About Pureland Buddhism

“Since going to the Temple I have felt much more at ease with myself and my spiritual life has gained in meaning and purpose”. David Hope

Pureland Buddhism allows foolish beings such as ourselves to rely on being loved just as we are by Amida, the Buddha of Infinite Light.

Our main practice is saying the name of Amida Buddha (Namo Amida Bu), also known as the ‘nembutsu’, which connects us to what is infinitely loving and wise in the universe.

If you are also a foolish being then you can read more about Pureland Buddhism below, or simply come along to one of our services or events and feel the effects of the nembutsu for yourself.
