Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii, Office of the Bishop, is proud to announce the YouTube premiere of “Jodo Shinshu Buddhism: A Celebration of Joy and Gratitude.”
The year 2019 marked the 130th Anniversary of the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii. To commemorate the occasion, the idea of a video to capture the thoughts and feelings of our diverse membership — including some of our younger members from each District of Hawaii Kyodan — was proposed to the Propagation Grant Committee, which funded the project.
Mahalo to all individuals who were interviewed and videotaped. A special mention of appreciation to Mrs. Irene Nakamoto and Mr. Mark Nitta who devoted much time and energy towards the completion of the video. Also, much gratitude to ‘Ōlelo Media Company. Due to circumstances, there was a delay in the completion of the video. However, it turns out that its release is very timely and hopefully will be appreciated under our situation with COVID-19.
“Jodo Shinshu Buddhism: A Celebration of Joy and Gratitude” first premiered July 8, 2020 on ‘Ōlelo 53. Now, we are pleased to bring the video to YouTube and encourage you to watch the presentation as part of this year’s virtual Obon. Please enjoy! Thank you very much!
Rev. Eric Matsumoto, Bishop
