At September 13, "OTERAKUGO NO SUSUME", an event to like Buddhism through rakugo was held at the Tsukiji Hongwanji Ginza Salon. Almost 20 people came the event. Thank you for coming.
First, Mr. SANYUTEI Haruba performed a rakugo "Hanaikada" ("Hanaikada" is a Sumo wrestler's name). At one scene of "Hanaikada", 2 Sumo wrestlers recite Nembutsu (calling Amitayus Buddha's name).
Next, I talked about Nembutsu. When you do not work well, you leave it to somebody's hands. After you leave it to somebody's hands, you should do reward their works. This is the reason why you recite Nembutsu.
Amitayus Buddha saves all beings. Reciting Nembutsu is expressing your gratitude to Amitayus Buddha. It is rewarding Amitayus Buddha. So, It is important to reciting Nembutsu.
