Since then it has remained an unbroken lineage of teacher and student relationships. Its goal is lo realize enlightenment in this lifetime and lead a productive and benevolent life. Shingon Mikkyo is also known for its healing tradition called Kaji, which is the transference of the Buddha’s grace instilling a sacred peace of mind and increasing ones life force.

Its benefits include relief from stress and anxiety and attainment of a peaceful mind. This practice is not difficult and requires around 15 minutes a day for beginners. Rev. Washo Saito’s teacher, Rev. Keisho Nagao, before retiring was second in charge of Koyasan Shingon headquarters in Japan.

Notes and Events:

We live in the Huon valley, a beautiful part of Tasmania. We are not a centre, just a couple of people trying to organise some Dharma teachings. :-) Though personally, we are Buddhist, the teachings will not be sectarian, since we believe many traditions have value. As a result, we hope to host teachers from Buddhist, Jain, and other traditions of mind-training and transformation.

We believe that public talks and in particular Dharma teachings should be free :-) so to the best of our ability we are determined to make these teachings freely available to the extent we can. To that end, we are funding public talks and teachings ourselves, though we are not wealthy. There will be opportunities for those who attend to express the value they find in these events by making gold coin donations. Donations should be made freely, so there is no “suggested donation”, no requirement for a donation. Unfortunately events incurs costs e.g hire halls etc.
