“Seeing New Shinran Centers, We Got Motivated to Build a New Temple for Ourselves”

Last year Shinran followers from the northeast of Japan visited the new Shinran Center in Toyama several times on their way to The Two-Thousand-Mat Hall. They experienced a healing atmosphere in the center when they sponsored a gathering there for Shinran followers in September; their will to build a Shinran center for themselves grew stronger. “I got motivated to build a new Shinran center in Iwate. I was especially impressed by the wonderful appearance of the Buddhist altar. It was very befitting of the center,” says Yukie Horiuchi who visited the center. “Also, we wanted a place where we could have Buddhist discussions for as long as we desired. We felt sorry when we could not rent a room for our missionary to take breaks in the places we rented for the lectures. We wanted to build a center where we could have lunch and talk together.” People’s desire to build such a Shinran Center as soon as possible got stronger and stronger and now they are having meetings about it. We are looking forward to hearing the news about other Shinran centers
