  • I checked the schedule and saw that the temple is offering guided tours on Fridays, between 5:30 pm and 7:30 pm (visits start every half hour, free of charge, but you can leave donations). A temple contributor explains the story of the Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama, or Xáquia-Muni), and the evolution of Buddhism from India to the Japan. There is also a little about the Japanese Immigration to Brazil, and from Japanese to capital and the construction of the temple, which now houses the religious rites, a famous annual Carnival (in August), in addition to Japanese language classes, tai chi, martial arts, ikebana, and other activities such as shiatsu and meditation. The temple was also listed as a historical heritage of Brasilia recently. After the explanations, we can be comfortable in the lounge, take pictures (no flash) or buy something in the gift shop (books, ornaments, souvenirs, statues of Buddha, incense etc). You need to take your shoes off to get into the Hall, and as a temple, it is important to dress discreetly.

  • I came to Brasilia to visit daughter and grandson who live in SQS 316, next to the Buddhist temple. I knew, from the time when I lived in the city, 30 years ago, on the same block. Today, Saturday, followed her daughter to the temple to buy vegetables and organic fruit. Quality products at good prices, more than that, a space for coexistence of neighbors and people who come from other blocks. For those who, like me, like to eat healthy and enjoy a quiet chat on Saturday morning, that's a good tip.

  • In sqs 316, the pure land Buddhist temple. Easy to find by the Eastern aspect of construction. It might attend the temple to enjoy the peace of the central hall or to do any of the activities such as Tai chi, yoga, ikebana ... I live in Brasilia and whenever I go over there.
