The Monterey Peninsula Buddhist Temple Book Club was established after an informal discussion of books and their relation to Buddhism and Jodoshinshu in particular. A few members thought it would be fun and interesting to read books and share thoughts about how they feel books relate to the Buddha Dharma. From that initial discussion the Book Club was established.

Our goal is to find books from all genres and find within them the teachings of the Buddha. Our mission is to share our enthusiasm and love for reading and our insight into the books we have chosen.

Everyone is welcome to join our club and bring suggestions for future readings. We generally meet once a month on the 2nd Thursday of each month. This schedule may vary so please refer to the temple calendar on the website montereybuddhist.org.
