An American Flowering of Everyday Buddhism with Roots in Japan

The Buddhist Temple of San Diego (BTSD) represents Shin Buddhism, the Jodo Shinshu sect of the Pure Land School ,of the Mahayana branch of Buddhist tradition. As such our temple is a member of the Buddhist Churches of America, established in 1899, and is affiliated with the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha in Kyoto, Japan. 

Since 1926 BTSD has served as both a spiritual and cultural resource in San Diego.
