Ekoji means “The Temple of the Gift of Light.” and its temple is Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-Ha in Kyoto, Japan. This denomination is commonly known as Shin Buddhism. A Japanese monk named Shinran established this form of Buddhism in the 12th century. - This group is for those interested in learning more of and participating in Pure Land Buddhism (Shin).
