Throughout the year we host several events and activities for our youth and young adults. These activities vary in nature and include a mix of the Buddhist teachings as well as a good dose of socializing and fun with friends.
We think it’s important for children and youth to forge strong friendships in a safe environment. We all have experienced the many pressures of everyday life so it is our goal, through this program, to provide a strong community of friendships and understanding of the Buddha Dharma where young people can feel accepted and supported throughout their lives.
“To have a place to return to”
Rev. Rikisho Kuriyama
Those who do not have a place to return to,
No matter how well and smooth life may become
Come to a deadlock and will be in piteous plight in the end.
But those who have a place to return to
No matter how difficult life may seem
Never come to a deadlock
and are able to live with great dignity in great joy.
It is because they are always connected with something eternal and infinite.
