Dear Friends of the Dharma,
This month we will celebrate the 80th anniversary of the founding of Rissho Kosei-kai. How grateful we all must be for this, for it means we encountered the Dharma (maybe for the first time), our sangha, and of course the Buddha. Your life is never the same after joining Rissho Kosei-kai. And I am so happy that many of you will be able to participate in the special Skype service with RKNY church on March 4. It is important to make this day special so we feel the importance of this day, and to be grateful to Founder and Cofounder for their efforts 80 years ago. And this inspires us to vow to move forward into this 21st century with Rissho Kosei-kai, doing our best to be bodhisattvas for our world.
