Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple

Location Information

505 East 3rd Street
Los Angeles, CA 90013

Throughout the 2,500 years of its history, Buddhism has evolved over the years to meet the spiritual needs of the people. Our Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple is an affiliate of one of the oldest and largest denominations in Japan, the Shinshu Otani-ha with approximately 10,000 temples and 10,000,000 members. It espouses the teachings of Jodo Shinshu (also known as Shin Buddhism, a form of Pure Land Buddhism). The Honganji tradition traces its beginning to Shinran Shonin (1173-1262), a priest of the Kamakura Period and a student of Honen Shonin, the founder of the Jodo Sect. The central practice of listening to the Buddhadharma (teachings) was Shinran's conviction in opening a path to enlightenment for all.
The Jodo Shinshu movement in the United States had its beginning just over 100 years ago, and has grown rapidly with many temples throughout the country. We encourage you to visit our temple and hope that by learning about the various services, you too, will find the serenity to not only enjoy living, but to contribute to the general well being of all living things.

Our temple offers a spiritual environment which cultivates individual exploration

based on the Buddhadharma. Through self-reflection, we are encouraged to
strive for harmony with respect for the differences in our diverse community. Hopefully, you will find here a respite from the concerns of the outside world and join us to seek a deeper understanding that will lead to more meaningful and rewarding experiences
as we continue on the path of life.
