Teaching Children Buddhism

Sutra recitation - chantingEvery parent wants the best for their child. Teaching children the Law of Causality, the law of cause and effect, is the best cause a parent can make. Buddhism teaches that overcoming obstacles in life enables you to eradicate your negative karma, and allow you to attain true happiness. Every parent also knows they need to teach their children how to deal with life’s ups and downs.

At Myosenji Temple, children learn Buddhism to build a strong foundation to live their daily life making good causes. Our children, with their parents, meet regularly with our Assistant Priest to learn about Buddhism.

Nichiren Daishonin, the founder of Nichiren Shoshu, in his Gosho “Letter to Misawa” teaches:

One may encounter a good teacher and the sutra of the true teaching and thereby learn the true Law. Inevitably, at the time when he resolves to liberate himself from the sufferings of birth and death and attain Buddhahood, he will encounter the three obstacles and four devils, just as a shadow follows the body and rain is accompanied by clouds. (Gosho, p.1202)

This Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day in America.  It would be a great day for the family to learn about Buddhism.  Join us at 11 am to learn about the Law of Causality and how to make good causes for your life. Call or email the Temple if you have questions.
