November 2015 Newsletter

Please come to our Sunday Services on November 1 and 22, 2015 at 10 a.m. to hear lectures on the New Otsutome Book. As stated in the “Foreword” to the New Otsutome Book, the Hawaii Council of Jodo Missions (HCJM) in commemoration of the 800th Grand Memorial of our founder Honen Shonin, decided to publish a revised version of the Otsutome book which contained English translations of the sutras by the late Bishop Dwight Ryokan Nakamura. The HCJM ministers organized a committee to revise the Otsutome book with Rev. Shinri Hara as the editor-in-chief.

Unlike the previous Otsutome book, which separated the English and Japanese sections, the two languages have been brought together to make it easier for both those who are familiar with Japanese and those who are not to read aloud and understand the passages of the sutra. The new format consists of Japanese reading, Chinese charac-ters, English pronunciation and English transla-tion line by line in the hopes that everyone who reads it will come to have a greater appreciation and deeper understand-ing for Honen Shonin’s teachings as well as Buddhism in general. Please come and learn more about our Otsutome Book!
