Amida Shu is a community of people who practice the Amida Shu form of Buddhism. We are particularly inspired by the Pureland teachers of 11th C. Japan, and through the ages.
Although we are not a large school, there are Amida Shu groups and centres all over the world. These communities are made up of people from all walks of life, all with a deep commitment to the Buddhist path.
We encourage our members to follow lifestyles compatible with Buddhist ethics.
Amida Shu is led by the Amida Order, and especially the Head of the Amida Order, Dharmavidya David Brazier.
We are interested in creating harmonious communities, in welcoming everyone, and in making good friends.
Mission: The mission of the Amida Shu is to foster Buddhist faith and its application for the spiritual, social, psychological and practical benefit of all sentient beings, individually and collectively, past, present and future, here and hereafter.
