“It is the love bestowed by Mahavairocana Buddha.” The words of Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi were just like a light beam, shining on my heart. Tears filled my eyes, as I felt the blessing and protection given by Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

During the observance of the Holy Birthday of Shakyamuni Buddha a magnificent and colorful cosmic halo appeared over the Western Shrine. The tremendous halo was radiating incredible energy and coving the whole shrine.

 

Witnessing this incomparably glorious image, all students and disciples were filled with joy. Some new comers asked with curiosity, why this unbelievable phenomenon would appear? The Honorable Master answered, it was because the Western Shrine is the holy land for the assembly of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Therefore when it comes time for celebration and ceremony, blessing will be bestowed by compassionate Buddhas.

 

Then I remembered the first time I saw the cosmic halo was during the birthday of Shakyamuni Buddha five years ago. Since then, I have seen this wonderful sight many times, when the Five World Buddhas Sanctuaries were under construction, when we were practicing supreme Inner Fire Dharma, and when celebrating the birthday of Mahavairocana Buddha. I believed it was made by the inexhaustible holy blessing of Mahavairocana Buddha. Due to the incomparable causes and conditions within, Guang Huan Mi Zong was born from the cosmic halo, for the people and for the world.

 

The compassion and love of Buddha exists everywhere in the universe. Crossing all the boundaries of ethnic, language, country, time and space, this great love of Buddha has no limitation. Trying to understand it just through human vision would never be enough. Only through the heart could someone answer the calls from the deepest part of his soul.  Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi manifests this unparalleled compassion and love to all beings in the Saha World through through his action – teaching the Dharma, which offers practitioners the precious chance to obtain health and wisdom.
