To all Buddhists, Lady and Gentlemen

Dear All

The Vu Lan Festival – Festival of the hungry ghosts - has returned to the heart of Buddhists all over the world to remind us of the day when we show our gratitude to our ancestors, grandparents and parents. To commemorate this important and holy event, the Congregation of Linh Son will hold the Vu Lan festival on:

Sunday 23 August 2015, i.e. the 10th day of the 7th month of the year of the Goat
at Linh Son Temple, 89 Rowe Tce Darra, from 10.00am

We cordially invite all Buddhists from everywhere to spare some precious time to join us in praying for the transference of merits to our parents, longevity and luck for those who are alive, for those who were deceased to attain the highest ground of Nirvana.
