Happy New Year!

Traditionally in Japanese Buddhism, New Year's Eve is a time when we symbolically erase our 108 bonno, or blind passions, and have the opportunity to start the New Year afresh. For 2008 let us make a resolution to re-dedicate ourselves to the Three Treasures and together let us awaken to the peaceful bliss of Enlightenment.

May there be peace in the world and may the Buddha's teachings spread!
