Why do we live?  

What is the purpose of human life? 

How can we find peace of mind when life is so often full of suffering? 

Who am I? What is my true self? 

Can we obtain true and everlasting happiness exist in this lifetime? 

What happens to us in the afterlife?

If you've ever wondered about these spiritual questions seriously or are curious about these issues, then we would like to invite you to join us in exploring the teachings of Pure Land Buddhism together.   

Shakyamuni Buddha clarified there are 2 types of happiness in this world, "Relative happiness" and "Absolute happiness". We often say "I live for my family, for my job, to establish high fame and status, to enjoy my hobbies, to bring peace to the world, etc.". These outer resource of happiness are called "Relative Happiness". Shakyamuni Buddha taught how to obtain "Absolute Happiness" which is the true peace of mind and full satisfaction that never fades. He recommended us to attain "Absolute happiness" as soon as possible while we are alive.

Topics include:

● Enlightenment

● The mechanism of our fate is clarified in Buddhism

● Buddhism in essence is "Practice various good and refrain from evil."

● Planting Seeds of Happiness

● Definition of Compassion: The desire to eliminate people's suffering and granting them joy. 

● Is it possible to eliminate attachment?

● What is the root cause of suffering?

● The four noble truths

● Relative happiness and absolute happiness: The difference between the two kinds of happiness

● Human form is difficult to obtain: Does the preciousness of life differ according to the race, gender, age, or status?

● Amida Buddha's Vow: There is a great ship that carries us across the sea of suffering cheerfully and brightly.

● Heizei Goujou: While we are still alive, our greatest purpose of life will be fulfilled.
