Five years ago today we moved into our current home in University Heights. After ten years of the Temple being downtown (2007-2017) and eight years of Buddha for You being near SDSU (2009-2017), we had the incredible opportunity to bring it all under one roof.
Together we saved this ninety-five year old church from being torn down and pulled off an amazing miracle. It was a beautiful experience as 1,123 people donated a total of $498,777 in 108 days for a down payment on the property. We moved the Temple and Buddha for You in on a weekend and have been sharing the Dharma in this location ever since.
I am so incredibly proud of everything this community has done to keep the Dharma Bum Temple moving forward. This pandemic has been rough for us all, but together we stay strong. We are still here and doing our best to provide a place of refuge and thank you for the love and support.
The world is a different place now, but we are excited about the future. We look forward to evolving and continuing to create ways to make a difference in the lives of those we encounter.
I look forward to seeing you around the Temple soon!
Yours in the Dharma,
