About request an edit to this page

This beautiful Center houses the BCA Center for Buddhist Education, the Insti­tute of Buddhist Studies, and a Buddhist Bookstore. Additionally, there are offices of the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha and Ryu­koku University whose headquarters and main campus are located in Kyoto, Japan, respectively. 

Each of these entities, while developing and pursuing their own individual programs, will also work together towards a common goal of bringing Jodo Shinshu Shin Buddhism to the forefront of American society.


The BCA Bookstore in Berkeley sells Buddhist merchandise, implements, a large selection of high-quality Japanese incense, books, scrolls, meditation cushions, and many other goods. 

We’re primarily a Shin Buddhist bookstore, but we feature the largest selection of Buddhist books not readily found in any other store. 

Books, CDs, Audios, DVDs, by well-known teachers/scholars/authors such as Pema Chodron, Dr. Reggie Ray, John Daido Loori, Jeffrey Hopkins, and many, many others are all part of our inventory.
