Introduction of
Jen Chen Buddhism

Sakyamuni Buddha came to this world more than 2,500 years ago. His life spanned 81 years and for 49 years he expounded on the Dharma. During this period, by expedient means he preached the five vehicles of Buddhism, namely the Humanity Vehicle, the Heavenly Vehicle, the Sravaka Vehicle, the Paryeka-Buddha Vehicle and the Bodhisattva Vehicle.

Jen Chen is a phonetic translation from Mandarin Chinese (人乘佛教), meaning Humanity Vehicle. The term 'vehicle' in Buddhism is analogous to a conveyance of deliverance for sentient beings.

World Jen Chen Buddhism was founded by Venerable Master Shen Kai. It aims to purify the human mind and promote a blissful culture for humanity. World Jen Chen Buddhism is dedicated to the spreading of the Humanity Vehicle Buddhism. As the name suggests, Jen Chen Buddhism's relevance to our daily lives constantly confronts us.
