HUNGRY GHOST FESTIVAL (盂蘭節) (中元普渡節) – 2020

Every year, the seventh month of the Chinese Lunar calendar ( August 19 – September 16, 2020) in Asia, especially in China, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, is known as the Hungry Ghost Month. The Hungry Ghost Festival will be on September 2, 2020, according to the Chinese Lunar calendar.

The Hungry Ghost Festival offers an excellent opportunity to care for the destitute and misfortune spirits. Hungry ghosts cannot eat or drink; they can only smell smoke and are appeased by the offering of incense or other items burn and chanted mantras.

The ghosts and spirits, including the deceased ancestors, will come out from the lower realm (地獄) to the Northeastern part of the planet. During this month, living descendants will offer incense and fruit (please do not eat the fruit after you provide) to the deceased ancestors and burn items made from papier-mâché, such as clothes, “gold bars,” and appliances.

We will also offer incense to the spirits from September 1 – 7 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.

It would be best if you avoided the following activities during the Hungry Ghost month:

  • You should not stay out late at night, as the spirits might follow you home.

  • You should not take selfies at night. Otherwise, your camera might capture the image of a spirit.

  • You should not kill moths; we believe your family members and loved ones to be reincarnated spirits, who are just dropping by to see you.

  • You should not play any spirit games; otherwise, you will attract the spirit to join you.

  • You should avoid swimming at night, as evil spirits are said to linger in water and drown people for a rebirth.

  • You should not open an umbrella indoor, as an umbrella is believed to be a vehicle for spirits traveling into your home.

  • You should not blow a whistle or sing at night. Whistling or singing might attract spirits during this month.

  • You should not look back at night; it may be the spirit tapping your shoulder to cover your “protective flame.” Humans have three “protective flame” on your body – left shoulder, right shoulder, and forehead.

  • You should not sit in the first row of the opera performances and movie cinema, as we mostly reserve the first front row for entertaining the spirits.

How to use a STUPA to bring you to enlightenment

Lama Zopa Rinpoche advises that the stupa should be placed in the kitchen, living room, or on a table. By simply looking at the stupa, there is empowering purification that brings you to enlightenment. The stupa purifies negative karma collected from the beginning of your life that are obstacles to temporary and ultimate happiness.

If you have pets, such as dogs and cats, you can also bring them around the stupa by holding them in your hands, so they are at the same level as the stupa.

When you go around the stupa, recite OM MANI PADME HUM or other mantras.
