Benefits of The Sutra of Golden Light
There are many reports of surprising results coming from reciting The Golden Light Sutra.
For many years, it has been one of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s strongly recommended practices and I have great faith in it — that faith increases as I see more and more results, first-hand.
Would You Like to Commit to Regular Recitations?
Already we have had enthusiastic responses whenever we have conducted recitations of The Golden Light Sutra here in Sri Lanka.
So, I would like to start a more formal and regular group of us where each person dedicates a day to recite the whole Sutra. We can invite people from Sri Lanka and around the world.
Then we can invite people to ask for dedications like Rinpoche recommends in the next paragraph. The results will radiate like the sun.
“I was thinking that generally it would be very helpful if there is a monastery, nunnery, or even a lay center, organization or group of people that could read the Golden Light Sutra every day. Then people from different places all over the world who are sick, or could not find a job for years, or have any other kind of problem, those unbelievable problems that you don’t normally hear about, could write in and request the group to dedicate their reading of the Golden Light Sutra for them. Those people can dedicate their recitation of the Golden Light Sutra for people all over the world who need help, as well as for the six realms’ sentient beings to be freed from the oceans of samsaric suffering and brought to enlightenment.” — Lama Zopa Rinpoche
I have long been attracted to the Golden Light Sutra and its ability to cheer up my mind. The more I read it, the more I want to read it. Initially a group of us recited it weekly at Tara Institute in Melbourne then subsequently Rinpoche gave us the oral transmission of it in Bendigo, Australia.
More recently when asked for a purification practice for the people of Sri Lanka, Rinpoche said “Really, really important to continue the Golden Light Sutra! Sooooooo important, this will have great benefit! Please continue! This is the main thing.”
This is something that Lama Zopa Rinpoche has said some years ago. It is his wish and how amazing if we could make it happen.
