Monijiao is an all inclusive Buddhist school with roots going back as far as the 200’s C.E.

The word “Monijiao” (摩尼教) is Chinese and means “Teaching of Light.” Monijiao and Mingjiao are terms used to designate disciples of Buddha Moni the Bringer of Light (Moni Guangfo Ming Shi) in China and other areas of the world.

This site’s main goal is to publish articles, for the purpose of spreading the Teaching of Light in the Western Hemisphere and especially to promote Amitabha recitation.

Our primary scriptures are the three Pureland Sutras: The Larger Sutra on Amitabha, the Smaller Sutra on Amitabha, and the Contemplation (visualization) of Amitabha Buddha Sutra.
