Rev. Sonam Bhutia

Buddhist Study Center’s 2017 Summer Session:

Jodo Shinshu in the Land of Shakyamuni

with Rev. Sonam Wangdi Bhutia
Head Priest – Kathmandu Hongwanji, Nepal
 

Raised from the age of three to be a monk in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and advancing to the highest ranks, Rev. Sonam, at age 28, encounters Jodo Shinshu, a Japanese Pure Land tradition.

His path eventually leads to the founding of Nepal’s first Hongwanji temple and a thriving new Buddhist community in Kathmandu. Hear his dramatic personal journey and how the story of the Buddha is resonating today with young adults in the birthplace of Shakyamuni.
