Welcome!

Dainichi with Amida and Benzaiten

We are a Buddhist temple community putting the teachings of Tendai Buddhism into practice in the Washington, DC metro area with members from Virginia, Maryland, and DC. All are welcome to attend.

 

We regularly meet once per week for chanting liturgy (gongyo) and meditation service.

You are welcome to download our service booklet, which is in English with some transliterated Japanese and Sanskrit.

Effective 3/14/2020, ALL IN-PERSON Sunday services are CANCELED until further notice. Please periodically check back on our Calendar for online outreach events.

For public health safety, many places throughout the Washington DC region are suspending public meetings and services to limit spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). We hope you stay healthy and in good spirits. Please reach out if in need of community support.
