Busshoe Ceremony

仏生会

Every year on April 8, Todaiji Temple’s Busshoe Ceremony is held to celebrate the birth of Oshaka-sama, or Shakyamuni Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. With the temple decked out in flowers, a variety of ceremonies are held for purposes of purification and atonement. It is also popularly tied to the arrival of spring. Parishioners pour sweet hydrangea tea over a statue of the Buddha at birth pointing to the heavens and the earth, and then enjoy some themselves. It is a time to remember the blessings of life and pray for peace.
