Thought for the Moment
"Kneeling down before the Buddha and chanting the sutra mornings and evenings allows us to understand the sacred heart of the Buddha through physical action."
- Founder Nikkyo Niwano
Located in Clearwater, Florida, Rissho Kosei-kai of Tampa Bay is an engaged Buddhist center, combining traditional Buddhist teachings with modern everyday application, to help bring peace and harmony to the family and society. Through these teachings, we are able to recognize the buddha-nature in ourselves and others. We support each other and our community in the development of awareness, compassion and peace.
The path of Buddhism is inclusive and available to all. We welcome you to join us in our sangha!! Our Sunday Service starts at 6:00 p.m.
