This service is held in observance of Shakamuni Buddha’s death on February 15. As part of the service, we display the Nehanzu (Picture of Nirvana) in the Mieidō (the hall that houses the image of Hōnen). The Nehanzu depicts the Buddha’s many disciples and all living things lamenting as the Buddha is about to pass into nirvana (a state of complete extinction).
