World Peace Bell

Aug 15, 2001

With the first strike of the World Peace Bell, the Dharma of Buddha (the Absolute, the Truth) is spread throughout the entire world, awakening all sentient beings out of ignorance so we may see this present beautiful world clearly and correctly in order benefit one another.

With the second strike of the bell, whoever receives Buddha’s teachings is helped to follow them accordingly, in order to bring happiness to humankind.

With the third strike of the bell, everyone is full of joy and with our beautiful minds, each one of us carries out bodhisattva actions, forever adorning the whole world with beauty.

Dong, dong, dong!

Whenever the bell is rung, our ignorance diminishes until peace comes to the whole world. We will all live very well with great prosperity in this present world, which no one will defile. The entire globe will become a live paradise.

Dong, dong, dong!

What I am teaching you is not new. You heard about it before in either this or a past life. This daily teaching is simply to remind us so that we can be clear and live correctly in this and future lives. Believing this teaching is entirely the decision of the one who reads it. In addition, applying one’s own concept to this teaching is the choice of the reader himself or herself. © Ji Kwang Dae Poep Sa Nim
