Enkyoji Buddhist Temple of Rochester would also like to announce the dedication ceremony for the official opening of the Temple to the public 10:00am-Noon on Sunday April 5, 2015.  In Buddhist philosophy, it is very rare in the vast scheme of the Universe for a new Buddhist Temple to be founded much less one devoted to the dissemination of the Buddha’s final teaching the Lotus Sutra.

Fuse (generosity) is important, the Temple can always use offerings of labor, candles, flowers, fruit/snacks as well as tea, and monetary donations every week.

The Temple is a Dojo a place of Buddhist training, without practice there is no Buddhism.
