In this seminar, Rev. Sonam Wangdi Bhutia, Head Priest of Kathmandu-Hongwanji in Nepal, will discuss his encounter with Shin Buddhism, and guests will learn how transforming our everyday perceptions creates a richer appreciation of our lives.

Raised as a monk in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Rev. Sonam encountered Jodo Shinshu, a Japanese Pure Land school, at age 28.  From this meeting, he goes on to found Nepal’s first Hongwanji temple. Hear how the Buddha’s story resonates today in Shakyamuni’s birthplace.

A coffee break and lunch are included in the donation.
