"What we are doing is not reprogramming ourselves, but freeing ourselves from all programs, by seeing that they are empty of reality."

Center's Description
The San Francisco Zen Center was established in 1962 by the late Shunryu Suzuki-Roshi, a spiritual descendent of the 13th-century Zen Master, Dogen-Zenji. Today, Zen Center is one of the largest Buddhist sanghas outside of Asia, home to a diverse and growing community of priests, lay people, teachers and students. The three Zen Center practice places are Beginner's Mind Temple in San Francisco, Green Gulch Farm in Marin County, and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, the first Zen training monastery in the West. We are dedicated to continuing Suzuki-Roshi's style of practice, which flows from the insight that all beings are Buddha, and that the practice of sitting in meditation is itself the realization of Buddha nature, or enlightenment.
