018, over 1,000 people attended the Miri Brunei Vegetarian Tasting Event. Volunteers with smiles were busily preparing meals for every guest.

Meanwhile, video clips from Master Jun Hong Lu’s Dharma Talks were played in the main hall. People were fascinated by Master Jun Hong Lu’s ability to tell one’s past, present and future through Totem inquiry. After video watching, many people came to realize the importance of the Law of Cause of Effect. All the Totem inquiries cleared indicated how one’s own deeds bring one’s own results. Nothing happens by chance. Without knowing this Law deeply, people cannot understand Buddhism or move forward on the path of practice. Last but not least, a Lucky Draw Session was arranged at the end of the event. Several lucky guests walked away with prizes and happily immersed themselves in this amazing harvest.

This grand event was a huge success. It simply wouldn’t be possible without the help of 300 gracious volunteers from different places of Malaysia and Singapore, including Kuala Lumpur, Johor, Malacca, Ipoh, Kelantan, Pahang, East Malaysia, Brunei etc. Their generosity, compassion and dedications demonstrated some of the important qualities that a good Buddhist practitioner should have.

Dharma Propagation in Philly Vegfest 2018, Guan Yin Citta Philadelphia Chapter

Dharma Propagation in Philly Vegfest 2018, Guan Yin Citta Philadelphia Chapter

Guan Yin Citta Philadelphia Chapter
With the arrival of the splendid summer season in Philadelphia comes an abundance of festivals and events celebrating arts, culture and food. Philly Vegfest is one of them. The festival is Philadelphia’s premier celebration of vegan and whole-food-plant-based (WFPB) lifestyles. Vendors were selling veggie hot dogs, veggie burgers, and many varieties of vegan foods in promoting the importance of consuming less meat product. On June 9th, 2018, eleven brothers from Guan Yin Citta Philadelphia Chapter attended the Vegfest event, propagating Buddhism and spreading the Buddhist philosophy to more people.

It’s quite common today that people are suffering from various types of problems, such as the problems of relating to each other, problems of dealing with anger, fights and disputes. People are feeling these problems more but are unable to find solutions for them, particularly on a personal level, in terms of their emotions and minds. That’s why Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door should be introduced to more people, regardless their ages and races, helping them alleviate from suffering and pain.

The propagation is quite successful, with almost 1000 flyers passed out in 4 hours and quite a number of books distributed for free. All the brothers worked hard together as a team to transmit the compassion, love and inner peace to all the people passing by. The Dharma music played on site and the beautifully designed banners with lotus flowers on them are quite attracting and drew many people’s attention. They stopped by and chatted happily with brothers from Guan Yin Citta Philly Chapter. Some brothers were kindly explaining questions to them, such as what Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door is, who Master Junhong Lu is and where the Chapter is located in Philly, etc. Some event attendees were fascinated by the fact that knowing Master Lu has the ability to tell one’s past, present, and future through Totem enquiry. Some brothers were busily distributing flyers and brochures to let people know the Dharma Talk in the coming October in Manhattan NY.

 

Wish the coming Dharma Talk by Master Lu in Manhattan New York a great success. May Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s grace illuminate all living beings. There will be more people freed from suffering and embracing their inner peace. Please follow us on Facebook: GuanYinCittaPhiladelphiaChapter
