Welcome to the Pasadena Buddhist Temple
Shinran Shonin, Founder of Jodo Shinshu
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 (Sakai Hall), 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 has been our resident minister since January 1, 2014.
THERE WILL BE NO "in-person" SUNDAY SERVICE AT THE TEMPLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
TEMPLE IS CLOSED. But if you need to talk to Rev. Gibbs, leave a message on the temple phone and he will get back to you or email him.
