About Wallowa Buddhist Temple
The Wallowa Buddhist Temple follows the Serene Reflection Meditation (Soto Zen) tradition of Buddhism. It is affiliated with the
Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, an international Buddhist Order whose North American headquarters are at Shasta Abbey in Mt. Shasta, California.
The Wallowa Buddhist Temple, with its two resident monastics, serves as a small contemplative Buddhist temple both for those in the area who are interested in Buddhist meditation and practice, and for monks and members of the lay congregation of our Order who wish to come for individual spiritual retreats.
The Wallowa Buddhist Temple depends entirely upon donations for its continued existence. All of its services and activities are offered without charge.
