Pictures from the Venice Hongwanji Buddhist Temple ground breaking ceremony. The Kanji on the marker reads, “May the Buddha Dharma prosper, and may this temple flourish.”

If anyone knows the date (either exact or approximate), any of the names of the individuals in the pictures, or anything else about the ceremony, please post a comment below.


These appear to be pictures of the groundbreaking for the Venice Hongwanji Buddhist Temple. If anyone knows anything about these pictures, can you please provide the information in a comment? Like date, either approximate or exact (I’m thinking sometime in the late 1950s?), and a translation of the marker. And if you know the name of someone in a picture, please post it in the comment for that picture. Thanks!
