Insights, Ideas, and Tips from Rev. Bob Oshita (“Retired Bob”)

Rev. Bob Oshita was resident minister of Sacramento Buddhist Church for 32 years when the Sangha temple community grew to more than1000 families and the Dharma School from 75 to 400 students, necessitating expansion of the Temple and Educational Facilities.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to learn from Rev. Bob’s decades of experience in making Jodo Shinshu Buddhism “immediately relevant” in people’s lives, at each stage of this unrepeatable life.

If we don’t make Jodo Shinshu immediately relevant in people’s lives, then Hongwanji membership will continue to dwindle and our temples will continue to close.
—Rev. Bob Oshita
