2024 Qingming cum Repentance Ritual of Emperor Liang Grand Puja
The “Emperor Liang Jeweled Repentance” is also known as the “Repentance Dharma of Kindness and Compassion in the Bodhimanda.” It is one of the oldest and most substantiated Buddhist rituals in the history of Chinese Buddhism, and comprises the most comprehensive and complete steps to accumulating vast merits and seeking blessings for the living and departed loved ones while eradicating our non-virtuous karma and eliminating obstacles.
This repentance ritual was written and compiled by Emperor Liang (Wu Di) for his late empress, Chi, with the help of an eminent monk called Master Bao Zhi (or Master of Zen).
The Repentance Ritual cites 28 karma stories through which participants can be guided to reflect on their sins, then confess and repent. Participants can also be inspired to become more mindful of their actions at every moment so as to avoid planting causes of suffering, thereby cultivating bodhicitta and practicing bodhisattva deeds.
