円教寺 Enkyoji Buddhist Network World Wide

円教寺 Enkyoji Buddhist Network is the World Wide propagation portal of the Shinshibōen 親師法縁 Lineage of Nichiren Shu as it runs through 長栄山円教寺 Choeizan Enkyoji Temple of Seattle to our Honbu Temple, 長妙山 圓教寺 Chomyozan Enkyoji Buddhist Temple of Saga, Kyushu Japan. We follow the teachings of the Eternal Shakyamuni Buddha as set forth in the Lotus Sutra and in the teachings of our founder Nichiren Shonin. Our main practice is chanting the Odaimoku (Great Title) of the Lotus Sutra:

Namu Myoho Renge Kyo

 

The Odaimoku expresses the essence of the teachings of the Lotus Sutra and by chanting it we establish a way of life consonant with the eternal truths preached by the BuddhaWithout PRACTICE there is no Buddhism! We endeavor to put our effort and faith into regular practice to better realize and share the benefits of the Dharma through its application in our daily lives. Our purpose is to nurture the Buddha seeds in all sentient beings. It is the aspiration of  円教寺 Enkyoji Buddhist Network to continue Nichiren Shonin's Mission of spreading Buddhism throughout the most challenging socio-economic areas of the inner-cities and rural areas of the World. It is our intention to make Nichiren Shu Buddhism more accessible to a broader socio-economic and racial demographic Worldwide.

The Shinshibōen 親師法縁 Lineage of Abbot Kanjin Cederman Shonin and 長栄山円教寺 Choeizan Enkyoji Temple of Seattle has a long and important history. The Lineage was transmitted by Kanto Tsukamoto Shonin from 長妙山 圓教寺 Chomyozan Enkyoji Temple in Saga, Kyushu, Southern Japan. This is where Tsukamoto Shonin, Cederman Shonin’s teacher, and his family have continued this wonderful lineage of faith and practice for generations.

圓教寺 Enkyoji was originally a Shingon Shu temple. In the 15th century, Nichijo Shonin, who was the Head Priest of the Temple, lost a debate with the famous Nichiren Shu priest Kuonjoin Nisshin Shonin during his stay in Hizen prefecture, which was between modern Saga and Nagasaki prefectures or possibly a direct disciple of his. Following his loss, Nichijo Shonin converted the Temple to Nichiren Shu. {ESP} Red Budista 円教寺 Enkyoji
