Map of Senshin Buddhist Temple, Los Angeles, 1311 W 37th Street

Senshin Buddhist Temple will be having their Obon Bon Odori Event on Saturday with dancing from 7:00 pm, Omairi in the Hondo at 9:00 pm, then Sento Shogen (1000 oil lamps), Otoki, and ending with Horaku by Kinnara Taiko at 10pm. Senshin Temple is close to USC.

Obon is a significant and deeply meaningful annual event in Japanese culture. Rooted in Buddhist traditions, Obon is a time to honor and pay respect to the spirits of ancestors. It is believed that during this period, the spirits of the deceased return to visit their living relatives.

Senshin Buddhist Temple isn't your typical Obon Festival. There isn't food booths and games tents that line the parking lot, the focus is on the meaning of Obon. 

After the Bon Odori, don't miss the special lighting of 1000 oil lamps, also live Taiko in the center stage.  Don't miss this very special event.
