We are the Nichiren Buddhist Sangha of Greater New England, a traditional Japanese temple located in Haverhill, MA.
We offer a form of Buddhist practice based on the Lotus Sutra and the teachings of the 12th century monk Nichiren Shonin. While there are nearly 40 Nichiren based schools, we are the orthodox school practicing Mahayana Buddhism based on the Lotus Sutra. We have rich traditions and rituals and offer services in both shindoku (faith language) as well as English.
We also offer meditation, study of the Lotus Sutra, study of Nichiren Shonin's writings and sutra chanting practices. We are known as the noisy Buddhists because of our intense, percussive manner of chanting. All are welcome, no experience necessary--come join our weekly services. 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 attending.
