JODO SHINSHU BUDDHISM
Over 2,500 years ago, in the shadows of the snow-covered Himalayan Mountains, Siddhartha Gautama, the future Buddha was born.
We celebrate our ancestors in monthly memorial services, and hold a series of special services throughout the year. Check the calendar for upcoming services.
If you have attended an event and would like to support us with a monetary donation, there are many ways to give.
If you like attending any of our Special Events or if you want to support the continued success of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism in Kelowna or Canada or if you want to just support our Temple, please consider becoming a Member.
Serving the wider community
Our resident minister serves all the communities of the British Columbia interior, such as New Denver, Midway, Greenwood, and more.
Regular services are held monthly at the Kamloops and Vernon temples.
