SDDSTL Hongwanji Place- Welcome!!!

Winter Update- February 2018

A timely update as we are having snow and freezing rain here today (not LA of course).  A new Dharma Message has been posted.

We will be travelling to the BCA National Council Meeting in Sacramento February 22-24 (no sales on Sunday).  We will have many of our signature items (let us know if you would like something specific so we make sure to bring it).  Also, look for our new items- an LED light up personal cooling fan, Rev. Sasaki's memoir, and a t-shirt to commemorate the Year of the Dog. 



We have a new phone number (424) 258-5775.  This will hopefully allow us to continue to provide our customers with prompt service.  You can always send us an e-mail too!


Very Special New Book!

Out of the Mud Grows the Wisteria (by Rev. LaVerne Sasaki)

Rev. Sasaki, a long-time BCA minister, shares his life and experiences in this collection of insightful and often humorous stories, from his childhood , to Tule Lake internment, ministerial training, world travels, and his experiences as a minister.  Includes many of his personal photos as well.
