Marysville Buddhist Church

Location Information

125 B Street
Marysville, CA 95901-1462

The Marysville Buddhist Church is a temple within the Jodoshinshu-Hongwanji-ha ('True Pure Land School, Denomination of the Temple of the Primal Vow '), popularly known as Nishi Hongwanji, headquartered in Kyoto, Japan.

Jodo Shinshu represents the largest Buddhist sect in Japan with over ten thousand temples. Jodo Shinshu Buddhism is found under the Mahayana (Greater Vehicle) tradition of Buddhism and founded by Shinran Shonin (1173-1263). The Hongwanji (Temple of the Primal Vow) originated from a temple built at the site of Shinran Shonin's mausoleum.

For followers of the Jodo Shinshu teachings, one takes refuge in immeasurable wisdom and eternal life that embraces and enters the lives of all people without regard to socioeconomic status or distinction between moral good or evil. This wisdom and compassion take form as Amida Buddha.
