Story

The Gardena Buddhist Church was established in 1926 by the Japanese immigrants of the Gardena Valley in Southern California.

Buddhism readily adapts itself to a new land, blending in some of the native cultures and customs into the traditional Buddhist teachings. Buddhism in America is no exception: although of Japanese origin and tradition, we have blended American culture and customs into our services and have created a uniquely American Buddhism of Japanese origin

“Pass It Forward”  embodies the act of expressing kindness which benefits others going forward.  In the Dharma message by Rev Iwohara, he relates “Pass It Forward” to the Issei and Nisei whom built our temple for all of us with no expectations of appreciation or repayment. Accordingly, funds raised during PIF will always go towards activities or improvements to the temple which will benefit the Sangha today and going forward. 

We at Gardena Buddhist Church are fortunate to have such wonderful temple and Sangha. The closure due to COVID-19 has reminded us of this. The temple closure and cancellation of our major fundraisers have caused a significant impact on our Finances. Please help us to continue the legacy we have benefitted from by participating in the PIF 2020 Bento Sale.
