A Buddhist blessing bell in the temple courtyard. A reminder to herald peace and harmony. An offering to Buddhist teachings may be made by ringing the large Blessing Bell in the centre court. There are many merits in striking the bell if the intention is to bring benefit to others. The following inscription is written on the bell:
Let the chime of the bell alleviate sufferings,
Cultivate wisdom and induce enlightenment.
Let those hearing it refrain from hell and the burning flame,
But vow for attainment of Buddhahood and delivering all sentient beings.
