Adult Buddhist Association

The purpose of the Orange County Adult Buddhist Association is to continue the propagation of the Buddha-Dharma and to promote the general activities and welfare of the Orange County Buddhist Church.

All adult members of OCBC (ages 21 to 121) are welcome to participate, and our annual dues of $10.00 per person makes it possible for everyone to join.

Every year we have an Installation Dinner where the new officers are installed and the new members are introduced. Much of the evening is spent in revelry, eating, and being with great people.

We provide Gotanye and Fall Ohigan luncheons.  ABA also participates in the Hanamatsuri and Obon Festivals by preparing chicken teriyaki plates and chicken bowls. We also cook lunch, one day each weekend of the festivals, for all the people from different organizations working early in the day. Many of our members also belong to other organizations, so a lot of our members are jumping from one work area to another.

On designated Sundays of the month, two of our members volunteer to set up the Hospitality table (beverages and other refreshments) for our sangha and the guests who visit OCBC.

Each year we also have at least one other activity for the purpose of getting together for fun, enjoyment, relaxation, escape, camaraderie, mental/physical/spiritual lift. Be it a ball game, seminar, Las Vegas trip, dance lessons, theatre party, crafts and more.

Being a member of ABA is a way to support OCBC, make a contribution, have fun, and be with wonderful people all at once.
