Dear Monastics, lay Buddhists, and everyone,

Discourse on Showing Great Gratitude to Parents states: “On the Full Moon Day of yearly lunar July, people with filial piety and deep gratitude have to repay their parents.” Indeed, when the Vu Lan Ceremonial Season comes, everyone spends their free time going to the Temple so that they can practice the Buddhadharma and attend the Vu Lan Ceremony together happily.

The Vu Lan is a most important Spiritual Cultural Festival yearly to Vietnamese Buddhists, consisting of the following events: The first is praying blessings for the living parents arousing virtuous merit and longevity. The second is praying blessings for those who passed away were born up to a peaceful realm. The third is praying blessings for oneself and for others getting peaceful joy and happiness, and the fourth is praying blessings for the world peace, people obtaining peaceful joy. Through learning, understanding, practicing, spreading, and applying the Dharma into our daily lives, we can enjoy flowers and fruits of the Dharma pleasure for ourselves and for others right here and right now in the present life.

This year, because pandemic spread everywhere, to contribute to preventing epidemics, Pháp Nhãn Temple hold the Filial VU LAN Online via ZOOM on Sunday, September 13, 2020.

We would like to wholeheartedly pray for effectively early vaccines to treat this pandemic quickly being ended.
