Connected to Truth
Dharma Family Service on November 6, 2022. For the Dharma School message, we look at one way we can remember how we are connected to truth. For the adult message, we reflect on a mother's final words to her daughter as a reminder of the profundity of life. Finally, in the Japanese message, we look at how Amida Buddha's Great Compassion enables all beings to live uniquely in their own way. Gassho (with palms together)
SACBC Fall Equinox (Ohigan) service
This episode is an abbreviated version of the Fall Ohigan service on September 25, 2022. Here, I talk about participating in the memorial service commemorating the initial completion of an official logbook of all 120,000 persons of Japanese descent who were incarcerated during WWII. This project was headed by Duncan Williams, faculty of USC. What can we as Buddhists learn from this traumatic experience that many of our sangha members had to endure?
Dharma Family Service for Southern Alameda County Buddhist Church on June 5, 2022. For the Dharma School, we examine how all beings are shining. For the adult message, we take a look at the significance of the Pure Land and what it might mean for us in our lives. Finally, for the Japanese message, we look at how Amida Buddha's Wisdom and Compassion shine upon us, giving us the hope to live in a world of uncertainty. Gassho.
