Cremation Ceremony of a Dharma Master, Master Long Gen 隆根长老荼毗(火化)大典

On 15th June 2011, Master Long Gen passed away.  Known for his life long work and effort in Buddhist education, he has left us and on 24th June 2011, a cremation ceremony and puja service was conducted in his honour.  At 1145am, when the puja service was about to begin, a halo of light appeared around the sun.  Below is a newspaper cutting that captured what was seen as an auspicious aura, an auspicious ring of light in the sky, seen from Leng Foong Prajna Temple.

 

For many, such a sight is indeed inspiring!

Being inspired, let us go learn about the teachings shared by late Master Long Gen, so that we may learn the Buddha’s teaching through his sharing.

nThrough this learning, let us practise. Through the practice, let us realise the way things truly are. Through such realisation, let us attain to Nibbana!

In this way, let us we honour the late Master Long Gen.
