Zazenkai—All-Day Sittings

Mountain Gate Zendo

Coming together and supporting each other in the great work of delving into the deepest stratum of our mind to experience the inherent stability and joyfulness of our true base; this is what is most needed, most necessary in the world today. . . Please understand, you have inherent in your very Mind a huge potential, an incalculable brilliance, an ability to see the reality of this moment clearly. But without taking the time and putting forth the effort to penetrate to this deepest clarity of mind, without that deepest realization of this true Master, we will never be able to actually perceive who we really are, who it is that is actually alive, what are the characteristics of our true self, this boundless brilliance, this constant freedom and joy.

—Shodo Harada Roshi


We periodically schedule zazenkai at Mountain Gate. They are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with an hour break for lunch between noon and 1 p.m.

The morning segment will begin with an opening talk and there will be teisho during the afternoon segment. People are welcome to join for the whole event or for the morning or afternoon segments, but anyone joining must stay for the full length of the segment(s) signed up for. If you have not received the notice about this zazenkai, please email Mountain Gate via the Contact Us link.
