Oakland Buddhist Women's Association (OBWA)

The OBWA is the temple's primary service group and the heart of our Sangha. The women of the OBWA regularly prepare food for church events and services, teach younger members the fine art of Japanese food preparation, and actively serve our local community. This strong nucleus of women has initiated and coordinated many social, cultural, and fundraising activities throughout BCO history, and has thus, sustained the vitality of the church.

As mothers and grandmothers, they have encouraged and helped their children and families to understand the importance of the Dharma, while making religious programs and opportunities available to awaken their own personal and spiritual well-being.
