A Close Shave

On the occasion of Father’s Day, we look to wisdom of Rennyo Shonin for inspiration and guidance. Rennyo lived deeply in the Nembutsu while fathering and raising 27 children (13 sons and 14 daughters). It is said that he washed their diapers himself.

This Dharma Talk was given during San Mateo Buddhist Temple Zoom Dharma Service on Sunday, June 21.
