Koloa Jodo Mission will hold a Nenbutsu Meditation Night (Dharma Talk and Meditational chanting of Nenbutsu) on Friday, April 22 at 7:00 p.m.
The special guest speaker all the way from New York, Gary Link, is a long-time Buddhist practitioner in the Pure Land Buddhist tradition and a board trustee of the Buddhist Association of the U.S. (BAUS) in New York. His Dharma Talk, "Pure Land (Jodo) Buddhism in the U.S. and the Bodhisattva Ideal," introduces Jodo Shu, or the Pure Land sect, and the potential of this Buddhist teaching in the U.S. and discusses the idea and role of the bodhisattva (enlightened being) in Pure Land Buddhism.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the teachings of Pure Land (Jodo) Buddhism, which has had a long history in Hawaii as one of the major Japanese Buddhist traditions in the islands. All are welcome to join in the Nenbutsu and Dharma Talk at Koloa Jodo Mission (3480 Waikomo Road, Koloa). For more information, please contact me at 635-8530 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
