Notes and Events:

Our goal is twofold:

to provide a good learning environment for students

who aspire to learn and practice Pure Land Buddhism and the teachings of the sages,

and to train and nurture successors to continue the propagation of Buddhism.


To accomplish this, the PLLCA first emphasizes the foundation studies of

Guidelines for Being a Good Person,

Accounts of Request and Response, Changing Destiny,

the Ten Virtuous Karmas Sutra, and Precepts for Novice Monks.


These texts are the foundation in the study of

morality, ethics, causality, wisdom, and science.


Building on this foundation, students will progress to advanced studies

in the five Pure Land sutras and one treatise.

Activities at the TBC include weekly Friend’s Nights and Women's Meditation sessions, study courses in Buddhism and meditation, residential and day retreats and a monthly newsletter.  To help meet the costs of the TBC, donations are encouraged when attending Friends Nights and other events.  The fees for Introducing Buddhism and Introduction to Buddhist Meditation courses and for retreats are varied from time to time with the cost of living.  For more information, see the Program and Events and Newsletter pages.
