“Purification of Mind”
We offer a Weekly dharma service in English every Sunday from 4: 00 PM. Including meditation, the service will proceed to a recitation of liturgy such as three refuge, prayers, and reciting various Buddhist scriptures in order to purify, tame, and develop our mind.
In the middle of service, a monk, Buddhist minister, or dharma friend will present a talk about various Buddhist teachings, by which we can apply the Buddhist wisdom to our daily living and also to our community.
By offering weekly public service, we would like to share the wisdom of what the Buddha taught. With pleasure, we invite everyone, who wants to make Buddhism together in this land.” Anyone who is interested in Buddhism or “making Buddhism” to better appear in America can join our weekly service.
