One Dharma. Together.

Welcome to the Buddhist Faith Fellowship of Connecticut! Our community embraces the spirit of One Dharma, blending the timeless wisdom of classic Buddhism with the inspiring teachings of Shin Buddhism. Rooted in the rich 2,400-year-old Pure Land tradition, we offer a space where the treasures of history, art, culture, and spiritual teachings converge, deepening your understanding, faith, and awareness. Since 2001, our mission has been to foster an innovative and practical form of American Buddhism that meets the spiritual, ethical, and psychological needs of today’s world.

By attending our programs, you become part of a compassionate, wholesome, and supportive community dedicated to personal, as well as, collective growth. Our Practice & Talk Meetings provide spiritual refreshment through meditation, sacred chants, and insightful talks, welcoming both first-timers and seasoned practitioners. What’s more, our One Dharma approach offers politics-free Practice & Talk meetings, retreats, and courses that serve as mental and emotional safe refuges away from propaganda and endless distractions focusing solely on spiritual practice, healing, and peace.

We encourage you to explore our web site and take a look at everything we have to offer you, and of course, attend our enriching programs and activities. We are looking forward to seeing you.

In gratitude,

— Founding Teacher Rev. D. Senpai, M.A. & Dharma Teacher Ikuse
