Ullambana - Collective Offering of Repaying kindness & Filial Piety (Single Name)


( / )

💫 Significance of Ullambana
🌻 Even though Moggallana was foremost in possessing psychic powers, he could not save his mother from the hungry ghost realm with his powers. Buddha advised Moggallana that he could only achieve doing so through offering 4 items (food, clothings, living necessities, and medicine) in a receptacle to the Sangha on the completion day of their Vassa retreat/rain retreat.  
Moggallana followed Buddha’s advice and through the power of making offering to the Sangha, his mother was able to be reborn in Trāyastriṃśa heaven to enjoy bliss. Buddha also said that the merits accumulated from such offerings can eliminate the negative karmic sins of our current and past parents from 7 lifetimes. 
🌻 End of Vassa retreat for the Sangha is also Buddha’s day, and on this day, let’s make offering for our parents, family and ourselves during Ullambana , where offering to the Sangha in the 10 directions, the merits accumulated are limitless, in the 10 directions, repaying the kindness of our parents!
