China Songshan Shaolin Temple grandly hosted a 7-day Water Land Dharma Function from September 2 to 9, 2020 or the 15th to 22nd day of the seventh lunar month. It was the second day when sacrifice was offered to Buddha at the Emperor Liang Repentance Shrine and sutra-chanting was launched at the mouth of all shrines.









Repentance, sutra chanting and reciting continued conducting at the mouth of all shrines on the second day of the Water Land Dharma Function in Shaolin Temple. Shaolin monks and vegetarian hosts went to the Emperor Liang Repentance Shrine for repentance, extension and dedication at 8 am. Vegetarian hosts bowed in repentance solemnly under the guidance of dharma masters. Deepen thoughts of the cause and effect, reduce suffering and stablish body and mind through paying respect for Buddhas, repentance, visualisation, vow and the like. Visitors also stopped to enjoy Buddhist melodies at the outside of shrines with dharma joy. Master Yongqian, the chief monk of Shaolin Temple, presided over the dharma assembly and guided hosts going to the mouth of shrines for sutra chanting and dedication following the honor guard. The merits were dedicated for world peace, security and prosperity of our country as well as hosts’ families gaining peace and happiness, prosperity, benefiting wisdom and auspiciousness.





Chanting sutra at the Water Land Dharma Function means representing Buddha to preach dharma, accordingly making sentient beings of six destinies listen to dharma, and sutra chanting have double meaning of internal cultivation and external promotion.

The Water Land Dharma Function in Shaolin Temple in Gengzi Year will terminate at the inner shrine at twelve o’ clock tomorrow.
