Spiritual Director: Myokei Caine-Barrett, Shonin  Email  (Phone: 713-429-1274)
Notes and Events:

All of our practices and services are based on the teachings contained within the Lotus Sutra as well as the writings of Nichiren Shonin.  The following five practices are taken from the Lotus Sutra.

  1. to receive and keep the Sutra in ones body and mind
  2. to read the Sutra
  3. to recite the Sutra
  4. to share the Sutra with other
  5. to copy the Sutra.
In keeping with these practices, we hold a chanting meditation service every Wednesday and a traditional temple service with dharma talk on Sundays.  Retreats and classes on basic Buddhism, the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren Shonin\\\\\\\'s writings are also offered.  We chant the Lotus Sutra in shindoku [our faith language--Japanese pronunciation of Chinese] as well as in English [for understanding].  Our primary practice is chanting Namu-Myoho-Renge-Kyo [devotion to the Sutra of the Lotus Flower of the Wonderful Dharma].

TWDD meditation originated in Tibetan Buddhist Meditation / Yoga practice. After a process of reforms, a series of public teachings has been developed by Master Hai Kong and has made available to the general public for the first time in history. TWDD represents a powerful tool to unfold our inner peace and to develop true happiness.

During each meditation session, we will give about half hour on-going teaching on " the three principle aspects of the path of true happiness" - a fundamental study set forth for successful meditation practices. Also we will do half hour standing meditation, 45 minutes of sitting meditation, as well as a short QA session.

The essence of TWDD meditation is to preoccupy one’s body, mind and speech with (holding) Mudra, (visualizing) Guru and (speaking) Mantra. In just a matter of 2 hours/per day in up to 7 days, all practitioners will be able to establish the connection to their own Dharma Nature, thereby generating the confidence to continue on the journey of spiritual development.

We respect that his successors continued to develop the Dharma, creating new schools of thought and practice. These are all valuable teachings, regardless of the school or tradition of the teacher.

We are dedicated to providing our members with a diverse and inclusive experience of the dharma. This means that we embrace the wide array of lineages and traditions that exist within Buddhism.

We are a completely self-sustaining and independent organization so we have complete autonomy with regard to our meeting formats and speakers. This gives us the freedom to explore and learn about different ways of meditating from different teachers. We have the unique opportunity to meet as peers and to speak freely about our individual approaches to practice.

We provide a space for reflection, discussion, mutual support, and learning. Each meeting begins with meditation instruction and a brief period of sitting. Our meetings focus on assigned readings as well as readings we will do as a group that cover a rich and diverse overview of relevant Buddhist teachings and topics.

Members are encouraged to share their personal experiences regarding their personal practice and spiritual journey.

We realize that all of us are both students and teachers at different moments of our lives--we all have something to teach and we all have something to learn.

Everyone is valuable and everyone is welcome regardless of religion, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or previous meditation experience.
