TO ALL THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO HELP IBS:
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the help you provide International Bodhisattva Sangha (IBS) through volunteer work, book donations, or financial contributions. Without your help and contributions, Ven. Xian Zhong, Mr. Daniel Tam, Ms. Shirley Tam would not be able to spread the Dharma to those of us who are neck deep in samsara.
On May 8, 2013, Master Heuiguang came to Chuckawalla Valley State Prison to help us celebrate Vesak, the Buddha’s birthday, Enlightenment and his attaining Nirvana. He also administered the Five Precepts and the Triple gem Reguge to many of us. I renewed my vows and once again took Refuge. It was a most auspicious occasion that would not have been possible but for your dedication to the Dharma. Master’s talk was very inspiring, interspersed with hid humor, which as you know, is very infectious and genuine.
Thank you again for your dedication to spreading the Dharma to all sentient beings. May you have success in all your endeavors and live in peace and happiness. I pray that you all achieve that which you seek….Nirvana.
Amituofo with metta,
