SETSUBUN - Bean Throwing Ceremony

 

Setsubun service on Feb 4th is to celebrate the changing of the Winter Season to the Spring Season.  In the homes, a ‘mame-maki’ or bean throwing ceremony is held to drive out the evil spirits.  The beans are thrown and meant to pierce the devil’s eyes.  

 

Darumas are sold at the Setsubun Service as a symbol of Good Luck.  On the back side a message is written such as Good Family Health, Successful Business, etc. and the Darumas are blessed and taken home.  Come early to purchase and have your Daruma message blessed. Also fund-raiser raffles will follow the service. Raffle tickets are $20.00 donation per book or $2.00 donation per ticket, 10 tickets per book.

 

If you were born in the year of the Dragon and would like to be a bean thrower on stage, wearing Kamishimo (Japanese traditional costume) or without, please call the temple at (213)624-8658.
