The Ghost Festival, also known as the Hungry Ghost Festival in modern day, Zhong Yuan Jie or Yu Lan Jie (traditional Chinese: 盂蘭節) is a traditional Buddhist and Taoist festival held in Asian countries. In the Chinese calendar (a lunisolar calendar), the Ghost Festival is on the 15th night of the seventh month (14th in southern China). In Chinese culture, the fifteenth day of the seventh month in the lunar calendar is called Ghost Day and the seventh month in general is regarded as the Ghost Month (鬼月), in which ghosts and spirits, including those of the deceased ancestors, come out from the lower realm. Distinct from both the Qingming Festival (in spring) and Double Ninth Festival (in autumn) in which living descendants pay homage to their deceased ancestors, during Ghost Festival, the deceased are believed to visit the living.

On the fifteenth day the realms of Heaven and Hell and the realm of the living are open and both Taoists and Buddhists would perform rituals to transmute and absolve the sufferings of the deceased. Intrinsic to the Ghost Month is veneration of the dead, where traditionally the filial piety of descendants extends to their ancestors even after their deaths. Activities during the month would include preparing ritualistic food offerings, burning incense, and burning joss paper, a papier-mâché form of material items such as clothes, gold and other fine goods for the visiting spirits of the ancestors. Elaborate meals (often vegetarian meals) would be served with empty seats for each of the deceased in the family treating the deceased as if they are still living. Ancestor worship is what distinguishes Qingming Festival from Ghost Festival because the latter includes paying respects to all deceased, including the same and younger generations, while the former only includes older generations. Other festivities may include, buying and releasing miniature paper boats and lanterns on water, which signifies giving directions to the lost ghosts and spirits of the ancestors and other deities. #china #buddhism #taoism #ghostfestival #ghost #Darkfringeradio

I don’t usually post film photos on here but I’m working on project of the photos I took in China over the last 5 years. This is a celebration of Zhōngyuán Jié or Hungry Ghost Festival where paper replica offerings (in this case a boat sized boat filled with gifts) are burned in ritual. Southern Taiwan, 2016. Who wants to buy a book?

There is a ghost festival in Dansai, which we missed sadly, but we did make it to the ghost museum. The ghost mask heads are made from half folded earthenware steamers; the faces from the base of a coconut branch; and the nose made from carved soft wood. Small pieces of cloth are then sewn on to cover the shoulders #GRO2018 #GlobalRally2018 #Dansai #GhostFestival #Thailand

Ghost festival - the costume is a religious celebration specifically in this northeastern province to celebrate the return of Vessadorn prince or different incarnated life of Bhudda. It also is a tradition to ask for annual rain for blessing and abundant crops. They are actually cute!#thailand#bhuddism#ghostfestival #nationalgeographic #mekongdelta #blog#travel

Said to be one of the one of the loudest and most spectacular in Isaan, the ‘ghost festival’ (or The Phi Ta Khon) involves local villagers dressing in ghostly costumes and parading the streets singing and dancing. The festival primarily surrounds the Buddhist merit-making holiday of ‘Bun Luang’ or ‘Boon Prawat’ and is a true representation of Isan belief.

9th Sept 2017

Preparation for the Hungry Ghost Festival are underway.
On this day they say that the realms of heaven and hell are open. Beautiful paper houses liked these are made and then burnt in a ceremony dedicated to their ancestors. Sometimes we could see food offerings and elaborate meals being served to empty seats on the streets!
