READ THE LATEST ON OUR PLANS TO REOPEN 

The Temple received an email from the Mayor's office with regards to their exploration of reopening "Places of Worship". They were reaching out to many religious facilities in San Diego and putting together a plan to open at some time in the future. I was quite honored and humbled that we were on the list of places to contact, that says a lot about the community we have built the past fourteen years. Click here to read more...

YEAR-END FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

Here we sit in crazy times, yet one thing that is constant is the heart of this community. I am reaching out and asking for donations so we can secure much-needed funds as we close out the year. At the end of each year we always look to you the community to make donations. This year is a bit different as you can imagine, since no one has been inside the physical Temple in seven months. Please click here to learn more...

THE DHARMA BUM TEMPLE WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Dharma Bum Temple and Buddha for You will be closed until further notice. We believe this is the wisest and most compassionate response as the world deals with the Coronavirus. There will be no classes or programs held and the Temple will not be open to visit during the day.  It is our sincere wish that all are free from suffering and we want to minimize any potential risk of adding to the suffering. Thank you for all the love and support during this difficult time! 

FREE ONLINE MEDITATION VIA OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND ZOOM

We will continue to stream meditation and Dharma Talks with Q&A on our YouTube channel Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7pm and Saturday at 11am. The rest of our classes are being held via Zoom. Please click here to subscribe to our YouTube Channel and be notified when we hold online classes! Please click here to view our complete online schedule!

WELCOME

The Dharma Bum Temple is a home for the study and practice of Buddhism, yet we do not advocate one particular school of Buddhism. Our community is simply a bridge for people to learn how to make change within their own life and be of benefit to others.

The Dharma Bums focus on The Four Noble Truths, Eightfold Path and Six Paramitas. To speak about Buddhism is not enough, one must practice these basic Buddhist principles. Through diligent practice one will begin to realize the cause of their suffering, thus moving beyond suffering for the benefit of all beings. When one enters the stream of Buddhism it can be confusing, so we help make it easier to understand.

The Dharma Bum Temple offers Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation Services, Dharma Talks, Homeless Outreach, Prison Outreach, Dharma Bum Kids, Dharma Bum Teens, Dharma Bum Life Program, Visiting Monks, Nuns & Buddhist Scholars, Silent Retreats, Morning Meditation Services, Meditation and Intro to Buddhism Classes in Spanish, Buddhist Recovery Program for Overcoming Addictions, Co-Ed Buddhist Fraternity, College Meditation Groups and More - ALL FOR FREE! 

The Dharma Bums are disciples of the Buddha, practitioners of the Dharma and caretakers of the Sangha.
