Pure Land Buddhism in South Australia

'In the history of Mahayana Buddhism, the Pure Land tradition has played a distinguished role in spreading the Buddhist message of universal compassion.'

- from the Introduction to The Three Pure Land Sutras, Vol II, Shin Buddhism Translation Series, p. vii


Our school of Buddhism was founded by Shinran almost 800 years ago. Jodo Shinshu (The True Essence of Pure Land Buddhist Teaching) - or 'Shin Buddhism' - is grounded in the teaching of Shakyamuni Buddha and the Dharma Masters of India, China and Japan.

About 140 years ago, Shin Buddhism gradually began to spread beyond Japan, where it is the largest Buddhist school, and became better known and appreciated around the world. In Australia, too, we welcome all who wish to explore and share the teaching.
