Welcome to the Cleveland Buddhist Temple
You do not have to have special knowledge, experience or beliefs to come through our doors. Even if you are completely new to Buddhism, we invite you to join us. Just bring yourself. Our motto is “Come as you are.”
The Cleveland Buddhist Temple offers Shin Buddhist Services that are open to all. Please check our newsletter for more details on dates and times.
From the beginning, Cleveland Buddhist Temple has been home to a Sangha, or community, that follows the Jodo Shinshu path of compassion, gratitude and the “entrusting heart.”
Throughout the year Cleveland Buddhist Temple also offers numerous special events, holiday celebrations and music performances. The temple welcomes people of all races, nationalities, lifestyles, and beliefs into its midst.
We also offer opportunities to increase your understanding of Buddhism and other mindful practices.
"Pure Land Buddhism might suggest an otherworldly orientation, but its primary focus is on the here and now. Not the here and now grasped by the controlling ego-self but the here and now cherished as a gift of life itself to be lived creatively and gratefully, granted us by boundless compassion. The bountifulness of great compassion makes possible our liberation from the
iron cage of our own making."
