The Shugen Temple of North America's formal name is Jigen-In (Hermitage of the Compassionate View of Kannon). Jigen-In is devoted to the practice and dissemination of the received teachings of the Shugen Buddhist tradition of Japan. Even for those that have no interest in religion, the teachings cultivate an ethical spirit, a healthy body, and a creative mind. Religious services, public talks, community events, calender celebrations, home visits, and religious training opportunities are currently being scheduled across the length and breadth of North America. Please consult our Schedule (currently being built) for additional information, schedules, registration, and sponsor opportunities.
