January issue of Pureland Path is up on our website! Starting with Rev.Yuki's warm and meaningful Dharma message, the January issue has a lot of important and fun information. And since we are not sending paper copies right now, please share our virtual newsletter with everyone who you think may be interested!
As we are reaching the end of 2020, and look back about this interesting year, we cannot express enough gratefulness to Rev.Yuki and the whole OBT Sangha. We are so lucky to have Rev.Yuki as our resident minister. Not only his messages are always so thoughtful, he leads us in recording, editing and airing of all the services! ( He shares his Dharma messages every morning at 8am, and every Sunday at 10am.) And in spite of not being able to meet physically, the whole Sangha was very active this year -- because of that, we were able to do big events as virtual Obon and the Benefit Concert.
We do have some exciting things planned for the year 2021!
Dharma School and Dharma Exchange are back. We are doing them on alternating Sundays. If you are interested to know more about them, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
