The current Dharma Bum Temple policy is "masks are strongly encouraged" but no longer required. We ask that you please do not come to Temple if you are sick, have a cough, or believe you have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19.
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.
