Karamatsu Temple


As this is the obon season, it is a time when our ancestors visit us and and a time when we celebrate their lives as well as ours.  I am reminiscing my Grandma Bessie Karamatsu's funeral at Jodo Mission Hawaii in April 2006.  I remember Bishop Nakamura's statement to my grandma in front of the audience, “You don't have to rush to the pure land.  Take your time.  But when you do get there, Maurice Karamatsu is waiting for you in a temple he built out of Karamatsu trees.”
