Zhongyuan Festival或者是Hungry Ghost Festival

中元节英文简介

Just as Halloween is for Americans, the “Hungry Ghost Festival” is for Chinese. Ghost Festival is one of Chinese traditional occasions, which is taken very seriously by the Chinese. This festival usually falls on the15th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar. The Ghost Festival, some places say the Hungry Ghost Festival, is also called Half July (Lunar), Ullambana, which is closely related to Buddhism, and zhongyuan jie which is the Taoism saying and Folk Belief.

就像万圣节对于美国人一样,中国也有鬼节。鬼节是中国传统节日之一,并且被中国人认真看待。这个节日通常是阴历七月十五。鬼节(有些地方翻译为饿鬼节),又叫七月半,佛教称之为盂兰盆节,中元节是道教的称法,同时也是一种民间说法。

It is believed by the Chinese that the dead become ghosts roaming between Heaven and Earth unless they have descendants to care for them during the Ghost Festival. During this month, the gates of hell are thrown open to free the hungry ghosts who then wander to seek food on Earth. Some even think that the ghosts would seek revenge on those who had wronged them in their lives. However, more people remember their ancestors on this day. The Ghost Festival becomes a time for remembering the importance of filial piety. The reason why the Chinese celebrate this festival is to remember their dead family members and pay tribute to them. They also feel that offering food to the deceased appeases them and wards off bad luck. People now release river lights as an important activity during this time, since it is said that river light can comfort and warm the homeless ghosts. In some areas, visitors may also see small roadside fires, where believes burn paper money and other offerings to appease the restless spirits who have temporarily been released from Hades.

中国人认为除非一个人有子孙后代能够在他死后在鬼节这天悼念他们,否则人死后会变成鬼魂在天地之间游荡。在七月,地狱的大门会打开放出饿鬼,这些饿鬼会在凡间寻找食物。一些人更认为他们会向那些害死他们的人复仇。但是,更多的人在这一天祭奠他们的先人。鬼节成为一个子女对先人尽孝的节日。中国人庆祝这个节日的原因是纪念他们家中死去的成员并且悼念死者。他们相信祭品能安抚死者,消除厄运。放河灯是人们纪念鬼节的重要活动,因为据说河灯能给无家可归的孤魂野鬼以慰藉和温暖。在一些地区,外来者会看见路边一小堆一小堆的火,因为人们相信烧纸钱或其它东西能安抚刚从地狱出来的痛苦幽魂。

中元节祭祀

中元节——祭祀

中元节又称“七月节"或盂兰盆会",为三大鬼节之一。中元节是道教的说法,"中元"之名起于北魏,有些地方俗称"鬼节"、"施孤",又称亡人节、七月半。根据古书记载:"道经以正月十五日为上元,七月十五日为中元,十月十五日为下元。"中元节与除夕、清明节、重阳节(除、清、九)等三节,都是中国传统节日里祭祖的四大节日。《道藏》载:"中元之日,地官勾搜选众人,分别善恶……于其日夜讲诵是经,十方大圣,齐咏灵篇。囚徒饿鬼,当时解脱"。民间则多是在此节日怀念亲人,并对未来寄予美好的祝愿。

道教节日能与传统民书相应,主要基于同一宇宙观:即天、地、水三界,被神格化为天官、地官、水官所统辖的三界府署,民间通称的"三界公",便是以三官泛指三界众神。中国东汉末年,天师道便已综合前道教期的宇宙观,首过即需上"三官手书",分别投于天、地、水中,表示向三官忏悔罪过,以祈求平安。经历六朝时期的发展后,三会日与三元思想结合,唐代官方的提倡,上元、中元、下元、等三元日定型化,成为祈求玄元皇帝(太上老君、老子)的三元节日,皇帝率百官参与节日仪式。唐、宋以后,已成为民俗节日。

正月十五汉族称上元佳节,乃庆元宵,古已有之;七月十五汉族称中元节,祭祀先人;十月十五汉族称下元节,乃食寒食,纪念贤人。欲了解更多中元节资讯请点击》》》中元节的来历和习俗
