On March 31, 2021, some sangha members dropped off fresh fruit and T-shirts to the Abundant Grace fellowship in Fort Myers for their distribution to the homeless. It is our one activity as engaged Buddhists during this time of COVID.
From January 24 through February 2, 2021, members of Rissho Kosei-kai of New York participated in the annual Midwinter recitation of the entire Lotus Sutra. This year for the first time it was done virtually at all Rissho Kosei-kai centers via Zoom. This is our way of cleansing our hearts and minds in preparation for the Asian New Year. It is a hard but important practice in our tradition.
On December 16, 2020, members of the Rissho Kosei-kai Fort Myers sangha brought their donations for the homeless to Abundant Grace Fellowship Church. The donations were placed in gift bags and then distributed. It was a wonderful activity for us to bodhisattvas in action for the Christmas holiday.
