I thought this group will be interested in the interview of a bishop of Buddhist Churches of America (BCA), the Rev. Marvin Harada to discuss about ”Practical Buddhism and Truth Level Buddhism," and as a subtopic how Buddhism helps us to resolve the matter of life and death. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? But to truly experience Buddhism and get the benefit of Buddhism we need to go beyond “Practical Buddhism” and reach “Truth Level Buddhism.” How can we achieve that? Well, Rev. Harada will give us the taste of that in the Shin Buddhist way! You never know, you might even get a hint of how to overcome fear of death itself! Please join us for a short discussion of Practical Buddhism and Truth Level Buddhism! I guarantee that you will have a blast! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gElpULmQ2VM Just in case you missed the first practitioner episode of Shin Buddhism (True Pure land/Jodo Shin Shu) episode with Rev. Kenji Akahosh, please check it out before you watch the episode with Rev. Harada. To have your own a-ha moment in this episode, you might need a little bit of background information about Shin Buddhism. Here is the link of the episode with Rev. Akahoshi: https://youtu.be/QiXoVaxDCDE Rev. Marvin Harada was born and raised in Eastern Oregon on a family farm. He attended the Idaho Oregon Buddhist Temple in his youth. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Religious Studies. Following that, he attended and graduated from the Institute of Buddhist Studies, and then went on to Japan and studied for five years, for two years at Chuo Bukkyo Gakuin, and three years at Ryukoku University, completing a Masters Degree. He was assigned to the Orange County Buddhist Church in 1986 and served there until April of this year when he became the Bishop of the Buddhist Churches of America.

WHAT IS HOLINESS IN SIMPLE EXPLANATION. Holiness is the nature and character of God manifested to us through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Holiness. Holiness, or Sanctification is the process of God's grace sanctifying (making holy) a person who was justified and regenerated (1 Cor. 6:11; Titus 3:5). Holiness or Sanctification is God's perfect will for all Christians (Rom.12:1-2; 1Thes.4:1-7). God ordained His people to bear fruit, and this includes maturity through sanctification. Holiness is BOTH consecration to God and separation from the world and all sins,it is always a command by God to man (Titus 2:11-12; 1 Peter 1:15-16; Matthew 5:48; 2Cor.5:17). Without Holiness, no man shall see the Lord (Mat.5:8; Heb.12:14; Rev. 22:10-12). God requires Holiness better than spiritual gifts, and is actually the basis of God's moving in the life of a person or church (Joshua 3:5; Matthew 7:21-23). Holiness is both partaking of God's divine nature through the Holy Ghost (2 Peter 1:4), and the actual decision of man to submit to God's control (Rom.12:1). Therefore, a Christian is expected to leave sin and worldliness in pursuit of God's holiness. Separation from sin, wickedness, and worldliness is both a principle of Holiness and a command to obey (2 Cor.6:14-18; James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-16). If a Christian is truly living in the principles of the Bible concerning Holiness, then he will practically obey the standards of God's Word that pertains to holy, righteous, and godly living which includes moral standards, standards of godly clothing and adornment, and prohibition of worldly lifestyles and fashion. Holiness affects all areas and aspects of our lives, including our thoughts, words, actions, dress, lifestyles, relationships, and our outlook in life. In short, Holiness is both inward transformation toward Christ-like character and outward transformation that is different from the ways of the world and unbelievers. That's Holiness.

A Buddhist Community in the Japanese Jodo Shinshu Pure Land Tradition. Originally located at 131 East Canon Perdido Street, the Buddhist Church of Santa Barbara was founded in 1922 by Japanese immigrants to Santa Barbara.

They had the wish that the teachings of the Buddha should thrive in this country, so that the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha would continue to illuminate the lives of future generations. As the membership grew, the current building at 1015 East Montecito Street was constructed and dedicated for Buddhist practice and mindfulness in 1966. The Buddhist Church of Santa Barbara belongs to the Buddhist Churches of America and the Jodo Shinshu school of Buddhism. With roots in the Pure Land Buddhist tradition, we share a common spiritual heritage with many Buddhist communities active today in Japan, China, Korea, and Vietnam, as well as here in the United States. We look to the eminent 12th century Japanese Buddhist priest Shinran as the founder of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism. He taught that by listening to the words of the Buddha with an open heart, our path is illuminated by the wisdom and compassion of awakening.
