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."

Sunday Meditation & Talk with John Tarrant & Friends on Break Today

December 12 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

No Sunday session today, come back next time! John Tarrant returns on December 19.


Meditation is not a task with a known goal. It’s something you can’t do wrong, a chance for the things of this world to come towards you and to meet you, for doors to open by themselves, and for us to see where the ancient paths lead. 

—John Tarrant Roshi and all of us at PZI


We remain in a PZI Zen Online format for these weekly gatherings, in this time of transition and gradual re-opening. Join us in the PZI Digital Temple on Sunday.
