Dress code is basically work or school attire but common sense prevails. The only item we ask that you do not wear inside Myosenji Temple is head coverings (hats, scarfs, etc.). If you are interested to learn why we don’t cover our heads, that would make a great question to ask our Chief Priest when you visit.
Since we live in the United States, you will not be asked to take off your shoes.
Greeting the Buddhist Priests
Our Chief Priest and Assistant Priest would like to meet you and answer any of your questions about Buddhism. During our Introduction meetings, there is time allocated at the end of the meetings where you can meet our Chief Priest and introduce yourself. They are also available to speak with you after ceremonies and others times during the week. Please check our Temple activity calendar or contact the Temple directly to visit.
