“Daimoku (Nam-Myo-Ho-Renge-Kyo) is like light. As the Daishonin says, "A candle can light up a place that has been dark for billions of years". Similarily, the moment we offer prayers based on daimoku, the darkness in our lives vanishes. This is the principle of the simultaneity of cause and effect. At that very instant in the depths of our lives our prayer has been answered”.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Each month meetings are held, usually in small groups (called districts) throughout the East Midlands. These meetings are friendly and informal and welcoming for new people that want to find out more about this Buddhist Practise.

Discussion Meetings
The discussion meeting is the key monthly meeting, which consists of a short period of chanting followed by a discussion on the agreed topic. These meetings are ideal for new people as topics are chosen to be broad enough for new people to feel included. If you would like to find out where your nearest one is, please contact info@chantingbuddhas.co.uk and we will put you in touch with your local district.

There are other meetings held during the month, some of which are more suitable than others for new people. The 'basics' meeting is increasingly being held on a monthly basis where a specific topic is discussed. These meetings can be slightly more 'study' based but still include a short period of chanting before the meeting and new people will be made more than welcome at these meetings.

Once again please contact info@chantingbuddhas.co.uk and we will put you in touch with your local district.
