Adelaide's Shin Buddhist Dojo

Pure Land Buddhism in South Australia


Welcome to our Adelaide Shin Buddhist dojo.

In the history of Mahayana Buddhism, the Pure Land tradition has played a distinguished role in spreading the Buddhist message of universal compassion. (The Three Pure Land Sutras, Vol II, Shin Buddhism Translation Series, p. vii)

Shin Buddhism (also known as 'Jodo Shinshu') is a school of the Pure Land tradition. It was founded by Shinran Shonin about eight hundred years ago.

Our dojo in Adelaide is a regional branch of the Hongwanji Buddhist Mission of Australia, which is based in Sydney. Our head temple is Nishi Hongwanji in Kyoto.

Please email us to make arrangements regarding counselling and funerals, and other inquiries.

Resident Minister: Rev George Gatenby

We meet twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at 10 am
