About the Speaker:   Kenneth Kenshin Tanaka grew up and attended Dharma School in California. While being an active member of the Young Buddhist Association (YBA), he aspired to study Buddhism, which he did at Stanford Univ. (B.A.), a temple in Thailand, Institute of Buddhist Studies (IBS)(M.A.), Tokyo University (M.A.), and Univ. of California at Berkeley (Ph.D.). After teaching at IBS and serving as a resident priest in a Jodo Shinshu temple in California, Dr. Tanaka is currently Professor and Dean of Buddhist Education at Musashino University in Tokyo. His publications include The Dawn of Chinese Pure Land Buddhist Doctrine (The State Univ. of New York, 1990), Ocean: An Introduction to Jodo Shinshu Buddhism in America (WisdomOcean Publication, 1997), and Amerika bukkyo (in Japanese, meaning “American Buddhism”) (Musashino University, 2010).
