For more than eight decades and across several generations, our temple has served as a crossroads for families, friends, and spiritual teachers of the Buddha Dharma.

By growing together, we seek to better understand our lives and live fully with the Dharma as our guide. Faced with the great problems of life--birth, sickness, old age, and death--the Buddha teaches us that through this suffering, we may awaken to great wisdom. Let us follow this path together as “fellow travelers.”


The Berkeley Higashi Honganji Temple, located in Berkeley, California, is affiliated with Shinshu Otani-ha, also called Higashi Honganji Temple, in Kyoto, Japan.


Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, or “True Pure Land Buddhism,” sprung from the teachings of Shinran Shonin about 800 years ago. Although not widely known in the United States, Jodo Shinshu is the largest sect of Buddhism in Japan. In 2016, we celebrate the 90th year of our temple's founding.

We welcome all who are interested to join us.
