- Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien

Welcome to Awake World!

Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien, Awakened teacher and founder of Universal Door Meditation Center, has been helping people all over the world to realize the Wisdom and Compassion of AWAKE that is already within each and every one of us. Since 2003, Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien has been guiding people of all backgrounds, religions, cultures, and ages, to return to the original true state of mind that is completely free of ego and suffering.

Zen Master's mind-opening teachings and interactive guidance are very dynamic, spontaneous, and lively, easily engaging listeners, no matter their level of practice. Her Dharma teachings, whether short or long, are always fresh, simple, and practical, and penetrate directly to the heart, helping people to break through, believe, and realize that they have the capacity to Wake Up from illusion.

Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien was born with a deep question. From early childhood, she had doubts about the constant changes in life and the suffering of birth and death. And at the same time, she also knew that there is a world where there is no suffering, no birth and death, only Awakened happiness and full liberation. However, she did not know how to go back and live in that world. Her persistent questions about life were the powerful motivation to help her constantly seek answers. She spent many years studying and applying countless practice methods and searching for Awake teachers, experiencing many hardships, with no regard for her life. Finally, at the age of 30, hitting rock bottom in her inner search for True Self, like an explosion, the system of illusions shattered in her, Awake appeared, and at that moment she Awakened and has been living in Awake World every moment since then!

At the moment she Awakened, Zen Master saw that everyone has the capacity to Wake Up, but we don't know because we believe in ourselves so much and are addicted to our ego. Lost in that, we keep spinning in the darkness of ignorance, we cannot see the truth, the nature of it, and therefore we do not know how to return to Awake Mind. Filled with infinite Wisdom and unlimited Compassion, Zen Master made “the Great Vow” to step into this world to help all beings discover, return, and become one with the Awake Mind within themselves, to break the cycle of birth and death.

When the Awake mind is turned ON, we step into a world of purity, clarity, and total freedom with unbounded love for all. A world free of stress, anxiety, confusion, judging, comparing, complaining…anywhere, anytime, ALWAYS!

Would you like to blossom the Awake seed within yourself? Then, bring your family and friends, and join us for the mind-opening talks by Awakened Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien every Sunday from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, followed by the Awake Tour, a guided presentation to know what is Awake, and what is Awake World.

(The talks and tour are offered at no cost, donations are welcome.)

See you in Awake World!
