AbstractWritten from the Jodo shinshu tradition founded by Shinram (1173-1262) perspective, this article offers insights into Buddhist memorial observances. Memorial services are critical to the grieving process upon the death of a loved one. For the Japanese American Buddhist community in Hawai'i and in North America, these services ritualize the sentiments of reverence, appreciation, and respect for elders.
