"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."

- Shakyamuni Buddha


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
