Why are we chanting the Hwa Om Song Jung name nonstop for 3 days and 2 nights?

The Hwa Om Song Jung are 104 Bodhisattvas who protect the Dharma, with a vow to protect the Three Jewels and all practitioners. We awaken the heart of practice and Dharma protection in our hearts by chanting the name of the Hwa Om Song Jung, thereby becoming the Hwa Om Song Jung Bodhisattvas ourselves.

The chanting event is very simple - only chanting the four syllables “Hwa Om Song Jung” without stopping, whether you are sitting, standing, walking or bowing. We allow this mantra to calm our arising thoughts and sensations. When we practice like this in a sustained manner, our hearts and minds become purified and clear. If we can all live our lives with this intention, all worries and problems may be resolved.

One of the purposes of this event is to raise sufficient funds for Su Bong Zen Monastery, so that we may continue to spread the Dharma and share the teachings of Zen to benefit more beings everywhere. However, beyond fundraising, we hope that all participants can together experience the spirit of one mind and the ease of letting go, thus bringing this experience into your daily lives to benefit your family, friends, colleagues, community and even your country. We kindly ask that you support our 3-day 2-night Hwa Om Song Jung Chanting Fundraiser. We are grateful to all supporters who make this event possible.
