The 7th month in the Chinese lunar calendar, widely associated with the opening of the gates of Hell, is a month of auspicious significance in the Buddhist faith. It is also a time when sentiments of spiritual joy and gratitude come forth. For many years, Tzu Chi KL & Selangor has been organizing a series of fellowship-cum-prayer sessions based on the teachings expounded in the “Ksitigarbha Sutra” in conjunction with the Auspicious Month. As part of this year’s festivities, the Tang Mei Yun Taiwanese Opera Company presented “The Story of Bright-eyes Rescuing Her Mother” to local audiences to impart the importance of filial piety and the true meaning of salvation.
