The Dharma Bum Temple is a home for the study and practice of Buddhism in America. We do not advocate one particular school of Buddhism. We are simply a bridge for Western people to enter into a Buddhist practice. When one enters the stream of Buddhism, it can be confusing; so we help make it simple.

Dharma Bums focus on the Four Noble Truths, the 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 and into Nirvana.

Dharma Bums are Disciples of the Buddha

Practitioners of the Dharma

Caretakers of the Sangha
