Dharma Gem Festival

In the past, people that consume Laba congee thinks that it can relieve one from calamity and increase one’s wisdom, thus when it’s the 8th day of December of the lunar calendar, people will go to the temple to consume a bowl of Laba congee.

Till today, branch temples of Fo Guang Shan will prepare Laba congee for the devotees, government departments, companies, businesses to foster relationships. I feel that in future Laba congee can become a cultural heritage.
