Lets' Bon Dance!

 Kauai Soto Zen Temple and Hanapepe Public Library are co-sponsoring a wonderful series of Video-Discussions, titled "The Japanese American Experience on Kauai" at the Hanapepe Public Library Meeting room.


Being invited by Mr. Gerald Hirata,  I attended to the presentation of "Aloha Buddha" and made comments after watching video.  I thought this was such a wonderful service to the community and it was no wonder amazingly-lots of people go to the Kauai Soto Zen Bon Dance.  I deeply realized that excellent attendances has excellent reasons.

Tonight from 6:00 p.m. at Hanapepe Library, they do have another presentation of "Let's Bon Dance!" and I have been asked to talk about "religious and cultural meanings of O-Bon."  Sorry at the last minutes, I hope to see you there.   As always, my explanation should be something unique and interesting, too, I hope.
