Atavisi Buddha Vandana Sign up Sheet

Atavisi Buddha Puja is offering obeisance to 28 past Buddhas including the present Gautama Buddha. This ancient devotional practice increases our affinity with infinite virtues of Buddhas and deepens and our commitment on the Path. In this event, we recite the names of past 28 Buddhas and make offerings to them individually. Traditionally this is performed to bring health, prosperity, and success.

We perform Atavisi Buddha Puja all three months in this Rains Retreat season. Please bring your family and friends to participate. Please arrive at the temple by 6:45 PM EST.

The devotees who bring Dana in the evening for the following day could sign up for the Atavisi Buddha Puja for the same evening.

This Rains Retreat season, we live stream Atavisi Buddha Puja on YouTube in every evening. That way one can continue to follow the "Sutta Deshana" that we are planning to discuss every day.

Vas Season (Rains Retreat) was started during the time of the Buddha, the Awakened One. Full ordained monastics all over the world continue, up till the present time to observe this Rains Retreat or Monsoon Season Retreat for three months – from the full moon day in July to the Katina Ceremony. During this time, they dedicate their time to spiritual activities such as practicing meditation and studying Dhamma thoroughly. This gives an opportunity for Buddhist community to take care of the monastics by offering them food, drinks, medicine, etc. and also to participate in spiritual activities more often.
