[Weekly Wheel] Episode #051: Why We Have Obon
Reverend Ellen Crane discusses: why do we have Obon? Obon is a special celebration within Buddhism, most popularly identified by its Bon-Odori (盆踊り: Bon dance).

We honor their contributions to the "causes and conditions" that brought us to where we are today, and join with them, in memory, and in Namo Amida Butsu.
