Annual Pasadena Buddhist Temple's Annual Obon festival will be held for 2 days in July. There will be Japanese food, crafts, games, cultural exhibits and demonstrations. Each evening, dancers from around the Southland gathered around the yagura and danced the traditional Obon Odori (dances). Dancing is scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm each evening. Obon odori is to dance for joy. Everyone is invited to join in to just dance and be accepted as we are.

Obon Background
"Obon is a Buddhist observance that was originally observed in Mahayana Buddhist countries, including China, Korea, Japan and Vietnam. Obon season is a time to express our gratitude to loved ones who have passed on before us. Without them, we would not be who we are today, due to the basic tenet of interdependence. In Japan, Obon has been held since 657 A.D." - Rev. Patti Usuki.

Obon Family Service will be held on Sunday at 10:00 am in conjunction with Hatsubon Service for families that have lost a loved one since the last Obon with Rev. Gregory Gibbs presiding. July monthly memorial service (Shotsuki Hoyo) will be held on Sunday, at 10:00 am.

Obon comes from the story of Maudgalyana, a disciple of the Buddha, who sees his mother suffering in "hell". Maudgalyana goes to the Buddha for advice and is instructed to make a gift (a vegetarian meal) to his fellow monks. He did so, and immediately his mother is saved from the miseries of hell. Overjoyed, he and his fellow monks clapped their hands and danced in joy. Obon, therefore, is an occasion for rejoicing in liberating others and ourselves from suffering.
