 2. Ancestor Liberation Ceremony (Generations 1-210)


    1) To liberate any Second or Third Generation who has passed away, whether blessed or unblessed, please prepare the liberation donation in accordance with the collateral liberation standard.


    2) All members from around the world can liberate all possible groups of ancestors until 210 generations at any of the 2-day workshops. However, the 25,000 won registration fee is required for each 7-generation group of Father’s side/Mother’s side ancestors and GMF/GMM. (This is the condition for 2-day workshop participation.)


    3) If your grandmother, grandfather, or parent, who is included in generations 1~7 passes away after the ancestor liberation for generations 1-7, they are considered as a “Person who passes away after liberation.” You must register after writing the name and the relationship with you, and offer a donation of gratitude if you are a direct descendant; otherwise, you must liberate them as collateral, with a full donation.


    (It is also possible to liberate just by sending the application form and the donation to Cheongpyeong Link)


    4) The donation for the collateral liberation varies with the nationality of the spirit to be liberated. Please refer to the attachment file for the group standard.


    5) When you apply for the collateral liberation, please fill in the marital status of the spirit (married/unmarried).


    6) There is no need to register the collaterals for an Ancestor Blessing Ceremony if they were married. They will receive the blessing automatically when you bless your ancestors at the Ancestor Blessing Ceremony. But, for those spirits who were liberated through a collateral liberation, as unmarried 1st generation, you need to apply for their blessing when there is a “Blessing Ceremony for the Spirits of Unmarried 1st Generation Members.”  (The schedule will be announced separately).


    7) When you attend an ancestor liberation ceremony as a representative for someone else, a registration fee for yourself, and for the person whom you are representing, is required.


    8) You can participate in the ancestor blessing ceremony after a 100 day period of time has passed, after having attended the ancestor liberation ceremony.

During the '2012 Autumn Cheongpyeong Special Great Works'

3. Materials to Prepare

Holy robes (including white socks, white gloves, etc.), blessing ring (you may use your personal ring), ancestor blessing donation MORE

4. Points to Consider

1) As much as possible, the individual who liberated a particular 7 generation set of ancestors should also participate in the Ancestor Blessing Ceremony to bless those generations


    1) Ancestor Blessing Ceremonies for generations 1-210 began from October, 2011 and will be held once a month. Those ancestors, who have passed 100 days from the day when they were liberated, and for which the liberation donation has been fully offered, can receive the ancestor blessing. There is an ancestor blessing ceremony on the third weekend of every month, and when their descendants attend an Ancestor Blessing Ceremony, they can receive the ancestor blessing (Schedule is subject to change).


    2) Starting from July, 2002 ancestors who have become Absolute Good Spirits through the blessing come to separate spirits from their descendants during the Chanyang Yeoksa of the Ancestor Liberation Ceremonies. (Angels work with members who have not blessed their ancestors.)


    3) Ancestors who became Absolute Good Spirits will be sent to their home automatically by Heung Jin Nim and Dae Mo Nim 40 days after the ancestor blessing ceremony. It is appropriate to conduct a simple welcome home service.


    4) When you attend the ancestor blessing ceremony, please prepare holy robes and blessing ring.


    5) The donation amount of the Ancestor Blessing for generation 1-7 is set according to national group (as of August 2003). This is offered once for the F and includes all four lineages (F, M, GMF, and GMM). However, if the four lineages are blessed at separate times, a blessing donation of gratitude (same amount offered for generations 8 and above) is made each time you register. It is possible to offer the blessing donation in installments, and to begin blessing generations 8 and above before full payment is completed.


    6) The Blessing donation of gratitude for generations 8 and above is offered per group of 7 generations. It includes all four lineages (F, M, GMF, GMM) if you are blessing them all at once, and is offered again each time you register to bless lineages in a particular generational group.
