Rennyo Shonin Washed Diapers (May 12)

On May 12, we will have our annual Parents’ Day Celebration with a family Dharma Service followed by brunch served by the Junior Young Buddhist Association. Rev. Adams will share a Dharma talk inspired by Rennyo Shonin, who was a father to 27 children and was actively involved their childcare, as expressed in the traditional record of his activities and sayings:

Since he was unable to employ a maid, the Shonin washed his children’s diapers himself, so I have heard.

(Thus I Have Heard from Rennyo Shonin (Rennyo Shonin Goichidaiki no Kikigaki), No. 146, translated by Z. H. Inagaki, p. 78)
