In these busy times when our attention is pulled in many directions at once, Rev. Adams will share a Dharma Talk about the peace of mind we receive from having a single clear direction for our lives, inspired by the following verse from the Sanbutsuge.
Those who come from the ten quarters Shall rejoice with pure hearts; Once they reach my land, They shall dwell in peace and happiness.
