Amida Buddha’s boundless compassion always reaches each one of us, with no discrimination or distinction. Once we realise Amida Buddha’s supporting arms, which are always trying to embrace each of us, we will discover a life of appreciation. The life of appreciation is the way of life as a Jodo Shinshu follower. Let us live our faithful daily lives appreciating Amida Buddha’s wisdom and compassion reciting Namo Amida Butsu, and try to help those who suffer. I wish all readers of the bulletin safe, happy and meaningful days throughout the year.
