2021 Light Offering Inauguration Service

Date: Sunday, Feb 28, 2021

Time: 10:30am – 12:30pm


Lighting lamps has become a method of making offerings since the Buddha’s time. Among the Ten Offerings (incense, flowers, lamps, ointments, fruit, tea, food, treasures, beads, and clothing), lamps are essential as they symbolize radiance and wisdom.


At the beginning of the year, a special service is held to install the light-offering benefactor names known as the Light Offering Inauguration Service. This is one of many services which mark the start of the Lunar New Year.
