In the Lotus Sutra, the Buddha says: <br> "[I] expound various teachings to all living beings according to capacities.  I am always thinking: 'How shall I cause all living beings to enter into the unsurpassed Way and quickly become Buddhas?'" <br> <br>. Our group meets to practice and study Buddhism, with a focus on the Lotus Sutra and in the tradition of the Nichiren Shu school of Buddhism. Teachings and practices common to all schools of Buddhism are covered. Buddhist practices include meditation as well as vocal practices such as chanting the title of the Lotus Sutra and reciting passages from the Lotus Sutra.
