The mission of the Seattle Buddhist Church is “to promote, protect and share the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.” We hope you find what you need here to join or deepen your connection to our religious community known as the Sangha.
Instead of a regular Sunday service July 22, we will hold 4:30 p.m. services, July 21 and 22. These are part of our 86-year-old Bon Odori tradition. After the service, stay for dancing to remember and honor family and friends who have passed.
Mark your calendars for the annual Bon Odori festival, July 21, 22. Join us for traditional Japanese dance, food, drinks, cultural displays, and a beer garden with live music and happy hour. Times are 4-10 p.m., July 21 and 3-8 p.m., July 22.
Since Bon Odori is a Buddhist event, as always, each day's dancing will be preceded by a short Buddhist service. New this year: Buddhism 101, brief lecture on Jodo Shinshu Buddhism right before the services.
Dance practice dates: July 9-12, and 16, 17: 7:30 p.m.
You have multiple ways to get updates. Follow us on instagram: @SeattleBonOdori and check us out on Facebook.
