“A monthly English service followed by a Dharma talk is conducted in the Information Center Conference Room. It is open to the public and anyone may attend.
The service consists of sutra chanting, Buddhist gatha singing, and a Dharma talk that is given in English. In May and November, there are special services: Gotan-e (Founder Shinran Shonin’s birthday celebration) and Ho-onko (Annual memorial for Shinran Shonin). A dinner gathering is held after the service on both occasions.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, physical services have been suspended till further notice. Videos of Dharma talks at Tsukiji Hongwanji English Dharma Service can be found on this playlist.” – Tsukiji Hongwanji
