Rev. Marvin Harada of Orange County Buddhist Church, and supervising Minister of Vista Buddhist Temple

We seek to find what Buddhism can do for us in our life — will it help to ease our stress or make us happier? We all start with these questions, which reflect the practical level of Buddhism. This seminar will address these questions and then introduce the truth level of Buddhism.

What is a Tri-Temple Seminar? The Southern District of the Buddhist Churches of America provides modest financial support for one seminar each year that rotates among three Temples: Orange County, Vista, and Dan Diego. These are the three southernmost Temples in the Southern District, which includes southern California and Arizona.

About Our Speaker. Reverend Marvin Harada is the head minister at the Orange County Buddhist Church, co-director of the Center for Buddhist Education in Berkeley, and author of Discovering Buddhism in Everyday Life, a compilation of essays written over his first 25 years as a Shin Buddhist minister.  He holds degrees from the University of Oregon, the Institute of Buddhist Studies in Berkeley, and Ryukoku University in Kyoto, Japan. An engaging and popular speaker, he excels at making the Buddhist teachings relevant to our everyday life.
