Information of "Tidal wave damage emergency support headquarters in Sumatra offing earthquake and HBS Sri Lanka" installation

Arigatougozaimasu (This mean is "Thank you very much").
We will notify here the Sri Lankan tsunami damage. I sincerely say an expression of sympathy to the victim and family of the Sumatran offing earthquake and the tsunami of Indonesia generated on December 26.
Until today, HBS-Network is reporting directly with the faithful in local HBS Sri Lanka through Rev. Fukuoka of Kofuji Tenple in the Kobe propagation district which propagates in Sri Lanka.
It is done with the fax and E-mail every day, and we are promoting an accurate information gathering and concrete support.
Myoshinji Temple where the headquarters of HBS-Network exists has already set up "Tsunami damage emergency support room in HBS Sri Lanka".
We immediately do concrete support with Rev. Fukuoka for the faithful in HBS Sri Lanka, and family, and a lot of victims.
The promotion of contribution money started from the headquarters of HBS aiming at all over the world at beginning of a year.
Rev. Fukuoka left the Kansai airport for Sri Lanka in the early morning this January 10.
Sri Lanka which is the stricken area is serious confusion, and people are anxious about the secondary disaster.
Rev. Fukuoka was postponing the making passage schedule at the end of the year for the restriction of entering to Sri Lanka.
However, he knew the situation of Sri Lanka , and making passage was carried out.
Rev. Fukuoka is a victim of the Hanshin Awaji great earthquake, and importance and the difficulty of support are felt strongly. I hear, it was "Do not cause the gap in the request from support from Japan and the locale. The support activity piles up the conversation with a local leader immediately and adequately so that the right place and good intentions may spread evenly".
As for human support and the goods support, the activities other than a government and a public organization are difficult though it is repeated.
First of all, only possible "Capital and fortune support" wants to request cooperation as the first support.
We wish cooperation to the largest-ever worst disaster by all means.
Especially, we are believing in True Buddhism's HBS. Therefore, support on the belief side of us is the most important. Then, the prayer is published in here.

"HBS Sri Lanka and tsunami damage contribution money"

Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi
Shin-Yokohama branch: Branch code 215
Account number: 0272810
Account name: HBS NETWORK

It is important that good intentions everywhere more gather even if it is a little.
It will become big mental support everywhere in the stricken area.

"We pray for reconstruction and rehabilitation of Sri Lanka as soon as possible."
"We pray for international support."
"We pray for the safety of Fukuoka Odoshi (head priest) & his support team."
"We pray for the benefits granted through Namumyohorengekyo for Sumatra earthquake victims and their families."

I will ask all over the world and nationwide all of you to cooperate.
Thank you very much.
