Besides the powerful, stable blessings and compassion of fully enlightened beings such as the Buddha, the next in line in terms of compassionate energy is that of a mother and father’s love for their child. The power of compassion of a parent is so powerful that it is stated in Shantideva’s teachings that the root or core of developing Bodhicitta starts with the meditation on the kindness of a mother for her child.

The mother is always thinking of the baby’s happiness despite having gone through 9 months of pain and discomfort while the baby is in her womb. The mother and father are always thinking of ways to make their child as comfortable and safe as possible throughout the child’s life.

There is so much that a parent can do to lay down the foundation for their child to become a good person when they grow up. One way to help your child to grow into a insightful human being is to make sure that the Dharma blessings are taught to them when their minds are young.

On the 5th of May 2012, in conjunction with Wesak Day, our Kechara Pastors will be conducting a baby baptismal at our Kechara Gompa, using the specially composed baptismal text by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. It is extremely auspicious for a child to receive blessings on Wesak Day as it is the day Buddha Shakyamuni turned the Dharma wheel by being born, attained enlightenment and passed into paranirvana.

Bringing your child to the Baby Baptismal (baby blessing) is a way to express a higher love for your child beyond food, shelter, education, money, clothes etc. Giving your child a spiritual foundation when they are young is key in helping them achieve happiness and obtain protection.

Benefits of this Baby Baptismal to your child:

  • Your child becomes a Buddhist

  • Your child will receive the blessings and be protected by the Three Jewels: Buddha, Dharma and Sangha

  • It plants Dharmic seeds and positive imprints in your child’s mind to become good people in the future
