Circle of Zen practicianersContemporary Zen in the temple and on the path of service.

In an old story, a Zen master is asked, “What is the most important teaching?” The answer was simple: “An appropriate response.” There is a great value placed on the ability to respond to what is needed in a generous, well-considered and precise way without hesitation. We are amazed by what we can accomplish together in the spirit of spontaneity, hospitality, generosity, and unity.
