"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities. In the
expert's mind there are few." ~ Shunryu Suzuki



The Dharma Bum Temple provides a home for the study and practice of Buddhism in America. We do not advocate one particular school of Buddhism, we are simply a bridge for people to enter into Buddhist practice. When one enters the stream of Buddhism it can be confusing, so we help make it easier to understand.

Dharma Bums focus on The Four Noble Truths, The Eightfold Path and The Six Paramitas. To speak about Buddhism is not enough, one must practice these basic Buddhist principles. Through diligent practice one will begin to realize the cause of their suffering, thus moving beyond suffering and entering into Nirvana.
