Just around the corner…

Posted by on February 25, 2013

Visiting a Buddhist Temple had been on our list since the beginning.  So when we finally checked into it, we found one in Culver City in a non-descript building that looked more like a home circa 1960’s.  We went to the morning service at Venice Hongwanji Temple.  There was a handful of friendly and welcoming worshippers who helped us get settled with our prayer books.  While most of the service involved chanting in Japanese, we were actually able to participate – the books included phonetic spelling of the words.  We may not have understood a word but after the service I felt somehow calmer.  Even if we never attend again, our spiritual outings have been beneficial, opening our minds up to other approaches to worshipping.
