Every day, in our Buddhist prayers, we remember our ancestors and those who have passed away. Here is a Gosho quote from our founder, Nichiren Daishonin, written in the 13th century:
Since it is the supreme filial piety to direct one’s benefit to parents who are living, how much more praiseworthy is it to do so for parents who are deceased!
This Memorial Day weekend, visit our Buddhist Temple. Join us on Sunday, May 24th, for our Introduction to Buddhism meeting. There will be a brief lecture on the Buddhist concept of the Ten Worlds by our Chief Priest. Learn how Buddhists remember and honor their deceased family, friends and ancestors. Learn how to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and properly use the Juzu Beads, Buddhist prayer beads. You will also have a Q&A with our Chief Priest. The meeting begins at 2:00 pm and ends about 3:15 pm. For more info, call or email the Temple.
