Jung Myung Sa
Buddhist Temple








I take refuge in the Buddha.
I take refuge in the Dhamma.
I take refuge in the Sangha.


Welcome to Jung Myung Sa Buddhist Temple

Just as a mother would protect her son, 
her only son, with her own life, 
so one should develop toward all beings 
a state of mind without boundaries.

Our Story

Korean Buddhism in New York

We would like to share our knowledge and wisdom that has been nourished by Korean Buddhism of a long and rich history.

Since 1994
Jung Myung Sa is a Buddhist Temple affiliated to Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. Being located in Flushing, Queens, New York, it was founded by Ven. Gilsang for Korean immigrant Buddhists and other people living in New York.

Relocation 1997
Later, in order to better facilitate our practice, Jung Myung Sa was moved to the current location with the help of Master Chung-hwa sumin, who wrote the calligraphy of  the temple signboard, Jung Myung Sa (淨命寺).

Reopening 2008

In completing Ven. Gilsang’s 1000 days retreat and prayer, Jung Myung Sa was reopened with the new three stories modern building that was possible through helps and supports of Korean Buddhist community.

Until now, we have mainly focused on  Korean Buddhist community. In addition to this, we are currently looking forward to having our English services for American people and other immigrations.
