Our Mission

The mission of the Mountain View Buddhist Temple is to share the Jodo Shinshu teachings in a safe and inclusive environment for its members, its affiliated organizations, and those who seek to explore the Buddha Dharma.

Our Values

Dharma-Centered: We mindfully integrate and share our Jodo Shinshu teachings in all that we do.

Interdependence: We operate as a Sangha of individuals that look out for our collective well-being.

Tradition: We value the wisdom of those who came before us and look to them to pass on evolving traditions and responsibilities.

Impermanence: We operate with a deep appreciation for all the causes and conditions that brought us here, and are forward-looking with a long view for future generations.

Compassion: Understanding the nature of suffering, we endeavor to demonstrate loving kindness to ourselves and others in our Temple community and beyond.

Community: We strive for an inclusive and safe community where all abide by a code of conduct that respects and protects each other.

The Mountain View Buddhist Temple Sangha is made up of people of various backgrounds and ages. We are followers of Jodo Shinshu Buddhist teachings. Many “pioneer” members and their children and grandchildren are active members of the Sangha.

Throughout the years, more families and individuals have joined our Sangha adding to the diversity of our temple. New members are always welcomed and encouraged to participate in the many temple activities.
