The Mission of the Shinshu Center of America

The Shinshu Center of America (SCA) is an organization established by the Shinshū Ōtani-ha (Higashi Honganji) headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, with the purpose of promoting research on Jōdo Shinshū (Shin Buddhist) studies, providing ministerial training, and disseminating the teaching to the general public. In order to achieve these goals, the SCA offers public lectures and publications in English, as well as hosting training workshops for future ministers and Sangha leaders.
