Overview of the Day
The Orange County Interfaith Network cordially invites you, in partnership with its Interfaith Awareness Week, to please join the House of Worship Tour for a visit to the Shinnyo-en Temple.
Shinnyo-en is an international Buddhist community dedicated to helping people realize greater self-awareness, happiness, and harmony for the good of humanity and for a world of peace. The name Shinnyo-en means “a garden without borders”, where all people can bring forth their innate, true nature. All are welcome here, and with sincere effort, anyone can reach enlightenment and find true happiness. Shinnyo-en derives its main inspiration from the Nirvana Sutra, the final teachings of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, which expounds that all beings have the ability to attain enlightenment. Shinnyo Buddhism is also further classified by its qualities as a Dharma lineage: Esoteric and Mahayana. Program will include learning of the faith traditon, participating in a meditation service, traditional tea ceremony, Q&A with Rev. Nichelle Madrigal, lunch, and performance by Shinnyo-en Taiko Drummers.
