Welcome to the Oxnard Buddhist Temple (OBT) Website!

Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!  I welcome in 2016 with bright hopes and good wishes for all.  First, I want to extend a heartfelt ‘Thank you’ to Bruce Arikawa for leading the temple these past two years. With the support of the Sangha and other board members, much has been accomplished and I thank you!  I also want to thank Rev. Nori for his religious guidance and fun-loving spirit. I appreciate your insight in expressing gratitude for everyday things. Thank you.

Thanks for joining our celebration at the 2016 Obon Festival.
Good times were had by all. See the evidence in Justin's 

Thanks to all who helped run Obon again this year. You are the reason it was such a great success. See the write up by the Ventura County Star.
