HDMA Online Dharma Messages

The Hawaii District Ministers Association (consisting of 13 Hongwanji temples on the Big Island) has teamed up to bring you weekly Online Dharma Messages! These prerecorded messages will be posted every Sunday at 9am through the end of June on Honpa Hongwanji Hilo Betsuin's and Puna Hongwanji's Facebook & YouTube accounts.
