Ōjō Raisan (Shoya Raisan) Chanting

The chanting of Ōjō Raisan (Shoya Raisan) is a Pure Land Buddhist tradition established in China by Master Shandao, which was widely embraced among the followers of Hōnen Shōnin.  This beautiful liturgy continues to be chanted in the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji School today. Join us to experience the settling of the mind through focused breathing and meditative listening.
