About the Dojo

The Adelaide Shin Buddhist Dojo is home to the Adelaide Jodo Shinshu Study Centre. It was dedicated on 15 March 2009 by Rev Shigenobu Watanabe, head minister of Hongwanji Buddhist Mission of Australia (HBMA) in Sydney. Our Dojo is maintained by HBMA members who live in Adelaide.

A Dojo is a small dedicated space, often in a private home, for the study and practice of the Buddha Dharma. Although there are thousands of larger Shin Buddhist temples, in the early days - about eight hundred years ago - members held their meetings at dojos.

At our Dojo 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.
