-------------------------- Welcome to the Manitoba Buddhist Temple
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 and to share with others our special Shin Buddhist teachings. 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.
Sensei Hayashi is officially installed as the Resident Minister of the Manitoba Buddhist Temple.
There are Three Essential Pure Land Sutras that were delivered by Shakyamuni Buddha. Sensei Ulrich has adapted the Amida Kyo (Sutra of Amida Buddha) into a short story for easy reading and further study. (for download only)
