We Welcome You

We Welcome You

For the past century the Tacoma Buddhist Temple has been an
enduring community that values inclusiveness and acceptance in
seeking enlightenment through Japanese Shin Buddhist teachings.
We welcome you to join us.


The Tacoma Buddhist Temple’s own Rev. Kojo Kakihara and Dr. Erik Hammerstrom will host a monthly reading group on the topic “Buddhism Today” starting in September. This group will focus on discussing writings about Buddhism in the modern world, as well as Buddhist views on contemporary issues. This group is non-sectarian, and welcomes anyone who has read the books to attend.

The group will meet on the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Kings Books, 218 St. Helens Ave., Tacoma, WA 98402. Kings Books will have copies of each book available for purchase in the weeks prior to the meeting. You can also order copies of the books through the BCA Bookstore.
