The BSC Summer Session has featured, and will continue to feature, noted national and international speakers for the benefit of its attendees. However, there is one rich source of Dharma learning and ideas that is as close as our own Nembutsu sanghas. These sanghas are made up of our ministers and lay people and their acquaintances within the State of Hawaii. They have much to offer if we take the effort to feature them. So, with that in mind the BSC Program Committee has started a new program, the Summer Dharmathon, that will rely on that pool of speakers.
