We are a Buddhist temple community putting the teachings of Tendai-shu 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.
Weekly services during November 2023 will be virtual only. Meditation and chanting services will continue online Sundays at 10:00 am via the regular Zoom link.
The 2402 Mt Vernon Ave, Alexandria building where we have met for the past decade is being sold. We are grateful to Yoga in Daily Life for hosting us as tenants and other community organizations.
