New 2nd Edition of Service Book (Gongyo)

 Now available from Amazon the newest edition of the standard service for Myosho-ji.  This is the format we follow for our regular Sunday services which are streamed live using Zoom.  Included in this new edition are extra prayers which you may find useful for various occasions in your daily life.  To those presented in the previous edition I’ve added even more.  Also I’ve introduced gathas and how you might use this type of Buddhist practice in your own life.  I’ve included information about this in the book as well as a couple of examples of my own creation to get you started.  Here at the temple we usually dedicate the last Sunday of every month for special prayers for healing.  I’ve included both the prayer and Nichiren’s instructions used for that service.  This book is the official service book of Myosho-ji Buddhist Temple a member temple of the Enkyoji Buddhist temple network.
