Live and Learn
IN THIS ISSUE
By Rev. Harry Gyokyo Bridge
T
here is a legend about Shinran Shonin at an early age that
tells the story of his becoming ordained at the young age of nine.
Shinran’s early life was very difficult. Although it is thought that he
was born into an aristocratic family, he became a monk on Mt. Hiei
at the age of nine. On the day that
nine-year-old Shinran went to get
ordained, it was evening, and his
master suggested that they wait until the next day. In response, Shinran is said to have spontaneously
composed the following verse:
We may think, I will view the
cherry blossoms tomorrow,
But a storm might arise in the
night.
It may seem unlikely that a
nine year old could come up with
a poem of such deep insight. Although we don’t know many details, he may very well have had to
encounter the fragility of human
life. If we look at his writings as
an adult, it is clear that he was a
very intelligent person, with deep
awareness of himself as well as the
Buddha Dharma. Perhaps he really had experienced and learned
about the truth of impermanence
by the age of nine. As we know, his
teachings helped countless people
encounter the compassion of the
Buddha – we are fortunate that he
continued to learn, study, and live
the Pure Land Way.
In this spirit of study, as we
celebrate Shinran’s birthday at our
Fujimatsuri service on Sunday,
May 19, we have two guest speakers! Both Hironobu Shojun and
Haruka Beppu are students from
Japan, currently studying at the
Institute of Buddhist Studies. There
will be both English and Japanese
Dharma Messages. Please help us
celebrate Shinran Shonin’s birthday
and come listen to the Dharma and
spend time with our Dharma Family and Friends!
In gassho,
Rev. Harry Gyokyo Bridge

he last couple of months have
been quite busy for the Oakland Jr. YBA. At the end of March,
we attended the Bay District Jr. YBA
Conference at SACBC. The theme of
the conference was “The Wizard of
Oz.” The guest speaker was Reverend Marvin Harada from the Orange County Buddhist Church. Delegates were treated to workshops
filled with knowledge, compassion
and courage. Special thanks to Reverend Brian Nagata for leading our
courage workshop. Thank you also
to Reverend Bridge. We did a Buddhist rendition of John Lennon’s
“Imagine”, and we took first place in
the talent show “Courage” section.
In April, the Jr. YBA volunteered

up. The highlight was the installation of our new officers. We have
three new members on the Executive
Board: Robert Noguchi, PresidentElect, Doris Okano, Recording
Secretary, and Norman Yoshida,
Financial Assistant. Thank you to
Robert, Doris, and Norman as well
as those who are continuing in the
same capacity as last year. I am especially grateful that Robert agreed to
be the President-Elect. There are two
new members on the Board: Norman Yoshida and Gloria Fujimoto.
February and March were months
of contrasts. I had an especially positive experience at the BCA National
Council Meeting this year. I have to
admit that I usually only interact with
BCO members, but this year I expanded my circle and really enjoyed
at the East Bay Buffaloes track meet
at Contra Costa College. Also, we
hosted a bento fundraiser. Special
thanks to everyone who came and
supported us, as well as the Li family for coordinating this successful
fundraiser!
We will be hosting our annual
Sangha Day Breakfast on Sunday,
May 11. Please come and enjoy a
complimentary breakfast on us!!
The Bay District Jr. YBA Volleyball Tournament will be held at
Alameda Point on Saturday, May
24th and Sunday, May 25th. This
year, Oakland will have four teams.
Please come and support us!
it. One of the reasons this happened
was the format of the meeting. We
were broken out into smaller groups
to discuss what the BCA Headquarters could do for the temples. This allowed us to get to know other temple
members in a more intimate setting.
Also Greg and Gina Chor from
Canada were very outgoing and hospitable. They invited a few of us from
the Bay District to their room where
we shared our thoughts on Buddhism
(and, oh yeah, drank a little wine). We
stayed up until 3:00 am; I felt like a 30
year old.
March brought some sadness to
me. A good friend of mine died of
cancer. When I think about what
happened to my friend, Marilyn,
I reflect on Rennyo Shonin’s White
Ashes. I saw Marilyn a few days
before she went to the doctor. She
looked the picture of health and was
not complaining of feeling ill. She
called me after seeing the doctor to
say that she had been diagnosed with
terminal cancer. I could not believe
it. She did survive for 15 months after the diagnosis for which her family
and I are grateful.
On a happier note, my family
celebrated my older brother’s 70th
birthday. It definitely was a joyous
occasion. One of my sisters and I recited a poem which was a lot of fun
to write (partially a roast). I wanted
to do in rap format but not being
musically inclined wasn’t able to do
it. Lucky for the guests!
It’s that time of the year. Our
Nikkoland Bazaar/Festival is
around the corner. I know that I
can count on everyone to help out.
Please mark it on your calendars:
June 14th and 15th.
Happy Spring!

he BCO Buddhist Education Committee and the
Women’s Association presented
a lecture by Dr. Mark Blum on
March 22. Those who attended
the presentation by Dr. Blum
were treated to an educational
and entertaining lecture about
Rennyo. We learned how Rennyo played a vital part in spreading teachings of Jodo Shinshu.
A recording of Dr. Blum’s presentation will be shown at the
church. Watch for the date in
the Busshin.
The annual Spring Luncheon will be held at the Mira

he knitting group met together on Thursday, March 17th,
with our instructor, Renie Yoshida
Grohl, who always works so hard
to assist us as we try to complete
the projects each of us is presently
working on.
Thursday, March 6, approximately 20 members traveled to the
newly opened casino, “Graton”, located in the city of Rohnert Park,
Sonoma County, about a 40 mile
drive from Oakland. It was a gorgeous day and the drive to and from
was enjoyed by all. The place was
very large and the machines somewhat differed from the other locations. Homeward bound, it didn’t
sound like anyone had become a
millionaire, but I think the trip itself
was enjoyed by all. Since the casino
is not presently allowing buses on
the site, volunteer church members
did the honors in driving us there.
We thank Don Kaneshige, Maya
Lawrence and Bruce Kawabata
for their generosity, taking time out
from their busy schedule to accommodate us. Also, thanks to Jean
Nakazono for her efforts in putting
this trip together.
In April, plans are being formulated to present a movie based on
the Fukushima disaster accompanied by music which I understand
was written specifically for the Tsunami that occurred following the
earthquake. Since this movie is quite
long, it was decided to be shown on
two different days. Our Rev. Harry
Bridge offered to handle the technical end of this showing. Thanks,

Rev. Bridge, we do appreciate your
ever helpful assistance.
Sometime in July, we are planning to visit the Japanese cemetery
in Colma, Ca. Following which we
plan to drive to San Mateo for shopping and that all important lunch.
Transportation will be handled by
volunteer drivers again. Unfortunately, we are all at an age where
we are dependent on the younger
members to assist us in the travel
sector. Please know that we are all
truly grateful for your kind act of
Dana.
At this time, the members wish
to express our grateful thanks to
Mrs. Maya Lawrence for her most
generous donation. Maya, you are
always working so hard to help us
all. We appreciate your Dana also.

A
Request
on
Behalf
of
our
Future
BCA
Ministers
As
active
supporters
of
the
Buddhist
Churches
of
America,
I
must
ask
for
a
moment
of
your
time
to
consider
the
following:
• In
our
contemporary,
fast
moving
society,
a
graduate
level
education
for
our
future
BCA
ministers
will
be
essential,
as
the
needs
to
serve
the
sangha,
likewise,
grows
ever
more
challenging.
• The
ability
of
our
ministers
to
know
and
understand
religions
outside
of
and
in
addition
to
Jodo
Shinshu
Buddhism
will
be
ever
more
critical,
as
many
of
our
current
and
potential
members
exist
in
very
diverse
communities.
• Ministerial
students
are
in
need
of
scholarships
to
study.
The
current
tuition
cost
is
$46,800.00
for
three
years
of
intensive
graduate
studies.
I
believe
we
can
all
agree
that
a
shortage
of
ministers
is
just
around
the
corner.
With
all
these
points
in
mind,
I
ask
you
to
please
consider
our
“Friends
of
IBS
Annual
Giving
Program”.
The
monies
we
collect
will
go
directly
to
the
IBS
Ministerial
Scholarship
fund,
and
will
be
distributed
each
year
to
assist
our
ministerial
students.
I
can
personally
assure
you
that
any
contribution
you
make
will
be
deeply
appreciated.
I
have
one
additional
favor
to
ask
of
you.
Please
help
us
spread
this
message
by
asking
your
sangha
members
to
contribute.
Thank
you.
Respectfully,
with
appreciation,
and
in
gassho,
Rev.
Seigen
Yamaoka
Vice
President

Dharma School News...
By Maya Lawrence
M
arch just flew by! We’ve been
working on our Hanamatsuri
Presentation which we hope you
will enjoy. March is a busy month
for everybody, so I am doubly grateful that so many of you find the time
to come to church. Thank you so
much. And thank you to the Senior
High School class for presenting a
lesson to our students using a book
called “Each Kindness.” In the book,
students learn that each kindness,
no matter how small, has an effect
– like dropping a stone into a pond
and seeing the ripples go out. Our
students decorated small rocks reminding them of each kindness they
can perform. We are also reminded
of the Golden Chain: I will try to
be kind and gentle to every living
thing…
On April 26, the Dharma School
Teachers will be attending the Federation of Dharma School Teachers’ Leagues Conference in Mountain View. There will be Family
Dharma Service at BCO on
April 27, but there will be no
Dharma School.
We are very grateful to our wonderful donors. Thank you to:
Roger and Karla Lee in celebration of Bryant Lee’s birthday
Mrs. Sachi Matsui for art supplies
Mr. and Mrs. Shig Naito for
stuffed elephants for the preschool/
kindergarten class
