This 07 August, 2013 marks the beginning of the month long Chinese 7th Month Of The Hungry Ghosts Festival. According to Chinese traditional beliefs, the gates of Hell will open and connect to the human realm, permitting ghosts to be released to roam among the living.
During this period, some people will make it a point not stay out too late for fear of “bumping” into these spirits. On the fourteenth day of the lunar 7th month, come evening time, the Chinese would make offerings of candles, joss sticks, cooked food, fruits and some Hell money to the wandering souls and spirits to appease them.
Other people would participate in merit generating spiritual practices for their departed ancestors at temples. 💡

2) BRC for Departed Relatives & Friends
