The ‘Light’ means brightness. It also denotes the light or lamp offered to the Buddhas.

In Buddhist scriptures, light is always used to signify the wisdom of the Lord Buddha. In the Great Parinirvana Sutra, it is stated that: “obscured by darkness of ignorance, sentient beings fail to realize wisdom; Buddha lit the lamp of Dharma, enlightens the Bodhisattvas to the path of Nirvana, the eternal bliss and purity”. It is said that to offer light to Buddhist stupas, Buddha images and Buddhist scriptures, one will reap immense merits. Further to this, in the Ekottara-Agama Sutra it is stated that: “When Buddha Dipankara was a Senior Bikkhu in his past life, diligently he offered light to the Treasury Buddha everyday, and he received the prophecy of becoming a Buddha”.

Therefore, come and lit a Lamp of Merits, make offerings to the Lord Buddha and chant the names of the Eighty-Eight Buddhas in the Repentance Sutra for this Lunar New Year. One will attain longevity, virtues, enhance wisdom, avoid premature or accidental death, and dispel all negative karmas created.
