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 (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 was founded by Rev. Hozen Seki in 1938 to establish a center for Jodo Shinshu Buddhism practice and study in New York.
 May the Wisdom and Compassion of Amida Buddha touch your heart so that you may be awakened to the world of Living With Nembutsu.
