Watsonville Buddhist Temple is a Temple of the Jodo Shinshu Nishi Hongwanji tradition of Buddhism. Jodo Shinshu began over 800 years ago in Japan, and is still headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, at the Nishi Hongwanji Main Temple. Our tradition is supported in the United States by Buddhist Churches of America (BCA). We are part of the Coast District of the BCA.

We strive to follow the path to enlightenment by preserving faith in the Three Treasures: Dharma (the teachings), Sangha (the people), and Buddha (the Enlightened One).
