What we're about

With the practice of chanting the "Odaimoku" ('Namu Myoho Renge Kyo') and a firm conviction that all beings are able to reveal their true and essential natures as Buddhas, sharing in the wisdom of the Buddha with a heart of joy, compassion and equality. We offer a form of Buddhist practice based on the Lotus Sutra and the teachings of the 12th century monk Nichiren Shonin. We are the orthodox school practicing Mahayana Buddhism based on the Lotus Sutra. 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.
