Welcome to the virtual site of the Buddhist Churches of America (BCA). Through this site we hope to provide you with information about the BCA, our temples that are found throughout the Continental United States, and Jodo Shinshu Buddhism. Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, the school of Buddhism that provides the religious and spiritual core of our institution, is a teaching that has been propagated for more than 8 centuries and has been able to help give meaning to people’s lives in Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America. The BCA was established to help spread the message of Universal Salvation through the Vow of the Amida Buddha in the Continental United States. We hope that through this site you will be able to participate in the rich resources that the BCA has available, to deepen your appreciation of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, and ultimately to discover the riches that life has to offer all beings.
