2023 Dharma Service Schedule

At Jinyin Temple, we welcome all “youyuan” or connected beings to participate in our Dharma Service held for major Buddhist festivals and auspicious spiritual days.  


At Dharma Services, the sangha performs rituals to invite the spiritual guardians of the lineage with utmost sincerity, piety, and pure faith to manifest blessings at these auspicious occasions. We invoke that all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas from the Ten Directions to be with us and include all connected beings in the Dharma Realm.  


May all sentient beings find liberation in this lifetime.  

May the auspicious power of the Vajra Master, spiritual guardians, buddhas and bodhisattvas protect us and bless us.  

May the merit of our practice spread everywhere to all.  

Ankele yekesuo!
