How much have I changed
after one-year course of study!
I knew nothing about Buddhism or Shin Buddhism at all, but, after taking the regular course at Chuo Bukkyo Gakuin Buddhist Seminary for just one year, I am now familiar with the Buddhist teaching, and able to read the Buddhist sutras correctly and gratefully…
I was not a graduate of Chuo Bukkyo Gakuin Buddhist Seminary, but, after taking the postgraduate course for just one year, I can now plainly deliver the teaching to so many people…
Chuo Bukkyo Gakuin Buddhist Seminary
