PURE LAND BUDDHISM
IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA

WELCOME TO ADELAIDE SHIN BUDDHIST DOJO

Shin Buddhism is also called Jodo Shinshu, which means 'true teaching of Pure Land Buddhism'. It is one of the largest schools of Buddhism, and was founded by Shinran (1173-1263).

A dojo is a small space that is reserved for reflection on the teaching (dharma). We meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month at 9.30am.

We serve as a resource for everyone in South Australia who wishes to know more about Shin Buddhism and we have books available.

Please also contact us regarding memorial services and funerals.
