Buddhism Basics

Buddhism is a major world religion based on the teaching of Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. Buddhism, like Christianity, has many “denominations” and variations.  BTC is a Jodo Shinshu temple with ties to Higashi Honganji in Kyoto, Japan.  Click on the  Buddhism Basics links in the header above for links to basic Buddhist concepts accepted by all Buddhist sects.

We hope to add more information on the teaching of Jodo Shishu Buddhism in the future.
