Membership in the BGJ-D e.V.

The “Jōdo Shinshū Deutschland (BGJ-D) e.V.” is a registered association, which invites all members to an annual general meeting in the second quarter.

(Because of the current corona epidemia in 2021 the general meeting will be later.)

At the time being, the membership fee amounts to

10 € per month or 120 per year

In exceptions (for unemployed, students, seniors with a small income etc.) the executive board can concede a minor membership fee. Ordained priests are exempt from the membership fee.

Since the BGJ-D shares the general goals with the EKO Community of European Shin Buddhists (an association for the promotion of European Shin Buddhism with its location in Düsseldorf), there exists siince 2008 the agreement, that members of the BGJ-D are automatically members od the EKO community. Membership in the EKO Association does not imply other obligations, but members receive invitations and information about the programme of the EKO Community. People who do not wish to enter the EKO Commutiy can declare this in their membership application form.
