This year, in addition to the Ullambana Dharma Function, a Buddhist Dharma talk series has been specially organised for the public.

The Ullambana Sutra

The Ullambana Sutra celebrates the virtues of filial piety, gratitude and compassion. It describes how Venerable Mahamaudgalyayana in his meditative state saw his late mother in great suffering in the hungry ghost realm. He could not bear to see his mother suffering as a hungry ghost and sought help from the Buddha. The Buddha instructed Mahamaudgalyayana to make offerings of food and other basic necessities to the virtuous assembly of the Sangha (monks) at the end of the rain retreat (15th day of the 7th month in the lunar calendar). The merits gained from this noble act of giving helped to liberate Mahamaudgalyayana’s mother from her suffering. This is the origin of the Ullambana festival.
