The Dharma Bum Temple is a home for the study and practice of Buddhism. 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 lives 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 it for the benefit of all beings. When one enters the stream of Buddhism it can be confusing, so we are here to help make it easier to understand for people of all experience levels.
The Dharma Bum Temple offers Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation Classes, Dharma Talks, Homeless Outreach, Prison Outreach, Family Sangha Classes, Engaged Buddhist Training Program, Visiting Monks, Nuns & Buddhist Scholars, Silent Retreats, Morning and Afternoon Meditation, Buddhist Recovery Programs for Overcoming Addiction, College Meditation Groups and More… OPEN TO EVERYONE AND ALL FOR FREE!
The Dharma Bums are disciples of the Buddha, practitioners of the Dharma and caretakers of the Sangha.
