Our Guiding Light

๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•Rev. Zenko Okimura๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ™


On his 49 Days since March 7th,
Continues on his Life Journey to the ultimate peace and tranquility.
Although we will not be able to see him physically his enormous compassion,
love and care will live within us and so many people that he cared dearly for.
Compassion and love are beyond time and space, and so is our Okimura SHIHAN.
How can love leave you, how can compassion leave you, now you are hosted by our heart.
Now you have chosen this new home to guide us from within because you are the one
compassionate soul who never leaves his love ones. Now we have homed him in our heart
to be even closer than before and guide us from within us and his essence and blessings
will always fill our life.
