Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Memorial: How We Remember (August 6)

As we remember the lives taken by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Rev. Adams will share impressions of the recent film “Oppenheimer” and consider how what we choose to remember and how remember the past impacts the way we live in the present moment, inspired by the following verse from the “Hymn of True Shinjin and the Nembutsu (Shoshinge)“:

[Nagarjuna] teaches that the moment one thinks on Amida’s Primal Vow,
One is naturally brought to enter the stage of the definitely settled;
Solely saying the Tathagata’s Name constantly,
One should respond with gratitude to the universal Vow of great compassion.
