In this world full of unrighteousness, heartlessness, oppression, and materialism, our crisis must be overcome. Yet, under karmic influences, human force alone serves none.
Spiritual means are necessary:
We must set our higher selves free from karma and ego if a brighter future is what we aspire to come.

About Our Buddhist Temple in Toronto, Canada

Agon Shu Canada Buddhist Association is a one-of-a-kind Buddhist Temple in Toronto. Our temple strives to uphold the long-disregarded original teachings of Buddha as the principle of spiritual journey. At the heart of the temple lies the Sacred Stupa, enshrining the true relics of Buddha. With such a mystical votive monument, Buddha’s Divine Spirit takes its presence in the sacred sanctuary, filling the temple’s atmosphere with ethereal serenity and making it a perfect place to connect with Buddha himself.


Just like Nichiren and Zen Buddhism, Agon Shu Buddhism is classified as Japanese Buddhism. Yet, what sets us apart from other Buddhist schools is our unique focus on individual and social karmic purification, pacification of deceased souls, and the hidden philosophy and spirit of Buddhism. Our practice is a combination of correct mind, ancient esoteric techniques, and the relics of Buddha, which further enhance the power of prayers. 


We seek to help individuals and communities persevere in this era of chaos and calamities and provide spiritual guidance and service for those who seek divine support and spiritual liberation. 


Come visit and pray to Lord Buddha. Join us to change the fate of our nation!

About Agon Shu Buddhism

Agon Shu's Main Temple, Agon Shu Shakazan Daibodaiji - Kyoto, Japan

Agon Shu intro (low res).png

Agon Shu is a Buddhist organization that embraces the authentic teachings of Buddha as presented in the Agama sutras. 


These sutras uncover the secret methods of awakening Buddhahood or higher self. According to the sutras, through the vigorous practice of given Dharma, one shall not only be liberated from his or her karmic conditions and worldly attachments but also be granted the freedom to change his or her predetermined trails of destiny.


Seiyu Kiriyama has committed his life to studying and practicing Agama disciplines and founded Agon Shu in 1978 in Kyoto, Japan, to propagate Buddha’s genuine words of wisdom and give people access to practice Dharma. 

Agon Shu Buddhism's emphases
Agon Shu's four primary emphases are

About Our Holiness Seiyu Kiriyama

In the midst of great crisis and despair, Seiyu Kiriyama became a practicing Buddhist under the guidance of the Juntei Kannon. Later, in search of ways of liberation from karmic causes and conditions, he walked the path of the seeker, moving from early Mahayana rituals to the esoteric Tantric practices of the late Mahayana, until at long last he discovered, in the Agama sutras, that are the sole original scriptures conveyed by the Buddha himself, the Method for the attainment of Buddhahood he had been searching for. This great teacher who practiced and mastered this method on his own led the followers of Agon Shu in its practice while continuing to pray for world peace and perform fire rites throughout the world.
