Nichiren Shoshu Significant Ceremonies

Attending the various ceremonies at the temple is an important part of the practice of Nichiren Shoshu. It is here where we put the profound principles of true Buddhism into a concrete physical form, so that we can participate in the true teaching with our bodies and minds. At the ceremonies, conducted by the Nichiren Shoshu priest, faith, practice, and study all come together.

Through attending the ceremonies, we are able to repay our gratitude to the True Buddha, who established true Buddhism and inscribed the Dai-Gohonzon, so that all people can be relieved of their suffering and led to the attainment of Buddhahood.
