Temple Etiquette

  • Please be sure that your phone is turned off, or set to silent for the duration of the service.
  • Please aim to arrive 5-10 minutes early to allow time to calm your mind and relax your body before service begins. Arriving late disturbs the practice of your dharma friends.
  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting and modest clothing. Please avoid wearing sleeveless or low-cut tops. Tight trousers can restrict the blood-flow as you sit in a cross-legged position, causing pain during meditation.
  • Food and beverage are not allowed in the hall, if you must bring water, please choose a non-glass container with a lid.
  • Refrain from using perfumes, colognes or scented toiletries.
  • When entering and exiting the hall, it is customary to bow facing the alter.
  • This temple is supported by the generous donations of people like you. All donations are welcome. If you would like to volunteer, please let us know.

Thank you for being respectful and polite.
