Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism 

began on April 28, 1253 when our founder, Nichiren Daishonin, the true Buddha, established the teaching of
Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, the ultimate teachings in the Lotus Sutra. Nichiren Daishonin's teaching shows the doctrin
e of
cause and effect. And based on it, he reveals the true entity of all phenomena. The ultimate goals of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhist Practice are the attaining enlightenment in this lifetime and the establishment of truly peaceful world in which people can enjoy happy lives together based on true Buddhism. The daily practice consists of chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo and reciting a chapter-and-a-half of the Lotus Sutra, called Gongyo, to the True Object of Worship called the Gohonzon. Nichiren Shoshu has temples and propagation centers worldwide and actively propagates the true teachings of Nichiren Daishonin. As the only Nichiren Shoshu T
emple in Canada, we warmly invite you to visit and learn how to begin your daily Buddhist practice.
