As we welcome our new altar and Nirvana Buddha image at our Eunos temple on the 14 Oct, we remember Master Shinjo’s teachings and wish for us to cultivate our inherent Buddha nature through acts of lovingkindness and compassion.
Did you know that all Shinnyo-en’s Nirvana Buddha images, big or small, are sculpted by our founder, Master Shinjo Ito? Today, the Nirvana Buddha images are created by a mould cast he created when he was alive.
Master Shinjo Ito sculpted with the wish to uncover and develop this hidden buddha nature that is inside every individual. In his words, “I would like you to feel at peace sitting in front of the Nirvana Buddha image. I hope by viewing this Buddha image, people can be awakened to their innate buddha nature and cut the root of negative karma and live a peaceful and joyous life.”
