ULLAMBANA CELEBRATION 2017
Dear all Buddhist followers,
The Ullambana season is arriving, once again, for all Buddhists around the world. In order to raise filial piety, show our gratitude to our ancestors and honor the Vietnamese tradition, Dong Hung temple will celebrate the Ullambana festival on August 27, 2017 (July 6 lunar calendar) on the temple ground with the agenda below:
- 10.30am: A special service will be held at the Buddha hall with an offering to the Triple Gems, chanting the Ullumbana Sutra and sharing merits to our loved ones.
- 11.15 am: Rose Pinning Ceremony. We will have an offering to our ancestors and all deceased members in the memorial room. All are welcome, but we encourage anyone with deceased family members who are displayed at the memorial room to join us for this service.
- 12.30pm: Luncheon and entertainment.
- 2.00pm: Offering to the hungry ghosts ceremony.
On behalf of Dong Hung temple, we would like to wish you a happy Ullambana celebration and we hope you and your family members will be healthy, happy, and peaceful.
