The Urabon Gosho

The Lotus Sutra

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.
