ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS RECOGNITION a member may receive from our temple is the Dana Award which will be presented to one of our members at the Annual General Membership (Sokai) meeting and New Year’s Party (Shinnenkai), which will be held at the temple on Saturday, January 18, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The award is named after the late Tadaichi Fukunaga who practiced the Buddhist teachings of Dana, served as an officer and director of our temple, and as an advisor to the Honpa Hongwanji of Hawaii.

To qualify for this award, a member must be a Kyodan member for a minimum of 35 years, an active member of affiliate organizations, participates in community organizations, regularly attends Sunday and major services, practices the Buddhist teaching of Dana, helps propagate the Buddhist teachings, listens to the Dharma, and contributes to his/her temple, family and community.
