Enkyoji Kanjin Meditation Center

 We are raising money to benefit the moving of Seattle Choeizan Enkyoji Nichiren Buddhist Temple to purchase a space and develop the Enkyoji Kanjin Meditation Center that will house the temple, monastery, dojo, and meditation center.  Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much.

Our Network is at the forefront of the propagation and education of the teaching of Nichiren Shu Buddhism in the United States. We have decided that in the further development of teachings and practices, we will need to relocate to grow our temple. We have had a wonderful 10 years in our current location, but we are looking to expand our space to offer a wide variety of educational opportunities to people towards experiential Buddhist practice.

The new space will allow us to implement new programs offered outside of Japan.   These will include the study of Mindfulness, Ayurveda, Yoga and Macrobiotic educational opportunities that will allow us to live and experience Buddhism in our lives.

We are developing the basis for our practice in Kanjin 観心 meaning to have, "correct observation of the mind".

Things that we are taking into consideration in the location of the new Enkyoji Kanjin Meditation Center:

• Availability of public transportation
• Close to highway access
• Living quarters for long/short term practitioners
• Multi-use space
• Meditation and lecture space
• Dojo Space for Martial Arts and Yoga

All donations over $500 will be recorded on a special Mandala Gohonzon that will be displayed and prayed to each Anniversary for the "Enkyoji Meditation Center".

Donations over $1000 will have the donor's name permanently displayed as a NaFuda (Name Board) in the Main Hall.

We are a 501 3(C) so all donations can be used as deductions

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

Our 円教寺 Enkyoji Lineage was established in 1555 (1st year of Koji 弘治) by Nichijo Shonin

There have been 33 Jushoku of 長妙山 圓教寺 Chomyozan Enkyoji Buddhist Temple of Saga in our Lineage since 1555.

The current Head of Enkyoji Buddhist Network is, Kanto Tsukamoto Shonin.
