Steve Nakano, George’s son, said:  My dad was an astro-physicist who studied the stars while he worked for Lockheed Missiles and Space.  He was also a Jodo Shinshu Buddhist and he told his friends and family that Buddhism will not conflict with science.  “Karmic cause and effect are the basis of Buddhist cosmology as it is with science.”
