From the Buddhist Sutra: During the Dharma Vanishing Era, this world will be endangered by drastic changes such as unpredictable weather, frequent occurrences of widespread epidemics, disasters, and fatal illnesses.
In the Lunar Calendar, the 15th of July is known as the Zhongyuan Festival or Bon Festival. It is a day to honor the spirits of one’s ancestors, guide and help them to find peace, by burning joss paper for the deceased as well as feeding lost souls.
To help relieve the sins and pain of all beings (alive and deceased) from suffering, the Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi will compassionately hold a Soul Relieving Ceremony at the Temple of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva in the Holy Mountain Buddha Land on September 2, 2020.
Those who would like to help beloved deceased ones become free from suffering, please submit your request to our regional centers, temples, or chapels. Upon receipt, your submissions will be forwarded to the Headquarters for further arrangements.
For those who have made an annual offering to the Buddha in the Thousand Buddha Hall and consequently attended our Dharma Blessing Event on August 8, 2020, you will be prioritized in enrolling for this ceremony at no cost.
All other attendees are welcome to make their generous donations. For those who intend to alleviate their ancestors’ sufferings and enable their ancestors to be blessed in this Ceremony, must have their applications submitted punctually.
