Dear Dharma School families,

Immeasurable Encounterings: BCA Past, Present, and Future

YouTube Video of the Event

First we will honor the career of Rev. Kodo Umezu, recently retired minister and Past BCA Bishop.

Next we will hear from Regina Boone, Virginia photojournalist and granddaughter of Tsuruju Miyazaki, a Japanese immigrant and incarceree who never returned home after World War II. Carrying little more than a portrait and a name, Boone’s journey to discover what happened to her grandfather leads her to a faraway family butsudan.

The final segment will focus on the future with a message from our current BCA Bishop, Rev. Marvin Harada. We will share our vision to build the future of Buddhism in America through the Dharma Forward campaign and premiere a special video.

2/26/2021 – BCA Dharma Forward – Campaign

OUR FUTURE IS BRIGHT IF WE’RE READY FOR THE CHALLENGE

Interest in Buddhism is growing in America as people seek a better way to live in a self-centered, divisive culture. Our temples offer sangha: a community, a shared experience of the teachings, and a place to call home as we listen to the dharma together. The Institute of Buddhist Studies also offers sangha: a graduate school community of engaged scholars, practitioners, and future ministers.

These communities exist because of dedicated efforts over many generations to carry the dharma forward to us. In gratitude for the Buddha’s wisdom and compassion, now we carry the dharma forward with entrusting hearts. Our opportunity to grow is greater than ever, and the pathway to a bright future includes YOU!
