Welcome to The New York Buddhist Church

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 (founded 1938) is a temple of Jodoshinshu True Pure Land School Buddhism, whose head temple is Nishi Hongwanji in Kyoto, Japan.  May the Wisdom and Compassion of Amida Buddha, which embraces us just as we are, touch your heart so that you may be awakened to the world of Living With Nembutsu, guided by the teachings of Shinran Shonin (1173-1262).

The New York Buddhist Church 331-332 Riverside Drive, N.Y. 10025


Sunday June 16th at 11:30 am we will be having 
Asaji: Shinran Shonin Memorial.  This monthly service is held in remembrance of the death of the founder of our school of Buddhism, Shinran Shonin. We will chant Shoshinge, written by Shinran to express his own understanding, appreciation and gratitude for the teachings which he received from the Seven Masters and Shakyamuni Buddha.  This service will be in-person only. Namu Amida Butsu.
