As part of the JSBTC Board’s interim fall meeting, Bishop Marvin Harada from Buddhist Churches of America (BCA) was a special guest speaker via Zoom on Saturday, Sept 26th. We were very pleased that Bishop Harada was able to join us!
Here is the LINK TO THE VIDEO of his special lecture where you will also get to see Robert Sensei receiving his Kaikyoshi Certificate in addition to hearing an excellent dharma talk.
Bishop Harada spoke on JI SHIN KYO NIN SHIN: the passage from Zendo, which he describes as a “motto” for what ministers should follow, that having shinjin and sharing that with others is the most difficult of all difficulties, but to share the Dharma is how we truly express our gratitude to the Buddha. He says that we should not think that being a minister is an easy occupation, nor should leaders think that it is easy to lead our temples to truly share the Dharma.
