365 Days Auspicious Mother Lamp Sponsorship


Offering light, in particular, is a special door of dependent arising to quickly complete the accumulation of merit and receive blessings. It is said in the Second Chapter of the Root Tantra of Chakrasamvara (manifestation of Shakyamuni Buddha), “If you wish for sublime realization, offer hundreds of lights”. The lamp symbolizes the light of wisdom that dispels the darkness of ignorance. As expounded by Lord Buddha in the Sutra of Clarifying Karma, making lamp offerings would also allow one to receive great enjoyment of wealth, to be reborn in the deva or human realm, and to swiftly attain liberation and enlightenment.

 

The Auspicious Mother Lamp is constantly lit, symbolizing a continuous stream of blessing that benefit yourself and all sentient beings.
