Our Temple officially opened on September 12, 2012 by our 68th High Priest, Nichinyo Shonin, and at the same time, given the name Shogonzan Myoshoji. It is the only Nichiren Shoshu Temple in Canada and located in Surrey, a part of the Metro Vancouver, British Columbia. We represents the west coast region including other provinces such as Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and
the territories (the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon). Myoshoji is where believers gather and carry out their faith and religious activities relating to Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism, under the guidance of our Chief Priest.
Nichiren Shoshu believers also host local meetings in all of cities in our region. People come together, recite the sutra, and chant Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo. Then, study a Buddhist topic and share their experiences with the practice.
Happiness, in the true sense, does not merely mean being satisfied with food, clothing and shelter nor does it signify simply living a life of comfort. Through upholding a consistent practice of true Buddhism, every single believer will be able to purify one's life, improve both spiritual and physical health, bring joy to one's family, and transform misfortune into good fortune. Likewise, through the widespread propagation of true Buddhism, people around the world will be able to enjoy peace and prosperity.
Please visit our temple to learn more about Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism and how you can start the practice of true Buddhism.
