The Pure Land Buddhist Fellowship was founded in the early1970's by a small group friends who had for themselves similarly 'discovered' or 'been touched' by some form of Pure Land Buddhism. These people were not 'converted' to Buddhism by anyone apart from the Buddha himself, and through their own studies of the few text books available in English at that time.

In September 2012 Chomon House (headquarters for the Shin Buddhist Fellowship UK) was awarded the responsability of organising the 17th biennial European Shin Conference. It can now be confirmed that this conference will take place at the Southampton Solent University Conference Centre on the 1st, 2nd and 4th of September 2014. To enhance the cultural experience for overseas delegates attending the conference we have arranged a coach trip for Wed 3rd. Please go to our new website www.chomonhouse.org for info on the conference, kikyoshiki (Buddhist Confirmation), the coach trip a more! There you will also find an article by Jim Pym that details the history of the PLBF ... and our plans for the future.

Jodo Shinshu Creed translation into English.

Entrusting the Vow of the Buddha and reciting the Sacred Name, I shall proceed through the journey of life with strength and joy.

Revering the Lightof the Buddha, reflecting upon my imperfect self, I shall strive to live a life of gratitude.

Following the Teachings of the Buddha, discerning the Right Path, I shall spread the True Dharma.

Rejoicing in the Compassion of the Buddha, respecting and aiding one another, I shall do my best to work towards the welfare of society.
