Buddhist Chanting & Calming of the Mind

May 7th Buddhist Temple blog
A frequent question our Chief Priest receives from guests and students when they visit our Buddhist Temple is:

Is chanting the same as meditation?

Yes and no. This Saturday, 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 more about chanting at our Buddhist Temple.

Buddhism’s Beliefs and Origins

Visit Myosenji Temple this Saturday, May 7th, for a video presentation and brief lecture on the Buddhism by our Chief Priest, Rev Murata.

  • 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 Murata will be performing the Acceptance of the Precept Ceremony, the ceremony where you become a Buddhist.
