During the 18-day CNY lantern festival, we will bless everyone with Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s CNY message “May Benevolence and Harmony Bring Peaceful Wellbeing, Let Abundance and Joy Yield Auspiciousness in Our Lives”. At the beginning of the new year, we would like to invite you and your family to return to the monastery to pray for blessings and to bring peace and happiness home. During CNY, Venerable Master Hsing Yun said,” In the Year of the Rabbit, may kindness and compassion be the key to wholesome outcomes.” Although the COVID-19 pandemic and natural disasters are still around, we can still live together with right understanding and right thought, so that the world is filled with care and harmony. We can drive away the days of darkness and usher in a safe and warm Year of the Rabbit.
