ZEN BUDDHIST CENTER FOR INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE
address: 401 Yamanashi-Ken
Zuigakuinwas founded in 1978 by Zen Master Daigyo Moriyama and is unique in two aspects.
First- in its intention of reestablishing a way of practice as Zen Master Dogen has pointed it out in the 13th century.
Second- in its attempt to provide access to foreign Zen students. Everyone is welcome to share in the daily schedule of zazen, sutra chanting, meals and work.
The temple is located deep in the mountains. There is no electricity and telephone. Life becomes simple and clear in the presence of sounds, silence and the rhythm of nature.
Thus Zuigakuin provides ideal circumstance for the preservation of mindfullness in all our activities.
INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE CENTER
Zuigakuin conducts relations with many Zen groups and centers in the USA, Brazil and Europe. At any time several languages are spoken. Besides English also French and German, for the time being.
A branch temple is located in the South of France under the direction of Rev. Joshin Bachoux, one of Moriyama-Roshiís dharma heirs.
