Karma and Your Relationships

Why do I feel lonely all the time?

Why do I feel like I’m just drifting through life?
Why can’t I find someone?

Why can’t I get a good job?

Why can’t I just not be angry?

Why can’t I seem to get ahead?

Why can’t I finish anything?

Why do my problems keep happening over and over?

Without understanding the Buddhist concept of Karma, you cannot adequately answer these questions.

Buddhism teaches life (a sentient being) and its environment (the external, insentient world where the sentient being lives) are not two, but one, contained in a single life-moment. Both life and its environment are the resultant manifestations of karmic causes accumulated from past existences.*

Visit Myosenji Temple

Sunday, March 5th, our Chief Priest will give a brief lecture on Karma and share with you the Buddhist answers the above questions.

  • Learn how to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and properly use the Juzu Beads, Buddhist prayer beads.
  • Have a Q&A with our Chief Priest.
  • The meeting starts at 2:00 pm and concludes around 3:15 pm. Open to the public.

If you have decided to become a Buddhist or are interested in learning how to become a Buddhist, after Sunday’s meeting (about 3:30 pm) Rev Sakabe will be performing the Acceptance of the Precept Ceremony, the ceremony where you become a Buddhist.
