Event description
Koyasan Buddhist Temple's Bishop will perform the Monthly Goma Ritual Service at 1:30 PM on the Last Sunday of each Month.

About this Event

Kobo Daishi, the founder of Shingon Buddhism, introduced the “Goma Fire Rite” from China. The ceremony originated about five thousand years ago in India. The rite, called the “Fire of Great Wisdom” (Daichika), leads us to emancipation, removing the darkness of ignorance and bringing the light of enlightenment. At the Goma service, attendees destroy their bad karma and offer prayers through prayer wooden sticks (gomagi) that are burned in the ritual.

If you would like to participate and have a stick offered on your behalf, please register by 11:00 am on Sunday, the Day of Service. A donation of $5 per gomagi (wooden stick) is requested. Please email brandon@koyasanbetsuin.org with your name and wish.

Please use the eventbrite website to register and gain access to the live stream.
