The Sejiki Celebration is a traditional Japanese Zen Buddhist ceremony honoring the ancestors, calling forth the spirits of the untamed wilderness, and giving nourishment and a wish for peace. This is one of the most important Sōtō Zen Buddhist observances of the year, a time to remember and call forth the spirit realm by making offerings of food and wishes of peace for our departed loved ones, as well as to any ‘hungry ghosts’ (including our own neglected or unsatisfied body-mind states).
