Dear Dharma Friends,
Wishing everyone to have Very Happy New Year. Another year just went like that, when we look back on year 2013. It was a wonderful year for IBS with Prison Visitation Program. IBS would like to thank all devotees and Dharma friends for supporting Dharma brothers in California State prisons. At the same time we would like to thank to our online volunteers for their contribution of time and talent. The age of Internet allow us to achieve the goals of our Iron Temples' friends as an online team. Hopefully this year will give us more opportunity to kindle the mind light of many more brothers. " There are no bad people in this world, but there are people who make mistake out of ignorance." We pray to all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for their blessing for the peace and harmony in this world. May everyone be contented with what we have. Wishing to have fabulous year for everyone. Amituofo
