A Buddhist Life

What is Shinnyo-en  |  A Buddhist Life  |  The Nirvana Sutra  |  Sesshin Training  |  The Founder and Present Head of Shinnyo-en  |  Social Awareness
The Buddha taught that wisdom arises naturally through experience and practice. He encouraged his followers to act with compassion and concern for the welfare of others.

In order to cultivate these qualities, at Shinnyo-en traditional observances and ceremonies are held at temples in addition to a form of meditative training called Sesshin (“touching the essence”). Also, a supportive structure is in place through which to mentor people. This facilitates individualized guidance and the linking of the teachings to each person’s unique life circumstances.
