A common Chinese cultural belief interprets the 7th lunar month as a time when ghosts roam freely amongst the living, and the 15th marks the day when the door to the underworld is said to remain open until the 30th. In order to appease these ghosts, people began the tradition of feast offerings. With time, these offerings turned into gatherings with meaty meals.

Our founder, Master Cheng Yenteaches us that instead of following these customs, we should devote our time toward carrying out good deeds each day, cultivating good karma with all sentient beings. By following a vegetarian diet, we can protect our planet, gather good karma, and be in harmony with the earth. Positive change begins with just one person, and if we all choose to eat consciously, we can help halt the progression of climate change one day at a time. Let’s all give it a try!
