Hokke Senbo

The Hokke Senbo service is a Buddhist reflection service, also known as Buddhist repentence. This practice is discussed in the Threefold Lotus Sutra. The Dharma Practice of Universal Sage Bodhisattva is the third sutra in the threefold.  In this Sutra, the Buddha discusses the practices of Universal Sage (Fugen Bodhisattva) which includes the practice of Sange [repentence or reflection]. During the service we reflect on our past actions and deeds and think about the suffering we have created. Through this action we grow as Bodhisattvas and learn from our past deeds.

We have added this service to our regular schedule on a monthly basis. This service may take up to 2 or 3 hours to complete as a large portion of the Lotus Sutra is chanted in English during the service. Nearly all of the service is done in English. It does include singing praise with prostrations and circumabulation.  If you have not done this service before it may be a little difficult at first.  Everyone is always welcome to join us--no prior experience necessary.

We use several ways to get the word out for our Sangha--because of this the "Who's coming?" RSVP may not reflect the actual number of people who attend our services. For further information, visit www.nichiren-shu.org/Houston

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
