We are a small, sincere community of Zen practitioners in West Seattle. Please join us any Sunday morning for meditation in good company.

We have moved to Fauntleroy Schoolhouse in West Seattle! We are still hosting zen practice at 9am on Sunday mornings. As always, if you want to learn how to practice zen, call or email and we can get you started. If you have prior experience, just drop in at 9AM and join us!
Please join us for our annual Buddha's Birthday Ceremony!
The ceremony begins this Sunday, April 19, at 10 a.m. with speeches and general merriment, followed by good food (bring something to share).
We'll also have regular Sunday morning practice, beginning at 8:15 am. Join us in West Seattle!
The Ancestral Teacher's coming from the West only means that winter is cold and summer is hot, night is dark and day is light.
It's just that we vainly set up meaning where there is no meaning, create concern where there is no concern, impose "inside" and "outside" where there is no inside and outside, and talk endlessly of this and that where nothing exists.

Talking about opposite worlds or absolute world or complete world is an intellectual style where more explanation, more analysis becomes necessary.
Zen only points to the moment world, the world of this moment. This moment is very important. It has everything in it.
In this moment there is infinite time, infinite space. In this moment there is truth, correct life and the Bodhisattva Way. This moment has everything. Also this moment has nothing.
If you attain this moment you attain everything. This is the teaching of Zen Buddhism.
