The Center for Buddhist Education was first inspired by Shinran Shonin's legacy. The mission of the Buddhist Churches of America - Center for Buddhist Education (CBE) is to provide diverse learning opportunities to deepen the understanding and appreciation of Buddha's wisdom and compassion among Sangha leaders and the broader community.
As an educational arm of the Buddhist Churches of America (BCA), CBE offers programs to support the continuing education of BCA ministers, training of ministers' assistants, temple leaders, dharma school teachers, youth groups, affiliated organizations and others interested in exploring Jodo Shinshu Buddhism in America.
Programs are developed in partnership with many entities within and beyond the BCA organization, including the Office of the Bishop, local BCA temples, and the Institute of Buddhist Studies.
We encourage everyone to learn more by visitng the CBE website.
