About US

Buddhism is part of our life…

Hsi Fang Temple (a.k.a. San Diego Buddhist Association) is a Buddhist Temple founded in 1989, with our headquarter, Fo Guang Shan, is based in Koahsiung, Southern Taiwan.

We are from the Chinese Mahayana Tradition, 49th generation of Linji lineage (one of the Chan Meditation Schools).

Our mission is serving and sharing the Buddha’s Teachings through community services, education, philanthropy and group cultivations.

We emphasize in the daily applications of the Dharma, also known as Humanistic Buddhism.

We sponsor events like meditation retreats, Buddhist lectures, educational programs and young adults programs.

We donate Buddhism books to local universities and libraries, visiting children and senior homes.

The temple also provides a bridge of cultural exchange between the East and the West.

We are here to serve and help

Hsi Fang Temple serves the communities in many various ways, from education, arts & cultural activities, community services, philanthophy, retreats, prayer services, to people of all walks of lives, from baby to seniors.
