Welcome to the
Mountain View Buddhist Temple

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.
