Since the sun sets exactly to the west on the day of the Autumn Equinox, we send our thoughts to the Pure Land of Amida, which is located to the west. During this service, we also hold reflect upon ourselves and pray for our ancestors. In the Mieidō (the hall that houses the image of Hōnen), we display the Kangyō Mandara, an illustration of the Western Pure Land.
