Our 4th Virtual Statewide Dharma School Gathering!

The service portion will feature Dharma School student emcees representing each of our Hongwanji districts. Acting Rimban Yuika Hasebe from the Hawaii Betsuin will be our guest speaker and will also present a message in the Adult Breakout Room.

Dharma School students will be in their own breakout rooms creating haiku based on the theme, “Sharing Our Joy,” then sharing their creations once all participants return to the main meeting room.
