HHDL will be touring the United States for his 80th birthday, he will be in Texas, California, and New York this week. When His Holiness was asked what he’d like as a birthday gift, he replied that as a Buddhist monk he has no particular wishes. However, he urged people to try and engage in spiritual transformation. He said we all have the potential to do good in the world, but that we need to take action rather than just talk about it. As Buddhists, we may pray to the Buddhas and bodhisattvas, however the Buddha was clear when he said:
The Buddhas do not wash away the karma of other beings,
Nor do they remove the consequences with their hands;
They do not transmit their understanding into others' minds;
We human beings can use the potential we have to create happiness.
- July 7 & July 8, 2pm-9pm, 漢傳佛教:台灣海濤法師慈悲開示@華人僑教中心, 5377 New Peachtree Rd, Chamblee GA 30341
