Sejiki Ceremony, Offering to Hungry Ghosts

In this ceremony we call forth the restless, unsatisfied yearnings of our life, inviting them to be known, cared for, and released – as well as raising the deep intention to nourish all hungry spirits in the world, and remembering departed ancestors and friends. Offerings of food are made, and we chant together for all hungry ghosts and departed spirits.
