Poem in Celebration of the Birth of Shakyamuni Buddha

In deep gratitude for the Dharma, heavenly truth is opened
After the Birthday Ceremony, a Jukai ceremony was held for Peter from Hungary, who received the name Sokyu Koji, meaning "Resting in Religion" and for Judith from the US, who received the name Junsei Daishi, meaning "Clear Purity".
