|BERKELEY BUDDHIST TEMPLE|
Buddhism is the teaching of awareness leading to enlightment (Awakening).
By following the Eightfold path and Nembutsu, we can be free of delusions and gain insight into Nirvana.
The teachings were introduced in India 2500 years ago by Shakyamuni Buddha (565-486 BC).
The Jodo Shinshu (True Pure Land) sect of Buddhism is based on Shinran Shonin's (1173-1263 AD) religious experience as the Way of Nembutsu.
