Description

The Pittsburgh Buddhist Center (PBC) was established on September 06, 2006 to serve the needs of the Buddhists and friends of Buddhism in and around Pittsburgh.

This is the first Theravada Temple established in western Pennsylvania. Theravada (literally, "the teaching of the elders", or "the ancient teaching") is the oldest surviving Buddhist school. It is relatively conservative, and generally closest to early Buddhism, and for many centuries has been the predominant religion of Sri Lanka (about 70% of the population) and most of continental Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Thailand).

PBC conducts meditation sessions, Dhamma discussions and children's Buddhism classes.
