Visit our center Sunday, August 4th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm for a special Pet Blessing with a Buddha icon. All shapes and sizes of animals are welcome. Our animal friends benefit from your kindness and special care for the spiritual side of life. Everybody can use a blessing!
Please keep everyone safe - leashes, or cages, are useful as there are often different types of animals and there could be fights or disappearances! Large animals in the parking lot.
Temple tours will be available from members and staff.
All questions welcome!

The Eikyoji Institute of America (originally located at 548 California Avenue) was established as a non-profit organization in 1989 by Alicia O. Matsunaga and Daigan L. Matsunaga with the wishes and dreams of Americans who wanted to see Buddhism take root in Nevada and offer the wisdom and practices of Buddhism to further benefit the country.
They established Reno Buddhist Church as a Sangha of non-denominational Buddhists (although affiliated with Jodo Shinshu Pure Land denomination of Japanese Buddhism). In 1993, the EIA purchased the RBC Plumas St. property from the Lighthouse of God Church on November 29, 1993. The adjacent Shasta House was also purchased at this time along with the parking lot on the south side of Taylor St.
The RBC congregation (or Sangha) is made up of folks from all walks of American life.
We are American Buddhists.
