OVERNIGHT GUESTS Hidden away behind a screen in the corner of the Dojo there are two single beds that can be flipped down for overnight stays for those that may have traveled great distances to attend any of our Buddhist meetings and events. Furthermore, one of the rooms on the second floor of Chomon House is furnished to be a self-contained guest room suitable for overnight or longer stays. And finally, a bed settee in the upstairs office can be opened up to sleep two more if necessary and thus, Chomon House can accommodate a up to five overnight guests at any one time.

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 transmission 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 organizing 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.
