What we're about

This is a group for anyone who is interested in learning about Buddhism, Buddhist concepts such as Karma, and practicing Buddhism.

The practice of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism can bring about powerful benefits and positive changes in the lives of those who take it up. Our meetings are friendly and all are welcome to learn about this Buddhism and experience the benefits of practice.

Come to learn about Buddhist concepts such as Karma, Ichinen Sanzen, etc; how to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and properly use Juzu Beads (Buddhist prayer beads).

The purpose of this Buddhism is to uncover the Buddha nature that exists deep within our lives and to develop a powerful life force to overcome any difficulties or problems we have and to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

It is also taught that the spread of this practice is the foundation on which we can establish a purified and peaceful world where we can all enjoy happy lives together.

Nichiren Shoshu is the name of the denomination which follows the orthodox teachings of true Buddhism as taught by Nichiren Daishonin, which have been passed down by each successive High Priest for over 700 years. The Head Temple, Taisekiji, in Japan, is the residence of the current High Priest and stands in a beautiful location at the foot of Mt. Fuji.

There are Nichiren Shoshu temples and centers worldwide which actively propagate the teachings of Nichiren Daishonin. The term Hokkeko has been given to the lay organisation - us Buddhist practitioners.

We are part of Myoshoji Temple, Madrid, and our Chief Priest Reverend Arima visits us regularly from there.

This London group organises at least three meetings every month. These are usually on Sundays but there are some mid-week meetings too.
