New Year Message for 2021

May 2021 – Year of the Metal Ox be a happier and more auspicious year for you and your loved ones, bringing an end to this pandemic which has caused so much suffering.

On January 2, the Abbot of Tamon-in and teacher to many of us, Reverend Ichishima Shōshin, performed goma in honour of Bishamonten (Vaiśravaṇa) and prayed:

May the COVID-19 pandemic end soon and may we be granted Wisdom and Compassion through the Power of the Holy Fire Ritual of Bishamonten.
