• In order to maintain the health and safety of the general public, Fo Guang Shan St. Louis Buddhist Center will disinfect the temple with alcohol-base disinfectant and/or bleach after each activity.
• We ask that our devotees and visitors thoroughly wash hands during visit to the temple. Hand-sanitizer is available at the entrance of the temple. Please be sure to use when arriving and departing our temple. Taking care of yourself is the best way of helping others.

In response to the New Coronavirus(COVID-19) Outbreak, Fo Guang Shan has begun reciting the Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra to pray for the community in heeding to Buddhism’s compassionate call.
Our thoughts of kindness may purify the world and transform society. As of today until 20th February 2020, we invite all to answer the call and pray that the epidemic be ended under the blessings of the Buddha.
As of today until 20th February 2020
Fo Guang Shan Saint Louis Buddhist Center is one of over 200 branch temples of the Fo Guang Shan International Buddhist Order founded by Venerable Master Hsing Yun.
The order’s objectives are to promote Humanistic Buddhism which embraces all traditions and schools, and to bring forth faith, joy, hope, and service for all. We hope to establish a Pure Land on earth and integrate the Buddha’s teachings of kindness, compassion, joyfulness, and equanimity into our daily lives.
Consistent with the Order’s objectives, the Center was established in 1999 to serve as a spiritual and cultural center for anyone interested in learning about the diverse cultures of Buddhism and Chinese traditions. Activities and services have been conducted to uphold the four main principles of the Order:
10:00-10:30 AM guided meditation
10:40-11:30 AM Buddhist class and discussion
