Wencheng Gongzhu International Foundation held a Fish Liberation Ceremony in Hong Kong on 9th April 2016. Liberating fish is the generous gift of longevity. All sentient beings cherish life, and fish liberation extends the lives of numerous sentient beings. It has the good karma of increasing our own longevity and prosperity; this is the eternal truth of interdependent origination.
On a bright and sunny Saturday morning, local students and friends of His Eminence Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche set out from Tsuen Wan Ferry Pier to participate in this meaningful ceremony. Under the guidance of His Eminence, 800 catty of fish were released into the sea. Then, as the boat turned back to shore, Rinpoche led participants in chanting the Amitayus Mantra – “OM AMARANI JIWANTIYE SVAHA”, offering long-life to all sentient beings.
May all sentient beings enjoy long-life and prosperity!
