Thai Temples In America: Wat Thai In The USA

Please Share: Every Click Helps!

This is a list of Thai Temples throughout the USA, and includes the two major Thai Buddhist sects, known as Nikaya. We try to update this list of temples as often as we can, so if you have any updates to any Wat Thai, then please CONTACT US to let us know.

The terms “Maha Nikaya” and “Dhamayutti Nikaya” refer to the two principal sects of modern Thai Buddhism. To generalize, the Dahmayutti Nikaya sect of Theravada Buddhism is more strict than the Maha Nikaya sect. The temples may have classes in the Thai language and arts, or may have different weekly activities and holiday celebrations, available to the public, such as pouring water over the Buddha sculptures during Songkarn. On the other hand, some temples may be rather strictly focused on meditation and Dharma instruction. It is best to either visit the temple’s Web site, e-mail or call ahead to find out whether visitors are welcome. Temples that are in urban locations will often have many services open to the public, while Wats in more remote areas will be similar to the Thai Forest Tradition temples and have fewer public activities.

By
including a Dhamma center or group in these listings we are in no way
endorsing their teachers, teachings, policies, politics, or activities.
They are included here simply because I think they may be useful starting
points in your quest for good teachings from the Theravada traditions.
The final judgment is yours alone.
