Adelaide Shin Buddhist Dojo

Pure Land Buddhism in South Australia

Welcome to the Adelaide Shin Buddhist Dojo.

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.

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)
