For over 100 years, the Visalia Buddhist Temple has made it's home in the heart of Dowtown Visalia. Over the recent years, our Sangha (congregation) has quickly blended into American society with persons of all races and religious traditions finding their way to our welcoming style and easily understood teachings of the Dharma. Being a smaller, but certainly vibrant, Temple (as are many in the Central California area), we have much to offer. Within the Central California valley, we have access to (or sponsor) workshops, fun trips, retreats, foreign tours, and seminars for all ages. So please feel free to explore our site further. Thank you for visting the Visalia Buddhist Temple: A Family Place.

Beginning at 10 AM, children and adults are in the Hondo. During the second half of the service, the children are excused to go to their classes and the adults remain for Dharma Discussion. All ages gather together to close the service. The entire service lasts about 1 hour. Regular Sunday Morning Services may be combined with important traditional observances such as Shotsuki Hoyo and various Buddhist observances. This makes it possible for all to attend and does not significantly extend the time of the service, just the format. Our services are in English, with an occasional speaker who will give a Japanese language message. We have a Chairperson, chanting, singing, a Dharma Message given by the priest (minister), the offering of incense, and closing words. This format is distinctly different from those in Far Eastern countries and more closely resembles the American Sunday Service.
