Great Natural Way is by Rev. Hozen Seki, founder of the New York Buddhist Church and one of the real pioneers of Shin Buddhism in the United States. The book is a treasure trove of Rev. Seki’s Dharma wisdom collected by his students. It is an excellent guide to living the Buddhist life in a contemporary setting.

This course was created by recorded video from a book discussion led by Gary Shobo Jaskula, Tokudo Minister’s Assistant. Older members already know how inspirational Rev. Seki’s teachings were, and newer ones are in for a delightful surprise.
