About Us

The Salt Lake Buddhist Fellowship is made up of folks from all walks of American life. We are an American Buddhist Sangha. Our 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 Practice Leader is Rev. Christopher “Kakuyo” Ross-Leibow. We have an open and engaged group with all levels of experience. In our tradition, we like to say, “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.

As a community together we explore ourselves and the Way of Oneness. Our aspiration is 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 “Sangha as Practice” and that it takes a sangha to wake the Buddha inside. .

Our community’s tradition is inspired by the Shin / Pure Land / Zen tradition, and yet we are not formally any of them. Our sangha is 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 discussions, and fellowship. We would love for you to join us in practice.
