“Higan” means “the other shore.” It is an abbreviation for “to-higan,” meaning “reaching the other shore (of nirvana).”

During the vernal and autumnal equinoxes when days and nights are of equal length, temples conduct Higan services that encourage us to meditate on the harmony of nature and devote ourselves to the realization of this harmony in our inner lives.
