At Twin Cities Buddhist Association all are welcome. We’ve been part of the Minnesota community since 1946 when Japanese Americans, having been released from incarceration camps, settled in Minneapolis. Through their wisdom and guidance we are able to continue sharing and living the teachings of the Buddha.
We live in an unsettling, chaotic time. Everything from racial and political tensions, to global warming to the ongoing pandemic, can leave us feeling at odds with the world around us. Jodo Shinshu Buddhism offers a path and community that embraces all and forsakes none. It shows us a path through the chaos. Together our members enrich their lives and find happiness in a chaotic world through sharing the Dharma in community. We strive to live a life full of gratitude, happiness and awakening.
“Come as you are”. Shinran Shonin
