Ohigan falls in September 23, 2020 this year.
Ohigan literally means “other side” in English. Some says Higan, but it’s the same thing.
It’s a special week for Buddhist and send gratitude to our ancestors.
Happiness of our ancestors will influence our happiness.
This is a concept of Ohigan and the reason of why we send gratitude to our ancestors.
In Japan, people think of Ohagi on Ohigan as we believe that adzuki bean is believed to wipe out negative energies. It connects us to the nature.
