THE 16 ARHATS
Buddha Shakyamuni personally selected the Sixteen Arhats from amongst his disciples and requested them to remain in this world, protecting the Dharma for as long as beings are capable of benefitting from the teachings. They vowed at the time of the Parinirvana to remain in the world and maintain the Dharma until the time of the future Buddha Maitreya. To visualize Buddha Shakyamuni surrounded by the Sixteen Arhats and an assembly of Bodhisattvas generates great merit and quickly develops insight into the teachings of the Buddha.
On Sunday, we will do the 16 Arhats ritual, because it is auspicious to pray after Losar for the long life of the Gurus and for universal peace.
