We welcome you to join us via Zoom Meeting from the comfort and safety of your own home on Wednesday, June 9 for this free Dharma Study Class.
6:00 p.m. Shōshinge Sōfu Chanting
The chanting of Shōshinge embodies the heart of daily Nembutsu practice in Jodo Shinshu Buddhism. Join us to experience the settling of the mind through focused breathing and meditative listening.
7:00 p.m. Reading and Discussion
In this session we will reflect upon the Dharma truth expressed in the lotus an expression of pure awakening that blossoms, not in pristine clear water, but from the messy muck of everyday life.
All foolish beings, whether good or evil,
When they hear and entrust to Amida’s universal Vow,
Are praised by the Buddha as people of vast and excellent understanding;
Such a person is called a pure white lotus.
