Church Activities Are Now Virtual
Obon 2020 Is Cancelled Due to Covid-19

Welcome to the Gardena Buddhist Church

Thank you everyone for visiting our virtual temple through our website and for all the wonderful comments and feedback we have received for our Dharma messages both in text and video.


We are happy to announce that we now offer live-stream Sunday services! Please visit Live Stream Service for details and sign up to attend. Because we are now offering our live-stream service as well as our Megumi temple newsletter online, we will no longer be posting our weekly Dharma essays. We will continue to post our video messages, but they will now be a recording of our live-stream messages. Because of this, there will be a slight delay on Sunday before they are posted.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our online site and hope that you return often.

We apologize for not being able to invite you to our temple due to the covid-19 closure, but we hope to see everyone soon!

We regret that due to health and safety concerns the Gardena Buddhist Church will not be able to schedule on-site services during the Covid-19 crisis.

However, arrangements can be made to have remote services conducted.

Thank you once again to everyone for continuing to support our temple and our activities. Please be safe, stay healthy, and let's keep connected in the Dharma.
