Garden Buddha

Pine Mountain Temple is a small Zen Buddhist temple and is the residence of rev. Seikai and rev. Phoebe.

Sunday: 11 am – 1 pm Chanting, Meditation, Walking Meditation and Dharma Talk.

During the month of January we only hold meditation meetings on Sundays. Please feel free to visit by appointment for meditation instruction, to do a private sitting, talk to the monks or lend a helping hand.

In the traditional Buddhist practice of Dana we set no fixed fee for any of our offerings, and ask that you please support us by making a donation based on what you can afford. Clicking the donation button will open Paypal for you.

Please continue to take good care of yourselves,  thank you for keeping the temple in mind.

On Sustaining the Temple: The Practice of Dana 

The first sign of enlightenment is generosity, the giving and receiving of ourselves and whatever we have to share.  Temples in Buddhism are the result of the coming together of monks and lay practitioners who contribute materially and spiritually to create and maintain a place of peace, open to all who are in need.

Pine Mountain Temple has thrived for many years in the mountains and we hope to continue now as a city temple with your support, be it spiritually in your meditation, or practically through your donations and help with cleaning and food offerings.

Donations can be made in cash, as a check or through PayPal on our website, and are tax deductible. 

Long term support of the temple can also take the form of a legacy or bequest.

There is still a lot to do while we are settling into our new place; please contact the temple if you have extra time to help with any kind of work: cleaning, gardening, shopping or cooking for monks.
