What we're about
Discover Nichiren Shu Buddhism--a form of Buddhist practice based on the Lotus Sutra and the teachings of 13th century monk Nichiren Shonin. Ours is a Mahayana Buddhist school with an unbroken lineage extending back to the 13th century. We have rich traditions and rituals and offer services in both shindoku (faith language) and English. We also offer study of the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren Shonin's writings, shakyo (sutra copying) and sutra chanting practices. We are known as the noisy Buddhists because of our use of drums and bells when we chant.
This path is the way to calm your mind and open your heart and mind to the reality of all things--as they are. You will discover your true self and how to best show up in the world. This is a proven way to master your mind instead of letting your mind be your master.
EVERYONE is welcome, no experience necessary. Just bring an open mind, a willingness to ask questions and check out what we have to offer.
We use several ways to get the word out for our Sangha, so the "Who's coming?" RSVP may not reflect the actual number of people who attend our services.
