New Honmon Butsuryu Shu LA temple

Post by rory » Sun Jan 26, 2014 3:06 am

Gassho everyone; just wanted people to know there is a new Honmon Butsuryu Shu temple in Los Angeles the priest is Rev. Taimei Tamura
additionally I heard from my dharma friend Dominic Busher that HBS ordained a Western priest to spread the teachings to non-Japanese, which is excellent news. I wish them all the best. Here is a dharma talk in English by Rev. Fukuoka

Namu Kanzeon Bosatsu
The Tai-ching states "the women in the realms of Mara, Sakra and Brahma all neither abandoned ( their old) bodies nor received (new) bodies. They all received buddhahood with their current bodies (genshin)" Thus these verses state that the dharma nature is like a great ocean. No right or wrong is preached (within it) Ordinary people and sages are equal, without superiority or inferiority
