Buddhists plan joint service
Members and friends of Kahului, Wailuku and Lahaina Jodo missions will gather at 9:30 a.m. Sunday at Lahaina Jodo Mission, 12 Ala Moana St., for the annual Jodo Buddhist joint service and fellowship gathering.
Jodo Buddhist practice Nenbutsu meditation, or reciting the mantra “Namu Amida Butsu,” expressing gratitude to the Buddha and to their ancestors. At this service, a special prayer will be offered for the Gannenmono, or first group of Japanese immigrants to come to Hawaii 150 years ago.
Resident minister of Lahaina Jodo Mission, the Rev. Gensho Hara, will deliver the dharma message.
