The first Theravada Buddhist temple in western Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh Buddhist Center (PBC) was established on Sept. 6, 2006 to serve the needs of Buddhists and friends of Buddhism in the greater Pittsburgh region.
PBC conducts meditation sessions, religious discussions, Buddhism and language classes for children, and a monthly program that includes a lecture by a Buddhist scholar at PBC.

All events, unless otherwise noted, are free to the public. Children are welcome.
