The Board of Sacramento Dharma Center is delighted and profoundly grateful to announce, that on October 12th the Center received the City of Sacramento’s Certificate of Occupancy that allows gatherings in excess of fifty (50). Although smaller groups had begun to meet at SDC, now all three Sustaining Sanghas—Sacramento Buddhist Meditation Group (SBMG,) Sacramento Insight Meditation (SIM), and Valley Streams Zen Sangha (VSZS) may hold their regular weekly sittings at the Center, as well as daylong retreats and their full complement of activities. We look forward to experiencing the Center as it manifests a vision of a sanctuary for all who seek wisdom and the end of suffering through the teachings of the Buddha.

We are full of gratitude for the hundreds of people who have contributed time, money, and merit to build this refuge for our Sanghas. Truly, Sacramento Dharma Center comes into being and will continue through dana – the generosity of so many supporters.

We hope to see you at the dedication and celebration, on Sunday, November 6 from 1 til 3. On Sunday, January 29, 2017, SDC will hold a grand opening for the wider community. Watch for details! Please visit the SDC website,, for up to date information.
