November 9 12:30 pm—November 10, 12:30 pm Edmonton time matches a Merit multiplying day (Buddha’s Descent from Heaven of 33). Effects multiply 100 million times during this time. The 8 precepts are refraining from killing, stealing, lying, sexual conduct, intoxicants, eating at the wrong times, sitting/sleeping on high beds, and jewelry/perfume/makeup/singing/dancing. They are kept for 1 day. One does not eat past noon, with exemptions for health reasons. Diluted juice and milk are permitted. Taking the 8 precepts is very good for purifying negative karma and accumulating merit. Many other prayers will be done during this auspicious day, including Guru Puja, etc.

All services are free. Offers of support are gratefully accepted and appreciated.
