What is your interest in Amida-shu
Since there is no sangha in the small town where I live, beginning a sangha with the help of Amida Trust is an option. At the moment though I know of no others who might be interested to join me. So information from Amida Trust will help in my practice until others express an interest.

Welcome to this site, Valerie! Do you have a photograph that you can add to your profile page, please?

Have a good look round, starting with the link in the 'Welcome' box, top left. Then join in any discussions and special interest groups that take your fancy. (Groups in top bar) I've put you on the list for our 'Whispers from the Bamboo Grove' occasional newsletters. You can see some back newsletters here. Also our magazine Running Tide.

How about joining us for Monday Nembutsu practice?

I hope that you make many friends here and feel a welcome member of our warm worldwide sangha. Namo Amida Bu
