All Souls Festival at Wong Dai Sin Temple
Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi® holds All Souls events at each of our three temples annually. This practice follows Master Moy Lin Shin’s wishes to heal the sick and soothe the deceased. Each year the gate of the realm of the dead is opened for the first half of the seventh lunar month, and the souls of the deceased, including any lost and hungry souls, can be blessed and receive offerings and gift packages from their families or friends. Most importantly, the souls are invited to come and listen to the chanting. We hope that they will listen to the wisdom in the sutras, and become free by resolving any attachment, entanglements, or conflicts they had during their lifetimes.
About Wong Dai Sin
Wong Dai Sin is a Taoist immortal who is particularly well known and venerated in Hong Kong as well as communities in Guangdong and Zhejiang provinces. According to his story, although he was a simple shepherd boy, he displayed great virtue and was able to cultivate immortality by practising the Taoist arts on Mount Chisong (“Red Pine”) in Zhejiang. Afterward, he became known for “helping all and promoting goodness.”With this temple, we hope to help spread his spirit of sincerity, perseverance and compassion and provide a place for all who wish to benefit from the practice of Taoism.
