The Yoga Flaming Mouth Ceremony (瑜珈焰口法會) is another special Dharma service in the Grand Hall. It is often conducted at night, with its main aim being to deliver hungry ghosts.


The Buddhist service conducted at the Avatamsaka Hall is led by two senior bhikshus. Practitioners reverently and silently read the 80 scrolls of the Avatamsaka Sutra (大方廣佛華嚴經) that was translated by the Tripitaka Master Sramana Siksananda of Khotan in the Tang Dynasty.(唐代實叉難陀)
The Surangama Sutra is recited reverently in the Surangama Hall, followed by The Surangama Mantra (楞嚴咒) and the Heart Sutra (心經) . Every day, there is a session where practitioners practice the meditative contemplation of “entering the flow and extinguishing all objects” (入流亡所), which is the perfect penetration, or method, used to attain liberation. This is the method based on using the organ of the ear that was cultivated by Guan Yin Bodhisattva.
The Buddhist services at the Earth Treasure (Ksitigarbha) Bodhisattva Hall include chanting the Sutra of the Earth Treasure Bodhisattva’s Original Vows (地藏菩薩本願經) , participating in the Earth Treasure Bodhisattva Repentence Ceremony (地藏懺) and attending dharma talks by monastics.
