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, December 10th at 11:30 am we will be having "Jodo-e" Bodhi Day service, which commemorates the attainment of perfect awakening by Shakyamuni Buddha. In Mahayana Buddhist tradition, Prince Siddhartha Gautama became Buddha (Awakened One) at the age of 35 under the Bodhi tree. His teachings continue to guide us to attain lives of true peace and happiness. Rev Kurt Kyosei Rye will be the speaker.  
We hope that you will join us in-person or online for this special service. Namu Amida Butsu.
