Recounting the 2565 Bathing Buddha Ceremony

Bathing Buddha through the Cloud, Spiritual Enlightenment and Realisation


–– an Account on the 2565th Bathing Buddha Holy Ceremony of Tasmanian Chinese Buddhist Academy of Australia




The 2565th Bathing Buddha Holy Ceremony of Tasmanian Chinese Buddhist Academy of Australia was solemnly and supremely convened through the “Cloud” on 16 May 2021.


Under the shared karmic tow of the entire human race, COVID-19 currently still ravages the entire world. With the travel restrictions of social distancing, under the prajna arrangement of Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Patriarch Master, Tasmania Chinese Buddhist Academy of Australia shifted its annual Bathing Buddha Holy Ceremony online. This event that facilitates sentient beings to practice the tri-tantra blessing and personally realise attaining Buddhahood in the current lifetime was launched through the “virtual, non-virtual, not non-virtual” cloud of the unrevealed time-space. This annual Bathing Buddha Holy Ceremony was still able to share with all sentient beings of the whole world including the three realms and ten directions the supreme infinite, formless extraordinary spiritual bliss of the holy birth of the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha.


This year’s Cloud Bathing Buddha Holy Ceremony invited and welcomed over five hundred honoured guests from various countries and regions around the world. Amongst them were the representative of the Premier of Tasmania the Honourable Peter Gutwein MP, Attorney-General, Minister for Justice, Minister for Corrections, Minister for Workplace Safety and Consumer Affairs, Minister for the Arts the Honourable Elise Archer MP; President of Chinese Communities Association of Tasmania Mr. Brian Chong and his wife; Rotating President and Secretary General of the Federation of Chinese Associations Tasmania Mr. Jason Xu and Yang Kai; Past-Chairperson of the Multicultural Council of Tasmania Mr. Waqas Durrani; SBS Australia Radio Broadcaster Ms. May Hu OAM; Past-President of Chinese Communities Association of Tasmania Mr. Daniel Chan AOM and his wife; Past-President of Chinese Language Teaching Association of Tasmania Ms Shelley Keyes; representative of the Korean community Mr. James Chan Park and his wife.


The event also saw high monks, eminent ones and great knowledgeable scholars from religious and academic circles around the world grace the ceremony, including: Sri Lankan Theravada Maha Thero –– Permanent Secretary General of the World Buddhist Sangha Youth the Most Venerable Mugunuwela Anuruddha Maha Thero; Professor of Philosophy at Peking University, Honorary President of the Academy of Religion at Peking University, Honorary President of the Tasmanian Chinese Buddhist Academy of Australia, Professor Lou Yulie.


Furthermore, Holy Tantra Elder Gurus, Holy Tantra Gurus, Holy Tantra Practitioners, Holy Tantra Devotees, Holy Tantra Reincarnated Beings from all around the worlding including China (Hong Kong and Taiwan), USA, Canada, England, New Zealand, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Korean. We were also joined by local meditation class members of Tasmania.


The latter portion of the Bathing Buddha Holy Ceremony followed previous years incorporating elements of Western culture. According to the doctrinal teachings of Mahayana Buddhism: “everyone has Buddha nature; everyone is thus a Buddha”; celebrating the holy birthday of the Great Holy Buddha is precisely celebrating the birthday of all sentient beings. With this we shared birthday cakes with all the Zoom attendees. Many Holy Tantra Practitioners in their own home mandala field prepared cakes, fruits and snacks, where the Dharma joy and Dharma bliss was share in realtime.


Chinese Han Transmission Tantrayana Buddhism –– Holy Tantra Gu Fan Mi Jin-Gang-Dhyana Buddhism originates from the Bhagavan Gu Fan Mi Fo Fan Vidyadhara Tantrayana Buddhism, its teaching form is complete, yoga form ultimate, precept form strict and perfection form apical. It is the Holy Tantra Vajra “weapon” of light, compassion wisdom and power that is able to destroy all fallacy, inspirer all external paths, save and deliver all upper upper upper supreme root capacity sentient beings, dissolving avidya and guiding evil to return to the correct path. This was and is employed by the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha and the first Holy Ancestral Patriarch Master ZHI-JI Vimalakirti along with the Guru of the Seven Buddhas Manjushri Buddha and the Vidyadhara Tantrayana Sangha Community.


With various sutra systems inconceivable, infinitely extensive, surpassing beyond all time-space and all Dharma realms. This is precisely the supreme enlightenment attained by the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha in this current era under the bodhi tree. This is also the ultimate doctrinal evidence of what Chinese Han Transmission Tantrayana Buddhism –– Holy Tantra Gu Fan Mi Jin-Gang-Dhyana Buddhism teaches as “everyone is able to attain Buddhahood”, “everyone is able to attain Buddhahood, thus everyone is able to practice Holy Tantra Rainbow Transformation and Reincarnation”.


We wish that the spiritual holy seed of the ultimate virtuous kindness compassion and wisdom of the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha can blossom the flower of Holy Tantra Spiritual Enlightenment in all the hearts of sentient beings with the correct conditions.


We wish under the protection of Buddhas of multiple devas, Tathagatas of multiple devas, all sunyata vogayers, vajras, Dharma protectors, vidyarajas, and ancestral patriarch masters of successive generations, all sentient being may be liberated from the temporary sufferings of the current life and sufferings of the eternal future lives.
