Worshipping Ancestors and Lamp Offering to Buddha on Chap Goh Mei

Celebrate Chap Goh Mei by offering lamp to the Buddha,
The lights shine brightly,
Illuminating one with the wisdom of the Buddha’s lamp,
Reverse course of events and five blessings descend upon you.

Lighting a lamp can break through the darkness and bring light and hope. When there is light, all ignorance and unhappiness are removed. Lighting a lamp for Buddha is like sowing Boddhi seeds in our hearts. Through the irrigation of the Buddha Dharma, the wisdom and light will be lit at the beginning of the New Year, and our minds will be free and at ease throughout the year.

Sau Seng Lum Buddhist Temple has organized a worship ancestors and lamp offering event to Buddha on Chap Goh Mei. On behalf of the devotees, Sau Seng Lum Buddhist Temple lighted the lamps and made vows to pray for the light of the lamp that can break through the gloom of the world, and reveal the light of Dharma to destroy the ignorant, worry and troubles of all sentient beings.

According to the Abbess, Rev. Chang Heng, representing wisdom, the lamp can drive us away from the darkness, illuminate our life with wisdom, bring us light and hope, so that we can remove all ignorance and unsatisfactory elements. Lighting up the lamp of our inner heart, the light not only illuminates ourselves but also all living beings, which is profoundly meaningful.

“May there be a bright light in everyone’s life, and pray for the wisdom of the Buddha Dharma to remove all the ignorance and darkness in the world, so that every living being can obtain brightness, wisdom, peace, and happiness. May our wisdom also grow and we can eliminate the entanglement of worry with a pure mind.”
