Jodo Shinshu Buddhists of Thunder Bay
Shin Buddhism offers spiritual guidance and a simple practise for people with busy family, community and career commitments. Family life is integrated into our practise, for both lay and minister alike.
We follow the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. Our teachings are understandable, meditation and chanting achievable, and practises attainable by ordinary people. We believe in personal open-minded reflection, direct experience, wisdom, compassion and liberation from suffering. We do not have a deity nor do we blindly follow a creed or teacher. Everyone of any race, age, gender, sexual-orientation, ethnicity, education, religious background, or status is welcome. We are all equal on the path to enlightenment.
The Jodo Shinshu Buddhists of Thunder Bay
are located in Thunder Bay, Ontario. We are led by a twenty-five year practitioner trained as a Lay Leader in the Jodo Shinshu tradition. Although, the focus in on Shin, the group does not follow a single path. Chants, recitations, etc. are used from various sects. Dharma study and discussions focus on the practical use of Buddhism in the twenty-first century.
