Master Your Emotions The Buddhist Way (Understanding The Ten Worlds)


Learning about and practicing Buddhism will give you profound insights into the nature of life and suffering. You will develop a true perspective on how to lead a compassionate and mindful existence. The Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai of China, basing his work on the Lotus Sutra, established the theoretical building blocks for the three thousand realms in a single life-moment. One of the blocks is the concept of the Ten Worlds – Hell, Hunger, Animality, Asura, Humanity, Rapture, Learning, Realization, Bodhisattva and Buddhahood. All human beings possess the Ten Worlds and can go from one of them to another within a single life-moment.

Visit our Temple (In-Person or Online) this SUNDAY April 28, 2024, for a brief lecture by our Chief Priest, Rev Sakabe about the Ten Worlds, an essential teachings and practice of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism. The meeting starts at 2:00 pm and concludes around 3:15 pm. (IN-PERSON or ONLINE).

If you will be coming to the Temple, please arrive in enough time to sign in and get situated in the main Sanctuary. The meeting begins at 2:00pm. Our Live Stream will open at 1:50pm Sunday, April 21st.*

*Please note ALL times are Eastern Time (ET). Also, we do not record live streams for future viewing. We do hold our Introductory meetings monthly so if you miss one of the lectures you can attend next month.
