Back in the 1990's, Kempon Hokke members were very fortunate...Rev. Tetsujo Kubota, the priest assigned to the United States, came to NY for a visit. It was an incredible few days. Kubota-sensei honored me by performing Gongyo in my home. It was an amazing experience...his spirit and devotion to the Dharma was unquenchable. I will never forget those few days with a very amazing man!
