The 7th month of the lunar calendar celebrates the Hungry Ghost Festival. It is originated from China where the Chinese paid homage to their deceased parents and ancestors as an important practice of filial piety. The festival has become an important Chinese festival nowadays and they participate in Enlightenment Ceremony.
The Enlightenment Ceremony is an expression of filial piety and a good deed of mercy. It also enlightened us to be thankful in life, to know our benefactors and to repay the debt of gratitude.
The keen involvement by benevolent people is ample testimony of the time-honored virtues of filial piety which is faithfully observed by the Chinese community.
The Zhong Yuan Enlightenment Ceremony (中元节超度法会) will be held in Nirvana Memorial Garden from 25th August to 27th August.

Many people start to encounter many obstacles and troubles when they start to get better in their lives. The entanglement of an acquaintance and a creditor is the result of both yin and yang suffering. Bad fortune, unsatisfactory career, disharmony between husband and wife, unfilial children, nightmares in sleep, and even unexplainable illnesses are all caused by cause and effect. All karmas are born through cause and effect, so through signing up for large-scale puja, one can overcome the grievances and creditors of your life and dedicate the merits of chanting sutras and repentance to it, so when hatred and grievances are let go in one’s heart, one will be free from suffering.
During the Puja, we sincerely prayed to Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva to take good care of these children, to resolve the resentment in their hearts with compassion and love, and then to let go of their attachments and ignorance, and to be reborn in the Buddhaland with the Bodhisattva.
