Sangha in Motion
Obon at RKINA
On Sun 18th 2010, Members gathered for Obon ceremony at RKINA.
Obon is a shortened form of Ullambana. It is Sanskrit for "hanging upside down" and implies great suffering. The Japanese believe they should ameliorate the suffering of the "Urabanna".
With many offerings and much sharing among the Sangha, members joyfully embraced and revered the teachings of Buddha and appreciated the ancestors.
