SPECIAL SERVICES THIS MONTH:
This month on September 24th at 11:30 AM, we will be celebrating Higan-e (Autumnal Equinox) Service. Higan is an abbreviation of "To-higan" with "To" meaning "to arrive" and "higan" means "other shore." This expresses the idea that the Buddha guides people from this worldly shore to the other shore of the Pure Land. During O-Higan, people in Japan return to their homes and visit their family cemeteries and temples. Special services are conducted for a period of one week during the equinox to pay their respect to their ancestors just as they do during Obon. We hope that you will join us in-person or online for this special service.
