Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple

Facebook page for the Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple, a Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Temple. The Seattle Betsuin is a member of the Buddhist Churches of America.

The Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple—also known as the Seattle Buddhist Temple or the The Seattle Buddhist Church—is in the Jodo Shinshu tradition under the mother temple of the Nishi Hongwanji in Japan. We are affiliated with the Buddhist Churches of America (BCA).

[02/18/17]   Reminder: there will be no Sunday service this Sunday (2/19) due to the Northwest District Buddhist Convention. All Sangha members are invited to the Doubletree Suites in Tukwilla for the closing service. Oshoko (incense offering) begins at 9:30, service starts at 9:45.

This Sunday is Nirvana day and pet Memorial service. This is the day the historical Buddha, Shakyamuni, passed away. During his passing, followers and animals gathered in the Forrest, in gratitude for the Buddhas teachings.

Buddhist Churches of America

Posted to the BCA website (http://buddhistchurchesofamerica.org/):

The Executive Order signed by President Trump on January 27, 2017 has been causing serious concerns and suffering for many people, especially Muslims and immigrants. It has brought back memories of the unlawful mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II.

Even if the intent of the Executive Order is to protect our citizens from terrorist attacks, we strongly oppose any actions that lead to discrimination against certain groups just because of their ethnicity or faith.

We should remind ourselves that all people deserve to be respected and treated equally under the law. Each faith group should encourage and promote peace and harmony based on its beliefs and principles, and help create a better nation that we can be proud of.
