Welcome to the Hamilton Buddhist Temple Website!




This website provides information to our current members and potential new members alike.  It contains our schedule of services and events and descriptions of  our practices.  It provides resources and links for supporting your practice with us.


Good news!


To ensure the safety of attendees and their loved ones, the Hamilton Buddhist Temple is conducting temple services virtually on Zoom. 


Our next temple service date is:

  • Sunday, April 11 at 1 p.m. (Hanamatsuri and April Shotsuki memorial)

New people are always welcomed. If you are interested in attending a virtual service, simply email us at hamiltonbuddhisttemple@gmail.com.


We welcome back Yoshimichi Ouchi Sensei, from the Toronto Buddhist Church (TBC), who leads our services. Many thanks to Jeff Wilson Sensei, who led services when Yoshi Sensei was unavailable, and to the TBC, for kindly sharing their ministers time with us.


If you would like to support the Temple, online donations may be done via CanadaHelps!

Other great online live and recorded resources include:

  • Mindfulness  Meditation (live!)

  • Jodo Shinshu Rituals – Register here for the next session on Sunday, May 16 at 7pm! The first workshop (on Gassho and Oshoko) was very interesting and well received. The next session, on Traditional Naijin (Alter) arrangements, will also be terrific.
