The need for a Buddhist Vihara in Staten Island for the benefit of the large number of Sri Lankan and other Buddhist residents of the island and its vicinity was felt several years ago. However, until recently, the religious and spiritual needs of the Sri Lankan and other Buddhists were fulfilled by the New York Buddhist Vihara in Queens, New York. On account of the keen interest, enormous effort and the kind generosity of a large number of Buddhists, it was possible to inaugurate a Buddhist Vihara in Staten Island on July 11th, 1999. Already a large number of Buddhists and their families visit the temple on a regular basis.
