Transmitting the Light: in commemoration of Venerable Master Sheng Yen
On the evening of the 23rd February 2013, also traditionally known as the Lantern Festival, the Xingxin Monastery in eastern Taiwan Taitung City held a ceremony “Transmitting the Light (of Dharma)” in commemoration of the life and teachings of Venerable Master Sheng Yen, the founder of Dharma Drum Mountain.
The late Venerable Master Sheng Yen once said, “What I am unable to accomplish in this life, I vow to push forward through countless future lives. What I am unable to accomplish personally, I exhort everyone to undertake together.”
Director of Xingxin Monastery, Venerable Guo Zhen, encouraged participants to wholeheartedly practice the Master’s teachings and vows in daily life, as well as to learn from mistakes.
