A day of remembrance and merit transfer for those who passed away!
International Buddhist Meditation Center (IBMC) held the annual Ullambana ceremony on 29th August 2021 at the temple in Los Angeles.
The ceremony is a time to help those who have died and are still suffering. It is based on the Ullambana Sutra in Mahayana Buddhism, where the Buddha teaches his disciple Maudgalyāyana how to obtain liberation for his mother who was reborn into a lower realm of existence.
The ceremony ended with Dana for monks and lunch for lay people.
