Daily Service

Morning (Daily) Service (Sutra Chanting): Slow Chanting

During our Daily Service, we chant portions of the Lotus Sutra and also chant the Odaimoku (Namu Myoho Renge Kyo). This is a version of the normal daily service practiced by Nichiren Shu practitioners at home. The chapters from the Lotus Sutra are read in the traditional way (Chinese Characters with Japanese pronunciation) called Shindoku. Shindoku is a form of faith reading and is a meditation in itself. It is not necessary to understand academically while chanting in Shindoku as it is a form of meditation practice. Service usually lasts about 30 min. - 40 min.

The chanting done during this service is done at a slow pace which makes it a good place for beginners to start.

Refreshments and coffee/tea are available after service.
