The San Luis Obispo Buddhist Church, also known as the SLO Buddhist Temple, is a Buddhist temple located in San Luis Obispo, California. It serves as a place of worship and a community center for individuals interested in Buddhism and Japanese culture.

The temple is affiliated with the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha, which is one of the largest schools of Buddhism in Japan. Jodo Shinshu emphasizes the teachings of Shinran Shonin, a Japanese Buddhist monk who lived in the 13th century. The main focus of Jodo Shinshu is on the Pure Land teachings, which emphasize reliance on the compassion of Amida Buddha to attain enlightenment.

The San Luis Obispo Buddhist Church provides a serene and welcoming environment for its members and visitors. It offers regular services, meditation sessions, and study groups where individuals can learn about Buddhist teachings and principles. The temple also celebrates various festivals and cultural events throughout the year, such as Obon, which is a traditional Japanese festival honoring ancestors.

In addition to its religious activities, the San Luis Obispo Buddhist Church is actively involved in community service and outreach programs. The temple promotes social engagement, compassion, and harmony among its members and the wider community. It often collaborates with other local organizations to support charitable initiatives, cultural exchanges, and interfaith dialogue.

The San Luis Obispo Buddhist Church's physical structure typically reflects traditional Japanese architectural styles, with elements such as a pagoda, a main hall (hondo), and a meditation hall (butsuden). These spaces provide a serene atmosphere for meditation, prayer, and communal gatherings.
