Description

Details

The Ullambana Festival is how Buddhists express their respect for their ancestors and their compassion for all beings suffering in the realms of misery. It all began as a filial son’s wish to liberate his deceased mother from suffering.

According to the Ullambana Sutra, Maudgalyayana, one of Buddha Shakyamuni’s chief disciples, saw with his clairvoyance that his beloved mother had been reborn as a Hungry Ghost (preta) in the lower realms. Distressed, he sought the Buddha's advice on how best to help his mother. The Buddha said,

“Your mother’s offences are deep and firmly rooted. You alone do not have enough power... The awesome spiritual power of the assembled Sangha of the ten directions is necessary for liberation to be attained."
The Buddha then advised Maudgalyayana to make extensive offerings to the Sangha on the 15th day of the 7th month, as the best way to relieve the sufferings of others is by dedicating oceans of merits to them. This was the beginning of the Buddhist Ullambana Festival.

This Ullambana, remember your dearly departed and express your compassion for all suffering beings with the Ullambana Remembrance Fund, specially bundled to benefit your loved ones who are no longer with you.

Dedication Tablet and Flower Posy (Medium x 1)
Your tablet will be placed in Wisdom Hall, Kechara Forest Retreat for the entire 7th lunar month and your dedication will be offered to the Three Jewels during the daily recitation of Ullambana pujas and particularly during the Ullambana Festival on 24th and 25th August 2018, which features two powerful Ullambana pujas.

Holy Walk Light Offerings (1 set of 10 candles)
