RKINA members gathered together on April 10, 2011 to joyfully celebrate the Buddha's birthday almost 2,500 years ago. Rev. Ken Nagata led the ceremony and shared President Niwano's message for the special day.
During the ceremony Dharma members poured sweet tea---the sweet dews of the Dharma Rain---over a small bronze Buddha statue. The ceremony also included a Sutra recitation to commemorate the wonderful occasion of the Buddha's birth.
