A Message from the Temple Priests Rev. Jay Rinsen Weik & Rev. Karen Do-on Weik

The Temple is situated in the Holland/Springfield area of greater Toledo and brings together people interested in Buddhist practice from all around the greater NW ohio area and beyond. You are always welcome to join in for our family oriented Sunday Morning Service, the Wednesday Evening Service or any of the many classes and workshops that happen here.

Our growing community is made up of a diverse group of people who have perhaps read books about Zen and Buddhist philosophy or tried meditation on their own and then decided to visit and taste for themselves what the cookbook describes. Regular members of the community include area college students and professors, engineers, tradespeople, physicians, homemakers, entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, computer geeks, martial artists, yoga practitioners, children and retired folks.

We sincerely hope you will enjoy exploring this website, and find in it a compelling invitation to come and explore this deep Wisdom Tradition for yourself!

- Rev. Rinsen and Rev. Do-on
