About Jodo Shu Peace Association (JPA)

The JPA’s Jodo Shu Peace Awards are given to temples and priests to recognize their social engagement work. The purpose of JPA Book Gift is to encourage the learning of privately financed international students in Japan by presenting books for their research and study. These are two pillars of JPA activities.
JPA focuses on various socially engaged Buddhist activities for peace, international exchange, and social welfare, while maintaining the purpose of sharing the teaching of Jodo Shu.
