Rissho Kosei-kai is a Buddhist organization originally founded in Japan in 1938. We started sharing the teachings of Buddhism in the United States 50 years ago and we now have dharma centers in many U.S. locations, and an online sangha gathering for those who do not live close to one of our centers.
Located in Los Angeles, Rissho Kosei-kai International of North America, is the Rissho Kosei-kai's regional center for North America, established for sharing the Buddha Dharma with a special focus on the Lotus Sutra (Ekayana Buddhism) for all practitioners living in the United States and Canada. Through the study and practice of these teachings, we are able to recognize the buddha-nature in ourselves and others.
Open Wednesday - Monday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (closed Tuesdays). We offer a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with:
- A library of books from all Buddhist traditions that are available for check-out
- DVDs on a variety of subjects
- Books on Buddhism for sale
- Online Classes on Buddhism
