Date: January 30, 2020
Objective: Corresponding measures to the outbreak of coronavirus
1. In the effort to cease the outbreak of coronavirus, BLIA members worldwide are to adopt the following measures, joining together during this challenging time to overcome the difficulties:
Advocate: “Join palms – refrain from killing and practice vegetarianism for ceasing the epidemic. Three Acts of Goodness – transfer merits of sutra recitation for cherishing life.”
Initiate: Recitation of the “Heart Sutra” ten million times and Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s “A Prayer to Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva for Safety from the Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak.”
2. In upholding the spirit of compassion and loving-kindness for all beings, BLIA Malaysia, BLIA Brazil, BLIA Japan, and BLIA Africa have expediently collected more than a million masks which will be delivered by air on January 30, 31, and in early February as donation to Wuhan and other organizations with urgent needs for the relief of their situation.
3. In order not to burden our members, BLIA will not be conducting any fundraising activities for the outbreak at this time. For any sponsorships received, funds will be used for the mask shipments to provide more people with what they need.
Refrain from killing and practice vegetarianism for ceasing the epidemic.
Three Acts of Goodness
Transfer merits of sutra recitation for cherishing life.
Global recitation of Heart Sutra 10 million times and Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s “A Prayer to Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva for Safety from the Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak” for ceasing the epidemic.
Join palms instead of shake hands in greeting.
