Shotsuki Meinichi Services

For April, May, June, July, August and September 2020

English Dharma Message: Rev. John Iwohara










Due to the "stay at home" order that has been issued by the County Health Department in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Gardena Buddhist Church has had its doors closed since April, 2020. At the time we were hopeful that the temple would open sooner rather than later.


Unfortunately, six months have passed. During this time the temple has been exploring on-line and off-site options for holding services. Because we did not want to delay any longer, and because we feel that we are now able to hold a meaningful service on-line, we are reinstituting our monthly Shotsuki Meinichi Service.


In restarting our services we offer multiple videos, one for each of the six month that we were not able to hold a service at the temple, and from October we will post a new video service monthly. We thank everyone for your continued support of and confidence in the temple, your patience and your understanding. Although we are still not sure when we will be able to hold services at the temple, until we are able please stay safe, and keep healthy.
