Notice: Soul Relieving Ceremony on Sept. 2, 2020

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.

Spreading love and blessings to the world in turmoil — Report of the Qing Ming Blessing and Soul-Relieving Ceremonies

By Kira

While the COVID-19 pandemic is endangering the globe, a series of Blessing and Soul-Relieving Ceremonies have been launched to shine light on the world with love by the compassionate Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi and his disciples. On the date of April 5th, 2020, the ceremonies were held at three locations: Guang Huan Mi Zong Holy Mountain Buddha Land, Guanyin Holy Mountain, and Hong Kong Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Temple. These rituals were intended for all the deceased medical workers and patients, with no distinction to nationality, as well as sending blessings and prayers to all beings in the world.

Preachers are chanting before the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva statue. With the Joss Sticks lit, their chanting and prayers were heard by Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Thus the blessings and powerful energy nourished the earth from the divine beings.

The vows and chanting are for the pandemic to be ended, for souls of the deceased to be relieved, and for all predestinated sentient beings in the world to enjoy peace and happiness.
