5:00 am | Welcome in the New Year with the traditional playing of instruments and offering the white offering scarves (katas) to the shrines.
6:00 am | Morning Fire Offering (Sang)
This special morning purification fire ceremony is an offering to all worldly gods and the 4 guests: Buddhas & Bodhisattvas; Protectors; sentient beings; and those with whom we have karmic debts. This practice pacifies war, encourages peace and averts sickness.
