We are a group of Canadians who are followers of the Jodo Shinshu "Shin" sect of Pureland Buddhism.
The community is joined together by the gladness of receiving the shinjin of Amida Buddha's Vow to embrace selflessly all beings with wisdom and mercy, without a trace of discrimination or prejudice, and that is, with no exceptions.
As Shin Buddhists, we seek to be humble and sincere in words and deeds, to be responsible citizens of our society. Understanding fully, the principle of causality, we do not practice petitionary prayer or magic and we do not depend on astrology or superstitions.
We hope that this site will give you a brief understanding of what our sect of Buddhism is all about. We wish you well on your quest for knowledge.
The best part of ourselves is each other. The best part of spiritual awakening is Other Power.
