Welcome to the Buddhist Church of Sacramento.

The Buddhist Church of Sacramento Hongwanji Betsuin and its Sangha (congregation) extend a warm welcome to you to share with us the Dharma (teachings) as taught by Sakyamuni Buddha and expounded by Shinran Shonin.

 

We hope this website will provide a brief picture of the history and affliation of our temple, the religious, educational and social programs offered, and the affiliated and sponsored organizations associated with our Betsuin.  Please join us each Sunday at 9:30am.
