When: Sat., Feb. 17, 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. 2018
The 71st Northwest Buddhist Convention is meeting in Spokane this weekend, hosted by the Spokane Buddhist Temple for three days of workshops and meetings that will draw 300 or so practicing Buddhists from throughout the Pacific Northwest and Canada to the Lilac City. A major part of the action, though, is an invitation for the public and those curious about Buddhism to take part in an Introduction to Buddhism program led by Rev. Kodo Umezu, bishop of the Buddhist Churches of America, and Rev. Henry Toryo Adams, the keynote speaker at the convention. If you’ve ever been curious what a Buddhist service is like, or wanted to learn about the faith/philosophy, the three-hour introduction could be just the ticket.
