Obon Service Online & By Invitation Only

August 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Obon service will be available online using Facebook Live from the Facebook group, Calgary Buddhist Temple Group.  Everyone is welcome!

Attendees to the Obon service at the Temple will only be for invited or Hatsubon families (members who have lost a loved one in the past year) so is BY INVITATION ONLY.

 

Honouring all Ancestors – Obon is a time to express our gratitude to loved ones who have passed on before us. Without them, we would not be who we are today, due to the basic tenet of interdependence. We would not be where we are and we would not be able to do the things we do to enjoy life. Just think about the number of people involved in creating each of us. If we go back just thirty generations, we can calculate that there were over two billion parents, starting with our two parents, their four parents, and so on—and that’s just the physical part.
