The Dharma Center of the Los Angles Hompa Hongwanji Buddhist Temple offers Dharma gatherings such as classes, seminars, and workshops in General Buddhism and Jodo Shinshu Buddhism for those who are new to the Buddhist concepts and continuing education for those already learning the Truth of the Buddha-Dharma to live teachings each moment in the Teachings.


Learning the Buddha-Dharma is a lifelong process. It constitutes the very core of the Buddhist approach to one’s life. We always set boundaries in our world by our limited knowledge and thoughts. However, the embodiment of the Buddha-Dharma enables us to awaken to the Infinite World of Wisdom and Compassion of Amida Buddha. Let us all listen to the Buddha-Dharma and live in the teachings daily.


If you have any questions about study classes, lectures, and education programs, please contact us at (213) 680-9130 or nishidharmacenter@gmail.com
