Sharing Kobo Daishi’s teachings through workshops and newsletters


Dogyokai (Pilgrims’ Meeting)

In today’s modern age, time seems to move too quickly, and there is a plenitude of information and conveniences.
Though circumstances may change, our fundamental essence as humans remains the same.
Amidst the chaos and constant flux, have you taken time to examine yourself and look within?
If you stop and look behind you, you’ll see that your life is supported by many people and things around you. Take time to give thanks back to Buddha for this life, showing your gratitude by purifying the temple halls. By focusing your entire attention on the task of cleansing the spacious halls and temple where Kobo Daishi is enshrined, you will see things in a new light as they are slowly revealed before you.
