2012 New Year Three-Day Recitation Retreat

During the retreat, everyone tried to clear their minds and concentrate on their recitations. Venerable Hung I reminded everyone that if in daily life one can always keep Buddha’s name in mind and in both good times and bad times respond with the thought of the Amitabha recitation, then one will be able to learn what the Buddha has learned, to do what the Buddha has done, and to achieve the state of being in Pureland.

The retreat concluded successfully on January 2, 2012. All participants felt they had gained something from this experience.
