Ho’onko Eve Service (1/15/22 at 7:00 p.m.) and Ho’onko Day Service (1/16/22 at 9:00 a.m.)

Pay it forwardHo’onko is an occasion for us to show our gratefulness for Shinran Shonin, the founder of Jodo Shinshu tradition.  Shinran Shonin revealed the vow of Amida Buddha which pledges to save all from suffering and bring the utmost bliss to all without fail.  Let us listen to the compassionate calling voice of Namo Amida Butsu:  “Come as you are.  I shall embrace you no matter what.”
