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.


To ensure the safety of attendees and their loved ones, the Hamilton Buddhist Temple is continuing to conduct services virtually on Zoom. No decision has been made when in-person services will resume.

Our next temple service date is:

  • Sunday, February 12 @11 am. 

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


Our services are usually led by Yoshimichi Ouchi Sensei, from the Toronto Buddhist Church (TBC).  We thank the TBC for kindly sharing their ministers time with us.
