Once again, the Chinese New Year is quickly approaching. We wish everyone with the affinity and the destiny to receive this message, a joyous holiday, filled with good luck and all the fortune you desire!
Each year Chinese Esoteric Buddhist temples around the world hold a ceremony on the Chinese New Year to extinguish obstacles and hindrances which can be brought by “Tai-Sui” (the title of the deity who commands the year), as well as the Thousand Light Dharma Rite which offers peace, prosperity, and good health to all. On the eve of the Chinese New Year, the Upper Midwest Hanmi Buddhist Association will hold these rites at Psinergy Natural Health & Holistic Wellness in St. Paul, MN. Anyone who would like to light a candle for their loved ones to be included in the Thousand Light rite is welcome to attend free of charge. Those who wish to be included in the “An-Tai-Sui” Dharma Rite ceremony should give an offering of one of the suggested amounts below. This rite is for those born in the years of the Ox, Dragon, Dog, and Goat/Ram, and its aim is to extinguish all of the difficulties, illnesses, disasters of the next year, and help create a healthy body, a happy heart, an abundance of wealth, and all and everything according to your will.
We invite you to come light a lamp for you and your loved ones, be a part of the ceremony!
