2022 SPRING VIRTUAL NEMBUTSU SEMINAR
Sponsored by the Honolulu & Oahu Hongwanji Councils and the Office of Buddhist Education
Building Sangha Together:
Nurturing Dharma – Centered Communities
Saturday April 30 | 9a – 11a (HST)
with Reverend Blayne Higa
Kona Hongwanji Buddhist Temple
Community has always been a strength of Shin Buddhism in America. Innovative and responsive community building grounded in the Dharma has enabled temples to thrive for more than a century. However, the traditional ways of building Sangha have been less effective as we face new challenges during this time of pandemic. Rev. Blayne will explore what it means to be Sangha in today’s world. How do we journey together as spiritual friends? And how can we nurture an authentic community of fellow travelers inspired by the Buddha’s teachings? Participants will have an opportunity to cultivate Sangha through a facilitated group discussion.
