Dharma Talk from His Eminence Otani Koken, Shin Buddhist Hosshu [High Priest],
June 27th this is a Saturday Special Service 10:00am
The Supreme Primate from Tokyo's Temple of the Primal Vow will preside over a special Saturday service with chanting from the delegation of priests and a Dharma talk. The service will be followed by Buddhist Name Ceremony where members receive the Three Jewels and are given a Buddhist Name.

His Eminence Koken Mon-nyo Otani Hosshu is the head of the Higashi Honganji sect of Shin Buddhism (Pure Land Buddhism) and is also a cousin of Japan's Emperor. His is the biggest Buddhist sect in Japan with 15 million followers. He is the 26th grandson of Shinran Shonin - founder of Shin Buddhism. That is over 750 years of linage leading to this Dharma talk! We are happy to receive His Eminence and appreciate that due to his fathers great friendship with Rev. Daigan Matsunaga [Founder of RBC] we are offered this wonderful opportunity.

Buddhist Name Ceremony - This is often referred to as the KIKYOSHIKI CONFIRMATION CEREMONY and follows a 2600 year old tradition of Buddhist followers taking a name in the same clan as Gotama Buddha. An very important step in the individual’s journey on the Buddhist Way, participation in the ceremony confirms that the individual is ready to become ‘a disciple of Shakyamuni Buddha’ - The names are in the form of "Shaku" which means "disciple of Sakyamuni", and this is followed by a name/homyo made up of two syllables which are normally taken from a Shin Buddhist sutra or chant. The Kikyoshiki Ceremony 'confirms' that the individual has joined the followers of the teaching of Sakyamuni Buddha, a community that transcends geography and nationality.

This is an Historic visit - please participate and enjoy this great honor for RBC.

Buddhism and Psychology 
May 16th
 10am – 3pm
Residents of the tiny  kingdom of Bhutan have the highest happiness index in the world - and they are Buddhists.  What are the ways Buddhism works and does not work for sentient beings in Samsara?  Dr. Mark Unno will lead an insightful retreat at RBC looking at Buddhism and Psychotherapy. The Buddha focused on the end of suffering. To do that he asked the question How do we see what is real?
In Buddhism, there is a concept called viparyasta-citta, or upside down  views. We mistake what is unreal for real. We place too much emphasis on material success at the expense of the heart of love and co
mpassion. We focus on "power over" not on seeing the truth of connection brought by awareness.
How do we plumb the depths of our minds and hearts for what is real and sustaining when the world seems upside down? Rev. Unno’s presentation and discussion will draw from Buddhism and psychotherapy, and will be illustrated with case histories, biography, stories of life and death, family suffering, and addiction. The Morning session will be followed by a vegetarian lunch and the afternoon session.
Everyone is welcome General public, counseling professionals, Buddhist and non-buddhist - everyone!
