Buddhist School
Buddhism is a religion and
philosophy with more than 2500
years of history dedicated to the
well-being of all human and other
living beings. Throughout this
long period, Buddhism has spread
accross the globe. In each country
where Buddhism has estabished
itself, Buddhism has made great
contributions to each nation’s art,
music, language and literature,
medicine and science.
Beginning as an investigation for
the meaning of life followed by
religious faith and practice, its
spirit and philosophy has inspired
many schools that follow the
Buddha’s teachings.

Marvelous Dharma as revealed in the

with our innate Buddha nature that
resides in every living being. This

The Head Temple

Nichiren Shū
One of the principle Japanese Buddhist traditions is
called Nichiren Shū, a school with more than 760 years
of history, based on the teachings of Sākyamuni Buddha
(who lived in ancient India nearly 3000 years ago), with
a special emphasis on the attainment of the Buddha’s
enlightenment as revealed in the Lotus Sūtra; and the
teachings of the school’s founder: Nichiren Shōnin
(1222-1282), a great Buddhist Master from the
Japanese tradition. The name of our school “Nichiren
Shū” literally signifies “The School of Nichiren”.
The spirit and philosophy of this school is primarily
respect for all humanity, for all religions and cultures of
the world, global peace and harmony, love and compas-

sion for all living beings. The coherent observance
between the religion we believe in and living from day
to day as a Buddhst, encourages us to consistently
strive to put into practice all aspects of Buddhism
while concentrating on the cultivation of wisdom, the
potential of each individual, meditation, insight,
gratitude, comprehension, the improvement of one’s
character, in order to realise the liberation from
suffering, develop happiness and spiritual growth.
Faith and practice are affirmed in our daily study and
recitation of the Lotus Sūtra and the Odaimoku (the
sacred title) of Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō (Devotion and

After the demise of Nichiren Shōnin, his
teachings began to be propagated
outside of Japan, initially on the Asian
continent and later by the priests and
lay beleivers in Hawaii, North and South
America, followed by propagation
throughout the entire world. In Europe,
Nichiren Shū arrived in the begininning
of 1990. Today, there are three temples
in Europe: One in the United Kingdom,
another in Germany and one in Italy.
