Lotus Sutra Studies
Thursdays at 7pm. "This is a course study on the Lotus Sutra. Lonni, James, and Frank instruct this course and all members and visitors are encouraged to attend this special weekly study gathering.

Thought for the Moment
"We can, if we look, find buddha-nature in all sorts of situations -- especially in difficult situations where we think there is no hope, no redeeming element, and nothing but darkness on our horizon." ~Gene Reeves, PhD International Advisor to Rissho Kosei-kai
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.
