This Buddhist temple and meditation center was founded in Spartanburg in 2010 by Cambodian-American Buddhists. The center incorporates Theravada Buddhist traditions, which focus on experiences and thoughtful analysis rather than pure faith. It is the oldest form of Buddhism practiced today and teaches the Four Noble Truths: the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of the end of suffering, and truth of the path that ends suffering. Daily chanting and meditation take place each day at 5 AM and 8 PM. The center also teaches lessons about Southeast Asian culture and hosts discussions on Thursdays at 6 PM.

I am attending a class on world religion and the professor would like for me to interview someone of another religion other than my own. This is a learning experience for me to gain knowledge of other religions. If someone would please contact me at your earliest convenience I would appreciate it. My cell number is 864-590-9553. I tried to call the number on the web page and it says no voicemail is setup up so I am trying this. Thanks for any help you can provide.
Hey Todd, that sounds like a very interesting research project! We unfortunately do not have direct access to them either but the phone number is 864-308-1138. We hope that this was helpful!

Hello, I have recently become interested in buddhism, I was wondering if you would accept practicing Mahayana’s at your temple?
