Who We Are

We are a family-oriented

non-monastic community (or sangha) who follow the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha and Shinran Shonin.  Jodo Shinshu ("Shin") Buddhism is the largest form of Buddhist practice in Japan.  Its teachings were brought to the US over 100 years ago, and our temple in Vista was dedicated in 1981.



How We Practice

We hold family weekly services, Dharma School (during the school year),  Meditation Services, Yoga Stretching, Book Club, Festivals, and more.
