Welcome to the Oxnard Buddhist Temple (OBT) Website!




Akemashite Omedetto Gozaimasu!  First of all I would like the thank Rev Watanabe, Yasuko Kujiraoka, the Board of Directors and the entire Sangha for their selfless cooperation and support of this temple.  This includes BCA, ministers and laypersons who have directly or indirectly supported us, thank you.  As you know this past year had its unique challenges but the Sangha bravely came together to meet it head on.  As we embark on a new year I request your continued spirited support and will do what I can to help communicate the message of the Buddha.  As we frequently recite during Sunday service under ‘Shin Buddhist Life Principles’, my goal for the New Year is to “Share the True Dharma with All.”   Former Monshu Koshin Ohtani, in his book ‘The Buddha’s Wish for the World,’ cites: “Your life is a gift wished into existence.”   May 2018 bring on a deepening awareness. 

Gassho, 

Elwyn            
                                                                                         
In Gassho, 
ELwyn Kawate  
President 

of the 

OBT Board of Directors
