Qing Ming 2020

25 March 2020 - 8:51pm Comments Off

Filial piety is a big aspect of Chinese culture. No matter where they are in the world, Chinese children are brought up from an early age to respect, support and honour their parents and elders, including their ancestors who have passed away.

Thus, festivals for honouring deceased loved ones — like Qing Ming — are among the biggest events in the Chinese cultural calendar.

Traditionally, Qing Ming or Tomb-Sweeping Day is observed by cleaning the burial sites of the dearly departed followed by making offerings of food, incense and joss paper paraphernalia to bring them good fortune in the afterlife.

Because of the #COVID19 pandemic, most of us will not be able to visit our ancestors but do not fret. According to Buddhist tenets, we can send even more good fortune and blessings to our dearly departed by making prayers and offerings to the enlightened beings and dedicating the merits to them.

So #StayAtHome and join us in for a Qing Ming Remembrance Puja on livestream to send great merits, blessings and good fortune to your dearly departed. Even though Kechara Forest Retreat is temporarily closed to the public, our resident pastors are working hard to bring help and benefit to all, no matter where you are in the world.
