Listen Carefully to the Dharma (January 21)

At the recent Ho’onko Service, our guest speaker introduced us to to the three principles for “How to listen to to a Dharma message.”

• I listen as if I am listening for the first time.
• I listen as if the message is for myself alone.
• I listen as if this is the last chance to listen to the Dharma.

This Sunday, Rev. Adams will share his appreciation for how these principles can guide us in a variety of everyday situations.

From The Letters of Rennyo Shonin (Gobunsho) Fascicle 3, Letter 5:

Now, listen carefully, with the ears of one aspiring to emancipation and with your heads lowered in reverence. You may realize the thought of faith and joy.
