Our Temple is committed to disseminate Buddhist teachings in the region and to provide emotional or spiritual help to people of any faith.
Our primary goal is to be a center for inner peace for all Buddhists and non-Buddhists in the Great Lakes area to practice the teachings of the Buddha in their own way.
Our activities include offering Buddhist teachings for children and adults, meditation guidence for adults, organizing volunteer activities for youth, and conducting religious ceremonies.
