Myogyoji Temple is one of six Nichiren Shoshu Temples in the United States. We are located in West Chicago, Illinois. We serve the members throughout the Midwest (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Arkansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Kansas, Louisiana, and Wisconsin). Our Chief Priest, Reverend Shingaku Kato, conducts weekly ceremonies and various activities at the temple. He also leads Nichiren Shoshu activities in all of the states in our region. To learn more about our ceremonies and local activities, come visit our temple. There, you can learn about the teachings of true Buddhism and also meet Buddhists from all walks of life and all backgrounds.
Nichiren Shoshu believers also host local meetings in all of the states in our region. People come together, recite the sutra, and chant Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo. Then, they share their experiences with the practice and study a Buddhist topic.
