BDK America Classes Continues through End of Year

BDK America is grateful to be able to host an expanded offering of cultural and spiritual programs for its facilities in Moraga and Berkeley, California. In this way we help broaden the appreciation of the many forms of Buddhist spirituality and Japanese art and culture. For this ability we offer a special thank you to our talented instructors as noted below, along with our schedule..
