A word from Reverend Shinseki:
We believe that a free exchange of ideas requires mutual respect and consideration of our differences.
We promote mutual respect, trust, and support to foster bonds that strengthen our community.
We embrace diversity in all its forms and we strive for an inclusive community that fosters an open, enlightened and productive environment.
We see to advance common goals of Buddhism through reasonable and realistic practices, procedures and expectations.
We are a participatory community united by shared commitments, service to society, preservation and advancement of Buddhism, and innovative teaching and learning.
We celebrate the Buddhist heritage, achievements, and diversity of the community and the uniqueness and contributions of our members.
