Every Spring for my birthday it is my honor to humbly raise money for the Dharma Bum Temple. Last April however as the pandemic hit us all hard, it did not feel right to ask for support, so we skipped the fundraiser. Due to the pandemic and for the safety of others, the Dharma Bum Temple and Buddha for You closed its doors March 12, 2020 and over a year later we are still closed. However, in many ways I believe the community is the strongest it has ever been. It is times like these when we cannot be together physically, the love and care we have for the community flows even deeper in our hearts. Do we miss seeing each other? Yes! Do we want to be able to laugh, cry, smile and feel joy together? Yes! Will that day come sometime in the near future? Absolutely Yes! I am excited to share that I do anticipate us opening again this year but we need your support. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE AND MAKE A DONATION!
THE DHARMA BUM TEMPLE WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The Dharma Bum Temple and Buddha for You will be closed until further notice. We believe this is the wisest and most compassionate response as the world deals with the Coronavirus. There will be no classes or programs held and the Temple will not be open to visit during the day. It is our sincere wish that all are free from suffering and we want to minimize any potential risk of adding to the suffering. Thank you for all the love and support during this difficult time!

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.
