by the Most Ven. Master Ching Hsin
The auspicious Surangama Dharma Gathering has being held at Kuang Teh Temple for the past 25 consecutive years. The devotees gathered; rejoice and practice the dharma to perfect the merit and wisdom.
Surangama Sutra taught us on how to break the delusional mental activities, unearth the true nature of our Heart and stages in realizing one's own Buddha-Nature. The teaching explained various stages of jhanas, 40 stages prior to reach the Enlightenment and how to attain Nirvana.
Nonetheless, the sentient at current times are low in wisdom, bear heavy burdens of defilement and are unable to reach realization. Hence Buddha sets convenient methods to lead the devotees into the practice.
It has been 25 years since this Temple follows the teaching and practice the Suragama Dharma Gathering. The participants gathered auspicious affinities with the Dharma and gained benefits to continue the path of Enlightenment.
We dedicate the merits to the prosperity of the Country, World Peace and pray that sentient also attain happiness.
