Jodo Shinshu began over 800 years ago in Japan, and is still headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, at the Nishi Hongwanji Main Temple. Our tradition is supported in the United States by Buddhist Churches of America (BCA). We are part of the Coast District of the BCA.

We strive to follow the path to enlightenment by preserving faith in the Three Treasures: Dharma (the teachings), Sangha (the people), and Buddha (the Enlightened One).

Hurricane Harvey

We send thoughts of warmth and kindness to those who are suffering and sorrow affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas. As a sangha we stand together as one and send forth our loving thoughts and concern for the welfare of all. Please use the following link to make a donation to the American Red Cross.
