Great Compassion Prayer Ceremony 大悲忏法会

According to the “Avatamsaka Sutra”, young Sudhana visited 53 great spiritual benefactors on his path to seek enlightenment. His 27th visit was to Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva (also known as Guanyin Bodhisattva), who was residing at Kong Meng San (also known as Mount Pu Tuo) at that time. Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva taught Sudhana the practice of great compassion to realise the bodhisattva path. To commemorate this, the monastery conducts the Great Compassion Prayer on the 27th day of every lunar month.

The Great Compassion Prayer is centred on the chanting of Avalokiteshvara Boddhisattva’s “Great Compassion Dharani Repentence”. It is said that “if one wishes to become a Buddha, one has to practice the Bodhisattva path.” By participating in The Great Compassion Prayer, one not only repents on one’s past negative karma, but also to give rise to practising the qualities of Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva’s noble qualities of compassion, wisdom, motivation and right action. The merits accrued from participating in the Great Compassion Prayer not only allows one to cultivate self-awareness and reflection, but also through the blessings of the Bodhisattva, one is able to purify one’s mind, be free from suffering and past negative karma.
