What is the Buddhist Faith Fellowship?

The Buddhist Faith Fellowship is an open, nurturing, and non-judgmental spiritual community that is dedicated to realizing our human potential by transforming suffering into happiness, well-being, and tranquility of mind. Originally, we were located in Middletown, Connecticut but since the Covid-19 health crisis we have been meeting at various locations in Central Connecticut and online. We are open to the public; and no experience necessary to participate.

Established in 2001, we are one of Connecticut's most established Buddhist organizations. Since then, with the vision and guidance of our founding teacher, Senpai Daishin, the Fellowship has offered a full array of spiritual activities that include bimonthly Practice & Talk and Stoa Buddhist gatherings, weekly 12 Step Buddhist group, end of life programs, and plenty of other opportunities to learn about and practice Buddhism in the contemporary American context.

Visit our main web site for calendar of event and plenty of information on Buddhist philosophy and practice. Take a look at our web site @ http://bffct.org/bff (http://bffct.org/bff/)

Online Practice & Talk Meeting - "Other Power"

Link visible for attendees

Twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Sundays, we offer a unique opportunity to explore the core teachings and practices of Shin Buddhism, as a philosophy of life and deep spiritual practice, with one of Connecticut’s most well-known Buddhist teachers, Rev. Daishin Senpai , M.A. Our Online Shin Practice & Talk meetings are enriching occasions to personally engage the Dharma (Buddhism) in a nurturing, gentle, and systematic way.

This week, we will explore Rev. Taitetsu Unno's classic book, "River of Fire, River of Fire. See the above Meetup title for the name of the chapter or join our Facebook group or sign up for our Newsletter on our web site for chapter to be discussed (you don't need to have read anything to enjoy the meeting).

Our Sunday practice includes traditional chants, and quiet sitting meditation, as well as, an exploration of Shin Buddhism from a modernist point of view, which takes into account American culture, neuroscience, the evolutionary sciences and physics, and openly accepts the wisdom of other Buddhist schools and Western philosophy.

Our gatherings include traditional sacred chants and quiet sitting meditation.
