What we're about

Are you searching for meaning in your life?

Have you ever felt happiness in your life...

...never lasts?

This Buddhist group has a great positive, multi-cultural atmosphere that helps people search for the answer to life's biggest questions. Through the teachings of Buddha and historical Pure Land Buddhist teachers we understand better the direction our life needs to take in order to find the purpose of life.

We offer video lectures and have meetings to discuss how to obtain an absolute form of happiness.

I hope you'll stop by and attend a meeting when you have a chance!

Below, you'll find some more information about what Buddhism is all about as well as our contact info and location.

In Buddhism, we learn that there are two kinds of joy.

Relative Happiness

All the happiness we know is called Relative Happiness. Money, status, fame, wealth, family, friends, and our loved ones are all included in this category. Politics, economics, medicine, and the arts also try to provide us with Relative happiness.

We seek for this type of happiness day in, day out hoping we can attain true satisfaction from it.

Absolute Happiness

We are all seeking for a happiness which will truly last. This kind of happiness is called Absolute Happiness. The purpose of life is to attain it as quickly as possible while still alive.

Let's Learn about Buddhism & How to Practice by Watching Movies Followed by Q&A!

Hope this message finds you as well as you could be under the current circumstances. How about watching a movie of Buddhism for about 30 minutes, hearing explanations of it for 15 minutes, and another 15 minutes to ask questions? It's a great way to end our week on Friday! Wouldn't you say so? This time's movie is called Why We Live & the Fire in Yoshizaki. It'll focus on the last segment of the movie. Plot Summary: Ryōken is a young man who lamented his misfortune and despised temples and monks. He had placed all his hope on his unborn child, but an unfortunate incident took everything away from him. In his time of despair and suffering in the dark, Ryōken came across the preachings of the holy priest Rennyo. They tell the answer to "why we live," as revealed by the monk Shinran. Finding new meaning, Ryōken becomes Rennyo's apprentice. Angry at the increase of followers at Honnōdera, the other Buddhist sects chase Rennyo and Ryōken out of Kyoto. Seeking a new place of worship, the two arrive in Yoshizaki (Fukui) in the Hokuriku region. Join us through Zoom and let's meditate on what happiness is and is not. If you can support our cause, please offer your donations on PayPal or Venmo to Bita Enayati at [masked] We really appreciate your support and encouragement in continuing to bring quality teachings to you, day in, day out.
