For today's Dharma Talk, Rev. Kuniyuki reviewed a fundamental teaching of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, the Four Noble Truths.
- Life is suffering (dukkha)
- Suffering is caused by greed, anger (aversion), and ignorance (not knowing)
- Stopping suffering can be achieved by eliminating greed, anger, and ignorance
- The way to eliminate greed, anger, and ignorance is the Eightfold Path
After the service, the sangha participated in First Sunday Family Activities. This month, members young and young-at-heart enjoyed a variety of Valentine's Day-themed crafts including valentine visors and heart-shaped pillows.
