What we're about

The Zen Center is closed to the public. We now offer online meditation, online chanting and online kong an interviews. Follow the link and click on the blue box "Join Here".

We practice Zen to understand ourselves and help others. We all have questions about this life. That is why we practice. “What is mind?” “What is consciousness?” “What is life and death?” If you want to understand the realm of buddhas, first you must keep a mind that is clear like space. That is already every buddha’s mind. Keeping your mind clear like space means your mind is clear like a mirror: The name we sometimes give to this is reflect mind. You just reflect the universe exactly as it is. That is already truth.
