White Path message by Rev. Yugo Fujita for September 2017

Dear Temple members,

Hello this is Yugo. I sincerely hope that you are enjoying comforting breezes of the Dharma these warm summer days.

In mid-August, we had Dr. Tanaka as a guest speaker for the Tri-Temple Rennyo Shonin Memorial Service. I would like to thank everyone that helped to make this event possible and successful. Some people organized and supported the service, recorded the Dharma talk and prepared the food for the event. I think all of you did a good job. Tanaka sensei and Shinseki sensei were both very pleased with the event. Next year, we will have a Tri-Temple Hanamatsuri event in April. The guest speaker will be Rev. Henry Adams. I am sure that he will share a great Dharma talk with us.

YBA had a Coast District YBA Activity event. We got to know many members of YBA from other temples. Starting this year, YBA will become a bigger organization with more members. Please support and encourage the YBA organization and its members. Also, Dharma School will begin to hold classes again starting on Sep 10th. Please also support this activity.

I went to Reno to attend the All Buddhist Church of America Ministers Meeting from Aug 14th to Aug 17th. I met many ministers there, and felt great deal of gratitude in being the minister at Salinas Buddhist Temple, and I recited the Nembutsu. Even though there are many capable and experienced ministers out there, I felt very privileged and had the good fortune to be your minister and share in the teaching of Buddha with all of you. I will continue to treasure this opportunity and express my gratitude to the congregation.

Namo Amida Butsu, Yugo

8月14日から8月17日までBCA開教使会議のためリノへいきました。ミーティングでは多くの先生方 にお会いさせていただきました。その時に感謝の気持ちになり、お念仏を「南無阿弥陀仏」とお 称えさせていただきました。それは多くの素晴らしい先生方がいる中で、サリナス仏教会で仏法 を皆様と一緒に聞かせていただけるご縁をいただいたからであります。大変有難く、嬉しく感じ ます。この素晴らしいご縁を大切にしていきたいと思います。
