This Sunday is the Ho-Onko service. Ho-Onko, meaning a gathering to express our indebtedness and thankfulness, is a memorial service in honor of Shinran Shonin. It is also an occasion to express our gratitude to Amida Buddha for having awakened us to life’s supreme meaning. Ho-Onko is the most important Jodo Shinshu ceremony. Our guest speaker is Reverend Ashikaga.
