Welcome to the Temple!

Due to unforseen circumstances, TSS Mediation sessions are cancelled until further notice, sorry for any inconvenience.  Cooking Classes begin Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at 7pm and will run for 4 weeks - check the newsletter for costs and class information.

Something NEW... we have opened a Book Store called "Dharma Door" - from Children, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced books for anyone interested in studying Buddhism. Hours will be Saturday 11am till 2pm, and during any services or functions.  We have Gift Certificates which make a great Christmas gift idea for those hard to please people who are just itching to learn a little more about Buddhism.

Contact us to have your name included for the next session of the "Introduction to Buddhism Class".  Course date is February 10, 2016 - for information about this class please view "Latest News Section" of web site (or just click the "News" Tab). 

Thank you for visiting our Website, we welcome you to visit our Pure Land Buddhism Temple and share in the teachings of Shinran Shonin (see 'contact us' for location). One of the most common questions we receive is "Is your Temple open for anyone that is interested in Buddhism?" - Most definitely, we have a resident Minister who will welcome your questions. "Yes" most of our services are in English and we do chant in English (see below). "Yes" kids are welcome! The other very common question relates to "Meditation?" - please see the upcoming events section of the web site or read our newsletter for dates and times.

We encourage you to contact us, should you have any further questions about our religion, Temple activities or wish to be included in our distribution list for our free monthly newsletter. Please check the Links , where you will find articles and information of further interest if you are new to Buddhism and looking for information about Jodo Shinshu Buddhism. One day let us welcome you as a member of our Temple. Links to other Okanagan Temples listed below.

The Buddha felt that the Dharma should be freely given and while this is so, it costs money to maintain the Temple, because of that we rely on your generous donations however large or small (see Donate Today link below).

English Chanting led by Reverend Yasuhiro Miyakawa - Amida Sutra (Amida Kyo), and Hymn of True Shinjin & The Nembutsu (Shoshinge)
