The Spokane Buddhist Temple (927 S. Perry Street) will be conducting a “Seventh Day Memorial Service” for the victims of the March 11th Japanese earthquake and Tsunami, on Friday, March 18th at 6 p.m. We will be accepting donations for relief efforts in Japan. Everyone who attends will be able to ring the Kansho (temple bell) after the service in memory of the victims. In rural Japan, the temple bell is repeatedly rung as a tsunami warning.
Everyone is welcome to attend a Seventh Day Memorial Service in the sanctuary. The Seventh Day Memorial allows us to reflect on the fleeting nature of life and offer incense to affirm our spiritual connection with those who died.
The temple is collecting donations, made out to the Buddhist Churches of American (BCA) Social Welfare Fund, which will be combined with donations from all Buddhist Churches of America temples to be sent to relief agencies in Japan. Call: (509) 994-4231.
