Tenrikyo Oceania Centre Marks Its 20th Anniversary

On July 9, the Shinbashira, his wife, and Successor-Designate Daisuke Nakayama attended the service commemorating the 20th anniversary of Tenrikyo Oceania Centre, located in Brisbane, Australia. The commemorative service attracted some 160 people not only from the three largest cities in Australia—Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney—but also from the New Zealand city of Auckland, which is approximately 2,300 kilometers (1,429 mi.) away. With the Shinbashira’s words etched in their hearts, local followers renewed their pledge to devote themselves to the further expansion of the path in Oceania.
