Qing Ming, also known as Tomb Sweeping Festival, is observed by the Chinese every year the world over to remember and pay respect to their ancestors and dearly departed.


In line with this, Thekchen Choling will be conducting a memorial service of confession with merits dedicated to loved ones, as an act of filial piety to repay and remember their acts of kindness. One highlight of the occasion is an altar dedicated to honour the founders of the 160 surnames from The Hundred Family Surnames, which aims to help trace back one's roots to his first ancestors.
