Long Beach Buddhist Church
Long Beach Buddhist Church (LBBC), founded in 1957, is dedicated to sharing the teachings of the Buddha and serving as a positive presence in our local community. The purpose of LBBC is to maintain a non-sectarian Buddhist temple that promotes the general welfare of our Sangha (community).
In 1951, our Founder, Reverend Kosai Osada (1911-1989) held his first services at the Long Beach Japanese Community Center. In 1957, groundbreaking began at its present location in Long Beach at 2360 Santa Fe Ave. Reverend Osada’s aspiration was to return to the original teachings of Buddhism in its purest form and the temple has been following this philosophy ever since.
We strive to honor and continue the traditions of our founding members, as we aim to provide services and activities to ensure that Buddhism remains a way of life.
