Teenagers, 9th grade through 12th grade, are encouraged to join our Junior Young Buddhist Association (Jr. YBA). Our Jr. YBA participates in the Bay District Jr. YBA, which sponsors conferences, retreats, field trips, meetings, and volleyball. Our goal is to learn Buddhism, meet other like-minded people, make new friends and have fun. Come join us!

The Dharma School meets every Sunday morning and is for children pre-school age through the 7th grade. Students learn about Jodo Shinshu through stories, arts and crafts, and discussions. In addition to our weekly classes, Dharma School activities include our annual Bodhi party, Hanamatsuri skit, and snow trip. Please see the temple calendar for dates and contact the temple office with any questions.

The Fujinkai decided to change the name of the group to Women’s Buddhist Association (WBA). One of the motivation to welcome all women from all ages and all walks of life thus to create an organization to reflect a broad range of talents, ideas, and energy.

Like the Fujinkai, the WBA will support the temple through its activities, such as the Spring Food Bazaar and the temple Summer Bazaar. However, it is not “all work and no play.” We know how to have a good time. For one, there's the annual Reno Bus Trip.Previously there were also visits to the Asian Art Museum to view the Masters of Bamboo Exhibit and to a play, "Menopause the Musical" at Pier 39 in San Francisco. There is an annual luncheon recognizing its new members.
Monthly meetings are held on the first Sunday of each month but it is not necessary to attend every one. Minutes of the meetings are distributed to the members. These meetings are opportunities to share ideas, plan activities, and work on projects that could help the temple. For more information, please contact the temple office.
Members are invited to offer incense in the temple beginning at the 9:45 a.m. The meeting begins at 10 a.m.
