WELCOME TO ISA
Congratulations on being accepted as a member of International Shugendo Association!
Here's what comes next:
1. Please use the PayPal button below to set up your monthly member donation. The suggested minimum donation is $25/month. (If you are unable to donate that amount, please donate what you can).
2. We will order your Daily Recitation book from Japan and send it to you as soon as it arrives. In the meantime, you will be invited to join several closed Facebook groups that will help you begin that practice, and to learn a number of foundational things. Please study these carefully and often.
3. It is our custom that beginning students should chant the Heart Sutra 1000 times total as a preliminary practice. This can take several months but you may start now (and you can learn the general manner of chanting from the mentioned Facebook pages). Here is a sheet with the Heart Sutra you can use to practice.
4. PLEASE BE SURE you have joined our email list by clicking "Join the List" in the upper right corner of our site header, above.
5. As soon as possible please connect with one of our centers, and attend events with Soke or his students in Japan, N. America, or Europe. Your real learning will take place in person!
