In order to attain liberation we must face and accept reality and work diligently towards improving our fate. How can we change our fate? First, harbor remorse for our offenses; Second, exercise patient forbearance; Third, practice virtue to dispel evil; Last, apply the Dharma principles to turn knowledge into wisdom.
Grand Master Wei Chueh

Dedication of Merits


May I remove the Three Obstructions and all afflictions.

May I have the wisdom to perceive the Truth.

May all beings be free of transgression and suffering.

I vow to practice the bodhisattva way, life after life.

May all sentient beings be free from diseases and calamities,
and all attain buddhahood.
