    Jul 15Shinnyo-en Singapore
    Ullambana Service






    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. Master Shinjo was trained in traditional Shingon Esoteric Buddhism at the Daigoji Monastery in Kyoto. After completing his training and receiving recognition as a Great Acharya in Shingon Buddhism, he went on to establish Shinnyo-en. Aside from its esoteric roots, Shinnyo-en is also based on the Mahayana 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.

    Jul 22Full Moon in the Chinese Sixth Lunar MonthAsalha Puja or Dhamma Day.





    This commemorates the Buddha's first discourse, the Dhamma-Cakka-Pavattana Sutta (the Discourse on the Turning of the Wheel of Truth) in Sarnath (Isipatana, Benares) - the Deer Park , which he gave to the group of five monks with whom he had practised in the forest for many years. Upon hearing this discourse, one of the monks -- Ven. Kondañña -- gained his first glimpse of Nibbana, thus giving birth to the Noble Sangha. The annual rains retreat (vassa) commences the following day.

    Note: At the end of this first sermon, the Venerable Kondañña became a Sotapanna (a person at the first stage of enlightenment) and then, according to the Commentaries, for example, the Commentary on Vinaya, the other four disciples became Sotapannas, one on each of the four following days. On the first day after the full-moon day in July, the monk Vappa became a Sotapanna; on the second day, Bhaddiya; on the third day, Mahanama; and on the fourth day, Assaji. After they became Sotapannas, they all asked Buddha for ordination. Buddha ordained each of them by calling to them, "Come monks." On the fifth day after the full-moon day, the Buddha assembled them and preached to them this discourse Anatta-lakkhana Sutta. -The Discourse on the Not-self Characteristic (no-soul or anatta)
