Dear friends of the Dharma,
Happy New Year! Best wishes for a happy, healthy, peaceful 2019. it seems hard to believe it was just a few weeks ago that I said goodbye to Rev. Fujita from all of us. Please take a few moments to read her farewell message to us. We also welcomed Rev. Hatakeyama to NY Church, and i hope we will all get to meet him soon. Please read his welcoming message as well. And finally, President Niwano also sends the world his New Year’s message. All of these are attached to my emailed newsletter. They each send us their wisdom, compassion, and love. I look forward to our new year with you, and you will see from our Schedule posted on this website that we will have what i hope is a good agenda for everyone. We will continue to be guided by President Niwano, study the stories in the Lotus Sutra, review our basic Buddhism principles, and enjoy a new DVD class on different religions. i hope to see many of you soon!
