Welcome!

BTC is a diverse Buddhist temple in the historic Uptown neighborhood of Chicago.  Visit us on Sundays at 11 am for weekly English service (guide for newcomers here), explore education classes, attend Thursday & Sunday meditation, and drop in on our many cultural classes and events. Look above for links to more information about us and our many offerings. Check the Calendar for regularly scheduled classes and events and look on the right side of the page for our Facebook page and Announcements. Everyone is welcome here. See you soon. Directions and info on parking are at the bottom of the page.

Update: BTC is honored to once again participate in the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago event on October 14 (9 am to 5 pm) and October 15 (after service, 1 pm to 5 pm). If you are a temple member, please sign up to be a docent, and if you are a visitor, come by and learn about the building and the temple’s  fascinating history. More info here.
