Arousing the Bodhi-mind vowing to act with great compassion,
aspiring to deliver beings in the spirit of Bodhisattva’s actions.


At 10:30 a.m., on March 11, the first group of 583 lay Buddhist practitioners from China, Hong Kong, Macau, Belgium, the UK, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Taiwan, completed the 23rd Lay Bodhisattva Precepts Transmission ceremony at the Main Buddha Hall of Dharma Drum Mountain World Center for Buddhist Education. The Bodhisattva Dharma masters, including Ven. Guo Dong, DDM abbot president, Ven. Hui Min, DDM chief-seat monk, and Ven. Guo Hui, DDM vice abbot, gave their blessings to the precept recipients, or the “baby bodhisattvas,” expecting them to learn the compassion and wisdom required of a bodhisattva, by developing the self while benefitting others.
