Notice of the Ekayana Qingming Festival Dharma Assembly to Repay the Kindness of and Perform Transference for the Deceased

Once again, the Qingming Festival is around the corner. During this traditional festival of the Chinese nation when people sincerely commemorate and pay respect to their ancestors, the annual Qingming Festival Dharma Assembly will be held at Kyoto Shimeisan Ichijo Temple to repay the kindness of and perform transference for the deceased.

The Importance of Transference

Transference is very important for the deceased and should be performed upon death. It would greatly benefit the deceased if the transference ritual continues for 49 days after their death. Moreover, transference should be performed for the deceased every year during Qingming Festival or on their anniversary of death, and this will generate tremendous benefit for them no matter which state of existence they are in. If they are still in one of the six realms of cyclic existence, they may attain liberation from it by the virtue of the transference; if they have already attained liberation, they will become a Buddha more quickly; and if they have already become a Buddha, the transference will be an offering and homage to them. You can chant sutras, practice relevant Buddhist rituals and generate and dedicate merits for the deceased by yourself, or you can entreat monks or nuns from various Buddhist monasteries to perform transference for them. This will not only be highly beneficial to the deceased, but will also create boundless merit for ourselves.

Schedule of the Ekayana Qingming Festival Dharma Assembly

The Dharma assembly will be divided into two sessions: on April 4, a transference session will be held specially for those who died during the coronavirus outbreaks around the world; and on April 5, another transference session will be held for the deceased as listed by the benefactors.

Transference rituals will be performed meticulously by seven acharyas and other monastic members at the Dharma assembly presided over by Great Acharya Zhiguang.
