Acts of charity of the persons who practice call Avalokitesvara Guan Yin's name
one million times are very great and they get to develop their ability about Buddhism
after calling Avalokitesvara Guan Yin's name one million times. The religious group of
Tiantai Buddhism held one million Buddhist services of devotion to Avalokitesvara
Bodhisattva targeting believers in the temples all over the country before the
100th birthday of Supreme Patriarch Sangwol Wongak who left the intention of
'Practice asceticism through the one million Buddhist services of devotion to
Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva' when he lived.
The one million Buddhist services that more than 15,000 Buddhists participated in 91 temples all over the countries were implemented in Samgwangsa Temple from June 2009. And it was smoothly returned in 2011 when it was the 100th birthday of Supreme Patriarch Sangwol Wongak. The Tiantai Buddhists who participated in the one million Buddhist services by honoring its wish devoted themselves for Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva for hours per day. If you chant Avalokitesvara Guan Yin with an average of 5 to 6 hours per day for 100 days, you get fill one million Buddhist services
Incantations of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva presented by Supreme Patriarch Sangwol
Wongak succeeded to Chinese Tiantai Buddhism and Korean Tiantai Buddhism's unique
asceticism method. Siming Zhili (960 to 1028) who revived Tiantai Buddhism as the 17th
Patriarch of Chinese Tiantai Buddhism organized a Buddhist Prayer Association and made
the persons who cultivated themselves morally or religiously as well as the persons who
became Buddhist monks chant Buddhist prayers one thousand times everyday.
And Wonmyo Yose (1163~1245) in the Goryeo Dynasty organized a white lotus association focusing on Buddhist prayers and asceticism, recited the whole of [the Sutra o f the Lotus] everyday, chanted Junjedharani(준제다라니) 1,000 times and Amitabha 10,000 times, and worshiped in front of 53 Buddhas, and repent.
Incantations of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and the one million Buddhist services have followed up the asceticism tradition of Korean Tiantai Buddhism and the intention of succeeded to the Patriotic Buddhism. These holy Buddhist services were began to establish the religious group's devotion to asceticism internally and give the nation and people who get into dangerous situations and are bereft courage and hope externally. And these holy Buddhist services made Mahayana Bodhisattva look back on Korean Buddhism that gets to focus on learning and knowledge and repent it by being patient and practicing asceticism for 100 days with the spirit of strict asceticism.
