Salt Lake Buddhist Fellowship
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 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. Still, 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. 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.
