Service Schedule

We represent the Theravada (Hinayana) branch of Buddhism. Our faith has involved into different forms in order to be relevant to the different cultures it has served. Theravada, which literally means 'the Teaching of the Elders', or 'the Ancient Teaching', is the oldest surviving Buddhist school. It is generally closest to early Buddhism. For many centuries Theravada Buddhism has been dominated in Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. It is also practiced by minorities in some parts of Asian countries such as China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia and Bangladesh. Today Theravada Buddhists number over 100 million worldwide and in recent decades Theravada Buddhism has begun to take root in the West.

The Ratanaram Buddhist Temple offers sermon and meditation services, based on Theravada teaching, in English, Lao, Burmese, and Thai. The temple is opened for tours and often hosts lectures on Buddhism to students in the area. Visitors are always welcomed with appointment. Here is some of our daily services:
