Zen Master Dae Kwan, who is the guiding teacher of the Hong Kong Zen Center, has sent this request our to all the members of our school:
We like to encourage all our students to support the government request to meditate for 3 minutes to all the deceased who die during the earthquake in Sichuan at 2:28pm for 3 days.
WHEN YOUR MIND IS PURE THE LAND IS ALSO PURE.
May we meditate with this mind and dedicate to the Sichuan victims to sacrifice for all beings.
-May all the deceased go to good and bright pure land and be free from frustration, anger and sadness. Attain good rebirth.
May their death turn to a great bodhisattva action for all beings, help all beings to wake up from our delusion and attachment.
May we show our deepest gratitude and apologies to your unfortunate death. Because of our bad action to our Earth that this happen in your place.
May more life be rescued.
May all families be taken care of and no one is left out.
May all the missing families be reunited.
May all the frontline volunteers’ be safe and with great energy to help those who are in need.
May all of us wake up and learn from this bad situation and continue to bring forth great love and great care to those who are in need until all become independent.
May we all learn from this disaster and turn it to a great teaching to this whole world that government and subject become one will heal all crisis.
You can share this dedication with everybody.
Yours In Dharma,
Sifu / Dae Kwan
