For many members, young and old, the ministers' Dharma message at the regular Sunday service affords the primary opportunity to listen to the Teachings. During the major Buddhist holidays special services are held with guest ministers invited to address the Sangha, in English and Japanese. The monthly evening memorial services provide additional opportunities to listen to the Dharma while paying respects to loved ones who have passed on.

The Meditation service consists of sitting meditation, walking meditation, sutra chanting, and a short Dharma message. The meditation service begins promptly so please arrive early so that you do not disturb the session once it begins. Wear comfortable loose clothing. You may sit on the floor on a meditation cushion, or you may sit in a chair. Previous experience in meditation is not required.
