New Altar

posted Jul 10, 2018, 9:40 AM by Steve Yoshinaga   [ updated Jul 10, 2018, 10:47 AM ]


The Oxnard Buddhist Temple has a wonderful new altar in the social hall.
The installation was realized thanks to six years of great effort by Mr. Bruce Arikawa. Dr. Victor Kato graciously painted the platform. We deeply appreciate their dedication to the temple and this project. Here we have Dr. Kato, Mr. Arikawa, and Rev Watanabe.....and the new altar.
