Walking together every moment.
Helping us to remember our ancestors.
For our fruits of Buddhahood
For our last crossing to the other shore.
The Fall Equinox Higan is a time for us to remember our ancestors and
all sentient life. It is also a time for us to think about the great
patience and vow that was taken by Odaishisama. Through his faith and
understanding of our great obligations to our ancestors, we transcend
time and become one with them, as an enlightend Buddha.
The fruits of this life are Buddhahood and each of us will take with us
these fruits as we discover our final crossing. Odaishisama has taken a
great vow to wait patiently for each of us to discover our own
Buddhahood and welcome us to our last crossing to the other shore.
