White Path message by Rev. Yugo Fujita for November 2017

Dear Buddhist Temple of Salinas Members,   
Hello, this is Yugo Fujita. I hope you are doing well under Buddha’s compassion.   
I would like to thank all the people who came to the Keirokai event. I think I saw a lot more people this year than last year. Thank you very much to all the people that brought delicious foods and entertained the seniors at the Keirokai even with your busy schedule. We enjoyed the food and the entertainment. The event was a good opportunity to show our appreciation to all the senior people who have been supporting our temple for many years. I think it is a wonderful gesture. I also thank Mr. Larry Hirahara who served as the chairman of the event, and all the people who helped to prepare for the Keirokai and cleaned up afterwards.
At the end of October, we will have our CD Nembutsu family conference and in November, we will have the YBA Pancake Feed, Senior Luncheon and BWA Memorial Service. Please make an effort to attend these events.    
It has been one year since I arrived to the Buddhist Temple of Salinas and I have had a wonderful opportunity to share the Dharma with all of you. Thank you very much. This is my first opportunity to be a BCA minister and I am so grateful for your patience, understanding and support, and I hope that I can continue to enjoy this time with you in the years ahead.   
I understand that I still have much to learn to become a minister for all of you, and I will do my best and work harder for our temple so that we may all continue to enjoy and live with the precious Amida Buddha Teaching.    
I apologize that I have not had much chance to visit all of you, but I will make more effort to do so. 
When you have any question about Buddhism, please ask me any time. I welcome your questions.  My email address is yugougo11@gmail.com.
