We would like to invite you to celebrate Amitabha Buddha's Birthday together at Wei Mountain Temple. In general, we know one of the Buddhas who is the most popular called "Shakyamuni". We know his life story how he was born as a prince and went out to meditate and became the enlightened one. There are actually so many other Buddhas in this universe. After Shakyamuni was enlightened, he taught his disciples to recite Amitabha Buddha's name. The great Master Hsuan Hua said "You should not disbelieve this because a long time ago, Amitabha signed an agreement with us which said, “after I realize Buddhahood, you can recite my name and do so as well.” Since we signed our names, if we recite, we are sure to become Buddhas." On November 24, we would like to invite everyone to celebrate Amitabha's birthday together. After that, Master YongHua will give a Dharma talk. You can ask questions and learn about Buddhism. There will be a vegetarian feast after the chanting and Dharma talk and we will prepare special Korean temple food dishes to share with you. This event is free and donation base. We would like to share what we have and celebrate this auspicious day with others.
