As a religious institution, we do recognize that students will be coming from various colleges to visit our temple for class
assignments. With that said, you are more than welcome to come to
ANY of the Sunday Services we have throughout
the year. Most of the services are regular family services, but sometimes (about once a month) we conduct special
services to observe the different Buddhist Holidays. You are welcome to attend those as well. There will also be some
Sundays where we will not have service (due to a fundraising event).

We know that a busy schedule comes with the role of being a student. With that in mind, we will always do our best to
help you in any way possible. Attending one (or more) of our Sunday services will probably give you the best idea about
what our practices are, and how they are used during service. We also recommend attending a service because there
will always be someone available to answer questions, and give you more information.
IF attending a service does not
workout with your schedule, we will be happy to
schedule an appointment where you can come in and get a tour of
the Temple, and/or speak with someone to answer any questions you have.

Please check the Sunday service schedule to plan on when you would like to visit/attend.

Thank you for your interest in our Temple!
To be respectful of our Sangha members (congregation) attending the service, we ask that you please keep your
cell phone on SILENT, or turn it OFF.

There is NO FOOD allowed in the Hondo (sanctuary; where services are held). Eating and/or drinking are NOT
PERMITTED during service.

If you must speak to a fellow classmate (or need to ask a question), please keep your voice down to a whisper.
On the FOURTH SUNDAY of each month (excluding May, August and December), the Buddhist Education Committee holds a
class that provides general information on Buddhism, and the Jodo Shinshu Sect of Buddhism, for those who are interested.
There is also a Q & A session toward the end of the class if you have any additional questions, or feel as if something was left
unanswered.
This class begins at
9 a.m., and takes place in the SANGHA HALL (single story building) on the southside of the Temple's parking
lot.

If possible, please let us know in advance if you will be attending this "Fourth Sunday Program" so that we can inform whoever is
teaching the class. Thank you!
