Ancestral Memorial (Qing Ming) Ceremony 寶塔清明節孝親報恩地藏法會
We will host the Ancestral Memorial Ceremony at Texas Chan Pagoda Monastery (aka International Retreat Center) in Shepherd, TX on Sunday (4/1) from 9:30am - 4:30pm. Ancestral Memorial Ceremony, aka Qingming, is an opportunity for individuals and families to remember and honor their ancestors. In the ceremony, we will recite the Sutra of Original Vows of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (copies of the sutra are available for borrow at the Zen Center) and dedicate the merits to the deceased family and/or ancestors. Furthermore, you are more than welcome to write tablets for your living and/or deceased family members or friends for wonderful blessing.
If you need carpool to the Pagoda, please register in advance at the front desk.
