Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi® holds All Souls events at each of our three temples annually. This practice follows Master Moy Lin Shin’s wishes to heal the sick and soothe the deceased. All Souls begins this year with Taoist chanting ceremonies at our Wong Dai Sin Temple today. Ceremonies will also be held at the International Centre, near Orangeville, next weekend and at the D’Arcy St Temple from August 13 till August 15.
Each year the gate of the realm of the dead is opened for the first half of the seventh lunar month, and the souls of the deceased, including any lost and hungry souls, can be blessed and receive offerings and gift packages from their families or friends. Most importantly, the souls are invited to come and listen to the chanting. We hope that they will listen to the wisdom in the sutras, and become free by resolving any attachment, entanglements, or conflicts they had during their lifetimes.
