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.
