Which invention came first... Japanese Sukiyaki or Banquet Frozen Dinner Sukiyaki?

Tacoma, it seems, had the very first female Buddhist minister in America. The Tacoma Buddhist Temple has a very interesting history not just in Buddhism, but in the life of Tacoma and beyond.

From the Tacoma Public Library:

"Mrs. Sunya Pratt, leader of the Tacoma Buddhist Center, is ordained as the first female Buddhist Priest in the United States. Born in England, the daughter of a philosopher, she was acquainted with Buddhism as a young teen. She began her active study in 1934 with Rev. Robert Clifton and dropped her given name Gladys to adopt the name of Sunya. On April 23, 1936 she was ordained as a Upasika Bhikuni and given the name Rev. Tei-un. (T Times 4/22/1936 p.1;"

A picture of Ms Pratt can be found using a search at the Tacoma Library's web site.

Thanks, Morgan; I think we'll be there. It will be a good place to celebrate a birthday.
