Honoring one's ancestors is
a common tradition among many cultures around the world. In
Japan, honoring the ancestors has long been observed through
a traditional service: Urabon.
The origin of Urabon is based on the story of one of Sakyamuni's
Ten Great Disciples: Maudgalyayana. Maudgalyayana was famous
for his supernatural powers, but there was a world where he
could not use his power to save his mother.
Nichiren Shonin shares Maudgalyayana's story in his Urabon
Gosho; however, this is not just a story revealing how Maudgalyayana
saved his mother. We hope that you read this gosho and consider
how service to others can become an important part of your
own life and practice.
