Ancestor Blessing is an opportunity that True Parents established to share the Marriage Blessing with our family members and ancestors who were not able to receive it during their lifetime. This year, we will have the unique opportunity to participate in a USA Ancestor Blessing Tour that will take place in Chicago on Nov. 3-4.
"My hope then is that all of you can liberate all your ancestors and lead them to the Marriage Blessing and I hope you can accomplish this mission of making your ancestors absolute good spirits. This is the responsibility that you have been blessed with as Blessed Families."
Ancestor Liberation is the initial process of sharing the Blessing with our ancestors.
To join an Ancestor Liberation Ceremony, fill out the Ancestor Liberation Form and send it to the appropriate location. Forms must be sent in advance of the event. The conditions necessary for Ancestor Liberation can be viewed in the FAQ. Contact the event coordinator for further details about the ceremony.
The Chan Yang Session is a ceremony by which we cleanse our spirit.
Each event during the tour will hold a Chan Yang Sessions in conjunction with the Ancestor Liberation Ceremony. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join for this chance to cleanse ourselves and the spirit of America.
True Parents' established the tradition of Hyojeong Wish Fulfillment Papers based on their concern for the wellbeing of our families.
Each event during the tour will be an opportunity to write a Wish Fulfillment Paper and make the donation. A condition is also associated with writing a Wish Fulfillment Paper, which can be found on the Cheongpyeong website.
When you offer one (or more) Wish Fulfillment Papers and participate in the Offering Ceremony, the sinful records of your Blessed ancestors will be erased. The content of the Wish Fulfillment Paper can be for anything—it does not need to be about the ancestors.
