8/30/2020 – Sunday Dharma Message – Buddhist Values Part 5 – The Middle Way

8/23/2020 – Sunday Dharma Message

Hello everyone,

This is Rev. Harry. Hoping that the smoke isn’t affecting you too much, and very concerned for those who have been directly affected by the fires.

Between the heat wave & the smoke (and several BCA meetings!) I did not record a Dharma Message this week. 

At age 88, Shinran Shonin, the founder of our school of Buddhism, wrote in a letter: 

“…The Tathagata taught the truth of life’s impermanence for us fully, so you must not be distressed by it.”

And yet, being faced with constant change and difficulty can be distressing.

If we were truly awakened then maybe nothing would bring us down, but as ordinary beings it is easy to get upset. With the Nembutsu, let’s find a middle way between these two extremes!

Although we have to be apart during this pandemic, we are still a Sangha. May the Teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha and the Wisdom and Compassion of Amida Buddha help us face these difficulties. 


Rev. Harry Gyokyo Bridge
