Buddhist Women's Association

BWA Wordle

The Parlier Buddhist Women's Association,
formerly know as the Fujinkai, has been an
integeral part of our church for many years
and has a very large part the success of the
church and Buddhism in America.

The BWA, open to adult women, is
important for the vitality of temple sanghas,
particularly in the preservation of Japanese
and Japanese-American Buddhist traditions,
and oral history.

The Parlier BWA is a part of the Central District regional chapter. In the United States, the umbrella organization of BWA chapters is the Federation of Buddhist Women's Associations (FBWA).

Yearly conferences are held, with the location and sponsorship rotating among the various BCA districts. A worldwide conference of BWA chapters is held every four years.

The BWA has monthly meetings and activities, both religious and social.
