The Nichiren Shu Buddhist Temple of UK 2016 Annual Seminar was a great success. This year the theme was "The Buddhism of Nichiren Shu".
During the seminar we were able to chant loudly with drums in the traditional way, practise Shakyō (sūtra-copying) and Shabutsu (copying the image of the Buddha), watch a DVD about Minobusan and our Head Temple, practise Shodaigyo meditation, learn about Nichiren Shonin's life and teachings and how to live our lives as Nichiren Shu Buddhists, and we learned the Nichiren Shu song Tachiwataru from a professional opera singer from Italy! We were also honoured to have Tarabini Shonin of Renkoji Temple in Italy as a guest teacher.
It was wonderful to see so many people practising and studying hard over the weekend, growing their Buddha seeds!
