Come As You Are…


Join us for our Sunday morning gatherings  open to everyone from 10 – 11:30 AM

The Salt Lake Buddhist Fellowship is a lay-led, all-inclusive, non-discriminating trans-sectarian Sangha influenced by the Pure Land Buddhist tradition and the teachings of Gyomay and  Koyo Kubose. Our organization focuses on the universal teachings of Gautama Buddha, the historical Buddha. Our approach follows the teachings of the Way of Oneness, a unique form of American Buddhism developed by Venerable Rev. Gyomay Kubose based on the Shin-Zen tenets and teachings of Japanese Mahayana Buddhism. At the same time, we are administrative, financially and politically independent and not part of any formal organizational hierarchy, but our spiritual leader is a Sensei with the Bright Dawn Center for Oneness Buddhism.

Our Practice Leader is Rev. Christopher “Kakuyo” Ross-Leibow.  We have an open and engaged group with all levels of experience. We like to say in our tradition, “come as you are…” there is no dress code, and nothing you need to do but attend. The fellowship is a great place to learn about Buddhism, mindfulness and the Way of Oneness.

Join us as we deeply explore ourselves and the Way of Oneness and to come to entrusting in the Oneness of Reality, personified as Amida Buddha. To deepen our appreciation, knowledge, and experience of the Mahayana Buddhist teachings and practices, we use readings from various Buddhist books and our rich personal experiences. We recognize the importance of practice. At the beginning of our gatherings, we discuss our awareness practices from meditation to acts of compassion towards others and ourselves. We also recite inspirational prayers, practice zazen (quiet sitting)  and conduct sacred chants using, Om Namu Amitabhaya  Even though our studies inspired by the Pure Land tradition we are trans-sectarian and learn from the whole tradition of Buddhist teachings and practices; we are open to the entirety of world spirituality. Our gatherings include quiet sitting and voice meditation, plenty of discussion, and fellowship. We would love for you to join us in practice.
