Title: A National Buddhist Memorial Ceremony For Asian American Ancestors
Description: Please join Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple as we partner with other Asian American temples and organizations, ally partner sanghas and organizations, and individuals of all backgrounds for a Buddhist ceremony in memory of our Asian American ancestors.
On May 4th, exactly seven weeks, or forty-nine days, will have passed since the Atlanta shootings. In many Buddhist traditions, including our own, forty-nine days after death marks an important transition for the bereaved. The hourlong memorial will be livestreamed from Higashi Honganji, where we experienced acts of vandalism and a subsequent outpouring of support from the community.
