What to Expect

Visitors are always welcome.

No prior knowledge about Tendai Buddhism or meditation is required.

Sunday Sutra Service

Our Sunday service has an emphasis on the Tendai Daily Service. Most of it will be recited in English with a few transliterated parts in Japanese and Sanskrit. This service creates a sacred space conducive to mindfulness that will enable greater focus during the Shikan meditation that follows. We conclude the service with a short Dharma talk. After Sunday service ends at 11:30am, we have tea and cookies together.
