“The teachings have their own special energy and from ancient times, the place, time, and situation in which these teachings were passed from teacher to student and was considered very important and sacred. Today, we think that it is only information which we can get from our teacher or from the internet or a video and such the teachings have lost their significance with most people today. With this common lack of respect, its energy is also weakened considerably …this is a shame.”
- Rev. Kensho Furuya

"As we enter the dojo and practice mat each day, we should empty our minds and become the open vessel to receive and be ready for anything and everything, just as we wake up in the morning each day, not really knowing what is going to happen to us."
- Rev. Kensho Furuya

One of the goals in Aikido training is to develop an unaffectable mind which is always calm and free flowing. In swordsmanship, this is referred to as having an immovable mind or an non-abiding mind. When a person engages us, if we react to their advances then we are mindless. If we have equanimity then we can be mindful and thus choose the appropriate course of action.

As things become faster, convenient and more disposable, it is easy to become complacent. However, with this complacency comes a lack of discipline. This discipline is of a spiritual nature which compels us to be better people for the sake of being better without any reward. A tea ceremony teacher once wrote, “When society prospers, the spirit becomes impoverished.”

Please join us as we give thanks and remember our teacher, Rev. Kensho Furuya. At 11:00 AM, the service will begin and be officiated by Rev. Kojima from Zenshuji Soto Mission. After the memorial service, we will be visiting Furuya Sensei's grave site at Rose Hills to clean it and offer incense to Sensei and his family who are interned there. For anyone interest, we will be having a no host lunch after the grave site visit. Everyone is welcome to come. Please join us if you can. This event is free and open to the public.
