Message from the Bishop

Tatsuya Aoki Sensei

Welcome to the year 2019! Looking back, the year 2018, with all its ups and downs, has given us many moments to be grateful for. With gratitude for the year past, I look forward to the new year ahead. One of our senior members said to me, “Aoki sensei, I just try to take it one day at a time; and I am grateful for every day.” This also reflects the very essence of Buddhism. Within each day, let us try to take it a moment at a time, and be grateful for every moment. To live with such day-to-day, moment-to-moment appreciation, we call a life of Nembutsu.

Namo Amida Butsu.
