Welcome to the Oregon Buddhist Temple website. OBT is located in beautiful Portland, Oregon and is affiliated with the Buddhist Churches of America which is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
Our temple follows Jodo Shinshu (also known as Shin) Buddhism, a sect in the Pureland stream of Mahayana Buddhism. Shin was founded by Shinran Shonin (1173 - 1263 CE) in Japan during the Kamakura period. Today, Shin is the largest Buddhist sect in Japan with 10 schools and approximately 25 million adherents. Our head temple is Nishi Hongwanji in Kyoto Japan.
We hope that the information on our web site helps you in your investigation of Buddhist tradition. Buddhists never judge other religions as false and we realize that some of you may just be satisfying a certain intellectual curiosity.
Thank you for taking an interest in our temple. In Gassho,
The Members of the Oregon Buddhist Temple
