Penitence Prayer for Compassion

Penitence Prayer for Compassion is a repenting prayer with promising ourselves to dissolve past karmas, to learn the cause and effect law, and not to commit sins again, through reciting Sutras and bowing.

This method of Prayer was first made by Emperor Wu of the Liang Dynasty when his empress
who was then deceased came back in the form of a snake, and begged him to redeem her of her past sins.
He did this prayer, and his late wife could go to the Heaven. Such merits can be obtained through this Prayer.
Those who do this Prayer will achieve divine virtues and extinguish their sins.
It is believed that guiding the dead through this Prayer can free them from anguish.
The Prayer consists of ten (10) scriptures, one a day, and is held for ten (10) consecutive days.
