Greetings from the New York Buddhist Church Sangha

The sangha members of the New York Buddhist Church welcome you to join us in hearing, learning and practicing the Buddha-Dharma.

The New York Buddhist Church (NYBC) is a temple of Jodoshinshu True Pure Land School Buddhism, whose head temple is Nishi-Hongwanji Temple in Kyoto, Japan. Shinran Shonin (1173-1262) is the founder of this school of Buddhism.

The NYBC has been serving the New York community since 1938, and was founded by Rev. Hozen Seki with the assistance of his wife, Satomi, and concerned lay people. They all wished to share the Buddha-Dharma in America's most populous city, which then had no center for Jodoshinshu Buddhism. Their wishes have flourished as today we continue to share the Buddha-Dharma here in New York.

May the Wisdom and Compassion of Amida Buddha touch your heart so that you may be awakened to the world of True Dharma with Nembutsu.

NYBC is a not-for-profit organization, committed to sharing the Buddhist teachings.

Our Mission Statement:

The New York Buddhist Church is a Jodo Shinshu/Shin Buddhist temple that promotes and enriches the understanding of Buddhism for its Sangha and the larger community.

Our Vision Statement:

The New York Buddhist Church seeks to be an accepting and compassionate community which awakens, transforms and liberates through the teachings of the Buddha and the Pure Land perspective of Shinran Shonin.

Our Values Statement:

We listen, speak and act with compassion, respect and gratitude because we believe that everyone can be enlightened.
