Kuan Yin Days

Postby Will » Sun Jul 17, 2011 2:39 pm

Starting today, 17 July 2011, thru 23 July many Buddhists around the planet will be reciting chapter 25 of the Lotus Sutra. This chapter deals with Avalokiteshvara or Kuan Yin, and the merit from such recitation is dedicated to all beings finding and treading the path to buddhahood successfully.
