WELCOME TO THE OGDEN BUDDHIST CHURCH Our sect is called Jodo Shinshu Honganji Ha, or Nishi Honganji. Our Mother Temple and International Headquarters are located in Kyoto, Japan. We are also affiliated with the Buddhist Churches of America (B.C.A.), with headquarters in San Francisco, California. As a member of the Ogden Buddhist Church, you are joining the Sangha (Fellowship of Buddhists) in our efforts to support and follow the teachings of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism. As we enter the 21st century, Jodo Shinshu Buddhism is at a crossroads in its development and expansion in the United States of America. Although Jodo Shinshu has been in the United States since 1899, we are still in the beginning stages of truly becoming a part of the larger religious landscape of this country. Through the personal sacrifice and determination of the Japanese immigrants and their descendants our temple exists today. However, we now find ourselves living in a changed environment from that of our founders. To meet these ever changing needs, we must develop a new methodology by combining the sacrifice and determination of our pioneer members with new ideas, to ensure the continuation of Jodo Shinshu in our present community. Jodo Shinshu Buddhism has much to offer in teaching us about living a spiritually awakened life, in the midst of ordinary circumstances. To follow the Nembutsu path is to live a life of gratitude for Amida Buddha's infinite wisdom and compassion. Our Temple is here to help us understand how we may express appreciation for the wondrous gift of Shinjin bestowed upon us. Services are generally held each Sunday at 1:30 pm during the school year. However, please check the calendar for specific dates and times of services.
What's Happening At The Ogden Buddhist Church!

As some of you may know, The Yonetani-Wilbur Family lost their home and all their possessions in a house fire last week.

 

We are asking that you join us at Pizza Pie Cafe in Layton anytime between August 22nd and August 25th.  Please mention the "Wilbur Family" and 25% of what you spend will be donated to them!

 

What an easy way to help!  You have to eat anyways, why not eat Pizza and help the Wilbur's at the same time!
