DBZ: O-Bon at Dai Bosatsu Zendo

August 13 @ 6:00 pm - August 15 @ 11:30 am

This O-Bon 2021 is an unprecedented occasion, with so many losses in our country and around the globe. Holding this annual ceremony is always of great importance as a way of expressing our gratitude to departed family members, teachers, and friends, but it is especially meaningful during these pandemic months. On Friday evening we will have an Opening Fire and call their spirits back. On Saturday we will inscribe their names on lanterns and offer a special O-Bon meal, followed by the beautiful O-Bon chanting service. As night falls, we’ll set the lanterns afloat onto Beecher Lake. A bonfire and gathering in the Beecher House will follow. The events will be held both in-person and online. Unfortunately, in-person registration is full. Online participants will be able to view the entire event live. Online participants will also be able to submit names to be included in the Dai Segaki dedication.

The suggested contribution for online participation is $150.
