On August 30, 2023, the Malaysia Ban Foo Buddhist Organisation successfully held the Buddha‘s Rejoice Day Ullambana Puja. On this special day, we collectively recited the “Ullambana Sutra” and through the offering to the Sangha and the Puja, accumulated boundless merits for ourselves and others.
The origin of the Ullambana Festival is closely related to the filial piety of Maudgalyayana. To repay the kindness of his parents, he used his divine eye to observe the world and found that his mother had fallen into the hungry ghost realm due to her evil deeds. With the guidance of the Buddha, Maudgalyayana learned how to accumulate merits for his mother through Sangha offerings, allowing her to escape the suffering of the hungry ghost realm.
We are grateful to the hundred participants who joined us to recite sutras, offer to the Sangha, and make offerings together. Together, we accumulated boundless merits for ourselves and others, dedicating our good deeds to our ancestors and parents, wishing for their happiness, longevity, and ultimate peace and happiness in this world and the next.
