Featured Koan: The Buddha's Enlightenment

The Buddha looked up and saw the morning star and awakened.
He cried out, “Now, at last, I see that all beings have the nature of the one who comes thus. Only their delusions and attachments keep them from realizing this."

PZI Members: You are Invited! Open Temple through Year’s End

November 22 @ 4:00 am - December 31 @ 7:00 am

Doors are open to ALL PZI Members through December 31st, 2021, for morning meditations in the online Year’s End Open Temple. Check your email for a recurring Zoom link to attend M-W-F morning meditations hosted by PZI leaders and teachers.


In this autumn time of turning in and finding rest, join us as we deepen together and discover the many ways practice can hold and nourish us.

Sitting together reveals the heart of practice and community. This year we entered two month-long training periods which brought us together across continents and time zones to share koans, poetry, and deep silence. We learned just what a powerful thing it is to have that regular meeting place.

In the spirit of thanks to all our members for being part of PZI, we’re lighting the candles of the Open Temple once again beginning Monday, November 22. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until the end of the year our leaders will offer temple bells, koans, and two sitting periods in the online temple.

—PZI Board President Tess Beasley
