We will continue the recitations of the Sutra of Golden Light for the benefit of all sentient beings and also for both the success of Kurukulla Center and to create the causes and conditions for Lama Zopa Rinpoche to visit our Center in 2016. We have been fortunate enough to hand deliver an invitation to Rinpoche this past week. What an incredible blessing it would be if we could welcome Rinpoche back to Kurukulla Center!
The goal is for us to recite the Sutra of Golden Light 108 times by the end of the year and offer this practice to Rinpoche. To help us reach this number we are challenging you, our community, to please recite this incredible Sutra just once. With your support we will quickly be able to fulfill our goal.
We are very happy to report that 52 (Two more and we'll be halfway!!) recitations have been completed, but it is still a long way to go to get to 108!!
As Lama Zopa Rinpoche said on May 3, 2007:
"Anybody who wants peace in the world should read The Golden Light Sutra. This is a very important practice to stop violence and wars in the world. The Golden Light Sutra is one of the most beneficial ways to bring peace. This is something that everyone can do, no matter how busy you are - even if you can read one page a day or a few lines and in this way continually read The Golden Light Sutra."
The text for the Sutra can be downloaded from the FPMT website and more information on the Sutra can be found here.
NOTE: Please send your number of complete recitations to Marianne to allow us to keep track of the total number completed.
