        If they supplied that site either:

All of the people came as a result excited to see them and now have extremely been having fun with those things.

    Is there a “Pure Land” or Shin Buddhist group in Pittsburgh.

    • Sumitta says:

      There may be a Pure Land group in the area. Not EVERY group participates with the Buddhist Society of Pittsburgh.
