The Gardena Buddhist Church was established in 1926 by the Japanese immigrants of the Gardena Valley in Southern California.

Buddhism readily adapts itself to a new land, blending in some of the native cultures and customs into the traditional Buddhist teachings. Buddhism in America is no exception: although of Japanese origin and tradition, we have blended American culture and customs into our services and have created a uniquely American Buddhism of Japanese origin.

The Gardena Buddhist Church belongs to the True Pure Land (Jodo Shinshu) Sect of Buddhism, the Hompa (Nishi) - Hongwanji Division, and is a part of the Buddhist Churches of America
