Eitaikyo (Perpetual Memorial Service)

"Eitaikyo" is Japanese word and short for "Eitai-Dokkyo". "Eitai" means "perpetual" and "Dokkyo" means "reading Sutras". Therefore, this service is observed with the hope that a temple will continues perpetually and the Buddha Dharma will be transmitted to future generations. We can listen to the Buddha Dharma at our temple today, because many people have sustained temples and Sanghas. They wished that we all have the opportunity to listen to the Buddha Dharma. This service is dedicated to all those who lived and died as Buddhists in due respect of their contribution to the growth of the local Sangha.
