About the Triple Celebration

Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii will commemorate the Triple Celebration on September 7 & 8, 2024 at the Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu. The theme is “Sharing the Joy of Nembutsu Together: Our Living Heart of Gratitude,” and the keynote speaker will be Rev. Dr. Takashi Miyaji. A number of workshops will be offered.

The year 2023 marked the 850th anniversary of the birth of Shinran Shonin, the founder of the Jodo Shinshu Buddhist tradition, and 2024 will be the 800th anniversary of the establishment of the Jodo Shinshu teaching and the 135th anniversary of the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii. Accordingly, in 2024, we will observe commemorative services and workshops on those auspicious occasions.
