While Hokoji is grounded in authentic practice, the temple walls are
expansive enough to encompass a breadth of conditions,
and glimmering, they allow everyone to step through.

Over the years, Hokoji has accumulated nearly 300 books related to spirituality and spiritual practice and philosophy. We invite you to take a look through and borrow from our informal library in the Community House. A sign-out sheet is located near the bookshelf. We invite you to take out and return books on your own. The Community House is open during planned events or by appointment.

Topics in the Hokoji collection of books include:
India (Historical)
Sutras
Tibetan Buddhism
Chinese Buddhism
Japanese Buddhism
Contemporary Writings
Islam
Judaism
Christianity
Various Religions
Art & Poetry
Food/Cooking/Tea
Psychology, Philosophy, Politics, Education
Mysticism

Hokoji was founded and survives on generosity. Through the spiritual, material, and monetary contributions of those too many to mention here, the temple community quietly grows and nourishes. Your dana (donations) and volunteering time are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
