Buddhism: Learn Why Chanting is Superior to Meditation

A frequent question our Chief Priest receives from guests and students when they visit our Buddhist Temple is:

Is chanting the same as meditation?

This Sunday, our Chief Priest will be explaining the answer to this question and why we chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. If you have explored meditation, it is important that you learn why chanting is superior if you are looking to change your life and change your Karma.

Buddhism’s Beliefs and Origins

Visit Myosenji Temple this Sunday, October 1st, for a video presentation and brief lecture on the Buddhist practice of chanting by our Chief Priest, Rev Sakabe.

  • Learn how to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and properly use the Juzu Beads, Buddhist prayer beads.
  • Q&A with our Chief Priest.
  • The meeting starts at 2:00 pm and concludes around 3:15 pm. Open to the public.

If you have decided to become a Buddhist or are interested in learning how to become a Buddhist, after Sunday’s meeting (about 3:30 pm) Rev Sakabe will be performing the Acceptance of the Precept Ceremony, the ceremony where you become a Buddhist.
