Morning Service (Obon)

OBON - During the Obon period each family welcomes and remembers ancestors and loved ones who have passed away. The origin of Obon service comes from the story of one of the Buddha's major disciples, Maudgalyayana and his mother. In the story Maudgalyayana saved his mother from the realm of hungry ghosts by offering merits gained by his Buddhist practice. Nichiren Shonin teaches us that the merit of the obon servcie extends beyond seven generations of our ancestors but to all living beings in the universe. We will be holding the holiday service and a vegetarian potluck meal. Everyone is welcome.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
