Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai held the 9th 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 2024 calendar and in an exhibition to honor the winners and to create an opportunity for people to learn about the spirit of Buddhism.

Diligence - Continuous Effort –
Do not resent the differences between you and someone else.
Overconfidence is the greatest enemy.
Keep your heart filled with gratitude and compassion.
We tend to see only the shortcomings of others.
Let us cross over the ocean of delusion.
Eradicate the self-conceited mind.
Do not envy what other people have.
Japanese Calligrapher: Mohri Suzuki
