Dear Friends,

This past year has been unlike anything we could have ever imagined! I first want to send love to all those who have been impacted by the pandemic. Lives have been lost and hearts have been broken. My thoughts and prayers are with you during such a difficult time. After being closed for sixteen months, tears were flowing when we reopened our doors July 10, 2021. During the time we were closed, we built a virtual Dharma Bum Temple which thrived thanks to so many amazing volunteers. This allowed us to reach people all over the world, many joining us for the first time. It also created an opportunity for people who attended the DBT in the past, but had moved away to join us once again. A virtual Temple could not replace the beauty of gathering in-person, but it was the best we could offer the community considering the circumstances. Click here to read more...


The Dharma Bum Temple is a home for the study and practice of Buddhism, yet we do not advocate one particular school of Buddhism. Our community is simply a bridge for people to learn how to make change within their own life and be of benefit to others.

The Dharma Bums focus on The Four Noble Truths, Eightfold Path and 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 for the benefit of all beings. When one enters the stream of Buddhism it can be confusing, so we help make it easier to understand.

The Dharma Bum Temple offers Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation Services, Dharma Talks, Homeless Outreach, Prison Outreach, Dharma Bum Kids, Dharma Bum Teens, Dharma Bum Life Program, Visiting Monks, Nuns & Buddhist Scholars, Silent Retreats, Morning Meditation Services, Meditation and Intro to Buddhism Classes in Spanish, Buddhist Recovery Program for Overcoming Addictions, Co-Ed Buddhist Fraternity, College Meditation Groups and More - ALL FOR FREE! 

The Dharma Bums are disciples of the Buddha, practitioners of the Dharma and caretakers of the Sangha.
