Publication of ‘Won Buddhism in the Americas’ – A Quarterly Newsletter
The first newsletter for North and South America is being published under the name “Won Buddhism in the Americas”.
The 2017 Won Buddhist ministers’ joint summer retreat identified the need to publish a newsletter in the Americas, and since then, the Promotion Committee for Won Buddhist Edification in the Americas has overseen this project.
And now, our first issue has been published. Won Buddhism in the Americas will be issued quarterly in both Korean and English, and will cover news of temples and institutions in North American and South America. Many Kyomus (Won Buddhist ministers) and Kyodos (Won Buddhist lay members) will participate in its production.
We hope this newsletter will serve as a center for facilitating communication for those practicing Won Buddhism in the Americas, and to unite their minds, empowering them with shared wisdom. (Editing Team _ Winter, 2018)
