Kongo Zen Sohonzan Shorinji

Kongo Zen Sohonzan Shorinji is a religious organization with the unique philosophy of pursuing “Jiko Kakuritsu” (self-establishment) and “Jita Kyoraku” (mutual happiness for oneself and others) through Shorinji Kempo’s “Shin Shin Ichinyo” training and application of the teaching to day-to-day life.
Believing that a man is a “seed of potentiality” that houses the workings of the eternal universe, Kongo Zen preaches the virtue of nurturing this potential and realizing a peaceful and rich society through mutual respect and cooperation. At some 2,000 monasteries scattered all over Japan, cross-generational students, both young
and old, are enjoying the training
