On Sunday, June 25th, over 120 temple members expressed their support and Pride in the temple’s commitment to inclusivity in sharing Amida Buddha’s boundless wisdom and compassion, treating all with respect and dignity by marching in the Seattle Pride Parade.
Same sex marriage has been supported for over 40 years in our American Buddhist community.
Earlier this year both resident and guest ministers have delivered Sunday Dharma Talks about inclusivity and not being judgmental being core Buddhist teachings. This fall the temple is proud to announce that we will co-host with the Center for Buddhist Education a seminar at our temple on the LGBTQ+ Community and Shin Buddhism. More information will be posted shortly.
