No Light Shines Brighter than Wisdom (September 11)

On Sunday, September 11 at 9:30 a.m., we welcome you to join us at the San Mateo Buddhist Temple as we begin a new Dharma School year!

Our theme for this year will be the Sanbutsuge (Verses in Praise of the Buddha), a section of the Sutra on the Buddha of Immeasurable Life, that we often chant during our services. This week Rev. Adams will share the story of the Sanbutsuge and how the Buddha’s wisdom is the light that guides us through the journey of life.

Your radiant countenance is majestic,
And your dignity is boundless.
Radiant splendor such as yours
Has no equal

Even the blazing light of
The sun, moon, and mani-jewels
Is completely hidden and obscured,
And looks like a mass of black ink-sticks
