New Year! *** New Year’s Greetings *** Gensho Hara, Bishop A Happy and Peaceful Year to

A Happy and Peaceful Year to you all! May the Compassionate Light of Amida Buddha shine upon you and your family throughout 2012. Last year marked the 800 th Grand Memorial of our founder, Honen Shonin. Despite the devastating earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear reactor

crisis in Japan and natural disasters throughout the world, Jodo Shu tem-

ples observed Saint Honen’s memorial with the utmost reverence.

waii, the Grand Memorial service was held on September 18, 2011, on the occasion of the Kyokukai Convention, at the Betsuin.

Honen Shonin stressed the belief in Amida Buddha’s original vow (hongan) and to call upon Amida Buddha’s sacred name wholeheartedly to secure salvation in this world and the world to come. In an age of social and political turmoil and chaos, Master Honen encouraged all people to live their lives following the path of Nembutsu, calling Amida Buddha’s holy name—Namu Amida Butsu. “Namu” means “I take refuge in” or “to throw oneself to”, “Amida” stems from the Sanskrit Amitayus (Eternal Life) and Amitabha (Infinite Light). So that Amida Buddha is also called Muryoju Butsu, the Buddha of Eternal Light, or Muryoko Butsu, the Buddha of Infinite Light. “Life” symbol- izes compassion and “Light” symbolizes the wisdom that shines upon our ignorant minds. “Butsu”

New Year’s Greetings

Cont’dGreetings from Bishop Hara:

means Buddha, the Enlightened One, the Awakened One. Just as Master Honen did, we too are living in a time of turmoil, our temples, our society, and our world at large face many challenges, let us put our belief in the Nembutsu and work together for the future of Jodo Shu and our community.

Our Kyoku functions this year are as follows:

* Aloha State Meisho Sr. YBA Convention on June 8–10, 2012 in Honolulu;

* Laypersons/Rengo Fujinkai Biennial Convention on September 21–23, 2012 on Kauai;

* Kyoku Executive Board Meeting on September 21–23, 2012 on Kauai.

Our ministers are working to publish a ministers’ handbook and sermon book. The new edition of our Otsutome prayer book will be published. Three of our Hawaii temples will commemorate their centennial celebrations this year—Lahaina Jodo Mission will celebrate their centennial on October 20 to 21, Haleiwa Jodo Mission on November 10, and Kapaa Jodo Mission in spring 2013.

As we look at our calendar this year, our temples and Kyoku have another busy year ahead. There is a Buddhist saying, “If one blossoms, flowers of the whole world blossom.” For our temple, each of you is a flower that makes your temple blossom beautifully and harmoniously. In welcoming the Year of the Dragon, let us ask for Amida Buddha’s guidance for a bright and prosperous year. Let us devote ourselves to our temples and communities and live our lives happily and fruitfully.

With Gassho,

Gensho Hara, Bishop

Message from Kyodan Board President

Gensho Hara, Bishop Message from Kyodan Board President Aloha, I hope everyone had a wonderful 2011.

Aloha,

I hope everyone had a wonderful 2011. Let’s make 2012 even better! As Buddhists, it is our desire to spread positivity to every person we come into con- tact with, through love and compassion. We can achieve this with a smile, a kind gesture, and thoughtful words.

When things don’t go well, try to resolve them constructively and with a positive state of mind. While this may be difficult at times, it is important to keep things in perspective: We are so lucky to be alive, in a place that provides us with many privileges, to have family and friends who love us, and to be surrounded by the beauty of nature. When we remind ourselves of what really matters, we no longer have ‘problems,’ but merely challenges for us to overcome constructively.

Every night, let’s ask ourselves if we left a positive or negative impact on the people we inter- acted with that day. By thinking this way, and striving for 100% positive impact on everyone we meet, we can all help to better the world.

I wish you all happiness, good health, and prosperity!

With Warmest Aloha,

Jon Riki Karamatsu President, Jodo Mission of Hawaii

Vol. 14 The Three Jewels (Jan. 2012)

Taking refuge in the Three Jewels, or Buddha , Dharma , and Sangha is a fun- damental practice in Buddhism. It is the fruit of our practice. As we continue to prac- tice, the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha reveal themselves to us more fully. When we encounter these three Jewels directly and experience their capacity to bring about happiness and peace, our faith is strengthened even further.

Buddha: Everybody has the potential to come true Buddhahood. When we take refuge in Buddha, we must also understand we ourselves have the nature of Buddha. Dharma: Dharma books and talks are valuable, but the true Dharma is appeared through our life and our practice. When the noble Eightfold Path and the Nembutsu are practiced, the living Dharma is there. Sangha: Sangha is the fourfold community of monks, nuns, laymen, and laywomen, as well as the other elements that support our practice. Even if we have a deep appreciation for the practice, it can be difficult to con- tinue without the support or friends. When members of a Sangha live in harmony, their Sangha is holy. When you build a Sangha that has joy and peace, you’ll see the ele- ment of holiness there. Sangha is the door through which we enter the heart of the Buddha and the Dharma.

The Three Jewels are related each other. When you make peace with another member of your Sangha, you are looking after the Buddha. The Dharma cannot exist without followers. Each Jewel contains the other two. This can be realized in every moment of our life.

Vol.10 “Who is O-Jizo-sama?”

You can see a statue of Ksitigarbha (Jizo ) by the gate of Jodo Mission. He is one of the most popu- lar Bodhisattvas, and the number of his statues is the largest in Japan. Most people feel a closeness to Jizo, fondly calling him “O-Jizo-san” or “O-Jizo-sama.” Who is Jizo? Why is O-Jizo-sama so popular?

Originally, Jizo is believed to be the guardian

of the earth. He protects all beings in the world from

the time Sakyamuni Buddha passed away until Maitreya (Miroku) will appear to become the next Buddha. Jizo has been worshiped as

a great leader for Buddhists during Buddha’s ab-

sence. Most Jizo figures have a bald head and wear plain garments just like a Buddhist monk. They al- ways smile gently. They often hold a jewel in their left hand and a long staff in their right hand. These characteristics show that Jizo walks anywhere and fulfills people’s wishes with great compassion. In the Sutra, Jizo made an original vow to save all living

and fulfills people’s wishes with great compassion. In the Sutra, Jizo made an original vow to

things. Jizo also vowed not to become a Buddha until his work of salvation is done. That is to say, he has voluntarily stayed in the cycle of rebirth and worked hard to save all beings in the six destinies.

O-Jizo-sama protects the weak and gives prior salvation to them. In eve- rything, he counts himself last and puts others before him. The compassionate Jizo is a good example for Buddhist ministers and members.

Jizo is a good example for Buddhist ministers and members. O-Jizo-Sama Blessing Through the generous dona-

Gyoki-e means the me- morial service for Honen Shonin. Honen Shonin, who is a founder of Jodo Shu, passed away on January 25th, 1212. He was 80 years old. After Honen Shonin passed away, his disciples and believers started to have a memo- rial service for him on the 25th of every month. The biggest cere- mony was held on 25th of Janu- ary every year. This service was held not only locally in Kyoto but it spread all over Japan. In those days, the word “Gyoki” meant the anniversary of the deaths of the Emperors or their wives. The word “Gyoki” was such a respect- able word for the Emperor's fam- ily.

Gyoki-e

(Honen Shonin’s Memorial Service)

Three hundred years later, after Honen Shonin passed away, the Emperor Gokashiwabara mandated Jodo Shu to call the anniversary of Honen Shonin’s death “Gyoki”. Since then, peo- ple called his annual memorial service “Gyoki”. This occasion implied that Honen Shonin was clearly accepted and revered by the Emperor and the people. Our Gyoki-e service will be held on January 22nd at 10 a.m. Please join us. Chutoba is available for this Gyoki-e service. At this service you may also honor your deceased ancestors with a Chutoba prayer. See above Chutoba order form.
