On November 12, Nepal Renrakusho in Kathmandu welcomed the Shinbashira, his wife Harue, and Successor Designate Daisuke Nakayama for their 50th anniversary service. Since its founding in 1966, Nepal Renrakusho has promoted Japanese language instruction and social welfare activities.
The Shinbashira then gave a celebratory address on the mindset of the Joyous Life and moving forward in a unity of mind and cheerful spiritedness. This was followed by a performance of the service, which was sung by some 250 followers.
Renrakusho Head Yoshiharu Kamimura then expressed his gratitude and asked for more salvation efforts from the congregation.
