'Cho-mon' is a Japanese word that translates to "Deep Listening". Pure Land Notes helps us to achieve this - through our eyes.
In its original form, Pure Land Notes was a simple A4 sheet that was posted to members of Shin Buddhist Association of Great Britain, a loose and informal organization that was founded by Jack Austin and Rev Hisao Inagaki in around about 1977. Read more ...

PURE LAND NOTES Since 2008, Chomon House has published a widely (world-widely!) distributed quarterly Shin Buddhist journal called Pure Land Notes. Due not in the least to the consistency and continuity of its engagement in the transition and indeed introduction of Shin Buddhism to the UK in around 1977, PLN has evolved to become a meeting place for those unable to attend our Thursday night 'core-group' gatherings at Chomon House. Those that subscribe to the journal represent the vast majority of the membership of the SBFUK. Please click/tap here >purelandnotes.com< or on the links above and below for details.

In 2012 Chomon House resident Gary Robinson became a ordained as Jodo Shinshu Buddhist priest and given the title and name Reverend Daichi by the Nishi Hongwanji organization in Kyoto, Japan. Following this, Chomon House was given the honor of organising the 17th biennial European Shin Buddhist Conference. To coincide with this significant event Chomon House became designated as the national H.Q. of the Shin Buddhist Fellowship UK. The International Association of Buddhist Culture, Kyoto, Japan supports the Shin Buddhist Fellowship UK. Chomon House, 6 Southcliff Road, Southampton SO14 6FH.
