Arigato Gozaimasu            1   So am I. It’s exciting to feel something fresh and tense in relation just like a newly wedded
                                 couple. And imagine a few years later. I would take you for granted; so would you.
Rev’’s Japanese article     2

Dharma School             4, 5   Nembutsu alone is perfect enough in life? Why does it open a deep world to us?

Sangha Offerings            6       When I hear questions like these, I am quite happy; so is Shinran Shonin. We

               2011 Cherry Blossom Festival Wish List
The Cherry Blossom Committee is again asking for your in-kind donations in preparation for the festival on June 25 &
25, 2011. In addition to your time, these donations help offset the ever increasing costs associated with this event. Every
little bit helps in our efforts to raise funds to operate the Temple. There is a table in the auditorium for your donations.
We also welcome cash donations, if you would prefer us to make purchases on your behalf for specific items. For cash
donations, please submit these to the Temple office in an envelope marked “Cherry Blossom Donation” and let us know
which items you’d like us to purchase.

Dear Tri-State/Denver Buddhist Temples,

On behalf of Denver Taiko, Mirai Daiko and Taiko with Toni, we would like to express our deepest gratitude
for your help in making our benefit concert, “Heartbeat for Japan” a huge success.

With only a week to plan, the event would not have been nearly as successful without the resources, publicity,
and donations your organization helped provide.

The concert raised over $21,000 and all of the money will be deposited into the Northern Japan Earthquake
Relief Fund.

Again, thank you so much for your efforts in making the concert a highly successful event. Kokoryori kansha
itashimasu (We appreciate your support from our hearts).
