Southward Equinox - Heart of Reverence

The equinox is the time of year when day and night are the same length. In the Shin tradition, it is during this astronomical event when we commemorate Higan which means "Other Shore."  Higan is a community event to reflect on and rededicate ourselves to the Buddha's Middle Way. Come and join us to deepen your engagement with  the Buddha teachings.

This year's Higan talk will explore the source of Shin veneration and how do we express it in everyday life. To whom do we take refuge? What is the attitude behind our devotion?  What are the challenges to really experiencing true reality within us? How does interconnectedness play into our reverence? Presented by Rev. Senpai Daishin.

p.s. REMINDER - Hosted by the Buddhist Faith Fellowship. Even though just one or two people from Meetup have RSVPed, you can expect 35 - 45 people in attendance.
