First Weeklong Nichiren Retreat in North America

The Nichiren Buddhist Sangha of Texas along with the Nichiren Order of North America will be having a summer retreat in August of this year (2008). The retreat will be held at the Margaret Austin Center located just Northwest of Houston from August 1st to August 8th. This will be the first week long retreat offered by Nichiren Shu in North America. It will be focused mainly on practice with some discussion and Dharma Talks. Please consider attending this historic event to learn more about your practice and yourself. If you are new or curious about Nichiren Buddhism, this will be a wonderful week to learn about the practices of our lineage. It will be a perfect time to deepen faith and make friends in the Texas area and from around the continent of North America.

Dates: August 1st 4pm thru August 8th 9am, 2008

Cost: $300.00 per person (includes room and vegetarian meals) (a few work scholarships are available - see weblink for additional information)
