The Adelaide Jodo Shinshu Study Centre was dedicated on 15 March 2009 by Rev Shigenobu Watanabe, head minister of Hongwanji Buddhist Mission of Australia (HBMA) in Sydney.
A dojo is a small dedicated space, often in a private home, for the study and practice of the Buddha Dharma. Although there are tens of thousands of larger Shin Buddhist temples, in the early days - about eight hundred years ago - members held their meetings at dojos.
The dojo is maintained by HBMA members who live in Adelaide. We hold regular Dharma meetings and have a supply of books and religious items for sale.
The international head temple of our school (Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha) is Nishi Hongwanji, in Kyoto.
