Buddhism in the Heart of Grand Rapids
The Grand Rapids Buddhist Temple (GRBT) is an American temple. We emphasize the interdependence and interbeing of all things, the emptiness of all phenomena, the inherent Buddha nature in all beings, and the bodhisattva aspiration. Additionally, we stress inclusiveness and a living experience of the buddhadharma. We strive to bring the buddhadharma to the everyday lives of the Sangha. Our Sangha is primarily made up of folks who have full time jobs and families so we emphasize practical applications of the Buddha’s teaching.
We offer a full array of basic and advanced classes, regular meditation periods, and special services. We also are a social group and meet frequently as a community for potlucks and discussions. We strive to have a warm and welcoming temple where everyone is welcome regardless of spiritual tradition or life style choice. Children are always welcome to our services and we provide children’s activities during our Sunday services September through May.
