The Butsudan
The Altar

The butsudan, a cabinet that enshrines and protects the Gohonzon, literally means House of the Buddha. The Butsudan is the cabinet where you enshrine your Gohonzon to protect it.

The butsudan is typically made of wood and can range from a simple, plain design to elaborate finishes and hardware. Every believer should endeavor to keep the butsudan dusted and clean and make it an attractive and safe place for the Gohonzon.
