    About Shinnyo-en
    Shinnyo-en is a lay Mahayana Buddhist denomination originally established in 1936 in Japan by Master Shinjo Ito together with his wife, Tomoji. Shinnyo-en is based on the Mahaparinirvana Sutra which is the last Teaching expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha before He entered into Nirvana. The name “Shinnyo-en” means “a place without borders where all who desire to bring forth their true nature are welcome”. Shinnyo-en is a place where all people regardless of age, gender, nationality or religious background can cultivate their innate buddha-nature, understand their karma and change their lives for the better. Currently, there are almost 1 million practitioners practicing in 138 centres in 16 countries around the world and Shinnyo-en today is led by Her Holiness Shinso Ito, who is Shinjo Ito’s direct successor.

    About Shinnyo-en Singapore
    Shinnyo-en Singapore began its activities in 1994 in central Singapore and we are currently located in the Eunos area. Practitioners come from all walks of life and comprises adults, students and their families. Shinnyo-en practitioners cultivate their innate buddha-nature, practicing in the society, while returning to our training centre regularly for meditation, sermons, dharma talks, services and activities. Practitioners also engage in community services like early morning cleaning at certain MRT stations, volunteer work with Lions Befrienders, Ren Ci hospital; social contribution and outreach efforts to the PERTAPIS Children’s Home, Society for the Physically Disabled, the Yellow Ribbon Kitchen, etc. Shinnyo-en Singapore also supports the youths through a scholarship at the Nanyang Technological University’s (NTU) Wee Kim Wee School of Communications and the GO-FAR (Going overseas for Advanced Reporting) project which allows aspiring young journalists the opportunity to train as foreign correspondents.
