The Zoom Shodai Meditation class available on every Saturdays

We are continuing to offer the Shodai Shugyo (Meditation) class currently.

The background of doing Shodai Shugyo is based on the scientific effectiveness of Prayer shared by Rev. Daiho Saito and here’s a brief summary of the study.

Dr. Rudolph Beard, former professor of cardiology at the University of California, conducted an experiment with 393 hospitalized patients and proved that prayer has great healing effects.

The experiment was held for ten months on 393 randomly selected patients. The patients, nurses and doctors did not know about whether the patients were prayed for and not. Those who prayed for the patients were called together from a group of various religions, including Catholics and Protestants. And they prayed for the patients.

The result was astonishing. The patient group that was prayed for displayed nearly astonishing results to treatment than the group that did not receive prayers. Among those with heart trouble in the group that was prayed for, the number that developed emphysema was one third of the group that was prayed for.

Not only praying for yourself, but also praying for others will be a powerful method to enhance our life.


The Zoom Shodai Shugyo class, for Japanese and English speakers, is held on Saturdays at 10:00am – 11:00am.
