Schedule/Content
・Buddism         

Buddhism is a spiritual tradition that focuses on personal spiritual development and the attainment of a deep insight into the true nature of life. There are 376 million followers worldwide.

Buddhists seek to reach a state of nirvana, following the path of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, who went on a quest for Enlightenment around the sixth century BC.

There is no belief in a personal god. Buddhists believe that nothing is fixed or permanent and that change is always possible. The path to Enlightenment is through the practice and development of morality, meditation and wisdom.

・Shingon Buddhism

Shingon Buddhism is one of the major schools of Buddhism in Japan and one of the few surviving Vajrayana lineages in East Asia, originally spread from India to China through traveling monks such as Vajrabodhi and Amoghavajra. Known in Chinese as the Tangmi, these esoteric teachings would later flourish in Japan under the auspices of a Buddhist monk named Kūkai, who traveled to Tang China to acquire and request transmission of the esoteric teachings. For that reason, it is often called Japanese Esoteric Buddhism, or Orthodox Esoteric Buddhism.

The word ""Shingon"" is the Japanese reading of Chinese: Zhēnyán ""True Words"", which in turn is the Chinese translation of the Sanskrit word ""mantra"".

 

 

・Shojin Ryori, Buddhist Cuisine

To follow one of Buddha's five proscriptions, ''you shall not kill,'' Japanese monks and nuns have prepared their foods without any animal ingredients over the centuries and their cuisine is called shojin ryori. The word shojin generally means Buddhist vegetarian in Japan but originally meant ''zeal in progressing along the path to salvation.
