As the National Buddhism Examiner for Examiner.com, I write articles about Buddhism and Buddhist Teachings. I try to include a variety of topics, and sometimes I fall behind on publishing new articles, but I have been working on improving my consistency.
Today marks the 8th day of the 12th month, and although I'm referring to the Gregorian calendar, this day is now commonly celebrated as Bodhi Day among Buddhist sects in Japan and other regions. I am a member of Soto-shu Buddhism, which is Zen Buddhism from Japan, and specifically I am part of the Soto Mission of Hawaii.
Anyway, Happy Bodhi Day! I will miss the services in my temple this weekend because I have lived on the mainland for the past 2 years, but I will eventually return. In the meantime, I continue learning and I continue trying.... and perhaps one day I will attain Enlightenment too (^^)v
Here is a link to my Examiner article for Bodhi Day 2011 At the bottom of that article I have links to some of my other National Buddhism Examiner articles that relate to Bodhi Day, for those who may be interested.
