“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” ~ Nelson Mandela

Remembering Rev. Gyosei Handa 13th death anniversary ceremony

Sunday 18th August, 10am in the Temple

Rev Handa was a Buddhist Monk, the abbot of Milton Keynes Peace Pagoda and Temple from 1980 until his sudden death in 2007. He was a follower of Fujii Guruji (1885 - 1985), a Japanese monk who established the basic practice of chanting a prayer for peace accompanied by a drum, bowing in respect to whoever he met, and walking to bring the prayer where it is most needed. After the nuclear bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Fujii started the construction of Peace Pagoda’s as a way to raise a spiritual basis for people to unite and turn around the threat to all life.

The Peace Pagoda in Milton Keynes is the first in the west, and Rev. Handa was a driving force in its construction and associated work. He died in August 2007 in an accident during maintenance work around the Pagoda, just weeks after joining in an anti-nuclear walk and leading the annual Hiroshima Day lantern floating on the lake.

Please join us for prayers and remembrance. All welcome
