Members Only Pre Orders


Due to health code and other restrictions, there are certain parts of OBON at HOME that we have to limit to our dues-paying members. The entire OBON at HOME broadcast and certain merchandise will be available to the general public; however, all food sales and previously subsidized items (such as leftover prizes from previous Obons) need to be limited to our current membership.


If you would like to join us as a member, you may do so as part of 2021 Obon at Home. People of all ages, ethnicities, genders, and races are welcome to join the Mountain View Buddhist Temple Sangha. 

To make membership more accessible, we are offering an INTRODUCTORY HALF-PRICE MEMBERSHIP ($150, good through December 31, 2021). In January 2022, you will be invited to renew at standard 2022 rates. We look forward to continuing to have you become a cherished member of our Sangha with all the benefits that membership can provide.
