Amitabha Jang Chog Puja was organized in conjunction with the Chinese calendar month of
Hungry Ghost Festival (7th month).
Amitabha Jang Chog Puja allows us to accumulate merits through making supplications,
offerings and confessions to Buddha Amitabha and is then transferred to the deceased to help
them in their purification and liberation. This will help the deceased in the Bardo and show
them the path to Enlightenment. During Amitabha Jang Chog, the name of the deceased
is written on a paper and then is burned in the process of the puja to symbolize
purification of all the gross and subtle defilements, obscurities and negative karma of the
individual by the fire of wisdom and thereby ripen their merit to be reborn in
Amitabha pureland of Dewachen.
