Today's Dharma Talk was given by Rev. Sumikawa on the subject of compassion. He told us the old Buddhist story of King Shibi, the hawk, and the dove.
Today was also our first Remembrance Day at Kailua Hongwanji Mission. The fourth Sunday of each month will be Remembrance Day for those family members, friends, and pets who passed away during this month in any year. The names of those being remembered were called and incense was offered before the chanting of the sutra.
