On behalf of Rev. Sugao and Ebisu Filmes, the BCA Center for Buddhist Education (CBE) would like to invite you to be part of a historic project to share many of our BCA stories on the big screen. Donations are still being raised to complete the film in time for its February premiere. Please read on for how you can help this unique effort.
“Streams of Light – Shin Buddhism in America” will feature interviews with a number of BCA ministers and community members in a quest to understand the process and transformation of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism from a religion mainly practiced by the Japanese American community to a world religion.
This is a very special project that will remind us of the inspiring Jodo Shinshu pioneers in America, through archival photos, movies and interviews with BCA members who remember that era.
CBE is assisting the project since we believe that we need creative educational tools such as this to share and more fully appreciate our legacy.
