“HANGAN - HALF
OPEN EYES Rev. Sensho Inouye
When we look up Buddha’s statue or Buddha’s image closely, we find Buddha’s eyes are not
wide open. Buddha’s eyes are not closed, but they are open half way. We call them “Hangan”
-Half open eyes.
Half open eyes look not only outside but also inside. Half open eyes see not only front but they
see back also. Half open eyes see not only the thing that exists but they see the things which make
it exist by supporting it from behind.
A Buddhist priest was taking a walk a walk with his disciple in his temple yard. Then a blast
of wind scattered dead leaves all on the temple yard. The Buddhist priest while he was walking
picked dead leaves one by one and put them into he robe’s sleeve-pocket.
Watching what his teacher was doing, the dipciple said, “Master, please stop doing it. I will
sweep them later.” Then the Buddhist priest cried out loudly, “You can not make the garden clean
by sweeping later. If you pick one dead leaf, you could make the garden clean that much.”
Yes, if you pick one dead leaf, you could make the garden clean that much.
We have a tendency to look forward expecting something to happen in the future. But when we
change our attitude and turn our eyes to look back or inside, we will find out that we are blessed
with countless things. We will become grateful for the blessings we have been given.
If we can not pick up the things that are given upon us, we can not produce anything.
Buddhism teachies us that we should clearly see what is making ourselves exist every
moment.

THOUGHTS FROM THE SANGHA
Kay Kobashi in
Washington DC
Senator Daniel Inouye
& Robert Yano
Robert Yano &
Kay Kobashi
Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony in Washington D.C.
In 2010, Congress passed a bill to award veterans of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, 100th Infantry
Battalion, and Military Intelligence Service the Congressional Gold Medal in recognition of their heroic actions
and service in World War II. This bill was signed by President Obama in October 2010 and plans began for
the presentation of the medal. I was fortunate have had the opportunity to attend the activities in Washington
D.C. with my family and grandpa who was one of approximately 350 Nisei veterans recognized October 31st to
November 2nd, 2011.
The first event was the awarding of Bronze Star to veterans who, by their past actions that went above and
beyond their call of duty, were recommended and selected for the medal. These medals were presented to the
honored veterans by General Odierno, the Army Chief of Staff. Each Bronze Star was engraved with the recipient’s
name. Following the ceremony, the veterans went to the National World War II Memorial.
The ceremony for the presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal took place on November 2nd. Veterans,
accompanied by a family member, were bused to the U.S. Capitol Hill and seated in Emancipation Hall. Leaders
of Congress addressed the honorees, expressing words of appreciation and commendation for the sacrifices and
loyalty of the WWII veterans. Each veteran was given a bronze replica of the Gold medal. That evening,
Congress hosted a gala dinner in honor of the 442nd, 100th, and MIS. Friends and family attended the dinner and
enjoyed the special program which including touching stories and a speech by Senator Daniel Inouye who had
also served in the war.
The city of Washington D.C. is full of U.S. history, from its famous landmarks to various museums. Being
this was my first time visiting the city, I was impressed with its beautiful parks and open space. Walking paths
surrounded the monuments and memorial sites, making strolling to the different landmarks a wonderful experience.
The sunny days also added to our pleasant touring.
I am grateful to my grandpa and to all of the veterans who served our country through the trying times of
internment of their loved ones and the discrimination present at home. They deserve this long-overdue recognition
and place in American history. Congratulations to all of our Nisei Veterans on this achievement!
In Gassho,
Lesley K. Guerra
Note regarding the Local 442 Event in Fresno
CCDC-JACL has approved in concept a local Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony in Fresno. I hope
you will be able to attend and spread the word. It would be great to honor the veterans locally, especially
those who were not able to attend the ceremony in Washington, D.C. We will be looking for sponsors to
pay for the medal and meal for the veterans. Also, through the U.S. Mint, bronze replica’s of the 442’s CGM
are available for purchase.
I have reserved the Liberty Ballroom, at the Clovis Veterans’ Memorial Building, 808 4th Street,
Clovis, California, for February 19, 2012, noon reception followed by lunch. Pardini’s will be our caterer.
More information to come.

Old Business:
A. Review of Special Meeting - A meeting was held on 10/24
to discuss the shortage of Ministers in Central California. Even
though we currently have Rev. Inouye as our supervising
minister, the Board wants to be pro-active and discusss
possible alternatives before we lose Rev. Inouye’s services.
One possible option would be to contact other churches to
gauge their interest in sharing a minister. This could give our
church a plan to discuss with the Bishop before he makes a
decision on what is done for Central California.
B. Minister’s Assistant Program- During the Special
Meeting, the MAP program was discussed. It was explained
what a certified Minister’s Assistant was allowed to do,

completed.

buddhist women’s association
By Karen Shimizu, BWA Social Chairperson
The holiday season is upon us. This is a busy time
for everyone preparing for the holidays. Don’t forget to
take a moment for some fun and relaxation with family
and friends.
Our yard sale was a great success. Denise and Barb
did an excellent job coordinating the fundraiser. As
usual, people were lined up outside waiting for us to
open the doors. It was our most successful yard sale to
date. It seems that this time we had an extraordinary
amount and variety of items donated. Thank you for
your donations and many thanks to all the ladies and
menfolk who came out to help with the yard sale.
A huge thank you to Group 1 and everyone who
came out for the church cleaning and omigaki. It is
a big undertaking to clean and polish the onaijin and
hondo. We appreciate everyone’s help,
The Eshinni-ko/Kakushinni-ko Hoyo/BWA/Monthly
Memorial Service was held on Nov. 20th. This service
is dedicated to the remembrance to Eshinni, wife of
Shinran Shonin, Kakushinni, daughter of Shinran
Shonin, and all past members of our BWA. We are
grateful for these women’s dedication and contributions
to our church and for furthering the Jodo Shinshu
teachings. Our guest speaker was Rev. Ron Kobata
who is currently the minister of the San Francisco
Buddhist Church. He spoke about the purpose of
life in the Buddhist context which is “awareness” or
“awakening” in ourselves of the truth (reality) of life.
After the service, we had a wonderful luncheon
consisting of a variety of tofu dishes. Our members
found many creative and innovative ways to incorporate
tofu into their dishes. Gail H., Yuki G., Fusa I., and
Miyo O. did an outstanding job organizing the luncheon.
Thanks also to Matsuko, Carol G., Leslie G., and our
social chairs, Char and Julie for their assistance. After
the luncheon, everyone enjoyed playing several games
of bingo. Thank you Calvin D. for being our bingo
caller.
The church is having a Dharma Gathering on Sat.,
Dec.3rd. Our guest speaker will be Gordon Ah-Tye.
He will be talking about “Happiness”. Something
we wish we have more of. Gordon spoke at the Baby
Boomer’s Seminar back in Oct. and gave a very
impressive talk. He will surely put a smile on your face
and have you leaving in a happy mood. In addition,
we are planning to serve breakfast at 8:00 am before
Gordon’s talk. It will be a very inspiring and fun event
to attend.

Helpful Hint by Carol Guerra
If you’d like to try eating the “bitter” kaki when it’s hard,
instead of waiting for it to become soft and eating that way,
or using it for baking, this is what I do. When the kaki
is still firm, but colored, dip it into a bowl of whiskey or
vodka, place it, stem side up in an airtight container...my
mother used to use a crock that she also made sukimono in,
but I use a large lidded tupperware container. Spoon some
of the whiskey or vodka so it sits in the stem area, just so
a little of it sits there. Seal it airtight in a cool area for 3-5
days depending on how hard the fruit was. After 3-4 days,
rinse & try cutting one...if you still taste a little bitterness,
let it set for another day or two. Once it’s ready, refrigerate
it and it’ll stay hard for a while. It’s really delicious and my
favorite way of eating the “bitter” Kaki! This was something my grandmother, mother, and I have done. Try it!
My favorite is to use whiskey...at first it smells, but it
dissipates and leaves no alcohol flavor.
MONTHLY MEMORIAL SERVICE
The December Shotsuki Service will be in conjunction with the
Bodhi Day Service on Sunday, December 11, 2011.
Families, as well as all members and friends are encouraged to attend.
