Tendai: A balanced and comprehensive approach to the study and practice of Buddhism

About this Event

Tendai-shu is a Japanese Buddhist tradition with its origins in the Chinese Tiantai Buddhist tradition (~4th century C.E.). It was brought to Japan in the 9th century of the Common Era by Saicho. It has flourished in Japan for 1100 years. Now, Tendai-shu has been transmitted to the United States and is available to those in Northern California who are interested in a Universalist form of Buddhism.
