鐘鼓募款

Dear friends,

As you might know, both the bell and the drum are one of the most important Dharma instruments to the temple. In Buddha's time, the bell and drum were used to gather everyone to announce the precepts, meal times, Dharma talks etc. Up until now, they have become equipments to announce the times to wake up and go to bed.

In Buddhism, the correct way to explain is: "In the morning, the bell is sounded first then the drum is hit; in the evening, the drum is hit first and then the gong is sounded.”

In Buddhism, the bell's sound is considered to be calming and to induce a suitable atmosphere for meditation. Because of their shape (with sloped shoulders and a flat base) the bells are seen as representations of the sitting Buddha, and are accorded similar respect; those striking the bell will first make three bows towards it, just as they would before a statue of Buddha.

According to the Vinaya words: " Upon hearing sounds of the gong, worries will be ceased, wisdom will grow, Bodhi will be born, from hell that one will go, vows will be created to become a Buddha, and to save all sentient beings." Therefore the reason that temples sound the bell every morning and evening is very significant; also the daily routines of a temple starts and ends with the sounding of the bell.

The Triple Crane Retreat Center is welcoming the big Bell and Drum from Taiwan. It is a great way to accumulate merits by offering or helping to build Bell and Drum to Buddhist Retreat Center or temple.

We humbly seek your generous donations and supports. Any amount offered will be received with much appreciation. Donations more than $500, your dedicated Names will be listed on the donor recognition monument at the Retreat Center.

Triple Crane Retreat Center cooperates with statewide stay-at-home order and is temperately closed until 4/30. The reopening date will be announced in conjunction with the government announcement. Since the outbreak, I have continued my practices and returned practice merit to all healthcare workers and first responder workers who have kept our communities safe. We pray for their safety and health, and pray for a speedy epidemic recovery to everyone. We held Ching Ming festival (Chinese Memorial Day) and food offering to honor and pray to folks' ancestors, the Tribal Nations and Indigenous people of North America. Wish the deceased letting go of everything for good and the living ones continue to face life bravely. During the quarantine, I wish everyone enjoy and treasure the special time you can spend with your family and love ones. In the same time, please reflect upon ourselves about what the value and significance of life. Hopefully, after this difficult period, we come out to be more mature, independent and strong living individuals, able to better prospers and coexist with each other and the earth.

Master Haiyun JM. Dharma Tour in North America was cancelled for this spring.

As the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to spread, Master Haiyun JM. and the Huayen Dharma Tour in North America was cancelled for this spring. We hope that the outbreak will subside soon and people will return to a calm and stable life. As things come back to a new normal, we will look forward to rescheduling our Dharma Tour of North America, again in the fall. It is imperative right now that we cooperate with all preventive measures man-dated by our government and health care providers in order to take good care of ourselves and our family members. Following these guidelines will support our personal, physical, and mental health and well-being as well as that of our neigh-bors and social.

classes and activities will be postponed for now

Because the Coronavirus continues to escalate in Michigan, Triple Crane Retreat Center is doing what we can to help "flatten the curve." All of our classes and activities will be postponed for now, until further notice - hoping that will not be too long. We are praying each day that the virus will dissipate soon and all beings will find a Happy, Healthy, and Peaceful, New Normal. Stay tuned to FB....... We will let you know when our classes and activities will begin again.

Huayen Chan Kuan:Arms Swing

Since the coronavirus continues to escalate in Michigan, we encourage you to practice Huayen Chan Kuan in order to strengthen lungs, boost immune system and respiratory system. The Huayen Chan Kuan is an exercise which is to move body to generate inner-heat and energy. The step is easy and simply: lift arms high when inhale, and swing arms downward and backward when exhale. You only need to practice 5 minutes at a time and once a day. Twice a day is even better. To learn more about the Huayen Chan Kuan, we would like to welcome you to attend our weekly class in April or purification Chan retreat in Fall.

三鶴道場2020年度點燈供佛

「過去佛陀在世時,有許多傑出的弟子,他們的長處各有不同,例如舍利弗是智慧第一、目犍連是神通第一,而阿那律則是天眼第一,他能清楚的觀看到三千大千世界,連非常微細的地方都能夠看得很清楚。 阿難知道了,就問佛說:『世尊,請問阿那律前世有何因緣,使他今世能夠有如此的天眼呢?』 佛回答說:『在過去約九十一劫前,毘婆尸佛入涅槃後,那時阿那律是一個盜賊,他便到佛塔中去,想盜取財物。當他來到佛塔時,佛前的燈火已經快要熄滅了,他見了便趕緊以劍將燈蕊撥正,使燈火又恢復了光明。盜賊看著燈火,忽然感受到佛燈光明的威力,心裡不覺肅然起敬。他想,別人都願意拿物品來供佛了,我哪裡有偷盜的道理呢?因此,他就放下偷盜的念頭離去了。

護持三鶴道場

三鶴道場乃台灣大華嚴寺的北美分院,位於風景秀麗的美國密西根州雀兒喜市。在2012年底,由芝加哥、多倫多與安納堡三地的善眾共同發⼼買下。自成立以來,道場接待了來自世界各地的求法及參訪的學員。正是得力於十方眾生和志工們堅持不懈的護持,道場才得以不斷地更新和愈加完善。現在努力的目標是要建立三鶴道場為真心求道者精進修行的聖地,這也是為十方眾生培植善根、積累福報福田的沃土。
