Welcome to the Las Vegas Buddhist Sangha!
We are a small but growing congregation of people who feel that Buddhism provides a foundation on which to build our lives, freeing us from stress and negativity. Rather than doing things with the idea of being “worthy” of going to a better place after death, we prefer to develop our Wisdom and Compassion now, which will help us to cope with daily life, and to enable us to improve our interactions with the people around us. Our lives are guided by the Eight Fold Path (Right View, Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Conduct, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, and Right Meditation).
Our services are held at 10:00 A.M. on the second Sunday of each month (except August), at 4110 N. Martin Luther King Blvd., NV 89032 (click on Contact Us for map). We have a visiting minister sent to us and arranged by the BCA (Buddhist Churches of America). Our new home was made possible by some of our tenacious and prudent Sangha members, who started our Sangha almost 29 years ago. Our Sangha has come a long way, starting from a garage in a members home, and various buildings that we have rented, to our new home. The dress is casual and the atmosphere is warm and family friendly.
WE HAD OUR FIRST SERVICE IN OUR NEW BUILDING!
On Sunday, May 11, 2014, the Las Vegas Buddhist Sangha had a dedication service in our new building. Buddhist Churches of America Bishop Kodo Umezu was the keynote speaker. He was assisted by Reverend Marvin Harada of the Orange County Buddhist Church.
A slide show of the process of purchasing and constructing the building is now posted on our website. Please click here to see it.
We look forward to our official grand opening this fall as a new beginning for a vibrant and growing Las Vegas Buddhist Sangha!
