Every year, the seventh month of the Chinese Lunar calendar, especially in China, Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong, is known as the Hungry Ghost Month. The Hungry Ghost Festival will be on August 15, 2019, according to the Chinese Lunar calendar.
The Hungry Ghost Festival offers an excellent opportunity to care for the destitute and misfortune spirits. The ghosts and spirits, including the deceased ancestors, will come out from the lower realm (地獄) located in the Northeastern partof the planet. During this month, living descendants will offer incense and fruit (please do not eat the fruit after you offer) to the deceased ancestors as well as burn items made from Papier-mâché such as clothes, “gold bars,” and appliances.
We will also offer incense to the spirits from August 14 to 20, 2019 every night. You can light incense at the front or back of the house after dusk. Please recite the following mantra while offering incense to the local spirits; it will create good karma for your family since you’re providing food to the homeless souls.
“NAMAH SARVA TATHAGATHA AVALOKITE OM SAMBHARA SAMBHARA HUNG.”
