Minister's Message

Issue March 2018

Dear members of the New York Dharma Center

It seems spring is almost around the corner. How are you, everyone?

March 5th was the eightieth anniversary of the founding of Rissho Kosei-kai.

Our President said: “The cornerstone of the history to this day, as we observe the eightieth anniversary of our organization’s founding, has been built upon the unsparing dedication by our Founder and Cofounder, as well as a number of leaders and members preceding us. During this most significant year, and looking toward the one-hundredth anniversary of Rissho Kosei-kai, I hope that each of us will be firmly resolved to move forward creatively and unceasingly to repay our debt of gratitude to our predecessors.”

I deeply feel the importance of returning to the origin.

And once again, I am realizing that, here and now, I am caused to live and how very fortunate I am. I am profoundly appreciating the importance of awakening with gratitude  

Moreover, I wish to continue to walk the Buddha Way together with all of you.

I believe this is, indeed, the way to repay our debt of gratitude to the Buddha, the Founder and many leaders preceding us.

 

Now, I have something I must inform you.

For five years since I had been assigned the role as minister of New York Dharma Center, I have sent monthly newsletters. At this time, I decided to stop writing the newsletters.

For a long time, it was a one-way letter from me, but I felt I was having a personal conversation with each of you through those letters. Perhaps it was because of that.

I was very grateful for I felt I was becoming closer and closer with everyone with time.   

Thank you very much for keeping company for so long with my unrefined writings.

 

May I ask you for your continuous support.

 

Gassho
