    • Sorry for the late reply. The half-day retreats are usually held the first Saturday of the month, starting at 12:30. It was not held this month due to the annual meditation retreat. Please come to next month’s half-day.

  1. Good day. I see that everyone is welcome for the meditation at the main hall. Are there hours for this? I heard about your temple because of the many Buddhas you have and was wondering if this was something the public also had access to.

    Thank you for any information you can provide.

    • Dear Kathleen: We have meditation classes every Saturday afternoon at 4:00PM. You are most welcome. It is free and open to the public.
