The American Buddhist Study Center will pay tribute to those individuals who aided in bringing Buddhist values and Japanese culture to our everyday lives.
This month, we will introduce George Tetsuo Aratani, a Japanese American philanthropist and founder of Mikasa Chinaware and Kenwoods Electronics. He became a prominent figure who has helped and build Japanese & Japanese American communities across United States.
American Buddhist Study Center was originally founded in 1951 by the late Reverend Hozen Seki. At that time the Study Center’s name was The American Buddhist Academy. Back then Reverend Seki’s wanted to enlighten the spirit and the minds of Americans to the great compassion, wisdom, and teachings of Amida Buddha.
