[Lord Shakyamuni Buddha:]
"I know who is practicing the Way and who is not. Therefore 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?'" Lotus Sutra, Ch. 16, "The Lifespan of the Buddha"
The Sangha meets to practice and study Buddhism, with a focus on the Lotus Sutra and in the tradition of the Nichiren Shu. While the focus is the "One Vehicle" of the Lotus Sutra and practices therefor, teachings and practices common to all schools of Buddhism are covered.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
