2015 Obon Festival!
Thanks to all the Sangha who helped put on this fabulous community event. It does take a Sangha to run an Obon Festival. In fact, it takes a Sangha and many of their friends and family to run one. The hidden joy comes with the knowledge that we all were appreciated by the attendees. We also had the opportunity to work with each other and to get to know each other better. This is an added plus.
Obon is an opportunity to pay our respect to our ancestors. But Obon is also a time where we can see the many, many people who hold this temple together. They were in action last Saturday. Thanks to everyone who lent a hand. It was much appreciated and everyone's help resulted in a great event that was written up in the Ventura County Star newspaper.
More importantly, Sensei Nori gave it a thumbs up!
