Annual Jodo Buddhist Observances


Observing Buddhist services is one of the most important forms of devotion.   When we enter the Temple and face Amida Buddha while reciting the Nembutsu and chanting the sutra, we feel oneness with Amida Buddha.   We feel peace in our minds and gain encouragement and inspiration to live better lives.   Buddhist services provide the opportunity to devote time to the Buddha, refresh our mind and realize our true selves.   It is also a time to meet with the Sangha (members), to share and enjoy the fellowship.  By participating in Buddhist observances we nurture our Buddha nature and become compassionate and better people to serve our family and community.
