Welcome to the Pasadena Buddhist Temple
The Pasadena Buddhist Temple belongs to the Jodo Shinshu tradition of Buddhism. Our national organization is the Buddhist Churches of America, headquartered in San Francisco, California. Our temple was established in 1948, and incorporated in 1956. The temple and classrooms were completed in 1958. The annex, which is used by the PJAA Bruins organization to conduct basketball practices, was constructed in 1962. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2008. We welcome all to come and learn about the Buddha Dharma.
Rev. Gibbs will be our resident minister as of January 1. We welcome him to our sangha.
We will continue to be grateful for the presence of Reverend Tetsuo Unno, who will also officiate services for us as he has for over 40 years. Guest ministers will also be invited to our Temple Sunday services.
Family services are held each Sunday. Service begins at 10:00 am and is followed by separate a English speaking Discussion Group and a Japanese language Dharma Talk. Dharma School meets on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month following Sunday Service. Sangha Teens and Jr. YBA meet monthly.
