Qing Ming as a Family Tradition
Is it necessary to pass on the culture of participating in traditional festivals?
How does Buddhism explain family life and companionship?
Everything can be an attachment, and in Samsara, nothing really works.
Understanding these in the right view, we can truly understand and feel ourselves, thus developing true realization from our practices.
Qing Ming - Season of Gratitude & Remembrance
"I am not familiar with the rites"

Remembering Qing Ming
The Qing Ming Festival may be a traditional Chinese festival, deeply rooted in the Chinese culture, but it is not just an occasion where we give reverence to own ancestors.

Come join us as we perform both Tibetan and Chinese transmigratory prayers for all sentient beings.
