On May 15, 2019, the Water and Land Dharma Function in Shaolin Temple in Jihai Year entered into its third day. The Inner Shrine started to build up a boundary for ritual, send invitations and hang Buddhist flags meanwhile other Buddhist rites of the Outer Shrine were conducted solemnly.

The Water and Land Dharma Function in Shaolin Temple in Jihai Year set the “Inner Shrine” among the precepts shrines. At 2 am, the Inner Shrine was solemn and masters presiding over assembly lead people to build up a boundary for ritual and purification. 









The Inner Shrine built up a boundary, which is also called offering incense. At 5am, flowers, lamps and honor guards holding Buddhist flags went forward. Dharma masters led vegetarian hosts to walk around respective shrine for water purification. At 8am, the Inner Shrine sent invitations and hung Buddhist flags. Three masters sent messengers carrying invitation letters to the heaven and the nether world to invite all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas as well as the realm of existence to attend the dharma assembly and benefit all universally.








Then three masters of the Inner Shrine led vegetarian hosts to leave for the Gateway and chant sutra to invite saints, announcing the three realms to extensively invite all the four classes of saints and the six realms attending the dharma assembly.

Invitation letters were sent completely and saints and others came to protect the assembly. Hanging Buddhist flags and lamps made sentient beings know guiding wandering ghosts to gather here receiving dharma benefits. Dharma rains of wisdom arrived here and the Inner Shrine started successfully. (Edited by Master Yanyang, Zou Xiang, Yue Long and Zhang Hailong)
