Sarana Affirmation Ceremony
Conducted by Bishop Rev. Kodo Umezu on Sunday, Dec. 8

Internal Event

By participating in the Affirmation Ceremony, one receives a Buddhist name (homyo).  This is a unique and rare opportunity to receive your homyo from the Bishop of the Buddhist Churches of America.

In this Shin Buddhist Ceremony, one takes the important step of affirming one’s reverence for the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, as well as one’s determination to tread the path to Buddhahood.

The Sarana Affirmation Ceremony will be officiated by Rev. Kodo Umezu, Bishop of BCA, on Sunday, December 8 at 9:30 am in our Main Hondo, before the altar of Amida Buddha and Shinran Shonin.
