Annex renovation Update-Design updates

Posted by:

Todd Tsudama

It has come to my attention that I have not done a good job of communicating what Phase I or the Annex Renovation is. The Phase I of the campus renovation includes the following:

  1. Seismic and safety updates-This is the first and foremost reason we are renovating the annex first. With the concrete wall construction, if there were a major earthquake AND if there was an event or service happening in the Annex, there’s a potential of injury. This does ...

Go Warriors and Sharks …

Todd Tsudama

May is one of my favorite times of the year. The weather is getting nicer (although we’ve been really lucky this year), the NBA and NHL Playoffs are in full swing and the Warriors and Sharks are playing well. As you can tell from my recent Dharma letters, I’m a big sports fan. I love watching sports and especially the playoffs. It’s no longer about the individual but the team. In fact, one night my boys and I were ...

Happy in Nembutsu

G Sakamoto

There is much in our lives to be happy about. The experience may not be a giddy happy, but a feeling of well being and joy. A feeling of joy that acknowledges difficulties. We may not be able to recognize happiness at times, but happiness is always there. Even in the most difficult of times happiness is there. When we lose something important happiness is there. When someone we care for deeply dies happiness is there. In all our ...

Left Turns

G Sakamoto

Do you swerve right just as you make a left turn? Swerving right prevents our rear left tire from ending up on the median strip. Avoids damaging the rim of the wheel and possible damage to the tire. It also avoids getting scolded and/or laughed at. However, when we swerve right we can endanger the driver in the lane to the right of us. It is certainly not our intent but entering the lane to our right can have ...

March Madness…Welcome to the big Dance

Posted by:

With the NCAA Basketball tournament winding down, we’re finally down to the Final Four teams. It’s been a crazy run and I hope a few of your teams are still in it. This year, I picked Michigan to win it all and so far so good. As I was watching all the games, the announcers and coaches had a common message, ”Play hard today, like there’s no tomorrow!!” It made me think of Sensei Sakamoto’s Dharma message at a recent ...

Annex Renovation Project Update = Phase I

Posted by:

Does anyone know why I put “Phase I” at the end of the title? It’s because the Annex renovation is just the first phase of our multiyear campus renovation plan. Phase II will include the Education bldg. reconstruction but that’s a few year away. Now back to the present….General Contractor: the Board will vote on a proposal to select Vance Brown Inc as our GC. They are the same GC that Mt View Buddhist church used and was very satisfied ...
