Agon Shu Canada Buddhist Association
About Our Minister
Our Buddhist minister is Seiji Hayashi. He began his esoteric practice as an Agon Shu Buddhist monk in Japan in 1995 and takes the position of Buddhist minister in Brazil and Canada.
He has made numerous religious contributions to Brazilian individuals and the land of São Paulo, Brazil. During his presence in Brazil, not only has he expanded Agon Shu Buddhist teachings but also took exceptional steps for peace in Brazil:
In 2003, the second Great Sacred Fire Ceremony was held in Diadema City.
In 2013, the fourth Great Sacred fire ceremony in Diadema City was performed under his leadership.
In 2016, thanks to Brazilian members', workers', and Seiji's endeavour, our president Seiyu Kiriyama received a Peace Honour Award from the Municipal Council of São Paulo.
In 2017, he conducted the fifth Great Sacred Fire Ceremony in Diadema City.
In 2019, he led the first Great Sacred Fire Ceremony in São Paulo City. By this time, the Great Sacred Fire Ceremony was performed in São Paulo State for the 6th time in history.
On October 8th, 2000, he led the first Great Sacred Fire Ceremony in Diadema City, São Paulo, Brazil, to purify the land's karma and negative collective consciousness and to pray for peace and harmony in the city.
In 2010, he brought the third Great Sacred Fire Ceremony in Diadema City to success.
As a result of several fire ceremony performances in Diadema, its homicide rate declined by 82% from 2002 to 2011.
He also organized and performed Sacred Fire Ritual at CEU Jaçanã Municipal High School in São Paulo.
In 2018, due to our minister's past contributions, "Seiyu Kiriyama Day" (April 8th) was officially established in Brazil to honour our president's spiritual endeavours for world peace.
Inheriting the will of our Holiness, Seiyu Kiriyama, he now set his foot in the next nation of his journey: Canada, to purify the land of North America, to save the lost souls of Indigenous people, and to pray for peace and spiritual elevation in North America.
