Nirvana Day Ceremony

We will hold a special ceremony in observance of Shakyamuni Buddha’s entrance into Nirvana. On this day marking the passing away of the Buddha, we will make a special incense offering to the Buddha, with a vow to strive to become those entrusted by the Buddha, maintaining the vow of diligent practice of the bodhisattva way.  We will also be renewing membership for each member.  The cost for renewing membership is $30.   We look forward to seeing you Sunday! 

Our service consists of a sutra recitation, meditation, a Dharma Talk, and a hoza (circle of compassion).  Social time and refreshments follow the service. 

Rissho Kosei-kai offers traditional Buddhist teachings with modern everyday application, to help bring peace and harmony to the family and society. Through these teachings, we are able to recognize the buddha-nature in ourselves and others. We support each other and our community in the development of awareness, compassion and peace.

The path of Buddhism is inclusive and available to all. We welcome you to join us in our sangha!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
