Shravasti Meditation in Taiwan

82281818 2652270614828106 4001848791798906880 oThe 4-day Shravasti Meditation retreat at Ling Jiou Mountain Buddhist Society, Taiwan has been successfully accomplished. At the conclusion session, His Holiness expressed his joy and contentment,“The Shravasti Meditation is based on Anapanasati Sutta. Today our retreat has been successfully accomplished.

At the conclusion session, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang expressed his joy and contentment, i feel very happy. Here, the environment is great: We have mountains, ocean, fresh air, and forests. You all practiced wholeheartedly and the volunteers worked very hard. 82223765 2652272878161213 418858851522052096 oI am filled with gratitude and joy. Although our retreat was very short, a lot of fruits have been produced. I am very satisfied by what we have accomplished. ”“The Buddha taught the Anapanasati Sutta in Shravasi. Along with Dhammapada,82253687 2652269994828168 8646253832432517120 o these were two extremely influential sutras during Buddha’s time in India, which was more than 2600 years ago. Today, we are extremely fortunate to be able to encounter and practice this great teaching of the Buddha. Being able to follow the Buddha’s footsteps to liberation brings great significance and blessings. This is especially true during the dark age, when many Buddhist practitioners, due to the existence of wide verities of teachings, 81752254 2652270524828115 5601853796096409600 odied without encountering this approach. This is very sad. Not to mention there are many others in this world who have never encountered any dharma due to lack of merits. But you all have accumulated the causes and conditions in your previous lives to encounter this opportunity. You should feel very happy.”
