Explanation of "First Seven" and "Seven Sevens"

       Amituofo! Wishing everything auspicious for fellow disciples!

This coming Friday, Instructor Wu Zizai, who is erudite and talented, will teach the 5th Course of True Buddha Online University, Etiquette of Life. He will cover Chapter 4, What Family Members of the Deceased Should Know, Lesson 4, Explanation of "First Seven" and "Seven Sevens."

"Doing Seven" is a folk funeral custom in East Asia. According to the custom, a memorial service is held every seven days after a person's death, and each seven-day period is considered a phase. The memorial services continue in this manner until the seventh phase, and are considered complete after 49 days. This 49-day cycle is known as the "Seven Sevens."

How should relatives of the deceased conduct themselves in accordance with this custom? What is Living Buddha Lian-sheng’s teaching on this custom?

Please stay tuned for the instructor’s detailed explanation!

To encourage student interaction, the True Buddha School Online University has specially organized a WhatsApp Etiquette of Life Students Group. Students in the group will check in to share insights, exchange ideas, encourage each other, and make progress together. Anyone participating in Etiquette of Life is welcome to join the group.
