"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."

The Path to Gratitude

"We don’t practice to achieve anything—not enlightenment, good karma, a favorable rebirth, or material rewards. We practice simply to give thanks for what we have received." This is a quote from an excellent summary article of Jodo-shinshu Buddhism by Jeff Wilson

Obon Celebration

Yearly summer celebration to remember those who have gone before us and be grateful for those we have now.
