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.
Family services are held each Sunday. Service begins at 10:00 am and is followed by a separate English speaking Discussion Group. Dharma School meets on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month following Sunday Service. Sangha Teens and Jr. YBA meet monthly. Monthly Memorial service is conducted the first Sunday of each month in conjunction with the family service.
