As of January 2, 2021 the Dharma Bum Temple and Buddha for You will be completely closed until further notice. All classes will continue virtually only and the Buddha for You online store is available for shipping or curbside pickup. As COVID continues to surge in San Diego, we made this decision with the health and safety of the community in our heart. We feel this is the wisest and most compassionate action at this time for everyone! We simply do not feel comfortable bringing groups of people together right now, putting everyone at risk. Sending love to all and please be safe!

    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.
