For members & non-members wishing to express gratitude to their ancestors

Ceremony marking the autumn equinox

Ceremony marking the autumn equinox originated from Japanese Buddhist traditions (Jpn. Higan-e 彼岸会) is an occasion of showing appreciation to our ancestors for unceasingly continuing the family line, for giving us life, and for their having prayed for descendants.

Recognising the law of ‘dependent origination’, we express our gratitude by reciting the Lotus Sutra and calling the ancestors’ posthumous names in front of the Buddha and vow to transfer the merits accumulated through our bodhisattva practices.

This event is for members as well as all non-members who wish to express gratitude to their ancestors in Rissho Kosei-kai (RK) style described above.

Submission of Posthumous Names
To make sure your ancestors’ posthumous names are called during the ceremony by our qualified Dharma teachers, please let us know their names if it has been given by the 23rd of September through the contact form below.

Please feel free to contact us if:

  • You have not had and would like to receive RK’s posthumous names of your ancestors to express gratitude.
  • You have not had and would like to show appreciation to your ancestors even without posthumous names.

Online Programme
Please feel free to contact us from the form below with the event’s name in the enquiry by the day before. The host will get back to you soon.
