Date: 26th March (Sat)
Venue: Shinnyo-en Singapore
In Japan it has been believed through the ages that the Pure Land of Paradise exists far in the west. So the two days of the spring and autumn equinoxes, when the sun sets due west, were good reminders of the Pure Land, and a ceremony called “Higan Service” came to be observed to contemplate on the Buddha Land. The word “Higan” means “the other shore,” which refers to “the world of enlightenment, away from this shore of delusions.” We can get closer to the shore of spiritual liberation and enlightenment, and the state of permanence, bliss, true self, and purity, by offering consolatory prayers to liberate ancestral and others in the spiritual realm, while at the same time engaging in positive actions to benefit others through the Three Practices.
