Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai held the 6th Photo Contest of A Wise Saying A Day Calendar last year under the auspices of the judges, Mr. Kenji Ishiguro, Mr. Yasushi Sugimata, Mr. Masanori Marubayashi, and Ms. Michiko Kaneko. The 32 winning photos will be exhibited with sayings from Buddhist sutras or the founders of various Japanese Buddhist denominations.
We will use these photos in 2021 calendar and in an exhibition to honor the winners and to create an opportunity for people to learn about the spirit of Buddhism.
Speak not cruel words.
Happiness never diminishes by being shared.
Neither I nor my possessions exist.
On July 31, 2020, at 10:00 AM and at 14:00 PM, the ceremony will be held at the exhibition space. Mr. Mohri Suzuki, a calligrapher who wrote the sayings for the calendar, will conduct a calligraphy exhibition and will inscribe your favorite phrases as well.
