We are excited to announce the return of in person Dharma School for the 2022/23 term which starts on September 18, 2022, following Dharma service. Most notable change, besides returning in person, is Dharma School will be held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, instead of every Sunday.
Reverend Yuki Sugahara became the resident minister of the Oregon Buddhist Temple June 1, 2017. He is originally from Shimane Prefecture located just north of Hiroshima. He comes from a temple family on both his father’s (Kōrinji) and mother’s (Gokurakuji) side.
