Nirvana Day

Death of BuddhaCommemorating the passing of the historical Buddha into parinirvana, a special ceremony will take place in remembrance of this event. This will be followed by meditation, chanting and a talk on death titled, “Our Greatest Fear”.

In this talk, learn about death from the Buddhist perspective. What do Buddhists mean by the statement, “nothing is born, nothing dies?” Is there eternal life? How does Namu Amida Butsu come into the picture of living and dying? Two short readings from the books, No Fear, No Death by Thich Nhat Hanh and River of Fire, River of Water by Dr. Taitetsu Unno will be discussed. Presented by Rev. Daishin Senpai.
