Sangha makes Senbei

Our Sangha has a blast getting together to make senbei crackers for our food bazaars! We spend a Saturday rolling, cutting, and frying dough; coating the crackers with sauce and baking them; and bagging it all up for sale. It's such a great time to chat with and get to know other members of the sangha better, have some free lunch, and at the end of the day you can even munch on the reject sebei.

Sangha Movie Nights

Welcome to the Spokane Buddhist Temple!

Established in 1945, the Spokane Buddhist Temple holds weekly services on Sunday mornings, following the tradition of Japanese Shin Buddhism. Our Sangha Services are hosted by Reverend Christine Marr, Sensei Paul Vielle or one of our Minister's Assistants, with help from other members of our sangha. Not having a resident minister of our own, we invite a guest minister to come and speak from time to time. We are an all volunteer temple and welcome your participation in our weekly services and activities.

In addition to holding services, we hold food bazaars in the spring and fall, and an Obon Festival in the summer. Please see our Calendar for more information about these special events.

Our temple has a Japanese heritage, but all services are primarily in English and most of our sangha members are non-Japanese. We welcome all, regardless of belief, heritage, race, gender, sexual orientation, or anything else. Please join us for our next service - or call, email, or connect with us on Facebook !
